Mike's 2022 BRZ

Let a new journey begin.

I have no idea what direction I'll eventually take this car, but I'm certain it'll involve some sort of performance driving! Y'all need to crack the whip and regularly tag me here, so I keep the post updated.




???? - Call Irvine Subaru and request that they order me a new BRZ the moment it is available, and leave a standing deposit. I've already purchased many cars from them, and they know I'm committed.

28 Oct, 2021 - Get a message from Irvine Subaru that my BRZ has arrived and is ready for pickup. Unfortunately have to work and won't make it.

29 Oct, 2021, 9PM - Took delivery after hours, courtesy of Asher who stayed late so I could sign for the car. I attempt to connect Ecutek and an AIM Solo DL when I get home to see what data I can get. Neither are able to at this time. 6 miles on the ODO at this time.

30 Oct, 2021, 4AM - Show up at CSG to swap in CP brake pads, Endless brake fluid, and swap the terrible factory lug nuts for some RAYS Lug Nuts. CSG lug nuts have been backordered for a while, so I opted for the next best thing.

30 Oct, 2021, 6AM - hit ACH (Angeles Crest Highway) on the way up to Streets of Willow for 86CUP, to feel the car out.. Car is slightly understeery as expected. I get worried that I'm perhaps cycling the tires a bit much. I also spend some time bedding the brakes, and progressively increase engine load and RPM, to do simulated dyno break-in.

30 Oct, 2022, 8AM - I get to SoWS, dump everything out of the car in a rush, and head on track. The car definitely feels softer than before. It's easily a superior everyday driver compared to the 1st gen car.

2 Nov, 2022 - CSG FLA V2 Prototypes installed, corner balanced, and aligned.

4 Nov, 2022 - Car is being flogged at SpeedVegas, not by me. Brakes validated. Coilover may get another revision.

6 Nov, 2022 - Auto Club Speedway with 86CUP. Easily hit 6th gear, even with a passenger. Very used stock tires able to stay flat in oval without issue.

8 Nov, 2022 - Dropped car off at OEM Audio+

27 Nov, 2022 - STR38 private track day at Buttonwillow. Suspension testing with very, very dead tires.

12 Dec, 2022 - 86CUP Round 12. Mixed drivers. CP pads showing about 4.5mm of wear after ~7 hours (rounded down) of track use.

I made it all of 7 hours stock.

On the way home.... I thought the rearview mirror was atrocious and I need another JDM frameless. I debated taking the one off of my 17 BRZ. Errors were made; I should have pre-emptively ordered.

Less than 12 hours after getting the car, it's at Streets of Willow. 146.5 miles on the clock.

TBD.

I'll probably try all 3 of:

- CSG spec Flex A
- CSG prototype
- JRZ RS1

Designed with the '22 in mind, or bolt on from the 12-20 cars? Either way, super excited to see where this goes!

Are the rear tow points the same distance apart? Asking for Slambert twin hitch compatibility.

Wondering if your current CSG Spec Touring 86 Comp Exhaust by MXP fits?
