Here's a post I made a while back when people questioned the same thing. Stock brakes have plenty of stopping power for a single stop. Of course they're terrible on the road course, but this car isn't meant for that.

Here's an extended cut of my 10.3 @ 139mph pass from Rock Falls last weekend. For anyone concerned that stock brakes aren't enough stopping power check out the video.

It is ~10 seconds from 140-40mph and another ~10 seconds cruising at 40mph before turning to head back. Probably no more than 1/3 to 1/2 braking at any point.

I love the sleeper look, that's how all of my WRX's have been. You get to surprise the hell out of people and never get bothered by the cops.

I've been working on getting this seat mounted. The Kirkey brackets are universal and require drilling of the seat and the bracket/mounts in the car.

Here's a shot of the seat mounted to the Kirkey brackets. This photo is with the height as high as possible while keeping the stock layback angle.



Under this will be a fixed seat base for the GD chassis. Unfortunately with just these brackets it sits several inches lower than stock so I'm still working on some mounts to raise it back up.

Kirkey seats are finally in! It took a lot of measuring, cutting, and drilling to get them how I wanted. Using stock seat belts for now. Steering wheel is borrowed from a friend until I get mine.

I'm only 5'8". I like to sit pretty high and close normally. The stock seat I'm usually several pumps up in height.

How is yours mounted? Fixed bracket and Kirkey lower bracket (like mine but without the spacer)? I feel like that would be good for someone 6' tall or so.

I've got my seat mounted on Buddy Club super low down rails.

Everyone that has been in my car says my seat is too low. I'm 6'1".

The sliding ones? I think mine would be similar without the spacers I added. Mine ended up being near identical to how I had the stock seat. The side and rearview mirrors all line up perfectly to my new seat with no mirror adjustments.

This is at the current power level. None of the things I'm doing at the moment would make it any faster. Could make it a hair slower due to weight...

I found a Youtube channel that took my video and put the speedo portion on top of the external car footage for a list they made. I don't know how to do that, but I thought it looked cool.

^^ I use Premier to do it for my vids. Usually use the remote on GoPros so the clip length is the same/easy to sync up. There are a number of other video programs that will do it. Race Render has some presets for it, plus you can render out gauges/info from data acquisition.

Thanks. I use a variety of different cameras so nothing is synced. I think I might have to bite the bullet and buy Premiere and figure out how to use it. Seems like that would make sense for me to do at some point.

Yeah, it's expensive, I do the Adobe sub, basically everything they make for $50/month. Makes sense if you use more than 2 Adobe programs.

Yeah, I have Lightroom and Photoshop. I might have access to the rest and never installed them. I can't remember now...

What valves are you using?
Also any reason you went with the single spring GSC instead of a dual spring like the SuperTech or Ferrea?

The GSC springs are rated for 9500+ rpm's and up to 11.50mm of lift. I don't plan on revving that high and my cams have 11.50 and 11.00mm of lift. Doesn't seem like I'd need anything else...

I picked up a 5 point harness. Waiting to install until the cage is done.
