All speedo videos are computer simulations created in Mexico on private/closed roads.

There's plenty of places in the bay.
It gets to 150 about as fast as a stock STI gets to maybe 80 or so. Haha.

Thanks! I posted the speedo clip from 0-150mph on Facebook and at least half the comments are just people saying it's fake. Haha.

I don't have a lot to say on the DSS CF shaft at this point. No issues, which is good. Hopefully it holds up.

Yeah, all the info on the car is right there. I don't know why people don't get it. I think the video must have gotten shared a few places to people who have never seen the car before.

I never got a copy of the plot from the final 40psi tune on the dyno so I pulled a quick log and plotted it in Virtual Dyno. The actual Dynojet was showing 75X WHP and the Virtual Dyno is a little higher, but temps were cooler when I did the VD log.



Powerband has nothing up to 4,000rpm and then goes from 250WHP to 700WHP between 4k and 5k. Then it is above 700WHP until almost 8k. This is in 4th gear so spool looks much better than the other plot I posted from the dyno (834WHP) because it was in 3rd gear.

Too much grip and that car's going into a low-earth orbit.

I did about a dozen passes on them the day I ran the 9.9 @ 139mph while I was still on the 6266. I put them on the second day of Proving Grounds (after I ran the 9.5 @ 150mph with the 6766), but then a couple of other NF cars broke the output shaft on the transmission so I chickened out and put the Mickey Thompson's back on
(and did two more 9 second passes before the turbo ate the coupler). Hopefully I'll be able to get back out to the track and do a few passes on slicks before the end of the year.

My car has been running the Company 23 EBCS most of the summer (including many 9 and 10 second passes and all of the video clips they used in their video). I do still have a GS MBC sitting on the car for use in a real time crunch, but the Company 23 EBCS works great and allows for better boost control. The MBC is rock solid, but tends to have a little natural taper once boost is cranked up. The EBCS allows the boost curve to look however you want (taper, flat, ramped, etc). And the Company 23 EBCS does it all without any of that annoying wastegate flutter that most setups have.

I went out yesterday and tried making some passes on the Hoosier slicks. Air temps were around 40F. First pass was spinning 1st, 2nd, and then started going sideways in 3rd so I let out. Second pass spun hard through 1st, but I stayed in it and ran a 10.0 @ 148mph.

Lines were extremely long (last weekend before they close for the year) so I ended up having the leave after that. Disappointing that I could improve on my personal best, but I'm happy that I was able to drive the car to the track and back home again without breaking anything.

I took my Slipstream's and Mickey Thompson's off over the weekend. I cleaned them up and they still look like new.





I have the stock WRX wheels and Blizzak's on the car now. I don't think I'll drive it much in the winter, but I might take it out occasionally if it's nice out.











I also picked up some RS 6 spoke wheels a while back and I cleaned them up. They have curb rash but otherwise look pretty good. I am considering selling the Slipstream's and then putting some drag radials onto the RS wheels for next summer.
