Found a couple pics on my phone... nothing exciting just trackspec install and fixing the EDFC wiring after the alignment shop screwed it up by not disconnecting it before adjusting the dampers (right height). I did inform them of the wiring and need to disconnect and cut the zip ties securing the wiring.. sigh.

Also stopped by the trailer to grab the ruckus battery to charge it up and took another pic of the car to prove it hasn't been stolen out of the trailer yet! Plus a random beer pic from the track.

haha California is a bit of a commute for that.

If you have a cut off wheel it's pretty easy though.

Ok so some updates on this shitbox..

First.. the throwout bearing now makes noise. It didn't when parked a few months back. It does now. Awesome.

Also, the trailer is either leaking or the wood floor is soaking up water so I need to remove all the cabinets and refloor the front. That is going to suck ass but will be a good winter project because there's no way in hell I'm doing it until Jan or so when it's a nice cool 70-75 degrees out.

Anyways picked up a 9 Lives Racing wing awhile ago (69" body width, mega end plates) but didn't want to tune the car around it without front aero. I was waiting for their sturdy bois splitter but got bored so I ordered the Verus splitter, canards and splitter end plates. Went to install everything today to find out that I was missing quite a bit of hardware items for the splitter (like 7 bolts and 9 nuts) so I did install the canards (no pic) and the wang.

The wang presented some complications in that we had a perfectly good red wingless trunk lid to use instead of my trunklid with whatever scion accessory spoiler it had on it.. but.. well changing the lock cylinder is a little annoying, then I have two bottle openers riveted to the license plate area, plus some stickers including the uber limited Shiba Racing sticker from @ichitaka05 - that sealed the deal so we installed it on my original trunk lid.. and let me just say.. I think we integrated it quite nicely lol (it was ugly without integration due to holes and crap).

Burnouts on the trunk!


1 piece rear spoiler converted into a 3 piece.. "precision" cut.. aka "gudznuf"



And a pic in the style of the classic **** pic to make it look bigger than it is..


Going out of town for a bit but sent Verus an email about the hardware.. hopefully it'll be here when I get back so I can finish the front aero.

Also for that throwout bearing.. it's been in the car for 2 weekends I think.. brand new OEM Subaru with brake new fork springs, pivot ball, etc. Lubricated correctly with the correct lube. Car lost clutch like it did before at the end of the last event so assumed it just needed to be bleed again but now I suspect something else. Time for a new input shaft maybe plus a twin disk setup or something else more expensive cause I'm sick of touching it.

Thanks to @Opie for help tonight.

it's been awhile..

lightweight battery was installed with the most overkill mount...


Some pics with the front aero:



The ACT clutch and/or throwout bearing completely failed back in November. I haven't touched the car since due to other cars/priorities. I'll fix it over the summer so that it's ready for the winter track season down here in the south. Until then I'm tracking the champcar instead.

Oh also here’s it’s fastest laptop at Sebring with the Tein SRC coilovers:
