Started noticing that my clutch on the wrx is slipping under load in the higher gears. (Hwy speeds, 3rd-5th gear). I'm probably going to get it checked out next week but outside of the clutch should I be looking for anything else in the transmission? If I wait a few weeks am I going to have a bigger issue to deal with? 92K on stock clutch currently.

That's just about the most textbook way that a clutch starts the end of it's life. I think you'll be fine driving it for a whilst, just don't put it under high loads.

Yeah I know their trans aren't the best which is why I'm wondering if I can wait or if it's a little more urgent. Would probably replace it with a stage 1 or stage 2 clutch but it would be nice to do it after the new year if I can.

Just keep driving it :dunno: None of us can tell you when it will get so bad that you can't drive it anymore. Just don't beat the shit out of it or let it slip when you're in taller gears and it will last a lot longer.
