Default 2012 STi Getting Some Track Love

Hi all,

My previous subie in Vancouver


I brought my STi to the track for the 2nd time and she held up under the heat.

Place: Guangdong International Circuit, China
Event: Lapping Day/Time Attack (April 18-19, 2015)
Temperature: 28-32 degrees Celsius

Crossing the border (Hong Kong to China)


Pit shots of my budies and myself


Lining up for group photo


Opportunity to clean up all the wheels


Blitz Oil Cooler Kit



JDM Recaro to keep it OEM


Here is video of my lap
https://youtu.be/8tHydtuptNA

For reference, low 1:3x is considered pretty fast on this track. Heavily modified Type-Rs (FD2) can hit high 1:2x with a very good driver. If I can shave off another 4 seconds next time I would be pretty happy.

Mod List:
Tomei Extreme-Ti
RCE Tarmac Zero
RCE F/R swaybars
Whiteline F/R endlinks
Whiteline roll center kit
Whiteline steering rack bushings
Whiteline comp-c top hats
Stoptech slotted rotors (Front)
SS lines
Hawk DTC70 (Front)
Motul RBF660
Motul 300V
Toyo R888
Damd steering wheel
Defi BF boost, oil temp, oil press
STi Recaro seats
Zerosports I/C splitter, radiator shroud

PS: Hopefully I can gather some action shots from the photographers who were out shooting...

Cheers,
Kimutaku

I'm assuming you've probably been asked this question thousands of times, or will be. Where did you find your seats? Great build you have going, thanks for sharing!

I got those seats off a local member and he got them from his JDM source. We are fortunate to be somewhat close to Japan and so we can source JDM parts relatively easier and probably cheaper too.

Ahh I see, thank you for the response. Those are very nice, and rare! Congratulations on getting them!

Yes they come with airbags and sliders, basically a direct bolt on. Local laws here are extremely anal on mods, so I'm going OEM.

They are very supportive with great side bolsters.

I got them for a whooping $1500usd in super mint condition. Actually I'm not sure if that was a good deal... Lol

Nice. I am looking at Recaro Sportster CS but those do not come with the side airbags unless they are Euro spec. Which then still isn't US DOT approved, since aftermarket airbag. Kind of odd since Recaro makes many OEM seats...

I will have to check these out and see if they are as good as the Sportsters.
