Thought it would be easier to cut'n'paste from previous post. Even then there are differences between the v.ltd's (WRC) and the std type r's. Best wait for one of the other owners to come on and let you know the exact differences between a sti type r and an sti.

Think the main differences are the shell (2 door), and the drivetrain..different type diffs/ratios, different ratio gearbox (closer gearing) and the famous DCCD. (in car adjustable centre diff than controls the torque split from 35/65 to fully locked at 50/50. ).

last part of above post...^^^^

Power is the same but due to the gearing it does 0-60 in around 4.1 secs, 0-100 around 9 secs but tops aout at around 145mph insteasd of the 155mph the sti will do. 2 door makes the shell a lot more ridgid. Its basically the same as an sti RA but with 2 less doors, dccd and some driver comforts like a/c, climate control, electric windows/mirrors etc....

You have to drive one back to back to make that comparison.

More smile for your money - basically.

And, a little more exclusivity over the 4 door cars, even the RA's and other specials.

Well how many people can I upset. I have just bought a VEr6STI Type R and given it to a rally car builder who has just removed everything to weld a cage into it and do his stuff to turn it into a rally car. I got some bits to get rid of interior bits mainly.

Well guys and girls, Im finally jumping ship, she's in the For Sale section and on Fleabay and this time she's def going....

I've loved every minute and feel privilaged to have owned one of the best Scoobs (IMO) ever built, only to be eclipsed (but only slightly ) by the
22b

Im really going to miss her but Im sure I'll be back in the not too distant future with another 2 door (wide bodied variety )

Here she is

Jeff.

on a simalar line the other day my son had knocked my dccd into lock and i didnt notice untill i went to move away from a tight parking space which required full lock of the steering, there was a cluck and the car was unwilling to move is this normal? or do i need to be worried about my diff?
