DiscoWagon's '08 GRB STI

My car featured on t3h_Clap's Wheel33tist Blog:

DiscoWagon’s Little Track Animal

This is my 8th Subaru. I got into Subarus because all my roommates had WRXs and my highly modded Audi A4 1.8T could not compete, I was sold the first time I drove a WRX. I owe my life to Subaru, my very first Subaru was a '93 Impreza L wagon that I bought for $900 with plans on swapping it. I rolled it on a road rally and came out unscathed. Not only has Subaru saved my life, but has introduced me to the best of friends that I now have. I am so thankful for the friendly Subaru community and all my close friends that I have met because of Subaru.

My previous Subaru was an '08 Legacy GT Spec.B, but when Subaru introduced the $7k off 0% off deal, I couldn't resist. At the time I had my Legacy, I was tracking my MazdaSpeed Miata but decided to buy the STI and condense my cars into one car that does it all. I bought my STI in November 08 and have since tracked it about 10 times. This is a true daily driver and my weekend track toy. It has been to Buttonwillow, Willow Springs, Streets of Willow and Auto Club Speedway. I plan on taking it to Infineon this summer with NASA.

All of the parts on this car have been carefully selected in comparison to the past where I would find just the best deals. I owe a lot to my sponsors, Ferdie at South Coast Subaru who has guided me the whole way through the build of this car and also my tuners both Paul Yim and Paul Leung of YimiSport Tuning in Santa Clarita, CA. They have been nothing but supportive and have encouraged me to be competitive in Time Attack races.

Keep an eye out for my car which will be in an upcoming Subaru brochure!
