WOW Looking good! Goo Devils! 🤘😎Red Devils Mini meet today:
According to STi Japan/NBR Challenge crew, "if you apply tension on the rods, connected on the crossmember, the car starts turning as soon as you steer". Basically improving steering response and feedback. This will be the direction of my suspension build adding more JDM STi parts. I already noticed the steering feedback last monday when i did my back road cruise, i will add more tension later to the rod and see if will give me more feedback.What are those tension rods supposed to do? Do you feel any noticeable difference after the install?
The only documentation that i got is the information that it was used in the S207 and BRZ tS. I am sure STi Japan has the data for this part.Hmm curious about these sti bolts. Is there any other documentation as to what they provide vs stock?
Yes the extra thread is not adding strength, the shoulder part of the bolt is thicker and does locate the bushing sleeve much better. There is a JDM subaru lower stopper that suppose to be installed with this but i already have the beatrush stoppers.The extra thread engagement past what's on the original bolt isn't adding strength. A thicker diameter does. Thread engagement depends on the material your threading into but a typical ideal condition for steel would be 1.5 times the bolt diameter. You have that with the stock bolt already. Perhaps the longer bolt is to mount a thicker suspension piece? The extra thread makes no sense otherwise.

The shifter panel experiment/swap i did is from a 2015 WRX 6MT and fits directly to the STi:Where did you get your center console shifter piece? Stock is a circle around the shift lever and you put in a rectangle "STi" one?
