I think the codename for those high-tech flairs is the e-bay special deluxe.

Now, go for a ride in it:

That front bumper is awesome!!! I love the smooth lines on the sides!! Kinda wish they could have made the front air dam alittle smaller so it doesn't show the frame and intercooler piping, but for an aftermarket grill, I love it... This is very strange for me because I hate almost all aftermarket body panels for ANY car...

They currently race their EVO IX thats is un-godly fast. I'm pretty sure this bugeye is sitting in some storage place collecting dust.

All the driver's for every car, including the winner of this, has PLENTY of experience on this track; don't forget the winner gets Tarzan Yamada as their driver. Setup wise, they will at least get the day before for setup. We had one day of actual setup on our car and were having problems to boot and still did quite well for our first event and first outing of our new car.

True, true. I forgot that Tarzan was driving the winner car.

Day of setup is good, but some of those Japanese cars have setup down already and have so probably have a slight advantage.

Good points though. I totally forgot about Tarzan.

The fitment on that Element car's hood is terrible!

But the front ground effects look awesome!

Not unfair at all. I'm willing to bet that Yamada can help set up the car for that circuit and be competative. He's a pro driver that has driven on that circuit and knows what he wants from the car.

It usually costs ~$15 for spectators admission but there is usually a coupon on their website you can download for $5 off. I'll be at Laguna in the ShimmySideways STi but unfortunately I'm not eligible for Tsukuba since I run in Modified AWD. I'm anxious to see who the lucky Subaru team is though!

Hey man. Glad to see you won that Redline Time Attack at Gateway in both your classes. I was in the group that was hanging out in the Nukabe tent most of the day on Saturday during your practice sessions. I was the guy with the satin white pearl STi parked on the opposite side of the Nukabe trailor. I was asking you about your wheels on the Evo and both sets (street and race) for your STi.

Wish you guys (you/Brad/Nukabe) were competing to go over there.

More info on those flares would be appreciated. I have a grass roots racer that could use these... exactly what I have been looking for.

I check ebay and other sites, but came up empty handed.

Thanks in advance

WRC,

You know I saw those, but figured they were not it..

Since the subie pictured had black ones, I was looking for plastic abs looking flares... I guess he just painted them mate black and threw me off.
