I dropped mine off at 945 and it was done by 6. And I wasn't the first in line. All I'm going to say tho is that its worth the wait. People who rush don't do it right.

Nice! Yeah, CCA has an amazing team. Chris leads well, and manages his projects accordingly.

Agreed, I'd rather it be done right than done hastily.
My comment was directed to the fact I need to be able to coordinate my days off to be able to be without a car for a day. Busy life, yo.

Thanks! This is my winter beater bumper so it will stay dipped. I've got 2 other bumpers to enjoy. Lol. The dip should come off easily. I cleaned and claybar'd befor laying down the dip.

Farmerbob, you gotta understand that when you increase the power over stock levels and run the car hard competing at events ….things are gonna wear faster than they normally would. Seems common sense and a given….but general public people always seems surprised when something like this happens when they do a big upgrade.

People just getting into Subarus saying they're junk….lol. Well, you didn't do basic maintenance….you nearly doubled the horsepower and the car only lasted 135,000 miles…yeah, a real piece of ****…lol.

you get my drift.

Well new clutch would have gotten a different one but spending that much on a twin disc clutch was to much another time for that one

Curbed and put a hole in a tire on my way to work tonight.
Gotta grab a new set soon.
Man am I glad that my lug nuts are the same size as the spark plug wrench I just happened to have with me!

Thinking I'm going yo do the six lug conversion on the BRAT so I can go to a 14" tire. 13" has become a real dead end tire size.

That or you could look for a set of 14" or 15 Peugeot rims. They have the same bolt pattern as the early Subies. I had a set on my GL10 sedan. Not as hard as you think to find.

Be aware , larger wheels and tires require cutting or lifting to prevent rubbing.

Yeah, there is a pair of pug wheels in homer right now for sale. But I can't find any local.
I was planning to stay under 26" to avoid lifting and cutting for the moment.
