Why do you want a skid plate?

Do you want it to look cool or to actually have it serve a purpose?

Pretty sure Rallitek is out of business.

Damn! Will try calling tomorrow, that will suck. Figured skidplates for Subaru's would be a common thing considering their stereotype but did some NASIOC forum searching and doesn't seem like a popular item.

Serve a purpose, I don't buy things to look cool. Needs a purpose.

A skidplate could also serve as a splitter-sorta lol. It would serve as a flat panel directing air flow ha.

Rallitek is coming back btw; check out their fb page.

Also majorly off-topic but for anyone wanting a brake ducting kit for our cars: I purchased a brand new RCE brake kool kit from a nasioc member; long story short-it doesnt fit. The ducts overall diameter (that replace the dust shield) is wayyy to big and it's not even possible to jerryrig something together..

New plan is to buy some Rooducts and use the silicone hosing that came with the kit.

You may want to buy some aftermarket camber bolts for the front struts to get back to factory alignment specs. The '11 wrx has a wider track than our cars, so you will lose some camber adjustment in the process of swapping out your stock struts. Just FYI.
