Yeah, it is so far, but I'm sure it's ready to blow at any second. The 4 puck isn't going to help either...

Also, took a couple shots with my brother's 2011 MS3.





If anyone is interested in photography, these were created using the Brenizer Method. I shot them using the Canon 135mm f/2.0 on a Canon 5D (full frame) body. Each shot is a composite of 10 individual shots. This give the effective field of view/perspective/depth of field of approx a 38mm f/0.6 lens!

Very cool pics. This process sounds interesting and I'll have to read in to it when I have some time. I'm glad to see someone else shooting Canon, it seems like everyone I know shoots Nikon!

Thanks. It's hit or miss. Some crowds are all Canon and some are all Nikon. I think overall Nikon has the edge though.

We did the 3 mile road course at BIR last summer when I was on the stock turbo and E85, he was Stage 2 pump gas. My car was a few seconds faster, but we really didn't "race" to see how close things would be. As I posed in the other thread:

We'll be going to the track (road course) again in about a month, so we'll see how things pan out now that I'm on the new turbo.

Correction. He informed me that he was still Stage 1 and was using the COBB OTS 91 octane tune. He should have considerably more power this time around. There will be some other Subaru's there that are closer in power to his car, so maybe we can see how those compare too.

No, you have more. I did see some other Subaru's on the list though.

And watching your Go Pro footage vs. the little bit of footage we got, I think you'll be chasing him, lol.
