Kinda off-topic but is it necessary to get the car tuned with all of the GS pnp bits? I have all of them about to be bolted on to my car and just wanted to know if it would be safe on stock tune...

How have the OBX trailing arms held up for you? Some changes to the SCCA AX rules may make them legal for me this year.

Are you still using the aluminum sheets as wheel well covers? Also what were you planning on do to force air to the brakes?

I was also looking for the brake lines that you can bend with your hands and I could not find them, what were they called, do you remember the brand name?

I am planning this build for my '95 Legacy Wagon and needed some help

Also I am pm'ing you about the sponsors you got for your build too

Thanks

We got so busy expanding last year we didn't have much time or space to move forward with this project. We'll be in our new shop here in a matter of days and hopefully as soon as we get settled down we get can this thing finished and on the track.

Is the hydraulic K sport handbrake holding up? Does it bleed down if left on for parking brake?

The handle itself is great, but the little cross retainer piece is bent to hell, too much pressure on a light weight metal.

Crash beam is gone because it is not a street car anymore, saves a lot of weight at the track.

So I was wondering what kind of modifications had to be down to the gas tank to remove the charcoal filter because I am having a hard time mount it on my project and figured if you guys did it I can just scrap it too
