2000 RS Coupe
The car is looking great. I'm glad to see it out stretching its legs!
A friend recommended the Jescars stuff. I debated doing a ceramic coat similar to that I applied to my Civic, but I think the coupe might get more exterior maintenance so I wanted something I can easily strip down and correct if needed.i've only heard good things about those jescar products. that is a lot of work you did there. I wish I had the time like back in the day to do detailing. It is hardwork but it looks oh so good.
rebuilding cv boots are yuck. Hopefully they last awhile.
Unfortunately I didn't have time to get different clamps and had to get the car back together, so I ended up using the OEM clamps. They're really similar to how the "metal zip-ties" work. I got pretty good at those when doing the exhaust wrap. So, these are pretty secure, but I don't have 100% confidence in them. Hopefully they hold up!Tidy little oil cooler install, and not too shabby on the weight! Looking good.
I agree on the Subaru CV boot clamps. Did you end up using OEM clamps, or go another route? When I replaced the boots on my coupe, I was able to re-use the original clamps, but it was a pain in the ass without having the special tool.
I saw a guy on a youtube video use a pair of these. For 15 bucks they might be worth a shot...I wish I could find the special tool for the OEM clamps. Would make it a lot easier. Good rip on the track should let you know pretty quick if they're tight!
Yeaaah, I thought about that too. Like you, I prefer hood mounted. The rear is sooo close to the hood anyway I think one mounted to the intercooler might be hard to make. That and I'm too paranoid about messing up the anodizing on it haha.I've seen a couple custom intercooler splitters mount to the intercooler itself, I wonder if that would be easier to build. I prefer them mounted to the hood like yours and stock though.
This track is flat and fast. Luckily Mustang guy is a friend and didn't spoil my lap hahaThat looks like a riot! The point by from the Mustang is the perfect ending to that lap too.
I'm going to make some changes before the event in October. Hopefully we'll see a sub 1:40 then! BTW, talked with Max about camping / pitting together. We should make plans for that.Yooooo that's FLYING!
Get that sub 1:40 time!
Yep, Gingerman isn't the most technical track out there, but it does offer lots of safe run-off. So, I always feel more free to push the car really hard here.Hell yeah! That looks like a fun track. Even if you go off, you're just mowing the lawn for miles.
