Pretty sure it was totalled because of the blown airbag & seatbelts and the floorpan, fuel & brakeline damage.

Amazing rebuild thread!!! 8500 all in sounds like a steal!! Enjoy the BRZ at the track!!!

Got the windows tinted yesterday to block out some of that Florida sun and then spent last night getting some track goodies installed!
Racecomp Engineering Tarmac II Coilovers, Invidia Q300 Catback Exhaust and my track #'s on the windows!






Going to swap out the tranny & rear diff fluids to Motul Gear 300v today and raise the rear end up about 1/2"

Coming along nicely. You may find you want a lot more front camber.

That's the max negative camber I could get using stock top hats, setting this car up almost exactly like the Chin BRZ that Randy Pobst raved about. I can always add more with camber plates if I need to.

Great weekend at Sebring! The car performed brilliantly even though I didn't. Made a minor mistake resulting in an off-course meeting with a tire barrier. Luckily only minor damage and no injuries...but now some of the stuff I just fixed needs some work again. After the "off", I was able to finish the remaining sessions.
