Hahahahaha! ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D


Did you anchor the back of the car to a tree with a rope to get a "4 Wheel burnout"? I cant do it in my 300WKW 440WNM STI, an NA car and auto will never!


The XT is the best selling Subaru for a reason, simply because it is the best Subaru.
These are not Ford Kugas

that is serious power sniper, well done!! :)


Thanks JPC, Check out my build thread in the garage section, most images are broken links unfortunately now with the PhotoBucket Policy Change.
The StormTrooper is very intense!!

ROTFLOL! Put your money where your mouth is, I'd bet money Hilton could out-drive you in ANY event.  ;D

If a N/A Forester's pulloff is "brutish" in your opinion...


Why, Thank you Sir!!!


Wait... that is a compliment isnt it? ;D ;D

Put a bigger hood scoop on.


To achieve what exactly?


You've heard of the venturi effect right? You've also noticed the scoop design changed... ever wondered why?


And now explain to me, what a bigger scoop will do when you are stuck in Bumper to Bumper Traffic, as the smaller one creates a nice path for hot air to rise off the motor, through the TMIC and into the ATM, creating dreaded Heat soak.

Best thing for any engine is air. Take out the cats(who needs cats anyway. All they do is yeowl and suck food).
Decent exhaust. Don't fit a cyclic air filter. More noise, more fuel consumption.
Took my bro in law for his first ride in a Subaru last week. He drives a Kia Spottage. I have an automatic(South African for AUTO).
He was amazed at the PULL my car had. Really in 2nd had him going. His is a diesel with much more torque.
Subaru has maintained a legacy of 4 wheel burnouts. We managed it once.
If you want a burn-out car or burnt out car, I strongly suggest an XT, no offense to XT owners.
Even though I have a N/A, the pull-off is still massively brutish to most other "soccer mom wagons"


Hahahahaha! ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

So....


For those still following this thread, The Michelin Cup event 2 was a RSR track day.
Everything was prepped and the car was ready for a day out on the track.


During my first session, I was having some fun warming up the car and finding my lines on the track in an ACW rotation.
I was pushing one of my Rivals around in a nicely modded S3 sedan.
 
6 laps in and disaster struck, an Oil breather pipe from the right-hand header had perished and torn, with the tight corners on RSR and the speeds we were playing at, most of the engine oil was pushed out of the opening. An Oil pressure had alarm sounded, and I backed off, but the damage was already done. The unmistakable roughness to the engine was there.


I nursed the car into the Pits and confirmed the worse.


Engine rebuild is underway with parts on backorder from the States.


She is being rebuilt to a 2.2 Stroker and getting some much needed upgrades to the internals and some.
More details when we have her up and running again.

Thanks SAV,
RSR is an awesome track.
Can't wait to get back on to it with the uprated brakes and the E50

Quick update for those interested,

The trooper has had a few changes made in the recent months.

At the Michelin Cup Event held Red Star Raceway, I had the unfortunate event of realising the limitations of the Yellow Stuff Pads.
Three laps into the first Session, I did my first propper Hot Lap and got 2.14
So I Pushed a little harder for the next one.





Now for those of you not familiar with Red Star, it was built as a motorcycle racetrack with tight corners that close in on you and almost straight away the next corner is on you. Great for motorcycles, terrible for cooling car brakes down between the bends.
That said, because of its motorcycle origins, the track has vast spaces of safe run off area. An amature Racers dream.
Making it a favorite for the car clubs and competition series as a venue for the occasional track day.



After not having enough time to cool the brakes down as we were running clockwise, I hit Corner 9 way too fast. Started to head on to the dirt on the right side of the track and over corrected and put the car into a sideways slide. Overcorrected again and sent the car sideways facing the wrong direction through the dirt for what felt like hundreds of meters.
The whole time I was just waiting for one of the wheels on the left to catch a divot and send the car into a roll, luckily it didnt happen.
The dust cloud can be seen at 3:23 in the above video

I was shaken up so nursed the car back into the pits, but had ZERO brakes. I had boiled the fluids and had stream pockets in the lines.

That Week PowerBrake sorted me out with a proper solution for the cars duty.
New RS discs were installed up front matched to ME20 Race spec pads
The rears got a set of ME22 Pads, and all this matched up to Endless RF650 Fluids

Then along came a set of Dark Blue STI injectors that needed their caps disposed of.
With some TLC and some 600 grit wet paper the caps had vanished, in they went and the car visited the Foughter for some loving.
I installed a dedicated switch for the E50, and Chett tuned her up to an astonishing power delivery and massive torque Output...
so much so that this happened...


SOCSA hosted a Kart Track Day at Zwartkops. On Launch i sheared the output driven shaft from the centre diff to rear Prop shaft.





3 weeks wait to get the parts in from Japan, and she is running again.

I am itching for the next event.

A few Developement of late...



Clutch was not in a good state, so a new Exedy Stage 1 Heavy Duty was shipped in from the states.
Whilst getting fitted, we did a few mandatory deletes;
Purge valve delete with associated vacuum lines, and brought all oil breathers to a tempory OCC. Three track days later, still no oil in OCC! 8)


Then I recently broke the stock engine mounts, yes BROKE!
So have fitted a set of BeatRush Poly Heavy Duty Engine Mounts



BeatRush on the Left; Stock on the Right

Plans have started to get the car onto E50 - decapped injectors have been procured and car berry ROM will be flashed over the ECUtek ECU, still allowing for map switching and a nice daily ready 95 pump map LOL!
