The DRP 2022 Subaru WRX!

#TeamDRP at it again...doing things the only way we know how...the right way...follow us as we push the car to the limits and test how far we can go!

Prototype Items: All developed specifically for this platform by us and the manufacturer:

Coilovers

So far, they have been perfect, track time drastically improved with them, and they also perform well on the street without being uncomfortable, honestly a very good setup without spending huge money on high dollar coil over

Brake Kit

The factory brakes are probably the worst part of this car, the factory pads have lasted us 1 track day, and there were no replacement pads available. So beyond the obvious performance advantages to a proper brake kit, having availability of parts, and parts that will last longer then 1 day will be a huge advantage thanks to Essex Parts & KNS Brakes

Aerodynamics

Nine lives racing has been leading the way in the grassroots, affordable yet functional aero department for the last few years, reaching out to them to develop a functional kit for this car was a no brainer, and they jumped right onboard and have made this happen rather quickly

MoTeC

The car is not tuneable yet.. While we know solutions are coming, inevitably MoTeC is always the answer to set these cars up properly. Being able to work directly with MoTeC USA to develop this platform will be a game changer for everyone wanting to compete with this car

Other Parts and Upgrades...

Catback Exhaust

For our exhaust, we took a Tomei Ti Catback that normally fits a WRX Sedan 2008+ / STI Sedan 2011+, and customized it to work for our 2022:

Wheels and Tires

Beyond the obvious appearance upgrade, they are also a considerable weight savings and allow for a much more aggressive tire selection:

Gram Lights 57CR 18x9.5 5x114.3 38mm - Glass Black Wheel

Falken's Extreme Performance Summer AZENIS RT660 Tires - SIZE: 255/35ZR18

Short Throw Shifter

Honestly the factory shifter was a close second to the brakes for the worst part of the car.. 3-4-5 were very vague.. often resulting in the incorrect gear being selected, the shifter package from Billetworkz solved all of these problems

OEM Sport Grille

We wanted a new and different look for the front, so changed it out.

Custom Wrap

Who doesn't love something custom? It's not only unique, but advertisement for DRP 😉

Carbon Fiber Driveshaft

One of our favorite mods for any Subaru has always been a carbon driveshaft...Not only are they considerably lighter then OEM, allowing for better acceleration, but they remove all of the "slop" in the drivetrain that comes from the 2 piece driveshaft design Subaru uses...Pulling away from a stop has never been so smooth until you get one of these.

Front Mount Intercooler

It was time to upgrade to an intercooler that is designed specifically for the 2022+ WRX with performance in mind.
