Installing STi Splitters + V-Limited Lip on 2004 WRX Wagon
I have always viewed my suby wagon to be somewhat of an ugly duckling. Problem is, there are very few products intended for the WRX Wagon, which has clear exterior differences from the WRX sedan. Thanks to the good folks at NASIOC (North American Subaru Impreza Owners Club), I became aware that the STi Splitters and the V-Limited Lip can be installed with minimal modifications on both WRX sedans AND wagons--hence this video. I am very, very pleased with the results!
* Upper edge bumper slits - some have chosen not to make them and instead, cut off the splitter top tabs and use 3M heavy duty double-sided tape. IMHO, using the tabs is much more secure. After I cut slits with the dremel, I used a small drill bit to clean it of jaggies (not shown).
* Trimming Leading Edge - you may not need to do this on the WRX sedan.
* Attachment points - there are some holes in the stock bumper that line up and can be used--for the rest, you must drill your own holes. Both splitters and lip came with installation hardware.
* Lip install - the wagon is not as wide as the sedan, but if you get a polyurethane V-Limited lip, you can bend the sides in without problem. My lip never quite extended all the way to the back of the splitters--about an 1" gap (not terribly noticeable).

How to drift using E-brake (handbrake) Drift Bible
The E-brake (also known as handbrake) technique has its roots in rally driving whereby drivers used the handbrake to slide the rear end of the car to negotiate a tight bend that they could not conventionally turn around due to not having enough steering lock, or it simply being a quicker way of getting the car to "pivot" around a tight corner. The same can be applied to drifting, and everyone usually starts out using this method in drifting and most professional drifters continue to use it. Keiichi Tsuchiya takes us through the technique that should have you getting slideways in no time!
