Need a little advice

Ok, I have drag raced the WRX a couple times now. I've gotten my lauches and my shifting down quite well. My R/Ts are .026 or better on a street tree. I haven't been able to drop my E/Ts below 15.0 though.

My only thought is that its from the gearing in the 03s. 1st, 2nd, and 3rd are RA gears. Would that be part of my problem?

what are your 60 ft times, 1/8th mile times and your trap speed? it's hard to give you advice when we don't know how you are really doing. do you have any mods or are u bonestock? your finish time is not affected by your reaction time. the time starts as soon as u leave the staging line.

rollin on 17's now and they're dirty

I never heard that '03s have RA gears for gears 1-3. What I have heard is that in the late '03 models the gears are 1mm wider, which makes them the same width as the RA gearset, but not the same. The gear ratios should be exactly the same in '02s-'05s.

As someone posted before, what is your trap speed, and your 60' time. A decent 60' time is less then 2 seconds and with a good launch you should be close to 1.8sec.
