Having a great season so far. Last month at the two Okemo races we went 2nd in class/3rd overall and 1st in class/2nd overall.
This pic is from this past weekend at Burke, 1st in class/4th overall with a new personal best 2:07.39, missed the Bronze by 0.19 seconds.



Not my smoothest run ever but it got the job done!
I took out the old re-valved struts and am now using a set of Feal 460 coil overs, the extra inch of bump travel seems to be the nuts combined with the rear subframe lock down kit and Unabombers sexy rear end.

Sounds awesome.  How much of a springrate difference is there between the Feal's and your old setup?

Im not sure which rate Swifts Odi wound up choosing to put in. Spoke with him for a while about what I was doing and how the revalved struts were working and how I was concerned about the 8k's they usually put in being too stiff so they are softer than most. What's amazing is the dampening characteristics and the additional confidence they inspire! Car corners waay flatter then it ever has. The biggest difference is when the suspension got light it used to come down and there would be some additional bouncy bounce before it settled, now when it gets light it comes back down and stays there, no additional movement. They suck everything up with no drama. Places where the car used to get unsettled just doesn't happen anymore. They are dual piston non adjustable with remote reservoirs mounted on the shock housing not inside the car, way beefier, top nuts and threaded  piston shafts are 2mm larger. I can no longer use the stock BBS's due to not enough offset, the tires touch the spring before the wheel is flush with the rotor hat. You are welcome to go for a spin and check 'em out.

That sounds like an excellent setup.  It even seems, dare I say....Streetable?  I replaced the coils on my wagon 2 years ago and noticed similar things with regards to how the car settles over bumps. My newer set up feels like there might be slightly more body roll, but the car is less twitchy.  Of course, I haven't autocrossed or tracked the damn thing in 2 years.  :buck2:

Totally streetable, except for the 4 gallons per mile race gas it gulps. People with track set-ups that try a climb usually do 1, maybe 2 runs before they go home with no fillings or cut tires.
What newer set-up is on 'Zilla?

"ST Suspensions" Coilover kit for 02-07 WRX's, with MSI front camber plates and Group N rear strut mounts.  Height adjustable, fixed damping.  ST is made and owned by KW, they're just painted differently and missing some of the outer component's proprietary coatings.  It feels like they just work really well with the equipment on the car.

This is the "Kit", but I just got the base coilover set, due to haveing all the mounting hardware already.  Ended up being cheaper than even the Megan/BC coilovers.

Sweet package, and an even sweeter deal! Yea the KW's are real big with the climbers in Switzerland, Czech Republic, Jordan etc...
I have heard that most like the ST's over the BC's.  We have a couple guys on ST 4100's and everyone I've spoke with whom have had BC's got rid of them.

I had the Megans on my Baja.  10kF and 8kR.  I had to put harnesses in my street car to stop my head from hitting the ceiling. :roll:  On an unrelated note, for some reason, the 'cheap' BC's and Megans cost the same or more for the GC/GM/GF chassis cars as the better brands baser models.  Limited market, maybe?  Guess nobody told them GC impreza stuff fits 89-94 legacies and GD impreza stuff fits 95-99 legaices/outbacks.  :angel:

10K/8K is brutal. I wanna say mine are probably 7K/5K. Ha, I completely forgot GD stuff fits 95-99 Leggy and OB's, that's good to know for when I sell some shit.
Found another pic from a check point worker on FB. The right hander above shows how much they compress and this one of course shows the opposite.

Cool pic.  Looks like a good amount of travel without big-time lean and slop.

So the 2016 season has come to an end. Wound up just edging out my closest competitor in SP1 for the class win, won the Killington Sports Car Club points race and came in 3rd overall in points for 'King of the Hill'. I'd say it was a successful season. This photo and video are from this past weekend at Mt. Philo, our shortest course of the year at 1.1 miles, 1st in class, 3rd overall. Now to spend the winter prepping for next years Climb to the Clouds. Thanks for looking!

Thanks fellas!
Dave: The car is in VT as we speak getting a new cage. The cage I have is fine safety wise, just not legal for Mount Washington or a Rally. I am missing roof bars and a few essential gussets. Instead of cutting the roof off to make repairs we decided to re-do it completely as some of the welds look more like someone smeared bubble gum in the joints than dropped dimes. He is going to go through the fire wall this time and tie in to the strut top area. He is also going to add the swiss cheese wind shield/a-pillar gussets as well as some monster gussets tying in the vertical sides of the main hoop to the door jamb area. Front and rear bumper beams are being replaced with much lighter and much stronger DOM. Also needed for Mt Wash is a window net, balaclava, 5lbs of fire bottle instead of 2.5lbs and nomex long undies because I cheaped out on my 1 layer suit and you need at least 2 layers.
I'm also in need of an oil cooler. I'm good on the 1-3 mile hills but the race we have that is 4 miles my oil gets awfully toasty by the time I cross the line so 7.6 miles at Wash. would probably due some serious damage.
Tires, always need tires.
I switched to CL RC5+ brake pads this season and I am loathing them. Loud as hell and not enough initial bite... gotta do something about that.
We should get the final details on Mt. Wash this month but most likely all turbo cars will require a 40mm restrictor like in 2011 and 2014 so I gotta find a machine shop to take care of that too, and get re-tuned. A whole bunch less power should be fun, lol, and combine that with a 1600 ft starting line, 6288 ft finish line and she'll feel like an N/A. haha
I made a pact with my closest in class competitor and we're going to leave our restrictors in all next season. This is fine because mt wash is going to cost as much as about 4-5 regular hillclimbs so I wont make all the regular Neha events next season anyways. I got plans for the 2018 season though, like 500 plans, hence the new scaffolding!

I love the swiss cheese a-pillars.  Because race car.

Eventually I'll have my wagon all finished up.  Not sure I'd be willing to hill-climb (love the format but can't swallow the risk).  Since it's a summer DD first, I do hesitate to run oil cooling...I take a lot of short trips and want to make sure it still reaches temp.  Not something to worry about yet anyway, since I've still got to do the whole engine transplant first.

Great job this season.  Mt Washington would be great.  I'm sure Adam could make the restrictor. Let me know what I can do to help.

Dave, you've done a bunch of auto-x so you'd be just fine, its not that risky if you go 9/10's, people say 9/10's isn't racing but it is, especially when it takes a couple seasons to really memorize the hills to be able to go 10/10's.
Thanks Fred, and Thank You for all that you have done, once Joey is finished I'm going to haul it back here and do what I can, but its inevitable that your phone will be ringing before spring : )

The 2017 Mount Washington Climb to the Clouds registration opened today if anyone is interested. Acceptance emails will not be sent out till mid February. The entry fee is a hefty one so if you sign up you will not be charged until/unless you are accepted. Spectators and volunteers are always welcome. Come check out the oldest motorsports racing event in the country. Hosted by Subaru of America. Higgins, Pastrana and most of the VSC crew will be there attempting a new record.

Info Here: http://www.mtwashingtonautoroad.com/events/climb-to-the-clouds

and here: http://www.sccnh.org/CTTC/2017/2017-Subaru_Mt_Washington_Hillclimb-Vehicle_Rules.pdf

Sign-up here: http://www.motorsportreg.com/events/2017-subaru-mt-washington-hillclimb-auto-road-sports-car-club-of-new-hampshire-183327

Now to figure out which damn class to run??? Unlimited, Open or P1...?
No restrictor in Unlimited, so a better overall finish would be in order but I'll get my ass kicked in class by the likes of Higgins and his 600-800 at the wheels.
Open Or P1, restricted, so shit placement overall but could do well in class..... hmmm!
