1. Stock engine
2. Apex'i axleback
3. Strano FSB, Whiteline 22mm RSB, WL Steering rack bushings
4. I have no idea. Max front neg camber on stock bolts.
5. 245/40-17 Kumho MX

If I could change something:
Less front camber... I'd like to try Azenis next... Pink springs (or similar).

Results: No trophies at Ft. Myers Tour. My co-driver 'could have' finished at the bottom of the trophies with his raw times, but had a lot of dirty runs. He's been auto-xing a Miata for the last two years -- hit all the cones with the right side of the car... The car drove pretty well, I didn't.

Why is that? You probably have around -1.0 of camber with the stock bolts and -2.5-3.0 is what has been determined to be optimal for the Impreza platform by competitive autox'ers.

Uh, yes. -2.5 is LESS than -1.0. I just feel weird saying "more negative" camber. Oh, you're reading it as "Closer to Zero camber". Hmmm. I can see that point of view. How about more anti-positive. no.

I'd prefer the tops of my front tires to be closer to the inner fenders than they are now.

That's STX, not STU. 245 tire width is consistent for both though.

Ha!.. 'setup'!? ... my setup is crap:

stock except for:
cat-back
Hotchkiss sways f/r
RT615's (245/45/17) on 17x8 Torques.

I know, I know... 'pretty much worthless' , but I'm working on it! I was waffling between running AS or STU this year, so I didn't do much (yeah, rear sway would have had to come off, easy).

The waffle landed syrup side down, so I went STU

4. Whatever I can get out of it in stock form, but then again I don't have the issues that struts do.
5. Azenis RT615 255/40-17 on Enkei RP2 17x8 et38

If there were someone locally running BS I'd be there with the same setup except for 245/35-18 V710's on OEM wheels

I retired the Subie from AutoX only to graduate it to RallyX.

You forgot the light crank pulley and recaro pole positions.

Anybody actually test different spring rates yet?

And I agree with Dave that we need more camber for sure.

Gee Max, I thought Mako and Jeff kept saying the 615's were the tire to get Of course, now almost all the //M3 guys in our region are on those now - just much larger than ours

Will be interested in seeing how the KW V3's will stack up against the other brands . . . . . . Just for me, until I find a job future, all activities are on hold.

Nice ... how'd you manage that much power on stock boost? That's about as much as a typical "off the shelf" stage 2 map.

The dyno reads high and Jarrad and Tim from PDX have mad tuning skills.

Well, I plan to make the switch before the first points event this season... I am not very prepped... but the driver is evolving, gotta learn!

1. Engine: Stock
2. Exhaust: Borla XR-1 catback
3. Suspension: Strano FSB
4. Alignment: -1.0 front camber, oem rear setting, zero toe all around
5. Tires: Yokohama advan A046 (oem evo tires)


plans... maybe cusco or pde camber plates, maybe a 22-24mm rsb, and maybe a catted DP - we will see what actually gets done.
