Default My corner balance/ alignemnt from Jason @ Innovative Garage

Today I met with Jason (DTC STI) at my work in SLC to get my WRX corner balanced and aligned. I have never had a good race alignment before and cannot wait to drive the car.

Surprisingly my car didn't really need a corner balance as the car was already 48.8% cross weight with me in it. Jason spent about 6 hours total aligning the car to get it just right, we opted to run a little more camber on the right side of the car seeing how I am setting the car up for MMP and there is more right hand turns than lefts.

Jason didn't mind taking the time to go back and forth over and over again to get it perfect. He also had no problem taking the time to explain everything he was doing. I definitely recommend Jason for corner balance and alignment and will be doing business with him again. Here is a picture of the car on the scales, better pics to come shortly.

We'll save that for when I corner balance your car Jason. We'll just need more people there so it doesn't get awkward, ha ha ha ha ha

By the way, Thanks Kentrik and everyone else for the kind words. I try. Happy to spread my knowledge and grow the sport. Would love to see more Subarus in the line up for MPRA.

3105. Still a pig, but its lighter than before. Which is what I was worried about. But I still have more weight to lose if I wanted to.

Yeah, that would be my next step. There are a few other little things I can get rid of still that I have not done yet. Water sprayer which is no longer functional, trunk latch etc.. As well as the passenger seat while racing. Keep in mind this is without me in the car.

48.8% cross weight is awesome for not really doing any corner balancing.
Front left: 983, Front right: 995
Back left: 618, Back right: 709


Weird how the front left is lighter, when I am sitting in the car. I think I can even out the rear a bit more by removing the water tank. But for now, I am more than satisfied.

That is strange the right side is heavier. How much fuel was in the car when you did this also?

About 1/2 tank. IIRC. Didn't really think to look.

I guess the right side does have my turbo and other goodies over there.

Last time the car was weighed it still had factory passenger seat, back seats and the old bolt in roll cage with trunk interior stripped. As well as the old turbo setup and no surge tank.

Maybe more fuel in one side of the tank? The fuel pump/ hanger, charcoal canister, and water tank are all on the passenger side.

Unless it was written down incorrectly. I blame it all on Jason!! I'm sure he will post up again.

Maybe subaru uses heavier metal to compensate for the weight of the engine on the front to maintain balance. It seems like the front would still be heavier though

Well yeah its obvious the front will be heavier, the engine is there. But the right rear has no more metal than the left.

It's gotta be fuel all over on one side.. that's all I can think of. The charcoal box is over there, but that weighs what.. 3 pounds? And your exhaust hangs mostly on the driver's side so that should offset that anyway.
