Default Update on my RHD STi RA...IT DRIVES!

I bought this car from a member here about 2 months ago and I have been trying to get coilovers that fit, the right size tires, brakes, etc etc. I finally got it all together and tried to go for my first drive...

So yeah...the rear diff is shot and the car literally will not turn, the rear wheel just wants to bind when the car is trying to turn... easy fix the rear diff is 3.90 Final drive.

Getting some smoke out of the intake and possibly a light knock. Comp and Leak down to follow VERY soon. I think it could be a frozen or broken ring. The car has 24000 Km on in after 13 years. So its hardly been driven. The turbo is supposedly new so I doubt its that.

Good news is I finally gathered up all the parts for the brakes, suspension, new tires, painted wheels, interior issue etc etc...

wait, you have full sti rear drivetrain but have r180 axles with wrx inners? sell that rear for $150-200 and buy a r180 for 300-350. It's well worth it man!

That would be awesome, but I already found a R160 for free. I really dont want to sink anymore money into this than I have to until I get it running.

the lighting, the flares, the tucked bay... something makes this picture look like the frame is skewed by a few degrees... the way that everything seems to come forward more on the left side and pushed back on the right...

maybe i'm crazy?? were you test fitting the bumper or something? it just looks... off!

i'm quite jealous of that car though. i hope my 4 door looks that good one day.

The lighting is wierd cause its a shop light pointed at the car...the Bumper is not attached its just resting on there.

I stood in teh door way and held the camera above my head...doesn't surprise me that it looks a little skewd
