Haha.. Yeah, I've dropped the clutch a few times in my 02 WRX. As long as the wheels spin alittle it doesn't hurt the drivetrain as bad. But if you have chunky tires on (ex. winter pike snowtires) and you drop the clutch, the WRX doesn't have to power to slip the wheels causing the clutch to hit very hard. Found that out when the car wouldn't launch at all! lol.. I wouldn't mind having an STI.. But then I wouldn't have the Trans Am...
