Here's the start to our newest rally build.





Taking all the good stuff from the old car and putting it in a coupe.

Cage is done.







Putting it back together for a season of rallyx and maybe a few single day events later in the year IF I get the suspension sorted out.

After a taking a trip to 100AW my wife says I can't be off the stages for more than a year so it's time to get on it. Olympus entry is paid and licenses are up to date. Got my logbook on Sunday but bent a shift fork on the way back.





Time to drop the trans and see if we can get it fixed in time for the sprint at DirtFish on Sunday so we can get at least one shakedown done before Olympus.

Looking good! I've got some stuff going out to you today.
I love two doors. Harder to cage, poor access to rear top mounts. Better looking, easier to get in and out.

Thanks Grant.

The rear side windows are lexan and removable so we can get better access to the mounts. I also cut out the rear speaker tray to help with that issue as well.

We did the parcel traycut out also. It's really not that bad. Lexan on dzus make it a non issue. You can just make climbing in trunk to get back there a wife job. :-)

Prep for Olympus in nearly complete. No paint until next season at least.



Pod lights ready for Wildcat Pass.



Stock ECU has been cracked for 2000-2004 Subarus using the EJ251. Working on some last minute tuning. Taking her out for some testing tonight.
