The thread that wouldn't die. I hit 100,000 this weekend. I was on a 1000+ mile/week commute-only pace for three years until I finally got a job close to home.

About 95,000 on my 02 WRX.

I'll be joining the club in a month or so....



So, Pete: You ain't on the original struts still, are you?

Sheet, mon!

I know you've done most of 1,000 of those on rough, unpaved surfaces...

Does it still handle well when cornering on asphalt?

I ask because I just replaced mine (with KYB AGXs) because it was getting to the point of being really scary to drive fast on pavement. Tons of body-roll was making the thing break loose WAY to easily. It was fine on effed-up dirt roads, just not on tight paved corners.

I know I don't abuse mine any worse than you do yours...
Just curious,
M

To be honest I don't drive near the limit on public roads much anymore anyway, but I'm sure it would handle better with either new or replacement stuff, just gotta save up the funds, maybe for a set of these:

Yeah, that's some cool lookin' stuff... quite a bit more spendy than I went, though.

I was able to do mine for around $100 per corner. They probably will be easier to break than those Tiens, but on the other hand, I could afford to replace 'em when they do...

160k on Slynki. Gonna try catching up to you, which should be easy at 100 miles/day

You were at 131 4 months before I was at 182, and now that I'm at 212, and you're at 160, i.e. it took you 4 more months to cover 29,000 than it took me to go 30,000 miles- you think you're catching up?

Better keep driving Slynki on weekends....

although with the "bend over and spread 'em" gas pricing back in vogue, I'll probably be cutting back from my usual mega-mile trips, so there is an outside chance you might close the gap a little over the next year.

131 was with Svixen (my beloved SVX). She found a new home, and I now have slynki running me to work...and everywhere on weekends, especially since she only takes regular.

2k/mo. in commuting mileage alone. I don't expect to catch you, just keep a close pace.
