Cold weather in MN convinced me to put my winter setup (stock wheels with Blizzak's) back onto my 2.5 RS.

It's pretty close to freezing in MN lately. Lows are in the 30's. Car can spin the snow tires a bit, but not too bad. From certain angles it does look a lot like a stock 2.5RS

It was easier to throw on, especially since I have a lot of the stock location exhaust parts on loan, so cost was much lower. I also wanted to be competitive in the Proving Grounds SA (stock appearing) class.

There wasn't much of anything running below mid 11's so I should have had a very good shot at both PG events, but I never actually got to do any head to head racing due to axles breaking.

I also have a welded rear diff that I should be throwing on tonight or this weekend. I haven't ordered any axles yet, but that will be coming up at some point too. Not sure on the timing of all this yet.

Just curious if you could notice any difference in straight line performance/acceleration going from the '12 wrx wheels to BBS? Any difference in feel going from the 235/45r17 to your winter set up shorter wheels?

The 11 WRX wheels to 04 STI BBS saved weight but the tire was the same. It felt very much the same to me but possibly a hair quicker. I did some other weight savings at the same time thoug .

The snow tires are 205/60R16 so they are actually taller. They're also narrower and way softer. The setup should be a couple pounds lighter per corner according to my online research.

They are very squishy and walk all over when I get on it. They also break loose way more easily . I did do a 50-100 run and it showed being faster but that could have to do with the colder weather making more power.

Fuel: E85

10.98s @ 127.9mph with 1.74s 60' (snow tires)



I ran 10.99 in this car at BIR last month, but I decided to take it out again yesterday. The changes since the last passes were: addition of KillerB header setup, changed to COBB AP, swapped in a welded rear diff, put the RS flat hood back on, and put on the stock wheels with winter tires (daily driven street car and it's been getting below freezing at night).

I did a few shakedown passes with no launch just to see what it would trap. It was right around 128mph. Up from 126mph the last time, so I decided to give it a go. Ran 10.98 at 127.9 and 11.18 at 128.0 and then got the boot. 60' times were in the 1.7s range. Not as good as the 1.6's I was getting on the summer tires, but not terrible. Snow tires were a lot less stable down the track too.
Here's a video of an 11.1 and 10.9 sec pass:
