I like that digital speedometer! Does it let you know your RPM's as well? Looked like there was a shift light on it as well...Awesome footage...seems to be one hell of an STI!

Oh yeah! I love it! Subarus get no respect at the track. These old farts in their Ferraris and Porsches scoff at these "ricers". Then what usually happens is I blow the doors off of them. They stop by in the paddock afterwards to give props and check out the car.

The STI has a stage 2 setup, CAI, and cobb accessport. I haven't dynoed it, but I'm guessing it's in the range of 320-340HP. If you notice in the video, I have a hell of a time drag racing that red 911 turbo on the straight. I'm guessing he's putting out 450+. The corners are where my STI shines. I'm running megan coils, front and rear strut brace, adjustable lateral links, and rear sway. The interior is stripped out. Have a autopower rollbar and fire suppressant system. For tires, I was using 245/45/17 Kuhmo V710s. Great tires, but the front right delaminated near the end of the day.

^ nice footage man, it sure looked like some of em didnt wanna give the pass by.

What are your alignment specs?

Its odd you delaminated a tire, I would guess thats from lack of negative camber, oh and I think you would enjoy a larger FSB, the whiteline 27-29mm FSB is great, it helps turn in and helps our car resist dynamic camber losses.

Looked good out there, boy R-comps look fun!

I run -2.7 front camber, -2.0 rear camber, 0 toe front and rear, height is set at ~24.125".

I think the delaminating was due to not rotating the tires after 1 or 2 sessions. I usually run RA1s and rotate them after each track day. But these V710s are stickier and I think they need to be rotated more often.

I'm confused. Is fryguy & stifry the same person? After reading the post it sure sounds like it.

Awesome video. You were really taking those cars out of the corners. Very impressive from a Stage 2 setup. :tup:

I don't remember now. It was an Ebay HKS copy 3" turboback w/ bellmouth downpipe. The brand was something like Tsxxxba. It works great. You don't necessarily need to spend a ton of $$ to go fast.

Very impressed with your lines, great driving. :tup:

The guy driving the turbo, however, was driving like a rook heading into the chicane like that.
