A little backstory... I've always been into cars since I was 8 and found out my dad was an RX7 freak. So naturally I got into it too. I have a C5 Corvette and had a S13 240 built drift car with an SR20. I absolutely love the Corvette but needed a more comfy daily driver. So when it came down to it, I had to sell the 240. It was sad seeing it go away on a flat bed, but it meant the car hunting could begin. I was looking into the GTI, Golf R, G37, Mazdapeed 3, 370Z, CT200, IS250, S2000, 135i and 335i, but when I test drove a WRX, I fell in love. I ordered a brand new one in December. Only bad part about it was waiting 2 and a half months because of the World Rally Blue Pearl color.

So the platform we're working on is a 2012 Subaru WRX Premium (WRB).


Mod List

-Invidia Q300 Titanium Burnt Quad Tip

-AEM CAI
-Cosworth Forged Pistons, Rods, and ARP Studs (SOON)

-STI Rear Bushing
-Sparco Seatbelt Covers
-LED lighting
-OEM All Weather Mats

Suspension
-Stock for now

Wheels
-Stock for now
-JDM Pot Calipers
-Mystic Blue Muteki Lugnuts

Here it is the first day I picked it up with Dad by my side. First thing I did was order HIDs, the taillight overlays, and got to 300 miles, so it was time for a mild 2k-5k shift break in. I absolutely had to get the unamused sticker. Shifting was a bit sloppy so the Kartboy bushings and short shift kit was necessary, along with some funny stickers.

After the 1500 mile break in I had to flash to Stage 1 because the stock tune was horrible, so I picked up an Accessport, some Hellahorns. Had some friends over for "Stage 2 Day'. Coincidently I was the only one not going Stage 2 lol. At the end is a picture for proof, I actually use the rally car for what its made lol.

I'm going to stay at Stage 2 for a bit. Then suspension and wheels and enjoy this thing. Planning on getting on StanceNation hopefully. Never enough stickers and they all have a meaning

Talking December Update

Merry Christmas to me. Had to get some more power. Oh hello Stage 2. Invidia Q300 and Invidia cat-less full tbe. I then decided the 3k fogs were kind of a pain so I got Nokya 2500s and yellow covers. Started to wire up my AFR and the rest of them mocked up along with my Accessport. Kind of bored until I get my BC coils and my wheels so I decided to plastidip my wheels and have some fun. At this time I was moving out so I wanted to see what i could get to fit. needless to say my whole drum kit fit. As soon as I got home I wanted to test out some TE's from a friend.

Default The other cars...

The beast needed a fresh fluid flush so I got a rental. This thing is great on gas and not to shabby but I missed the WRX so much! In case anyone was wondering..

Pics of the baby and pics of the slut I sold for the Subie.

I got my first sponsor GrimmSpeed, the car was very dirty after playing a bit in the dirt and the Hellahorns being blue was boring me a bit so I took this opportunity and decided to take the bumper off and paint them white, along with a few daylight pictures, and a typical gas station pictures.
