SB3 needs a dedicated journal, Snowbordr!

Do eet! Dedicated Crosstrek journal for your SB3! I'm interested what mods you'll be doing.

Yokohama Geolandar A/T-S tires near wear bars, heavily worn and portions of tread cut due to off-roading
http://i.imgur.com/spGykYn.jpg


Temporary Pending OBD-II Code, P0302, under maximum weight, steep uphill grade, slow driver in front, heavy load (lots of near-WOT or WOT), 87 AKI
http://i.imgur.com/BORwJx3.jpg

Pending code went away when switched to higher grade fuel of 89 AKI and 91 AKI


Brake rotors have surface crazing or cracks, may be cause of shudder during high-speed brake application, cracks became very visible after spirited driving with maximum weight loaded

These are from my trip to South Cow Mountain OHV Area, pictures will be posted later.

46214 miles to 51610 miles, oil consumption check.

2.1875 U.S. quarts consumed in 5396 miles.

That's an about a rate of consumption of 2466.74 miles per U.S. quart consumed.

And a view of the driver's seat while parked, got my new STI Duracon Shift Knob as I was getting tired of burning my hands on a sun-baked shift knob in the daytime despite the sunshade.

A month ago, I had to change my tires. I chose the stock tires (Yokohama Geolandar [H/T-S] G95A) as my replacement set of tires due to the fuel economy, reasonable pavement handling, and half-decent off-road usability.

I was sad to let go of the Yokohama all-terrains, but my commute is just too long to continue taking the fuel economy hit to get another set.

Redid and added some black Plastidip with the help of a friend.

The following mod has been installed:
* Subaru optional Roof Spoiler P/N E7210FJ600TQ w/ custom black gurney flap ["41 Inches BMW M3 Style Trunk Lip Spoiler" sold by burtonracing on ebay]

So I decided to take a quick photoshoot at a Subaru dealer.

My 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek Premium 2.0i 5MT next to what I presume to be a 2015 Subaru XV Crosstrek Limited 2.0i CVT.

Well, I have a bit of a problem.

The Gurney flap isn't fully effective because the rear spoiler flexes. It's not completely rigidly mounted.

Didn't get around to solving the rear spoiler flex issue, but another issue came up.

Somehow, I ended up with a cracked windshield...
