I don't use HANS but I do use a Simpson hybrid sport. All I have left to add safety wise is a fire suppression system... I might upgrade my seats to Circuit 2's next year (has more side head protection)
Back from paint and I am super happy how it turned out. They also sanded down areas where I chipped the bars with my harness belts over years. Going to let the paint cure for about 2 weeks then put clear bra over the bars that take abuse haha.
Sent my gauge cluster wiring to iWire so I can use a 2005 USDM STI gauge cluster. I wanted the RPMs in the center, shift beep/light and it will be nice to see if I'm doing over 120 MPH now haha.
Also going to try and hard wire my GoPro 7 Black so I can do a live stream of sessions at Daytona over my phone.
Dash will go back in this week along with the center net and window net... once I get the gauge wiring back from iWire I'm going to start getting everything mechanically checked. (oil change, trans fluid change, rear diff fluid change, brake fluid change, check on wheel bearings, axles, clutch, fly wheel etc)
I've had my 2.5 RS a couple of months now and I've decided to start a build thread, hoping it's going to help me get this thing over the finish line.
This RS is my 4th Subaru
My first was a Catalunya special edition, the car I wish I still had, hence the mid-life crisis build :D
2nd was an...
picked me up another chassis. $600 and it runs, mostly!
Still have the ej20g, gearbox, RobTune and iWire harness, stance coilovers (I had just bought to replace my godspeed crap) and lots of other parts... so here we go again!
From the ashes, she will rise!
past build for...
Bought it as a 2012 Christmas/New Years gift to myself after my old cars transmission decided to **** out the counter shaft in the transmission. It had 186,000 miles and was bone stock. I'm sure the automatic transmission assisted in its easy life.
As of Aug,2016 it has 236k miles on...
The story of this car starts in a galaxy far away and probably not interesting to anyone. It was born in Japan, sold in USA, been to Canada and later shipped to Russia. From there it traveled to Germany to hit the "green hell". It has been through many stages and transitions of identity crisis...
HAPPY THANKSGIVING DAY
ID Vehicle: To simplify repairs/fixes/etc I'd love to know the cars history.
Main focus: handling, functionality, reliability.
End goal, yes the beaten horse "22b" exterior styling.
Technical Research (I'll post all my reading/research material links here)...
