Love how you drove it to and from the strip with drag radials in the back seat!

Will getting into the 9s require a cage and chute? Congrats btw!!

Well I actually had the drag radials on the car, and the slicks in the backseat.

I'm a ways off from a chute, but I should have a cage per NHRA rules. I only got to do two full passes and then I had to start letting off before the 1/8th or I would have had to leave.

Here are some shots of my car from DCTC from other photographers that were at the event.

I was just there helping out and I did a couple slow laps around with my daughter in the backseat.











Here are a couple shots of me rigging Slomander's GTX35R WRX:





Here's the final shot:

Great photos as always. Is that a tricked-out Honda Fit in there?

Yep! The Fit was pretty well prepped and did quite well against the higher powered (but less modified) cars.

Great final shot! I want a shot like that of my car! I can see the shadow of the stick you used to take this picture but other than that awesome rolling shot! I wish you could take one of my car!

Yes, I tried to get rid of the shadow, but it was over so many of the body lines that it was a pain and I gave up. You might be able to find a photographer that will do a rig shot in your area. I don't know of any off the top of my head though.

Over the weekend I did a few updates to my car:
  • Installed an IAT sensor in my end tank
  • Replaced fuel filter
  • Cleaned the bugs off my FMIC
  • Installed Aluminati solid mounts (motor, trans, pitch stop)



3rd gear pull (~90mph) goes up 2. 4th gear pull (~130mph) goes up 10.







No photo of the transmission mount because it's not coated yet.







Torque Solutions mounts that came out.

How did you like the TS mounts? I've been thinking about getting those. I've also been debating Group N.

I think they're some of the best poly mounts out there. I liked them a lot. The Group N are pretty mild. IMO, not really worth the money. The Torque Solutions ones are quite a bit stiffer.

Wow, man. I really like your build and the quality of your documenting. Thanks for sharing. I'm on the tail end of a three year build that's very similar in some ways, and so I'm very excited for the possibilities. I'll be running a 6466 on a stroked/ sleeved/ and o-ringed 2.6L in my '02. I wish I was as thorough as you with my documentation and photography. Keep it coming, man.

What are you expecting to run with that setup?

Here is their thread on MNSubaru:

I don't think they're set up as vendors on NASIOC yet.

Yesterday NF dropped a new clutch disc in for me. Last time at the track I did around 10 bunouts + launches (on slicks) and then on one of my passes the clutch wouldn't disengage after I got off the line. I got it out of 1st, but it wouldn't go into 2nd. I eventually got the clutch to disengage and got it back in gear but it was really rough whenever releasing the clutch. Especially from a stop in 1st. I drove the car home and after a few more starts it smoothed out mostly.

NF had experienced a similar occurrence with their Speeding Bullet STI a few years ago and suspected the clutch had welded itself and then eventually pulled apart chunks of the disc. Based on this, the decision was made to replace my disc before the Proving Grounds event this weekend. Once the clutch came out, it was confirmed that mine had experienced the exact same thing as the Speeding Bullet. The disc had chunks missing and he pressure plate had parts of the disc embedded into it.

The flywheel was replace with a freshly resurfaced one, the disc was replaced with a new ACT 4 puck solid disc, and the pilot bearing and throw out bearing were also replaced. Also drained fluid and refilled. The chunks were removed from the pressure plate and it was re-installed. It has some obvious hot spots but no major cracking or warping and should be fine to use. I'm hoping this will get me through this season and then I'll probably end up with one of the triple disc clutches next year.

To be perfectly honest, I'm not even completely sure anymore. And I reread my post, I fat-fingered the turbo; it's a GEN2 6266. I'd like to be able to put 700 to the wheels, but she's a very over built street car. Also, the direction of my build has changed several times since I initially pulled the motor some of which is my fault some of which is just how things worked out. I'd like her to be ABLE to do anything I want. She might end up being a daily driven racecar like my Evo, but better.

I had a brake light out for a while and I finally got around to fixing it the other night. Turned out that the bulbs in my round inner portion of my light are the dual filament style. One of the bulbs had one of the filaments burned out. That made it so it would light up when the lights were on, but when the brakes were pressed that same bulb would go out.



Got a new bulb and it's all fixed. The auto parts guy tried to give me a single filament one at first so be on the lookout for that if you don't know what part number you're looking for and ask someone for help. Changed my oil last night and I'm heading to Proving Grounds in Brainerd this weekend.

Good luck this weekend, I'll look forward to reading the results.
What do you suppose is the next weakest link you'll find (i.e. what's going to break next)?
