I think you and I were thinking different things. I meant they can handle a pretty descent amount of abuse before failing...Then again proper shifting does play a vital role in trans life.

Well then yes, we sort of agree

It's still a pretty strong transmission, but in the realm of WRX/STI's it's the weakest of the bunch. They'll hold for a while but it's still running 20 amps through a 15 amp fuse, it's gonna blow.
