Default Notorque and his childhood dream

Name is David, I live in Norfolk Virginia and frequent the other side of the water. I have only had my subaru for a little over a year now. But my heart has always been in Subarus. I never bought one because I wanted to make sure I did it right when I did.

Honest to goodness, this has been my favorite car to have ever owned....and I have owned some quick cars in the past. Built mazdaspeed protege, integra gsr, s2000, rx8, lexus IS300, and currently have a cobra that is sitting collecting dust (its for sale too lol). I remember growing up, watching the WRC with the original 555 subaru, then switching to the pliades cluster on the side.

Goal for this car is to knock out a couple laps at various tracks and also the strip....and the haters

The RS started life as 3 different 2.5rs'. I had a buddy of mine who owns a salvage yard buy three for me at $2500, not bad I thought.

one had a clean bare no wheels chassis (This one I own now), one had an immaculate interior, and the other had 80k miles on the odo....good start in my book.

Before I had even taken deliver of the cars, I had purchase an AIT B-Magic 22b wide body kit, I knew I was going to own this for a while...

and so it begins...


here is a video of it pre swap racing at langley speedway.

the CRX was swapped on dot road racing slicks.

here is the subi at the beginning





how much of the wheel well i had to cut off for the rear over fenders quarter panels




what it looks like after you notch and bend up the inner fender and weld to body






front fenders fitted, no holes predrilled when you get them, and ALOT of trimming.





side molding delete, didnt know so many holes would be left when i peeled it off.





front view unpainted quarters




in the paint booth




after paint, with a fat ass



another after paint, you can see how much the fenders drown the oem rs wheels.




paints dried, test drive...realize that i need boost, which is why im where i am today.






and yes that is a tube frame rear wheel drive civic in back
