Default New STi Owner from RI

Hey All,
I recently bought my first Subie. It's a Java Pearl Black 2004 STi and I'm in love . I've been racing Autocross, rallycross, hillclimb, and stage rally for 6 years, and never drove an AWD car until now. The car is already caged and logbooked for rally. It's a just a little bit quicker than the Neons I've been racing, so I don't think I'll be hitting any stages with it for a while, but it'll be ready when I am.

Welcome and TRY not to put this one into the trees like the NEON @ Okemo, that looked pretty scary.

Dave, I don't know if you're seen this yet but it might be a chance to sort out the new ride.

Thanks for the heads up! This is very tempting. I was planning on going to the hillclimb at Mt. Burke, but now I'll have to think about it.

Got my first trophy in the STI! 2nd place in novice class at the NER SCCA's Rally Against Leukemia TSD Rally. Not bad for my first time running a TSD!

Haha at least you finished! I wasn't expecting to do well at all, seeing as we went about 6 minutes off course when my codriver misread a note. There were two legs we were way off on time, but I guess the rest of them we were right on the money.

Nice to see a Subaru being put through its paces! Do you mostly stick to SCCA events? Do you have eventual plans of turning her into a dedicated rally car?

I'm planning on keeping it on tarmac for a while, but that doesn't mean no rally! I'll be running the season with the New England Hillclimb Association in 2015, and I'm planning on running ESPR (Eastern States Performance Rally, tarmac rally in NY) in April. The car is already logbooked through Rally America. I ran an autocross with ADSI and a track day at Thompson in the last month. I think I'm getting the hang of driving this thing!
