Weakest gear/s in 04

Here is my understand of gears in the wrx.(sopposedly) 02 and early 03's had the weakest gears of all. Late 03 and early 04's were next in line ,a little stronger than previous (04 has two sets of of codes, one is early weaker and the other is stronger). Late 04 and 05's had better gears than all the rest. 06-07 is another story. My question is, my car was built in late 03. I also have the weaker gears (by trans code), but in my year and code, does anyone know which gears are most likly to fail. Everything right now is fine, smooth and no grinding or anything.
Thanks
Ryan

It sounds like you answered your own question. If you have the oldest set then there ya go.

Yea, but what I mean to say--You know how the 06-07 owners say that third is there weakest gear. Well what is the 04's weakest gear

I'd say every gear.
But if you looking for one in particular, I'd say 2nd because everyone loves to dump into it outta 1st........snapping the teeth right off.

Well my car never has to worry about being launched at all... my wrx==
I noticed that 3rd seems like a power gear. Meaning where the car wants to wake up and go. I will only get on it once I am in 3rd+ , but I never slam gears going into the next gear though.
Thanks everyone

I actually feel like 2nd to 3rd can be made very smooth with a decently hard throttle. Took some practice to get the footwork right though. But 1st to 2nd, forget it I don't care how good your clutchwork is.
