you track a lot right. I signed up for a TNiA at Pittrace in a couple weeks. Right now im just on as a track tour laps, a few paced laps to get to see it. But They have them each month and if i want to go back in May i want to be prepared. Couple things I'm worried about:
-Oil Pan, stock ej205 style
-tires, probably get some GT Radial SX2's for now
-Brakes, I have stock Legacy GT brakes, 336mm fronts with sliding calipers. pads i dunno, wearever gold ceramic maybe on there now
Fuel cell install almost complete, cage will be painted black and wiring needs to be finished.
Plan was to cut out the spare tire well and drop the fuel cell in but there isn't room. Sway bar would be in the way and after searching other coupe builds with fuel cells you either mount the fuel cell on the trunk or go smaller fuel cell. Should be good though to help balance out my weight in the car.
Added to first page mod list:
Fuel Safe Enduro Fuel Cell ( FIA-FT3 certified, 15 Gallon, powercoated Black)
Radium Engineering Fuel Cell Surge Tank (20-0491-21)
AEM 50-1200 E85 Fuel Pump
Radium Fuel Level Sender (20-0247-09)
Yeah, I'll be getting a firewall and fire suppression soon after. I don't ever plan on doing W2W because I love my car too much... maybe time attack some day but for now I just want to do HPDE events at tracks across the country
NCM Motorsports Park is insane. Took me four sessions to finally get most of the 20+ turns down. At the end of the day it was so hot that my brake pedal was going to the floor a bit faster than usual so I called it a day. Got lucky after my second session and noticed a screw just sitting on my tire.... *whew* (pic below)
I got a new Rammount for the GoPro, I'll have to mount it a little lower next time. Zero fuel issues but did get a bunch of check engine codes that I'm going to try and get fixed.
Hey guys, figured I would post up some pictures of my swap as i'm coming to the turning point where I start putting it all back together again.
I should have been logging everything in order as I went but here is a photo dump to browse through

Always wanted to start a build thread but never had enough time or interesting things to write about. Now looking back I thought that I have something to share, some ideas for this season in local racing series, and it will be good to start a journal just for my own record and as a...

owned this 2.5rs for about 7 years. Rushed to get it after selling my 08 wrx. Did not do a carfax on it, i just bought it with no research.
Later found out it was involved in an accident or 2, was pretty bummed about that. but i finally got a 2.5rs like i've always wanted.
