The PS system went back together with relatively no problems after the last update. I moved up to college the day after I put it together and everything went alright.

But today, four days before my track day at NYST, I walk up to the back of the RS to find a puddle of gasoline under the rear passenger side. Fuel filler neck decided to rust through. Great. I ordered the new neck before noon, so the dealer said there is a chance it could come in tomorrow morning instead of Thursday morning. Cutting it real close here.

I'd also like to get the car re-aligned because it was set to factory specs the last time, but that seems like a pipe dream at this point. We shall see.

Thank you! I do what I can to keep her alive. You were close, but its the other big one, the King's Park Psych Center. Pilgrim State, the one in CI, doesn't let you take pictures of the big building anymore unfortunately.

Its been a pretty uneventful month.

I got the fuel filler neck installed in a few hours and was good to go for the track day. The first two sessions of the track day were in the rain, so that was a new experience but it turned out fine. I did experience coolant temp nearly pegging even after my cool down laps on my last two sesions. Coolant boiled over the first time it happened. Head gaskets seem to be fine, but I'm not really sure what caused the issue. The water pump and tstat were replaced a year ago and I'm pretty sure the rad was replaced when the bodywork was done. I haven't experienced any sort of issues with this since the track day so I'm not too worried about it at the moment. Also developed and exhaust leak after but have been to lazy to figure out where its coming from.

Yesterday, I went to a big parts sale in Jersey. Missed most of the good stuff but was happy to grab another 3.9 R160 to put my suretrac in. Only problem being that there are two types of R160 and the one I got is the wrong one. A waste of a Saturday.

I've decided to sell my Ground Control camber plates beacause they're for a GD. Still looking for something to give me more caster and maybe a little more suspension travel. Other than that I'm pretty happy with the car, though I could always go for a little more power.

Hadn't put up a photo since I put the new wheels on. Also, shoutout to the Impreza, it turns 25 today.

I was dreading this day but figured it would come eventually. Just got rear-ended by a Wrangler. It was fairly low speed and there doesn't look to be any major damage, but still, I could've done without it. I'll have pictures once I get home. I'm fine too.

Updated the previous post with the only pictures I took.

I'll need a new trunk, taillights, and rear bumper at the least. Quarter has a slight crease above the drivers side taillight and the trunk is jammed forward as well as being stuck shut. The damage in all reality isn't that bad but it could've been prevented if he wasn't looking at the radio instead of the road. Oh well I guess, time to start looking for parts.

hopefully his insurance will cut you a check to cover some costs? maybe get you some upgrades versus buying stock?
