I guess that's a subconscious thing, haha. It does always seem that if there are any 3G wrx/sti cars out there, they are always hatches. Just had to be different

I take it you'll be in the E30?

Yes they are. I just ordered two Direzza Star Specs to replace the front tires. They'll be mounted Friday, so it ought to be an amusing maiden voyage for them...
cool, yeah I'll be in the e30. WRX is on 330# racecomp springs and bilstein cups and would be extremely uncomfortable on a rallycross course. Plus it doesn't have as much clearance as I would be comfortable with.

And I bought the e30 specifically for this and so I wouldn't be tempted to run the rex

Tires.....should be interesting. You better hope for the Barn Course, since it's usually pretty hard-packed stuff where the Star Specs/SP01's will probably be just as good as anything else. Last time we were on that course I almost changed off the rally tires to put my star specs on the e30 (they're my street tires for that car).....course was as hard as tarmac.

The tires should be fine unless the water truck comes through,
