I didn't get any footage these last races unfortunately sad.gif

For the class i'm in I don't really need that much power. Many of my friends who race out on track with me that own Subaru's have purchased the Rallispec block and have had great luck with them. I thought I would give it a try instead of rebuilding it which I will do if once this one blows up tongue.gif

Hopefully this engine holds another good race season before I sell it. I will be selling my car and be picking up a Mazda Formula Pro by 2015.

What, whaaaat?

...so jealous...

But for the same amount of money you could probably buy a used D Sports Racer and a shit-ton of spare parts (or even two cars), which in the end would be much cheaper to run. Not to mention they are one of the most popular race classes in the US, and one of the fastest.

A carbon monocoque is also much easier to total beyond repair, although generally faster and safer. Basically, any race car with a lot of carbon fiber parts is going to cost a ton of money to race.

Helloooo,
Been over a year since I have updated my thread, I plan to get on here more often and update my racecar thread throughout race season.

A lot has happened to my car since I last posted, I added a full Nasa/FIA approved rollcage, car is completely gutted now except for some cables behind the dash which i plan to take out when I have time, not really a priority right now. FINALLY got rid of the wrx 4pots (got tired of brake issues at the track) and got rebuilt Brembos and i'll be running the Reybestos ST47 brake pads, also I got ride of my 18x8 RPF1's and got 18x9.5 for more grip.

Last year I finished all my Nasa HPDE classes and I became and instructor which is badass, I love driving with rookies and showing them the proper raceline, braking points, proper entering and exiting the turns. Since I finished all my HDPE classes i'm in the competitive class and i'll be doing Time Trial, i'll be in TT3 class where there is a lot of competition.

My first race is the following Saturday (March 28-29) hopefully I can see improvement with my roll cage since it will stiffen up the chassis and the new brake kit should feel alot better than my last set up.

Here's my new race license to be able to run Time trial biggrin.gif

Took the car to Ziptie Dynowerks last week to get the car tuned and ready for the race. They also changed my rear diff and front transmission fluid to fresh Motul fluid.

So much sexy in here now. Love it.

Good to see that you're still at it, my season starts that same weekend and I'm frantically trying to get everything back together for it.

Nasa round 1 was last weekend:

I dropped my car off at the track Friday morning, I had to get my Nasa tech inspection and everything went well. The next day on race day the car didn't feel like i would want it to handle at all, i had a bunch of over steer and my ABS light came on and so I raced both days without ABS which hurt my time by a lot since i'm not used to racing without ABS and i didn't want any flat spots on my slicks. I know what needs to be done to get the car running where I want it to be so I can do much better in April.

Thinking it's also time to sell the Subaru so I can start focusing on Mazda open wheel racing which will be a better chance for me to get to higher levels if the opportunity is given to me, Open wheel racing is also a lot cheaper in the long run. Still not 100% sure, still thinking about it and talking to people so will see what happens before I post it up for sale.

For now i'll continue to fix my car and hopefully do much better in April

Well... I think you got flat spots anyway. tongue.gif

Looks like fun! I had a blast at TMS and can't wait to get back out on track again. This weekend I'm taking a break but the following two weekends have an event each that I might go run at.

Well hello IDWF. Been a while since i have been here. A lot has changed in the last 2 years but i won't be going too much into detail.

Pretty much what happened in 2015 Race season. August arrived and it was Outter loop and on the last session of the day after the car had been feeling great, on a turn called " Witch craft " i decided to take the turn 10mph faster than what i normally take it and something on the rear end gave up and made me over steer 180 and there was nothing i could do about it honestly. So i spun out and i was like f#ck i spun out, but it this time i didn't stop sliding, i kept moving towards the wall at about 80mph and i hit it hard. I sat in the car and made sure not smoke was from flames and i pulled my fire extinguisher still just to be safe. I saw the red flag so i knew everyone was at complete stop and the nearest station. When i got out i was so bummed to see my car destroyed after so many years and hours of working on it late night. The ambulance arrived and took me to the local track clinic and they checked me out and i was okay for the most part.

After leaving the clinic they told me my car was in front the garage i rented out at the track. Oh man, when i saw my car i started to cry no joke. Everyone was trying to cheer me up and i told them this is not over, the first thing i did was write on the car "I'll be back" and i told my friends and family there that the car will be back better than ever and sure enough i am back this year....

If you have any questions please ask smile.gif

Holy shit dude... I knew you stuffed it, but damn. Turn 22-23 at Miller? That photo at the wall is just insane. Nose first and spun the tail in, looks like? Honestly surprised you didn't roll, but then again everyone who saw my similar wreck said the same thing.

You always leave pieces behind when you hit the wall. You crack, you break, part of you falls off, just like the car. The car always comes back better, or you build the next one better. You can do the same for yourself, so long as you let those lost pieces be the ones that were slowing you down. Open up and learn from it and you'll only go faster from here.

I'm not sure exactly what happened with the Mustang but i heard when he came into the pits the wheel came off and hit another car. I just liked how it shows my car and my pit crew laugh2.gif
