None. This is a total new type of racing my team will be entering into. Starting out in the open light class with a 2.5 n/t awd STI. Lots of exsperiance with fabrication and road racing. Should be a interesting exsperiance. Please follow for my page for more updates and progress.

Cool, was hoping you knew Rally America won't let you run the turbo car as a novice.

Personally, I would buy a ready to go 2.5RS or cheap FWD car to get my coefficients and then build the turbo AWD car once you've raced for a season or two.

The n/a STi has enough power to get you up to speed but it's heavy and won't have the power to pull out of things if you get into trouble.

If we did not already have the car then yes. The chassis will actully be very light weight. Should be around or under the RS weight.We know of many ways to loose weight with these cars. Our current TT car will need weight added to make class min. Thanks

If you have the cash for it it wouldn't be a bad idea to do a high compression ratio build then swap pistons for a low compression turbo build afterwards. It wouldn't be a bid idea with using an ej257 since you already have avcs to control cam timing and adjust your power output to your liking.

Are you guys planning on using any sort of anti lag system once you get passed your two year mark?

We are in the process of building the engine to a 11-1 compression ratio. As for anti lag iam not sure. we will have to see where this takes us.

Progress on the road race car build has been slow. Most efforts have been towards the rally car lately ..

I'd build for Open Light as the end goal. That is the best class right now, lots of local competition. More fun fighting for seconds in a fun OL car then being minutes behind the Open Class guys with $$$$$ and years of experience. Plus, if done right, the OL car can have a nearly better hp/weight ratio than the typical SP or Open Car (excluding factory teams)

Planning on running Open Light . With all the new Rally America rules and updates of this season i think we are looking into other classes and organizations ..

What rules and updates this season are you referring to? IMHO, there hasn't been much change lately in car classes/specs in RA!
