Raven FRS: Heartbreaker

So I FINALLY caved and got rid of my '12 WRX. I had no intention of getting rid of it, especially since I just got it tuned last month and it was an absolute beast on the road. The perfect everyday all around car in my opinion.

My wife and I had talked about me getting something else to play around with and while I mentioned a few times waiting to see what happened with the BRZ STI, I also said that a black FR-S would be sick. So while I was gone in the field for training, she picked one up for me and traded in the WRX after a long dicussion over deciding what to do.

So here it is: When I first bought it.

First Purchased: APRIL 2013



AUGUST 2013



DECEMBER 2013



DECEMBER 2014



CURRENT: FEBRUARY 2015

Thanks!
Those were SSR SP1s. I would get them again but I don't wanna spend $700/wheel with sizes and offsets that $300 wheels offer. Maybe if the car could properly fit a +12 on a 9.5j wheel or something.

Oh well, we'll see. I have yet to make a final decision on wheels yet. All I know is I'm buying 6. 4 17x9s and 2 18x9.5s.

^Thanks


Got to work today. Had some left over DEI gold wrap and covered up the BMC. Adds a nice touch to the bay I think.




Also stripped everything out of the trunk. After weighing everything, it came in at around 54lbs. The new exhaust setup will shave another 22-25lbs as well. Which means nearly 100lbs taken off of the rear half of the car.


STANCE coilovers purchased yesterday and will be here Thursday and installed this weekend. Alignment shortly after. Everything else will be purchased next week and I'll spend the remaining time making sure everything is set for the event at Mineral Wells on the 19th.

Should have loads of pics and footage of the 4th gear 80-100mph entries

Finally have some time to update for everything that's happened over the past week or so.

Got Stance Coilovers


Threw them on and dropped it about 2" while I waited for the wheels and tires to show up.


Got my bubble knob and turn spin knob(turn spin knob not installed in this pic)


Tires and wheels showed up



Tires are Achilles ATR Sport 215/45r17
Wheels are XXR 527 17x8.25 +25
Lugs are Red Muteki Closed End

Got them mounted


Then made final adjustments by adding a slight bit more camber up front and dropping it overall another 1/2" to end up like this.


The fronts sit perfect for me but I would like to add a 3-5mm spacer in the rear to make it perfect how I want it. We'll see though.

All I'm waiting on now is the Exhaust (Nameless 2.5" track pipe) and the car will be ready for the Mineral Wells Event on the 19th

I'll post up more pictures when the exhaust shows up and a bunch more during the event.

Do the wheels fit flush or stick out a little? I'm getting ready for wheels and tires and need to know what offset to go with.

Front wheels poke Almost a full inch. I added more camber though up front. I'm running around 2 degrees up front and it now it pokes maybe 1/4".

The rears are running about 2 degrees camber as well and they're dead on flush. I want a small spacer though to get that same 1/4" of poke so it looks flush from all angles. It looks sunk in at some angles lol
