Still need to get the rear wheels a little further back, but there is no rubbing anywhere, even over very large bumps at 45mph. I think I'm also going to put some 10mm spacers in the rear, it just looks so much more sunken in.

... So much hate. These cars earned their reputation on the stages of the World Rally Championship, not as herrafrush show cars. They're allowed to get dirty.

I think it's great. Are you going to be rallycrossing, or just playing around? Needs mudflaps either way

Back on topic:


Plastidipped my car today. I tried everything that I can affordably do to patch up the previous owner's accident/paint damage from the front end and just can't get it to a point I'm happy with, so I tried this out. Still drying that's why the texture is all funky in the picture.

Maybe it's a safe winter setup? I hope so...

I made an effort to replicate the color used on the 2004-2005 JDM STi headlights, so it's more of a gunmetal/chrome/black look.
theres koji mod, and black housings. there is a difference, but its semantics

looks good.

Well I love it. I will be doing rallyx with it, that is the main reason for the change. It is nice to be able to drive over a pothole again and not worry about breaking my back anymore. I know some people love it and some hate it, but Subaru is famous for rallying, not being herrafrush.

Post up more pics! I have a lot of road damage on my front end, and a real paintjob is too much $$.

<sigh>

Do you guys not know what your cars are bred to do?

Thats a widebody wrx set up for high speed offroad rally.

Its a thing of sheer beauty... I'm older so my opinion counts more.
