Re: oldlady's 2010 pms red hatch thing.

well looks like i'll be going to Ridge Motorsports Park on July 7, and ORP July 14-15. Any Washington or Oregon IWSTI'ers going?

Car is slowly (but surely) getting prepped. Just ordered my AP to reflash to stage 1, Girodisc Ti shims, and just ordered Raybestos ST41/43 pads. Also picked up Whiteline rear diff inserts from Dales Motorsport (my alignment guy- aka partial sponsor! probably one of the most knowledgeable suspension guys in canada)

I spoke with the rep @ raceshopper and he said this is the closest I'll get to DS3000 modulation.. and for $70 less. should be okay for my casual lapping days :)

stoked! now for wheels and rcomps.. oh, and suspension? fack.

Re: oldlady's 2010 red turd

That sounds awesome! My next possible track day is July 28th, but I am nervous that the temperatures might be over 100 degrees, so I might have to wait until later in the Fall.

I might need new pads soon, let me know how you like your Raybestos.

I see a good trend in your track days, first washington, then oregon. Next stop... norcal :D??

Re: oldlady's 2010 red turd

Will definitely let you know how I find these pads :)

Just get some ducting and you should be gravy. :)

I've been telling my GF that I plan to do a road trip to Norcal.. hopefully this year.. hopefully!!

Re: oldlady's 2010 red turd

^ maybe.. ah.. ;)

so i decided to install my group-A pitch mount (not to be confused with a Group-N) tonight. hip hop hooray for better on/off throttle response!

also JUST noticed that the car came with a gt-spec front tower bar. lol.

Re: oldlady's 2010 red turd

been a week since i reflashed the car. only driven it twice.. been driving the forester XT around. lol.

i guess it's smoother? my butt dyno isnt operating well these days.

anyhow, got myself track wheels! 18x9.5+35 PF01 in black.

i really wanted a minimum of 10" but the price was too good to pass up.

these wheels actually look much nicer in person than in pictures.. :eek:



now for tires...

Re: oldlady's 2010 red turd

The PF01s look great in person. The 18x10.5 +38mm look nutty because their lug seats are really deep. :lol:

What tires are going on them?

Re: oldlady's 2010 red turd

I am unsure at this point. those 315s I mentioned would be too much for this little wheel.

and i'm trying to be cheap too so it doesnt help :lol:

Re: oldlady's 2010 red turd

hmm, used tires is tempting. especially for testing/hammering purposes.

Wow. Very nice way to start my day. Popped by my alignment guys shop to get some tech forms filled out.

First thing he asks "you got something sent here?" I looked absolutely confused. Then he shows me the box.



... My qrack.

Big thank to the qrack guys who worked their asses off to get this to me!!!

It'll be installed on Tuesday along with my new to me KW V3s.

Just in time for lapping day next wknd:)
