Oh, and it doesn't come across as much in this copy-and-paste version as it did in the in-print article, but the "Get Your Subaru On Track" part is comprised of quotes from the driver, Phil Grabow.

"That big wing really helps at high speed, so don’t take it off. You need downforce when breaking track records with your Subaru. If it looks ridiculous, it’s probably just right! Lower-horsepower Subarus will benefit from downforce aids that don’t create too much drag, like splitters and underbody paneling." Those are Phil's words, not mine. I just wish he hadn't given us such a hands-on demonstration.

The stars are derived from the companies that ccame together to form Subie

The stars via Wiki:
FHI was incorporated on July 15, 1953 when five Japanese companies, known as Fuji Kogyo, Fuji Jidosha Kogyo, Omiya Fuji Kogyo, Utsunomiya Sharyo and Tokyo Fuji Sangyo, joined to form one of Japan's largest manufacturers of transportation equipment.

The sixth star is to represent the one company they formed...IIRC

The seventh sister....well...she didn't have Fuji in her name

Are the stars really that big of a deal? Must we nitpick everything? Maybe consider this article as an homage to the car and the driver that made it out alive? Just a thought....keep it positive people

I always told myself and my piers that I loved this car so much I would never part with it. It was just so fun, so fast, and a great pleasure to drive. It's sad it never reached it's full potential but such is life. I'll have nothing but fond memories of this car and parts of it will still live on!

Thanks,
Phil Grabow

Damn. Caught up with some quick linking and such.

Im right now picturing an airplane landing, while approaching the wheels fall off the landing gear. Thats just not healthy.

What happens to carbon in a physical crash like that? I thought it just shattered/splintered but I think I see now that it evaporates?

This probably isn't the best example since there's so much effort put into the crashworthiness of the carbon piece, but it shows carbon in failure mode...

We used a custom valved and sprung set of BC ER series coilovers on the STi and our WRX was running a set of BC BR set custom valved and sprung to Element Tuning specs. We sell the custom valved and sprung sets here at Element and they are worth the extra lead time.

So far durability of the product has been excellent for us.

Yes I really am and it's probably one of the best purchases I could have made in terms of safety gear.

The Seibon carbon door skin actually held up quite well.



It just looked really bad since it separated from the weaker fiberglass inner frame.

You're probably joking but with no wink I'm not sure. The resin is cracked through but the carbon weave stayed together. I think it could be used after resin and some fiberglass patches were used but it would need to be painted.
