Had a great time! The AutoX was a blast and very educational - surprising what I forgot from last year's Subifest AutoX. Many thanks to Warren, the AutoX instructor with the silver Integra - he helped show me what lines to take with my "taller" car since I don't have a turbo to mask the wrong cornering. I certainly saw it in action - Some of the turbo cars would put down similar or worse times than myself and I had half the horsepower!
Was hoping for a break for lunch so I could get a bite to eat, but I ended up waiting till we were done with the competition. I did come prepared, so I had water, Gatorade, and munchies so I wouldn't die of starvation or dehydration. Unfortunately, being in the AutoX, I did not get a chance to view the car show and vendors till afterwords, so some had already packed up and left. I did get a chance to talk for some time to the Moroso rep about old school Subies - he liked seeing our old gen Subies playing on the AutoX and he is on the lookout for a EA82 series wagon to build.
Food was good - lines were much shorter than last year.

Overall, had a great time and can't wait for next year!

And yes, the ORGANIZERS are in charge of EVERYTHING happening there. If you have a pig flashing his lights rollin on 26s then you have a control of the ppl revving the car RIGHT ASIDE to the raffle happening and where the kids were running around! Are you ******g serious with your questions? Get outta here...

I love reading the comments after these large events. I mostly enjoy comparing the feedback generated from the East Coast (WBM) vs. the West Coast (Subiefest). It is funny how the East Coast is thankful that an all Subaru event is even an option there, and the West Coast just expects it to happen. It is also funny to see how everyone will critique the event and make lists that state how bad it was, or how they feel it all should have played out. Overall, I think southern California is straight spoiled and unthankful that there are enthusiasts out there that are willing to make these events happen. It is rather embarrassing to see the comments mostly talking about how long they sat in line, or how they were tired from walking all day, or how they got thirsty. C’mon people, this isn’t your first event and by now all of you should know these events go down and what this is all about. In case you don’t, it is a time to get together with fellow enthusiasts, drink beer (Yes, you may have to bring your own), eat food (Yes, you may have to bring your own), and hang out with good ol friends. One could even go as far as buy or sell parts the day of. Its unfortunate the mind set that is in the SCIC.

I would like to personally say thank you to several people for making this event happen. Robert, SoCalF4 with many close friends, and all the volunteers, here is a big THANK YOU for all of your efforts in keeping the event chugging along in Southern California. For those that are unaware, there was a lot of volunteered overtime spent to make this possible in addition to funds, and day of chaos control to make this event possible.

According to the FAQ of the event, this was not allowed and you would be thrown out if caught doing so. There should make a swap meet like area where people can sell/buy used parts.

^ That comment was worded for the individuals who don't live their life in black and white like you seem to. Also, that is actually a very good suggestion about having a used FS section. You should put that in the survey that went out a couple hours ago.

exactly!! unfortunately i wasnt able to attend Subiefest this year, but damn, so much complaining on here. what about everything that people enjoyed? Seems like people get too caught up in the bad things (yes, every event has issues), that all the positive/good things get overlooked. If scic keeps complaining after every event like this, whats to say that the organizer/owners of these event dont just say "F-it! we'll take this event elsewhere to people that actually appreciate what we are trying to do."

Big thanks to Robert, Socal F4, the volunteers, and to everyone else that had a part in organizing/running/promoting Subiefest! And of course, thanks to everyone that was able to make it out. there wouldnt be events like these if no one turned out. I'd like this event to continue on for years to come!

Hopefully next year i'll be back!

Idk, maybe I am a bitter person, but an event of a such volume HAS to have better organization. Just because you rented a big open parking lot and charged 15 a pop (more for the other ish) does not make it a great experience.

Not to mention theft and revving the crap out of the BS hondas on the way out.
You are always welcome to volunteer to help make the event better next year. Yes, improvements could be made to the organization, and as the guy in charge of that you can bet I'm already making plans to fix issues.

As far as the revving, every revving car I talked to was a Subaru. Hard to catch all of em.

As has been pointed out, every item was announced, not sure what you are referring to.

Speaking of things that 'disappeared,'

Our friends at Cusco USA had a shift knob stolen out of their show car. If anyone has any info regarding this, please send us a PM or give us a call. Most companies keep their cars locked at shows. Cusco was generous enough to have all the doors open for everyone to check out the goodies inside, so it really sucks that someone would go and do something like this, especially at an enthusiast event that had an entry fee..

Very well said! People need to realize that this event doesn't HAVE to exist. It's put on by choice by people who genuinely want to give back to the Subaru community that has been so good to them. I think a little appreciation from the SCIC would go a long way...

One thing people fail to realize is there are things we do not necessarily control, the fairplex does. Such as the fact that 5 events were going on that day and I believe all 5 entered though gate 17. I know for a fact the off road show did which was huge.

That's only one example of things that are out of our control and believe me we did our absolute best to get that squared away.

Another issue was that fact that nearly 70 people emailed me inquiring about volunteering. 42 showed up to the mandatory briefing we held the night before and the next morning only 21 showed up to actually volunteer.

It is what it is. We have to expect things like that to happen but there is no way to plan for it. We just don't know ahead of time.

Above all I feel we did a good job working through the issues. Was it perfect? Nope. Was it fun? Hell yes. If you didn't have fun then you were doing something very wrong. Look at the big picture guys.

Lastly a big shout out to all those that volunteered/ made this happen. We learn more and more every year about how to make this better which is why it continues to grow. Don't forget we are enthusiasts just as all of you. We own and love them, drive them every day, and just want to meet new people from all around.

Too bad I clipped a cone, or my 53.6 :shameless plug for a suv with an a/t: would have gotten me third in prepared. There was some quick cars and good drivers out there!
