Photoshop of what my car might look like with the RS 6-Spoke wheels.



This is the plan for my street setup next summer. Along with Mickey Thompson's new S/S drag radial.

Running on the stock wheels and snow tires now. Getting cold in MN. Snowed most of the day yesterday, but none of it stuck.

I'm sure you surprise a ton of folks with this car. Overall, kind of a sleeper.

That's a big NF sticker!

Love all the data with speed vs time plots!!

Do you ever follow people trying out a new Porsche, Lamborghini, Audi, GT-R? I'd love to hear the sales person's comment when you pull away on a highway on ramp.

Yeah, with the stock wheels it's pretty stealthy.

Big sticker was for at the track and i haven't taken it off yet.

I've never followed any test drives like that but it sounds funny. Not many factory cars that would even be close to this speed.

I took some rig shots the other day. Unfortunate parking garage lighting because I just don't have time during the day.

I bought a 77"W x 72"T x 24"D heavy duty shelf from Menards yesterday for $100. It can hold 12 of the Home Depot totes plus a few more small things. I also did a little bit of other reorganizing and cleaning in my garage and freed up quite a bit of floor space. Best part about the new shelf is that I no longer have to unstack 5+ totes to get to anything.

I like the wall mount tracks I have. First pic you can see the 16 tires I have but I moved the slicks into my basement for the second pic.

That looks good but my floor space is at such a premium I think I'm stuck mounting them up high. As it is now, I still have to wheel around my tools and other random stuff to be able to fit the engine hoist in front of the car when I pull or install an engine...

Decided to do a cage. Looking forward to getting it in and hopefully being able to do more than 1-2 passes at a time before getting booted.

Kirkey seat arrived today. The cover and brackets are still in transit.











My daughters decided to try it out. Haha.

I got the cover on. Still need mounting brackets before installing anything.















All the white, dandruff-looking stuff is from the shipping foam. I need a lint roller or something...

All this money into the build, and still stock brakes? Yikes.

Yep, no need to waste money on something that isn't needed. The stock WRX brakes will fit with some 15" wheels so that's an added benefit for drag.



The only other setup I would consider is the Willwood drag brakes, but they have waaay less heat capacity and are not really recommended for the street.
