I'm inspired. I've been thinking of going full rally with my 13 FR-S. I often travel for my business and now starting to go off-road. It's hard when you are lowered with a track setup. I do manage to get around slowly.

Anyways, I hit some f'ing retread on the highway the other night at 85+ mph. I'm glad I had the two piece front lip with race upgrade from Velox. I think the reinforcement bar actually protected the front cover this time. I lost half of it with the end plate on that side, plus tore off my fender liner, and lost a bezel and side marker.

This might be my opportunity to sell my stock wheel setup, RPF-1 setup, and lowering springs, and put that into a new setup.

I'll post some photos later.

For sure...

I'm trying to figure out all the difference in suspension specs and what do I need minimally to swap. This will be done with an AT.

One day, I'll go back to a track setup. Maybe...

^^ LOL that rules..

I have an FRS I bought in 2015 and turned into a track car.. Been a track car its whole life. However, I've switch to racing motorcycles and haven't driven the car in over a year. I've been trying to sell it with no luck.. So now i'm considering setting i up for rally stuff..

I have Caddy ATS Brembo's so i don't think I can switch to a 15" wheel..

car is gutted, half cage, lots of suspension goodies etc..

Found this old Thread. Time for a resurrection


BRZ does Rallying?


Was in the Charlevoix area to see the annual Rally they have during the last weekend end of October and to my surprise someone was competing in a ’13 BRZ and doing it much better than some other AWD’s He managed 4 th overall!


Here was my Photo catch for that weekend. Enjoy!


Could have been better but I did not know the area to get the best vantage, they only pass once and the safety personnel where quite mobile & took pleasure walking in front just when the cars would pass….


Arrived Friday afternoon, only had time to see them arriving back in the pit area it was quite dark out and had trouble finding where they hid the pit area (for the photog’s out there that night I was lucky I had my 50mm 1.4 at 60s iso 4000)


Thank you all the crazy rally drivers for the show!


That BRZ Team:
Erik Potts - Stroctham, NH
Aaron Crescenti - Glen Gardner, NJ

Same 195's all around. The front wheels have a spacer to clear the tie rod; it's not ideal so I'm looking at a way to get clearance so I can bolt it directly to the hub.

Hey guys, I've got a 1" lift by Subtle Solutions and still on stock wheels/tires.

Car is a mainly a daily driver, with so far only one track day (but plan to do more). Lifted mainly because Montreal streets are awful and I kept scraping at stock height. I don't care for perfect fitment or reducing the wheel gap - it's just not functional to have perfect fitment in Montreal.

Looking for wheel/tire suggestions. So far, I'm deciding between silver RPF-1 +35, TSW Nurburgrings (bronze or gunmetal?) +35, or Konig Dekagrams +40. All in 17x8.

I was thinking about getting 235/40 or 235/45 tires to go with them.

Thoughts?

I’ve spent 40 yrs commuting into Montreal. That place is bad for your wheels, Suspension & your car ownership sanity as a whole! Next step up from there would be a rally…

I avoid it with my BRZ stock drop & wheels (I scrape with my stock GD3)!

Managed to flatten some 15” steelies & warp mags on previous vehicles and sometimes doing unwanted stunts that should have required a pilot’s licence… you don’t always have the option to avoid the craters.
If you to do some track I would advise a second Wheel set just for that with the Tire /Wheel combo you want/need/afford. Bigger wheel & tire size is more weight a disadvantage on a track but nice to look at…

I will let the track rats advise you for best tire size for track use.

If you use your vehicle as a daily there I would recommend the meatiest sidewall if you want to keep your wheels a few years.

Nice action pick at Sanair, Is that place still open it was bad back in the 90’s?
