Default hows your JDM loving this -40 weather

i know theres a lot of cold start issues with a lot of subys on this forum so I'm wondering hows your car starting in -40

my V2 STi has been starting no issues what not.i just have to warm it up but there was 1 time i warmed it up maybe 9min then as i was driving when i hit 40kph it started making this sound similar to the sound when you push one of those toy cars with those keys you have to spin.. anyways after a minute or so it disappeared. it seemed like it was coming from the front right tire area but i couldn't really pin point where but besides that car has 0 problems

What was the diff position? And were you engine braking at all? Even letting the car slow down using the engine,

Nope no engine braking. From 0-39 it doesn't make a sound but when I hit 40 and up it's there but disappears after a while. This also happened to my old wrx when it's extremely cold but also disappears after driving a couple seconds(20sec)

Its starting fine, but if I let it it sit overnight then all day the jdm battery doesn't have enough power to crank her over.

We don't have the temps you guys are getting, but we are getting colder than normal here. The Land Cruiser is coping fine, but I'm pissed off at myself for not draining the water that is in the washer fluid bottle in my B8 I thought about it the other day, but was too lazy to change it out. Now it's frozen. I'm hoping it hasn't cracked the bottle. I was going to put some proper fluid in it, so I tried taking off the cap, but all it did was bust off...F&$K!!!!!

My v1wrx sat outside all night, starter turned fast, had a low idle for about 3 seconds but it was all good. It was really cold this morning too..temp outside the house said -34 and its out of the wind so probably around -40 or so...panasonic battery that came with it!

Transmission took awhile to warm up, along with the clutch...wasn't really perfect untill I got to work.

I'm up north at work... My car is sitting outside until next Wednesday. Hopefully my battery warmer and oil pan heater will be enough if I plug them both in overnight... Finally I get to put them to the test!
