Devil Bat Racings GD Stage Rally Build
April 13, 2014 01:05PM
So the time has come to step up to Stage Rally. I will transforming my AutoX/TrackDay/RallyX into a Stage Rally Beast.

This car has been exceptional in AutoX and RallyX. And really exceeding my expectations on Tracks Day events. Everything I have done to this car has been in the hopes of someday Rallying this thing.

Here are a list of mods before the ripdown for fabrication.




Stock Block 155K Seriously!
E85 Fuel for past 3 years!!
Deadbolt 18G Zilla Turbo
Bomba Fuels Rails
Process West Top Mount InterCooler
ID 1000 Injectors
255 Walboro FP
38mm Tial External Wastwgate
Grimmspeed Upipe with Dumptube Ti wrap DEI
Ported headers
Ported intake manifold
Full Turbo Back Exhaust
Group N Mounts and bushing upgrades
Sti Front Control Arms and rear lateral links
05 Sti Gearbox
05 5X114 hub swap (better wheel bearings) compared to 03 WRX
Auto Driveshaft
R180 diff in the rear
Dccd Pro Controller
ISC Coilovers for Tarmac
Stock 05 Struts and Springs for RallyX
Team Dynamic Rally Wheels 15X7
Rota Hoosier A6s for AutoX

4/2 pot setup from 06-07 wrx to fit under 15s

Front brake ducts for air to front rotors forgot name of company.


Car at this point has been ripped to the shell and is out to fabrication at
Thompson Racing Fabrication up in Maple City Mi for cage install.

NASA in Open Heavy to get seat time and feel out the car when it's all complete.

But cage is getting logged for SP in Rally America. I am keeping all of the essential parts to go SP in RA. I am taking baby steps first!

there was a thread on here somewhere on what to use for paint. I chose omni single stage white in the same color as every chevy truck. (makes it really easy to patch with a rattle can every time I add a mount for a handbrake, or co driver footrest or spill brake fluid all over the passenger floor and let it sit for 2 weeks. Also makes it easy to see what your are working on.

Yeah been to that thread too much. I am using a primer epoxy then I am going to use a 2K epoxy over that. A lot of raw metal so the primer exopy is a must.

Yeah I got into the engine bay and the front wheel wells. It litterally took like an hour and a half to remove the underbody liner in wheel well with a knotted wire wheel. Hope to be in the interior some time this week...

Also I am reinforcing all subframing and linkage that is steel. Just cuz.

The oscillating scraper tools work wonders on the tar deadening in the car. I snagged a Harbor freight one for 15$ just to try it out, works awesome for deadening removal, as well as sheetrocking, hardwood floor repair, cutting anything wood or plastic like door cards to fit around a cage. Buy cheap HF scraping attachments, but good quality cutting blades and you will be happy. I use the piss out of the thing.
