  1. 2018 Supp Regs

    Hmmm... might have another purpose for my WRX.
  2. Event #4 at Gimli

    Damn, I was hoping to get out to Gimli this past weekend, since I haven't been to another event since the first one of the year. Though, I'm horrible at pivot turns...
  3. Ha, I would actually be in the area that weekend. But I'm sure my cousin won't be too happy if I skipped out on his wedding for autocross... lol.
  4. 2017 Season-Changes

    I have the complete opposite issue, it's the front fenders that are rubbing... haha. I may need to roll it some more before the first event. I also thought about getting some fender flares and solving my issue that way. Eventually the Subie will be stripped and turned into a full track car. So at some point I may take a sawzall to it.
  5. 2017 Season-Changes

    I don't remember what my offset is but the tires are 255. Last year when I took a few laps around Gimli on my then 245 RE-11s, it was rubbing. Won't be an issue once I get my coilovers on, but the stockish suspension has a bit of a roll.
  6. 2017 Season-Changes

    Hmm.. I may have to do the same. I also think I need to roll my fenders more. Not entirely confident that my tires won't rub... Haha.
  7. Got my tires yesterday. The FedEx guy thought they were motorcycle tires... Haha
  8. 2017 Season-Changes

    Here's my laundry list of changes. Since it'll be my first year back in forever, I'll be happy if I finish in the top half of the raw times... haha. Nitto NT05 255/40r17 Stoptech brake pads (eventually) re-built RCE Tarmac T2 coilovers lightweight battery of some kind
  9. Membership #1700 I'll take #5
  10. Looks like I'll be running some Nitto NT05s this year. My first time using Nittos, so it should be interesting.
  11. Well, Quattro Tires called me and they won't have Bridgestone tires in my size for 8 weeks. Back to square one.
  12. I just bought from quattrotires also. Bridgestone RE-71R in 255/40/17 size.
  13. FS 255/40/17 Rivals SOLD!

    Just sent you a pm about the tires.
  14. Hmm... I guess I'll start the year running on 6 year old RE-11s... haha.
  15. I'm glad to help out. I get the easy and warm job of sitting in my car... haha.
  16. So I completely forgot to post the official results of the Rubber Championship.

  21. What's everyone using for brake pads nowadays? I've had Hawks in the past and they seemed to work well for the WRX. I was also looking at the Ferodo DS2500s. Will need to handle time attack at Gimli and also AutoX.
  22. Brake Pads

    I didn't mind the HP+ on the WRX for AutoX and Gimli. But I tend to take care of brakes pretty good. I may start with them and change mid season.
  23. Brake Pads

    Thanks for all the input guys. I'll most likely be changing pads from street pads to track pads the day before an event. Maybe I'll remove my fog lights and use them as brake cooling ducts.
  24. 2017 Season-Changes

    I'll be back this year from a long absence in the Subie. Trying to decide on a tire that I can do time attack with and also autocross. Will be getting new brake pads (undecided on make), rebuild the Tarmac T2 coilovers, and general maintenance. We will see how badly I suck at autox from being away for so long. If I can be in the top half of the time sheets, I'll be happy... haha.
