Which then lead me to my first RS but being a dumbass teenager trying to show off i totalled it. With a new veiw on racing on the street and dedicating my time racing on the track, i got my wagon.
I think we have all had that phase of street racing escpecially after the Fast and the Furious movies came out. I honestly didnt do any street racing but I let all of my other buddies race and blow there motors up.

Nice to see another wagon BTW. I would love to get one and swap STi everything into one while keeping the exterior completly stock. Ultimate sleeper. Hell, Id'e even keep the steelies on.

Get some swaybars and endlinks, and some RS 6 spokes wrapped in some decent tires, and you'll have a pretty awesome autox car :)

Sounds good. What motor did you decide on? And which way is your stance going? Up or down? Stock height is just too off looking. Gotta go up or down with these things.

Good luck with your build. I've been using my wagon as a DD/track car for about 2 years now. Just a word of advice, some car club track day/HPDE don't allow tinted windows...
