the sti lip kit went on. what a PITA to install... at least the butt dyno feels a bit of downforce at the front end. quality in overall fit and finish, and also the way it installs, i punched myself for buying the replica the first time...

I`ve begun to really focus on the way the car feels, so even before I start doing the more fancy suspension stuff, i`ve identified what bothers me and how i can improve those things. I`ve noticed that the rear end moves around a bit on bumpy pavement and the front end should be sharper. here are my recent purchases to help with the issues.

Rigid Collars from Spoon (made by Prova)




Rear subframe bushings from Revo-tune

Shorai battery kit by KC Machines has been installed with the quick kill switch to further lighten the front end.

front camber/caster plates installed on the car. even with wonky thrown out alignments, you can feel the extra camber/caster doing the work! feels really good. can't wait till i get aligned though photo taken by Nick Hur. #NH512.
