FasTrack is great, highly recommend them (right of Centennial Drive in Peabody). I cant see myself ever bringing my car to chain/franchise place if i can help it.

For the Forester I thought i'd stick close to home and Hogan seemed like the right place to go. They had previously helped me out when the RF numbers on my Hakkas were weird/bad but there never was a problem and all i did was have a few conversations with them about it. Again, they work is fine but they clearly needed supervision. The desk guy was nice and all but he tried to sell me a brake job that isn't really needed yet (close, but not yet. plus, rear pads but not front pads??), had to talk to me about the "sensors" which i didnt have on the wheels to which i said a little piece of electrical tape takes care of and i thought he was going to fall on the floor when i told him i'm running 265s on 18x10s at -2 camber. Maybe it's the B team on Saturday mornings

I like the time and attention they put into alignments. Scott the owner did mine and made sure it was spot on. They don't roll fenders anymore though. The guy they had that did it is gone and took his roller with him. Berto at Motive did my roll

Had my 350z last year at Fastrack for aligment to get more negative camber to drift. They did an amazing job. Alignment guru right there.

Most likely Scott. Guru for sure. I believe he is one of the scrutineers for COMSCC. He smiled when i told him i had adjustable front camber plates and rear lateral links/trailing arms

Probably going to get judged, but I just bought a 98 outback sport to use as a DD and to have until I can get the WRX fixed. It's looking like I blew out another transmission.

Haha just wait until I post pictures of all the rust, you'll probably want to take that back. I have to replace the rear subframe before I can even drive it. The thing is completely rusted away.

Rust = ultimate weight reduction. How much did you pick it up for?

$600 it has 122k and like I said other than the subframe and the rear quarter panels the thing is mint. I've never heard a better running motor and the tranny was smooth. It will make a good DD.

Are you asking me to teach you or do you just need practice?

i wouldn't worry about heel toe anytime soon. focus on learning to drive stick without having to think about it first. all the mechanics of it should just happen (for me, i'll frequently go through complete downshift motions in my wife's auto FXT just because that how my brain/body work. sucks when there is no clutch pedal there but at least she gets a good laugh out of it)
