nice car and sweet setup. i gotta offer my opinion in regards to your tie downs though. i dont really like the way the straps are x'd in the back. they are almost parallel with the rear of the car and that will allow for the car to move forward and back. you should try to get the straps more parallel with the sides of the car in stead of the rear if you know what i mean. it looks like you are trying to stop side to side movement and you dont really need to do that. sorry if im over stepping my boundries i would hate to see your car come off the trailer!

RdRacer301....I enjoy following your events and your cars progression as well. Appreciate you sharing your work, car, event images and video. Hope you are not out of the game for long as you have talent. I'm hoping to have a good time at M-O, will be my first time there and hopefully not my last.

sti6yr, appreciate the comments and observation. That was my very first load and pull (only went like 3 blocks never exceeding 30 mph). Ended up doing the tie-down in the dark and it was like strap it and be done with it for now. It goes on again on Saturday so more attention will be paid to proper strapping for the trip to M-O. Again, I'm a first time hauler and appreciate the constructive comments from all.

Private group track rental for some exciting lapping all day Monday! This will be me =>

Also, noticed this ring around my CF driveshaft! Darn differential is moving enough that there is contact with the driveshaft at the forward top edge of the differential mount (picture coming). Spent about an hour or so clearancing the differential mount, and thought may as well install the Kartboy hardened bushings. Hoping that once I get the outrigger bushings in Saturday that between the stiffer bushings and clearancing the differential mount that I no longer have contact!

My attempt to pace with Coolblue05's Widebody Sti:




An issue discovered before track day:



Issue after track day which I thought was resolved, it appears I just moved the contact point. I'll be installing Kartboy outrigger bushings hoping it resolves the CF driveshaft contact with the tunnel issue. First picture shows original contact point, second picture shows no more original contact, but a new contact point about a foot away. I noticed on hoist that I can still move the differential up and down due to soft OEM outrigger bushings.


Image of one of the outrigger bushings showing gap (which to me indicates opportunity for unnecessary movement):




First picture:




Second picture:



First issue resolved picture (ground away some material covered with blue paint):

Next up: T2 Coilover, added A pillar gauges (Defi EGT-AEM AFR), more bushings, Grp N engine mounts, Crawford V2 AOS, TIC titanium brake insulators, '05 style rear bumper cover with wheel opening visors and Whiteline trailing links installation. Prepping for Waterford track day in July.

That looks like pretty deep scoring on the ACPT driveshaft. I have the driveshaft and fortunately no rubbing but I second the outrigger bushings. They were a very easy install and to me made a large difference in the feel of the rear - one of my favorite mods.

Yep, it would appear to be deep to you, but just catches my fingernail, so I estimate less then a mil. I"ll be living with the scoring and we will see what happens. Thanks for the comments about the outrigger bushings. Would have had them installed before my Mid-Ohio trip, but just ran out of time.

If you need an extra hand, just PM me. I probably can't offer any installation wisdom, but I can hold something or bring another set of metric wrenches.
