    Guys, going to need some luck this weekend down at VIR. It's our first race as a team with the new car. Wanted to thank the good folks here who have helped us get to this point. Especially helping to orchestrate my purchasing the 1994 Legacy Turbo from a fellow member in Texas almost 3 years ago this spring. It has now come full circle and the car is race ready! We will be doing the Friday practice with a sprint race on Saturday against Nissan SERs and Sunday morning a sprint race in the AM. Sunday afternoon we will be competing against Spec Miatas in a 3-hour Enduro Race.

    Details of the car:
    1994 Subaru Legacy Turbo 5MT
    Grahm Goode Turbo Back 3.5" Exhaust
    FHI 4-pot front Calipers
    DBA DB4000 Slotted and treated Rotors Front
    Mountain Vented stock rotors rear
    Hawk Blue Pads Front
    Hawk Black Pads Rear
    Goodridge SS Lines
    ATE Superblue Fluid
    Hella Micro DE HID Projector Fog Lights
    99 2.5RS 16" Rims
    Yokohama A048R Race Tires
    Toyo Proxy RA1s Race Rain Tires
    Faulken Azenis Sports Practice Tires
    GAB Coilover Struts Front and Rear may swap to JIC Coilovers midway through the weekend w/camber plates
    Autopower Rollcage Weld-in
    Tekk 5watt Radios with 1/4wave antenna
    STi Short Throw shifter w/linkage
    Sparco Evo 2000 Seat
    Sparco Removable Steering Wheel

    That's it the rest is fairly stock.

    Adam the driver won the ECHC- H5 Class last year, 1/2 way through the season he had it locked up! He is a long time 2.5RS owner since 1999 and we started Auto-xing and HPDEing together. Great driver. Alex will be our crew chief, and we have a few other support folks as well. I'll be managing and spotting/working the radios from the pits and Timing.

    Anyone in the Danville, VA area that wants to come down and watch drop me an e-mail!

    Bummer, Bob. That's what's nice about the Forester, especially with unpainted bumpers that fix themselves. Mine is fine.

    The Miata, on the other hand...I'm sure I got some scratches when I got it out. Had to rock it, a lot, and this is after it had been stuck for 8 days!

    I let it melt as much as I could, then carved a narrow path, but I had to back out up a slight incline.

    After having lots of clearance, AWD, and snow tires, going to RWD with all seasons 4" off the ground is pretty much the opposite - horrible in these conditions.

    Good luck, mike.

    I'm sorta helping coach my daughter's hoops team, mostly because I want to start my own team with my son later on. She plays Sat. afternoon. They're pretty good, too, haven't lost a game yet. :shades:

    Bummer, Bob. Can the dent be pushed out from the inside of the bumper?

    I don't know. It's kinda hard to get at.

    If you can't pull the dent OUT, maybe push everything else IN? :P

    This would have the added benefit of reducing the silhouette of your car, making it more aerodynamic! LOL

    You've got road racing? We're still ice racing up here, it won't be warm enough for road racing for another two months! :cry:

    Hey Mike,

    Best of Luck to you, Adam, Alex, and the rest of your team. Have a safe trip down there.

    Interesting, I went to check out how 98 Foresters are priced, and the one surprise was how many miles most of them have - most are well over 100k miles, and one is over 200k!

    I guess 92k miles in my case is "low miles".

    Not actively selling until April, probably, as I have to see the 08 Tribeca at the NY Auto Show before I decide what I'm gonna do.

    The Fence is safe, for now.
