Why the premiums as it's probably only a difference of a coating on the mounting hat?

I use whatever is cheap at Advance. With coupons it usually comes out to $25/rotor.

Stock Subaru 15 inch wheels. All I've been running for 12 years. Have only bent a few and the broken ones, no wheel would have withstood what caused them to break. As sureshoot007 said, $20 each. Some of them don't look the prettiest but they get the job done very well.

Yes, with a little grinding off the caliper. I imagine Zimmers book talks about it. Now wait, you said 4 pots. I'm not sure. I was referencing 2 pot WRX size rotor setup.

Good point! Didn't know that .
So 2006 WRX NAPA ULTRA premium rotor front - $71.49, rear $68.49
or NAPA premium front $33.99 cheaper than rear $41.49.
Wow...

I don't think any 15' Legacy wheels will clear WRX 4 pots on the front.
Or might have to do a LOT of grinding on the front caliper.
They might clear rear 2 pots. I have 15' legacy wheels now with my winters on the stock RS calipers and it's already tight.
But it if 15' Legacy wheel clears rear 2 pots I could use them on the rear and no need for extra set of Team Dynamic wheels.

"I can't tell you the number of times I've beat Ken Block, just because he crashed and I didn't." love this quote!
Since your investing heavily in your car why not invest heavily in yourself? Consider Team O'neil 5 day rally school. It could end up saving your car and your rally dreams!
there is BIG difference between rally cross and stage rally. I spent a lot of money and time building an open class car, I love it but in retrospect I could have been racing 2 years earlier if I had followed the EXCELLENT advice as given here. Good luck and see out there!

$250 on mudflaps?
$20 flaps set from any stpre cut to size will do the job
even 2 of $2 sets of IKEA cutting boards will hold for a few days =o)

Yup, rallyarmor branded $2 cutting boards


I know the guy selling Jon Bottom's old open GD STI, complete with your choice of motor (full race, stock sti, or even an NA if you want). I think he said he'd sell it with a fresh NA motor for $12k...and that's with spares, and proper suspension, logbooked, turnkey, ready to roll.

Default control arms

Looked at rear suspension -
rear trailing arm - just hollow - not even 4 sides - just 3 sides.
Rear lower control arm - also hollow with 3 sides.

Looked at front suspension -

Control arm - all hollow sh..t

Is there anything bolt-on -swapable from any WRX or STI that is stronger and heavier?

Leave it stock. You can bend that stuff back in a pinch. With STI control arms or tubular ones, they break and you are SOL.

Ask Carl about his off at Ojibwe. Cracked tubular control arm ended the day. I still finished a stage on a bent stock control arm after crashing once.

less upgrades is better for me. But as an option Whitetline makes rear control arms kit for GC Impreza $460. They are HD steel and adjustable.

Make sure you buy two sets, so you have spares.

(Eff that - I think my friend who works at the salvage yard can get the spare links I need for a lot cheaper.)

You also have to ask yourself, "If I make this part REALLY ****ING STRONG, what's going to break instead?"

I bought the rally car Jard did a lot of those rallies in, btw. It looks like a piece of ****, but it's fast, and it will be relatively cheap to fix when it breaks.

BTW, my fiancee and I bought the car together, so thanks for showing her how much money we saved.



My friend Simon is building an Open Light rally car out of a 1995 Impreza. You should check out USUK Racing on facebook for more info.

Plus the cost of the car. Plus rally suspension? Plus spare wheels and tires (you're not really going to show up with just the set of four on the car, are you?). Plus lights. Plus whatever else we're both forgetting.

This is why I jumped at the chance to buy J's car instead of turning my 98 2.5RS wagon into a rally car. And I already had all the mechanical things on the wagon (or in boxes in my garage), just needed the safety things at the time.

Good luck, regardless. I hope you get it built and have a lot of fun with it. Just don't overspend on a bunch of crap you don't really need and then end up not ever racing it because you ran out of money. Seen too much of that.

I had a car for a while. Bought it for 4,5k from the nurse who was so meticulous with maintenance and repairs.
Suspension - I'll go with Bilstein 50mm by John Vanlandingham. He is engineer and mechanic. Used to race motorcycles in Europe. Currently mechanic with a rally team. He uses Bilstein 50mm and valving and damping taken from DMS. Struts has reinforced ears. He uses linear springs. Promised 190 mm front and 220 mm rear travel. All for $2200.
You right about extra set of wheels and tires and light pod.
All should be all right.

I think J (screen name 'dirty' on here) has a set of those sitting around that were used as spares for half a rally. He would probably give you a good deal on them if he knows you're putting them on a rally car. Send him a PM!
