hahaah Wayno it seems these guys are in Sydney..

I think my guys can easily do that. My shave is very close to that apart from the firewall as ive still go the boooster and they have flattened out the firewall..






Plus my car is driven/thrashed around the track.. lol

Like what theyve done with the undercarriage though... but i think i may just put an ally diffuser the length of the car or use the stock one from 05 STI..

P.S D get some pics of your undercarriage i need some ideas..

You could always sit the sheet metal flush with the brake booster mounting area. Since the pitch mount is removed it should be a straight shot across the front of the firewall... that way it would get rid of all the contours of the stock bay and get the same affect.

Looking at Tino's painted bay, this should work

Run it straight up to the wiper cowl

You could also remove the brake booster and put the sti grpn booster in its place.. i was thinking about doing that but apparently you need big legs to push the brake.. haha

But wot tim said will work as u have a little bit of the chassis to weld the panel onto..

I wish i did that now, but i was a virgin at the shaving process.

Ya i was thinking of that when i typed it, is that the one Jacob is running? I was thinking also maybe it's heavy to provide more rear traction, do you think putting a lighter one would give me less rear traction?

How's your trip bro, did you find any goodies yet?

Hey Tino, did you remove yours? Are you running a lighter rear bumper beam, did it change the rear traction at all, or did you notice ant difference? It has to weigh close to 50lbs...

No still got my cannister there.. i dosent weigh much in the grand scheme of things and my car isnt really a light weight to begin with

Also havent bothered with rear support beam.. but i would think depending on how much wieght u save with aftermarket it may have neglible affect on rear end traction..

Rear bumper is the least important as far as removing weight goes; it's weighs closer to 25lbs really. Their lightweight front bumper beam and subframe are where it's at.

Ya i took it off and there are 3 lines going into it, i'm going to talk to my shop and see what they say. Frank was in Main rallying this weekend, but Dan he's brother showed me this new brake system on one of there rally cars, they delete the ABS and run 50/50 split with no brake booster and a special trick STI MC. It looks very very cool. Now i can get rid of the brake booster

Sadly i forgot my camera, so no pics it!

Who is all getting the mags? Give me all there addys in the package please...

Thx bro, glad you like it. Same to you man, your car is looking sick!

After a long chat with Frank from 4star I won't be running the STI brake boost delete, it's far too much work without any major gains!
Were just going to delete the abs and put bigger rotors and pads.
I saw some cool drifting videos last night and got a great idea to spice up my rear bumper, I'll post some pics of a few versions tonight so you can help make up my mind...
