Default MSP608's NASA TTA & Redline Street AWD build up.

Hey all. Some of you might know me, my name is Justin Mathews and I've been autoxing and tracking my dad's 04 STi for quite a few years now. Last year I got into time trials with NASA and had a pretty successful season. I plan on again running the car in TTA for NASA, but this year I'm going to give Redline Time Attack a go as well. No huge budget here, so the car will be running in the Street Tire class.

As many of you know, the 04 STi is plagued with quite a few issues, the small hubs being a big one. After destroying many axle boots, axles, hubs, and wheel bearings my dad and I decided a hub upgrade was in order. With all the stuff we are replacing, we are hoping to keep this set of upgrades at a relatively low cost. This also would not be possible without help from sponsors. After talks with many companies, I got a bunch of no's but a couple key yes's.

Turn In Concepts helped me out big time with gathering all the parts that I would need for the hub upgrade, and I will be also running a lot of their really cool goodies. Also, if you ever have any questions or need advice, call these guys up. They definitely know what they're doing, and they are true enthusiasts.

With the help of my father and half-brother, we do just about all the work on the car ourselves (minus an engine build). With all these parts to install, working on all of it in my brother's cramped garage wasn't looking so fun. After some talks with JJ at IAG Performance, they are helping us out by installing everything along with a few other things.

Even though the car is still on the stock turbo, I have taxed the OEM Brembo's pretty hard over the years. It was decided a caliper upgrade would help greatly. Howard Hsia of StopTech offered me a partial sponsorship on one of their big brake kits, so I'll be running the ST-40 calipers with 355mm rotors.

Since we are only upgrading the front hubs, we needed wheels drilled with both 5x100 and 5x114.3 bolt patterns if we still wanted the ability to rotate tires. Through a partial sponsorship with WheelDude.com we will be running Rota DPT's in 18x9.5 for NASA events, and 18x9 for Redline and street usage.

For Street Tire class at Redline events, I will need a catalytic converter. I will be partially sponsored by Mil.Spec and running one of their 100 cell 3" cats for 2010.

It was planned for me to be sponsored by Fortune Auto as well, but that deal fell through. I'm not sure if it's my place to say the reason or not. I will still be running their coilovers for 2010 though.

Now I'm sure you're tired of reading and thinking, where are all the pics?! Well, this of course isn't anywhere near as extreme as Dan's (boost junkie) build, but here you go:

First, a picture of the car from 2009 for anyone who doesn't know what the car looks/looked like:



Here are all the goodies from TiC:



My DPT's from WheelDude.com:



For NASA I'll be running 275/35/18 Hoosier R6's, and for Redline I'll be running 255/35/18 Dunlop Star Specs:



Look how wide they are compared to the 04 BBS haha!



My BBK from Stoptech. I can't wait to use them on track:



Fortune Auto coilovers (10kg/12kg spring rates):



Mil.Spec cat:



I got sick of having to run over a half tank of gas, so planned to build a surge tank setup. Since Dan (boost junkie) is going with a fuel cell on his next car, he didn't need his surge tank setup anymore and sold it to me. I'll be running an inline Walbro instead of Bosch 044. Here is what it looked like in his car:

Here's a pic of the car from yesterday on the way to IAG:


All the goods packed up to go to IAG!



I'm sure JJ will post pictures as work is done on the car. I can't wait to get the car back and test/tune everything at the track.

I'm either going to build a website or just use a blog to keep a running journal of this season. I will post that link here once I start it, but I will also post updates on this thread as the year goes on.

Here's to a good season!

We had IAG roll/pull the fenders to get the RPF1's and 245/45/17's on originally. Now they're going to pull the crap out of them to fit the 275's

Yep, still have the Brembos. They will be for sale shortly.

Do you have any pics of the brake duct routing on the passenger side? Myself and some others are in the middle of trying to figure that out and it's a real pain. The headers, up pipe, down pipe, and a bunch of other stuff is all in the way. Any tips?

What are the two circular things in the bags just to the right of both spindle/hubs?



BTW, sounds like a great project. GL this year.

Not to me. I see the seals, but what about the two bags with the aluminum pieces with the fins to the left of the seals? So immediately to the right of the spindles/hubs but to the left of the seals.

Yeah, it's definitely a real pain. I had it routed too close to the header the first time and fried some holes in the duct. I basically have it below the big u-brace most of the way now, it sits so low though. I'd like to have IAG run my ducting through the frame rail, but JJ isn't so sure about how safe that may be haha. Here's the only picture I have of it on the passenger side, from when I burnt holes in the ducts:***********

Since this 04 was produced early, I needed the newer axles as well. Those discs are required for the axles to mate up to the tranny I believe. Tony listed them as sundials on the invoice Not sure what else to call them.

And thank you. I'm really excited about all this. It's been awhile since I got to assemble a pile-o-parts. I'm hoping the testing and tuning goes smoothly.

Haha you did. I just have two threads (I hope the mods don't get mad). I sort of answered your question about the pads in the other thread. HP+ and HPS are listed as street/autox pads so they work perfectly for my needs.

What the diameter of your springs for your coilover suspension? They look like 2.5" from the picture. If it's 2.5", I'm not sure how you are going to fit 275 tires in there without using big wheel spacers.

I'm running 275 Hooiser tires and I have to run 2.25" coilovers to fit that size tires and 18x9.5 wheels.

What offset are your wheels? Mine are 35mm so I'm only losing 7mm of inner clearance over stock (call it 6mm since I'll be running the 1mm thick TIC HTS plates). Dan ran 9.5 wide wheels with a 42mm offset and 3mm spacers. That's 11mm less inner clearance, not sure the diameter of his springs though.

My wheels are Enkei NT-03 18x9.5 in 40mm offset. The thing that help me a lot is my slots in my coilover that I can adjust the camber with.

Again, if you are using 2.5" spring and high offsets, you will need to do extensive fender mod to fit those tires in there.

Have you try to fit your coilovers and your tire/wheel set up yet?

Looking good, should be some nice upgrades for this season. What made you decide to go with the fortune auto coilovers?

Even though I'm not sponsored by them for 2010, I was still able to get a set at cost. If I had stuck with the BC's I would have needed different bottoms for the fronts, and I'm also trying different spring rates with the Fortune Auto's.
