The clutch is still smelling bad on mine and I have 23,000 KM. I will be bringing it in soon and get it checked out. I have done some hard launches but not enought to cause any problems. Other than the smell the tranny is running great. I get most of the smell when I put it in to reverse.Gumpajim said:I noticed my wrx clutch smelled pretty bad a few times but as the miles wore on it seemed to lessen. The STi seems to smell bad under hard use, it also may get better. Only 1600 mi on STi.
Keep me posted on the clutch. Might be just what the Dr. Ordered.Guru said:At 312 ft lbs of torque at the wheels, the clutch has a tough time holding especially for launching. I have a triple plate carbon ATS clutch coming in the next few weeks to remedy the problem.
