Much to dangerous. I see no reason you can't get inside of it though.

LOL. I see what you did there. Sorry I did not get back to you. I got your google message while driving a box truck in East Liberty. That requires all of my concentration. I am much more comfortable snapping off branches in the country with it LOL. I will most likely be at the next meet. I should be off on Wednesdays by then. I may not have a subie at that time though.

That will not be permanent . I am thinking 05 sti...or legacy outback xt. Not many of those been fooled with and less than the LGT sedan due to low marketability when equipped with a manual. Pretty sure most of the lgt stuff works on it. Whatever it is it will not be modded much until it becomes the third or fourth car.

Don't think I'll be able to make it to anymore traditional weds meets. Switching to four 10's in the next couple weeks, will be working mon-thurs till 7:30 or so. Friday's off though!

Hiring a new employee and extending office hours, pretty excited to have Fridays off to do work around the house and allow me to actually have weekends instead of being tied down to house work all day saturday and then spending sunday realizing it's sunday and that I have work the next day.

That is a great schedule. I work tens now but the off days are split and I have to do five of them. The reason I left the car biz was because of split days off and five ten plus days......

Lot's of cool places to stop along the way once you get up to Indian Head and beyond. Tall Ceders in Donegal comes to mind.... if it's still there LOL.
This is my stomping ground. Road quality isn't always awesome, but as far as corners and elevation change there is plenty.

I tried to get a Linn Run cruise together a year or so ago, great state park in Donegal. The park just fixed up all the roads too.

Anyone have any experience flooring a basement?

I laid some old junk carpet I had for around 2 years and it stayed perfectly unmildewed. Not sure if I can just use some sort of breathable padding and carpet or if I need some type of subflooring or what. I've read both straight carpet is okay and that subfloor is required. I ask locally because I think it has a lot ot do with where you live.

Thsi will be on a concrete basement floor.

Vern, you forgot to mention the most important part, it comes with a warm and lovely local group of enthusiasts.

Anyone here interested in a set of brand-new-in-box Prodrive springs for 02-03 WRX? These are the blue "Sports springs" from prodrive. - P/N:44S/D5/001

The box has just been sitting on the shelf and it's time to make some room.

Something happened to my Romraider setup though, as it now never sees my ECU defs or logger defs no matter what.
I wonder if when you were uninstalling and reinstalling the adapters they used a file that Romraider used and it got corrupt?

I saw a product at HD and on DIY that looked interesting. It was squares of wood with the dimpled plastic that you put around a foundation on the bottom of it. Put the dimples down and install whatever kind of flooring you want to on top of it. Good idea if you have moisture in your basement. If it is dry I can't see a reason you couldn't put carpet directly on the floor. If it gets damp maybe an indoor/outdoor carpet may be better.
I would check with a local carpet guy just to be safe. There is a good forum I use at http://www.diychatroom.com/ and they have really helpful folks there.

Dricore is like 7 bucks for a 2x2 square. I saw a rollable plastic sheet that would cost a lot less but still several hundo

Those are great to have. Because when you needed they can save your ass, the snap on scope has about a 8mm head and well a big price tag

Yeah, the thought crossed my mind, you are perhaps more non-committal then myself.

I'm really digging owning a new car for once.

05 sti if you don't want the mechanical center LSD
06 sti if you do.

All other years suck*.

*See the interwebz for the definition of 'suck'.
