Charlie bit me...

So I finally go her to help me properly bleed the slave cylinder after I removed it to raise it up.

Also lowered the rear a bit more to level it out. I will try to get the weight spread to the rear a bit.

Nice car man. Cover Those Coil Overs if you plan to see winter in this car. I had a beast of a time adjusting mine after 1 winter here in the mitten.

So I had mucho problemas trying to connect my Win 7 laptop and an XP virtual machine to the hydra. I had both versions of the software on both OS. Even though the guy who sold it to me said the Hydra was v2.6, I got a message that it was not the correct version software for the ECU firmware. I decided to connect with 2.7 and it told me it was 2.7 but a newer version of 2.7. I got connected BRIEFLY one time, and then nothing for the rest of the night. The short time I was connected it looked a little garbled and said the maps were private (locked) and the owner swears there was no password or lock on them. I suspect a bum USB to RS232 cable and will try a new one tonight.

You said it! Also, I am buying an ACT heavy duty clutch and lightweight flywheel and 1000cc DW injectors. I kind of need to be able to tune for those injectors....Damn USB cables.

I was able to find a Hydra Nemesis version 2.5 install and that worked. Apparently that was the issue.... I tried 2.6 and 2.7 but NOOOOO it was even older. Oh well.

I hate overthinking things.

I got the SB9-HDSS which is good for 430 torques. I wanted one that wouldn't shatter my gears like the pucked clutch would have even though I have RA wider teeth. I also risked it with the lightweight flywheel. The strut there is yet another one for the forester since I keep bending them with shenanigans. I already replaced both rears a few months ago.



Old disk was within the proper usable thickness, not sure why it slipped. Do I make too much power?? Evo 3 16G at 15 PSI...



I kinda half-dropped the trans and left the driveshaft in since it's new fluid in there. SUPER FRIGGIN EASY!



The new OG hotness, 725 lb-ft of awesome:




I drove barely a few miles since snow hit in MN and already the coilovers are getting nasty. :(

I will have to think something up, I've kind of always wanted to do that :)

Added to the list :( I need a turbo blankie first and new rad hoses.

AND STILL HAVE TO DO THE RUST REPAIR!!!

So my car is a turbo'd RS. Do I need to have a coolant expansion tank on it??? Like what the WRX/STIs have always had? I'm more than happy without one and temps have been fine but it hasn't seen track time yet.

nice to see someone in the cities actually doing something with a gc for once. I remember this car from the firestone days of yore.
