Hi guys! I am back with another Subie. My old thread can be found here.
The goal of this new car is to get it ready for Auto-X over the winter and then build it over time for the road course as well.
A very good friend of mine whose username on here is Snowbum has owned it for probably the last ten years or more. It is a 2001 2.5RS with 117000 miles. It is painted Porsche Seal Grey 6B5.
The rust on the outside and the dings and scratches here and there aren't the greatest, but inside the car and underneath it is in very good condition.
I need to start recording my weight and what I have done to get there:
Currently weighs 2620 lbs with a 1/2 tank of gas - 1640 front and 980 rear. (even lighter now, will weigh later)
Antigravity 3 lb battery
DSS Carbon Fiber Driveshaft
flat aluminum panel trunk with spare tire tub cut out (wasn't even heavy
SSR type Cs
No sound deadening but has full interior put back in.
No A/C - completely deleted everywhere even in heater core area
No airbags, NRG steering wheel
lightweight crank pulley
ACT lightweight flywheel
Gutted sound deadening from firewall to trunk, interior is pretty much mocked up but bolted down.
Sunroof motor assembly removed and sunroof is bolted in place.
Aluminum GD front control arms
Intake manifold and heads are ported/gasket matched
Reversed intake manifold for less FMIC piping
