Default Get race car or die trying, FIA log booked RSTi Race car build!

After building my first subaru and doing way to much to other subaru's and having an absolutely rust free 98 coupe shell already up on a rotisserie, I've decided that I need to take the next step, which is to go all out on one of these bad chickens and see what I can do. My buddy and I will be building this car 100% by ourselves. This will follow the day by day progress of this car, and hopefully follow it all the way to completion!

Link to my first build thread: Breadandbutter's Subaru adventures

The plans are as follows, with most items being up in the air as to what to get. However we have a vague idea of how we will be spending the money. Purchase a V7 STi engine/V7 STi drive line and all the tools required to build a roll cage and take it from there! I also want a fuel cell, so thats probably going to happen as well.. Without further ado, day 1!

The shell thats being built up


Spent most of the evening with the rear diff and stripping the entire wiring harness out headlights to tail lights.





Had a laugh at this today...

Day 2 was spent slightly less productively, stripped the last remaining bits out of the black car I'll need, and then fought with the rotisserie for a good 3 hours... Finally ended up getting the green car on jack stands and the black shell will go off to her new home this weekend!

Got the black car on the rotisserie and the green car on jack stands tonight, started stripping the sound deadening and doing some prep for painting the interior soon... Going to pick up some dry ice and goo gone, hopefully tomorrow, and really get the interior clean!

Very cool setup and cars around!

Guessing Ferrari or Porsche? Apparently Subaru had someone design them a flat 12 for racing, but it didn't go anywhere.

It is out of a Ferrari! Did subaru develop their flat 12 as a first foray into F1?

Anyway, didnt get around to posting last night, way to many late nights past 2 weeks. Anyway finally most of the sound deadening out, just have to strip the rest of the smaller pieces out and goo gone the left over adhesives... Then I can start prepping for paint! Does anyone know if the v7 sti's axles are male on both ends or female/male like the 02 wrxs, I want to use 5x100 DSS axles for the rear.


Testing the goo gone, works pretty well!

Progress is slow with this sound deadening... After this I get to look forward to sanding, yay. Cant wait to see the interior white though!

They thought it was worth a try in 1988-1990 for F1, didn't work out so well. But to be honest, Subaru didn't actually design it, they had an Italian company do it.
