Flatbed and part out. That is hilarious.

"Parting it out, sick of calling a flatbed." Was the first thing that came to mind .

Ironically I think this is the first year neither car has ended up on a flatbed !

Default Waterford Hills Track Day

If you were curious where I have been I have a bunch of videos and pictures coming to explain Gridlife , Pebble Beach Concours and more I just have been slacking with editing it all.

But first , Track Day Bro !

Due to being sent to California for work I was far behind on my preparations for this track day and I really hate rushing anything especially a radiator swap the night before the track.

I was able to swap out the radiator , oil cooler thermostat and install a new coolant temp sensor. Its a little tight due to the CSF radiator being way larger than the Koyo so some hose trimming was needed but it all fit and survived the entire track day without failure so that is a win for me.

Filled the car with distilled water , water wetter and 5w50 Redline then drove it out to the track the next morning.

Track day went great , Car felt very good even with my PFC Z Compound Street pads on and had no cooling issues even after 6 hard laps in a row. I tried to overheat it and I could not so it should be even better on a track like Gingerman that is faster with more airflow.

Some things that need fixed are the car needs stiffer springs in the rear as 5k is just too soft and a host of other little things that just annoy me.


I am thinking about selling all my wheels then just sticking to a set of 17x9 wheels for track and street use with a full size spare. I want to drive this chassis over 200,000 miles and also take it to tracks like Road Atlanta and Laguna Seca. So it will be a street car first and track car second. Nothing I do will reduce the cars ability to be driven into work and enjoyed on the road. I still want to be running 1:45s at Gingerman though so we will see how that goes along with a flex fuel system in the future. DCCD gearbox is high up on my list of wants as well.

I also want to make the car more comfortable and quiet as the older I become the more I appreciate cars like a BMW M3 , CTSV and Chevy SS which can be sporty yet still drive comfortable. It will also pay off by making my body able to handle more track abuse as since I have Lyme Disease all my joints feel awful after a few session and I wake up after a track day extremely sore. I think a set of new Recaros should be able to solve a few of those problems.

Basically I am going to be building an S202 / RA-R Wagon which sounds absolutely stupid and insane because it is.

Here are some pictures and video !

Have you tried a daily bicarb o soda dose to help with the inflammation?
It’s an affordable and harmless experiment regardless
Dang those pics are lovely. The livery has really grown on me and it just looks so “right”!

Default S202 Wagon begins

S202 Wagon conversion begins ...

Big projects for the next six months
  • Get Ohlins rebuilt or replace with another high end 1 way shock like MCS / KW
  • Finish interior and bring its quality up to the level of the exterior of the car
  • Hunt down STi Wagon fold down seats
  • Upgrade and replace/modernize the entire sound system while adding a backup camera
  • Acquire all S202 interior / exterior goodies possible
  • Recharge and upgrade AC system
  • Flex fuel system* and fuel system upgrades


Stretch projects if the others actually get finished*
  • Upgrade / Refresh rear LSD
  • DCCD 6mt
  • STi clutch*
  • Balanced flywheel
  • PFC 2 piece rotors*
  • Brake cooling setup*


I just want this to be the best possible all around Wrx wagon possible , It must be comfortable , quiet unless you are on the throttle , able to sleep in the back at the track and also capable of laying down respectable lap times.

Are you going to do a rear section insert for sleeping quarters?

With some rain guards and magnet edged screens, you could have a decent spot!

Probably just an air mattress in the back and a canopy over the back of the car

Default Legacy life

So I have been driving the Wrx for the last week due to the Legacy springing a little hardline leak on the ATF cooler lines. I really really like daily driving my Wrx on the nice days and the LGT on the crappy days like today when its pouring rain.

Wrx is going to become the nicest summer daily driver possible while also being track capable. This means nice sound system , Sound deadening , quieter exhaust and all sorts of little creature comforts. I really would love to add in automatic hvac controls but that is kinda a nightmare wiring wise , maybe in the future.





Fixing the LGT was not that hard , used some JB Weld and let it sit for like 36 hours while also getting screwed so I had to drop the wheel off at discount tire. I also ordered replacement hardlines and will get around to replacing them sometime in the future after I fix the front brake calipers. I have all new front calipers , rotors and pads ready to go on.
