From the footage holder I am guessing it is A canadian wagon. CASC and Autocross ring up references to Ontario.

Yup, Thats me in my 96 with its 2.2 litres of fury

First vid was last years Solo2 Big Weekend for the local provincial series. I organized and won my class too.

What else would you like to know

We are running the same event in the same location, an old airfield again this year.

On the second video I lost on the third run, as I blew a shift.

The 240 finally won the event, not much of a comparison.

I'd like to know what mods you have, suspension setup, etc... The car sounds mean and moves really nicely! I have a 96 with a 2.2 as well, but it doesn't get up and go like yours does haha.

Also, that picture isn't working, so have any other pics?

Mod list is pretty long, however most is "questionable looks only" It is my daily driver, and has over 250,000Kms on it now.

The only Performance mods are:

Whiteline 18-20-22 RSB with the fancy gold endlinks (Outback RSB 4 winter)
SPT WRX catback - custom install of course
Whiteline Flat-out leggie wagon springs
KYB AGX struts
Leggie GT sized front rotors with Hawk HPS all around
GC Alum front control arms

Other mods are subjective:
02 WRX front seats - Heavier than stock
JDM front headlights/taillights
JDM Side blinkies
JDM Front bumper - summer only - back to stock for winter
Newer Steering rack, as the old one sprung a leak
GT hood
GT rear wagon spoiler.

Its an "L" AWD model, so power windows etc.

Thats pretty much it - Wish I had more to tell you

Funny thing, a week before that event, I replaced my VF39 with a custom 600 CFM turbo, and the net result was a cracked cylinder. Too much powah from the open deck block. So Andrew was nice enough to lend me his Leggy for Day 1 of the event.

Ya.. Booost baby, this year's "Rumble at the Strip" event will be bigger, faster, longer (over 2km) and an awsome technical event.

Yup, still rocking the BE, but only the shell is a BE.. LOL Everything else has been um er uh enhanced.. LOL

In the 2nd vid above, that's "me" on the microphone for the "Anti Street Racing" event for the local government folks. We try to be active politically to help ensure that our hobby stays in the "positive" light. The orange 240Z in the video, has an RB26 in it with lots and lots of powah!!

Pic is now working? Server must've been screwy when I tried last.

I'm real excited for the summer race season now! I've got an outback RSB and eibach springs. Exhaust, intake, and pulley. Only thing I don't have is upgraded calipers/rotors. I do have new rotors and pads on there. So my car should be about on the same grounds as yours.

What PSI do you run at front and rear? Do you have your car aligned prior to a race, or run it as street spec as far as camber and toe?

That is cool to hear. Done a lot of work lately then I see.

Also good to keep our sports in a poxitive light. We unfortunately lost a site due to excessive tire noise and neighbors that didnt like it.

That wagon was awesome though, regardless power output, it is a bit of an ego killer when you get beat by a wagon. HA ha

Yeup, EJ257, Wiseco pistons, Eagle Rods, Custom Turbo, FMIC and many many many more custom stuff for this boat. Oh, still with full interior too.. LOL

You'll like the VF23, it's not huge power, but it's very linear. Makes the car feel like it has a V8, and the boost delivery is amazing, boost climbs as fast as you push the go pedal.

Andrew's wagon is awsome, it does lots of unnatural things with very little provocation. For a 2.2, it's really quick, really nimble, handles amazing. When Andrew lent me that car for Day 1 of the event, I competed in my own class FSP against a gutted supercharged VW Scirocco sporting Hoosiers. As an underdog, the Leggy wagon led most of the day against the Scirocco, the Wagon was heaver, had less power, taller, and had less capable tires, but it out handled the scirocco like crazy. I lost on the last run by .2 seconds putting me 2nd in FSP or something like that.

When Andrew has coilovers on that car, it's even more nimble. Amazing wagon!!

Yea the USDM grille is a little too tall, that JDM grille in the pic is a little short. You should pick up a Rev B JDM grille. Youve done all the hard work already. Very nice as tho.
