11/11/12 - First performance mod! Nameless Non-offset AxleBack Exhaust (and a can of matte black VHT Flameproof)





I can't explain how much I love this exhaust! I was concerned at first when I learned that the non-offset had a slightly higher pitch than the offset, but I've listened to the offset exhaust on a few local cars in person and it's barely noticeable, at least at idle.

5/13/13 - Started playing around with Plasti-Dip. The stuff is far too addictive.

8/17/13 - Eibach Multi Pro R2 Coilovers (16mm Subaru crash bolts used)

9/8/13 - My first Autocross.

The night before. Making last minute runs to get prepped.






The morning of race day!











By some miracle, I didn't eat any cones on my first time out!



And just for a sense of scale, this is what 13 86's look like getting prepped for AutoX

Before:



During:



After:

Looks good! What kind of alignment specs were you running? I'm about to be on coilovers with the stock wheels as well.

Which coilovers are you going with?

I hate to admit this, but I still haven't gotten an alignment after installing mine. Half is due to laziness and the other half is not having parts. I plan on getting everything I need for camber correction (for the rear mostly) and get it to my local shop in the spring once the roads are clean. I'm shooting for -1.5 to -1.7 all around.

9/29/13 - Second Autocross

First time at Devens AFB. This venue is a totally different beast. It utilizes the runway and taxiways of the old Devens Air Force Base so the speeds were much faster than the small lot at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Definitely gonna have some fun at Devens in 2014!







Once again, photo credit goes to @M-17


Placed 2nd this time!

Nice wheels/tires. I'd go 225 for tires next time though. That's a bit too much tire for 8''.
