Sold the RPF1 setup. I'm back onto the stock wheels for now.

This car is pretty impressive. To put this car in perspective, I saw a video of a 1000hp Hennessey modified ZL1 run a 10.6 sec. at 135mph. Hellcats run 11s.

Scotty was trolling on this car a while back. I believe Scotty commonly says you can't build a WRX for drag racing.

I think you must have seen their 1000HP Camaro. Those are really heavy and Hennessey cars are kind of overstated anyways.

Scotty thinks everyone who spends money to make their car fast is an idiot. He was trolled into thinking this car has $70k in mods and he really went off the deep end on that one. LOL.

My new street tires arrived today. They are 26x9.5R15 Mickey Thompson ET Street Radials. The new wheels won't be here until next week.

Can anyone confirm the color on these? Gunmetal? Gunmetallic? Are those even two different things? It is really hard to tell colors in photos online. Most photos I see of Gunmetal appear to be a lot lighter and do not have the brown/bronze/copper flake. Most of the time these wheels look pretty dark, but I tried to get a lot of light onto them to really get the flake to stand out in these photos.

Thanks! I have another set coming and they were listed as "Gun Metal" so I'll be able to verify if they're the same or not.

Great build. My favorite on NASIOC to be honest. Can't wait to see your times on slicks. Are your headlights aftermarket? If so who makes them?

Thanks. They are just DEPO headlights from eBay. One of them fogs in the winter. The other one doesn't. When they're not fogging, I think they look great.

The new set of wheels arrived today. They are going to be used with the Mickey Thompson Street Radials. They are 15x7" Rota Slipstreams in Gun Metallic.











Quick shot of them mounted:

Do you know if there is a Treadwear rating on those tires?

Compared to the Hoosiers with identical wheels.

Dear Lord, it says "I came here for one purpose; move." I love it!

Also, my sarcasm needs to take a stroll, so, "Errmahgerd, you bought Rota wheels, imminent failure is imminent, too much power, much explode!"

Yep. Rota's. I forgot the center caps in the photo, but they're install now.

Not gonna lie, I'm pretty jelly of both of those sets.

When do you plan to go to the track? I want to know how fast this car is with proper rubber.

Hopefully soon. Maybe this weekend if everything falls into place. Definitely planning on MAP Proving Grounds June 19-21st.

Drove it to work today. Camera phone shots from in the parking lot. Rubs in the rear. Needs to be rolled more...
