Just remember the 17x9.5 +38mm RPF1 requires a 5mm spacer to clear the brembos.

Mine are already on the way but thanks, I guess!

I read about your accident at the track. At least you're alright.

The car shall be rebuilt...better...stronger...faster. We have the technology.

Seriously though, best of luck to you and the car.

It was a joke Thank you, the safety equipment definitely did its job. Only had a few bruises and a tweaked ankle.

She'll be back, after what the car has been through so far a little flesh wound can't keep her down!

Yep... both drivers side wheels are bent/cracked. And the front drivers side Tien strut is sheared in half.

This is why I can't have nice things...

In for service! Swapped the stock BBS wheels back in with my very worn 225 star specs. This will probably be the last event for them. I also lowered the rear about 3/4 of an inch. The front was ok so I just left it. I also eyeballed some camber in for the front. Twoish degrees I'd say? Who knows When I get my RPF1s on I will get a good alignment.



The nice gouge in the driver side caliper from a rock during the rallycross I went to.



Ready to cone.



I've been suspecting a bad wheel bearing in the rear recently and I took my dad for a drive after I swapped everything. First thing he said,"Is your rear end about to fall out?" LOL. I guess it's pretty bad, I'm just used to it. Got me thinking though. The sound isn't really like the sound of a normally bad wheel bearing. It's more like a rear diff howl. Either way I'm not worried about it for now. I'll throw it on the lift one of these days and pinpoint where it's coming from. It would kinda suck if my carrier bearings were shot.

Default Re: Willub's 04 STi: AutoX prep!

Had a nice day of autocross yesterday. The car feels really good and totally different on the coilovers. Me likey. I got first in Street Modified but by no means was I fast. There were only three drivers in SM including myself and my co-driver The other was an old modified volvo 240. My co-driver decided to spin on his first run. Doing so he went off course and in to the grass while almost hitting a course worker The driver side front tire actually caught the inner lip of the fender and bent it out a little. I just massaged it back by hand. Guess I should have rolled my fenders already.

Here is my second and one of my slower runs. I left the gopro on by accident so I didn't get to record any afternoon runs.

I think my friend moved the seat up a little bit, and I either didn't care or notice. My arms look a little cramped! I charge quite a bit and don't set myself up for the next part of the course very well, and I can definitely go quicker through the slaloms. I just need to get better at driving the car. My fastest run was a 64.2. I would have been happier with a 61 or 62, but oh well! On my last run I dropped two seconds off my fastest clean time. I just need more seat time

I really need to do something about the IC heatsoaking. It gets HOT. The only thing I have is the SPT heatshield, which does nothing really at autocross events. I'll probably get a turbo blanket and wrap my DP. My friend just bought himself a new tig welder, which may be staying in my garage for a little while. Maybe I'll try it out and make some nice custom heat shielding like I planned on over the winter

I can't remember - did you pop your hood open between runs? It helps a ton with our cars.

pop the hood, spray the intercooler, radiator, intake manifold etc. with water.

the few gallon bug sprayers work great for that. I have a 12L Spec C tank and some irrigation tubing I use to spray my stuff down.

I have an extra sprayer you can have if you want. It's small but if you aren't doing the tires it should be enough. I got a new one because I needed more water for cooling the Kumho slicks. So far this season I haven't had to spray the Hoosiers but I'm sure I will in another month or two. Let me know if you want my other one and I can bring it to the next event you come to.
