Dumb question... Why WRX rotors? Was it just because of weight? Thank you in advance and you have an awesome build. one of my favorites to follow.

This is an awesome build!

Love the fact you picked it up in Mass, Drove to Maine, then to Florida. I lived in Maine up til a year ago and drove my WRX cross country. Keep having dreams of driving back in my BRZ. Despite the winters which are long as can be and cold as FFFFF, it is the most beautiful and under rated state.

Needless to say, subd

I can see how in a twin it could get very tiring haha. I did it with my car so full of my stuff I couldn't move the driver seat any direction but more forward. Camped at night too, was hunched over like a grandpa by the end.
