That is why I bought the formula vee. I did my first hill climb last year and it didn't sit to well with me thinking about my Evo going over the side. The Vee I can easily repair for cheap, but the Evo = not so cheap to repair.

Here is me trying to learn how to drive a vee. LOL it is so much different than driving the Evo. It sure was nice finally getting to drive it after working on it all winter.

so was i reading this thread correctly and you plan on putting a WRX motor in a older beetle? that might be one of the sickest ideas i have heard in a while, and would love to see that beast running...good luck with that swap and hurry up and finish your 22b build so i can drool over it

Thanks. The beetle is last on the priority list right now. It has been sitting since the 60's, so a couple more years aren't going to hurt it. I do really want to get back on the Impreza, but need the formula in tip top shape due to being my only car to race this year. So hopefully with a few upgrades to the formula I can make it reliable so I can start back on the Impreza.

After a lot of thinking I am going to make the car a 2 door wagon. I am trying to find a rear section of a wagon locally for cheap. My plans are to get started back on the Impreza in the next couple of weeks, so hopefully I can start posting up more progress here soon as long as nothing else gets in the way. (knocks on wood)

HTAutos happens to be the manufacturer of that kit and parts. So EXACTLY that I'd just hit them up. Otherwise I think a lot of other UK places might have stuff but out side of replicas you'll be hunting BIG money from second hand rally parts suppliers.

I have been trying to get to it.


My formula vee is keeping me busy every chance it gets. I promise it has not been forgotten. I have been keeping it cleared off and bringing tools home every weekend to work on it, but then the vee brakes or I have to work around the house.

No excuse, house can wait, the car has been waiting too long. You should dedicate just as much time to the car till it is done as you do your wife.

So what do you do for a living? I am a very reputable bodyman of almost 20 years now and have cut hundreds of cars in half and rebuilt them without any issues. Go find a different thread to post your false info in.

But I do want to point out to whoever is now wondering that my swap was done all by factory seams. By that what I mean is that there was no cutting the car in two and simply welding them back together with butt joints, but using all the factory seams to joint it back together to be just as strong as the factory made it. Then I also am seam welding the car to make it stronger to hold up to my abuse.

Well I bought another open wheeled race car and selling the vee. The very nice thing about the new car is it doesn't need much work. I rebuilt the front end and still need to build a nose cone for it, but mechanically it is good. So I have been cleaning to garage out and trying to make space to work on the Subaru again. Hopefully I can do a little bit tomorrow to it. I still haven't found a wagon rear clip for it and have run out of money so it might stay a coupe unless someone gives me a wagon rear clip. Here is a couple pictures of the new car. It is a 1983 red devil 440.



Now fixed. My first time building suspension. Man what a time consuming job. lol


And my first race with it last weekend at Packwood Washington.

Lol at this rate I'll have widebodied the coupe I picked up last month before you! And I have zero time between 60hr work weeks, school, and a new lady in my life! Then again she can weld! So that's a plus. Practice on the coupe so I can get to the rear on my wagon with something under my belt.

It is going very very slowly. I did get the car all cleaned out and figured out placement of a couple of the roll cage pieces. I have been working very long hours at work and now only have one day off a week, so it is hard to go out in the garage and work without the family complaining.

Tell'em the sooner you finish the sooner you'll have a whole mess of free time and won't have to be "sneaking off" to go work on it.
