sorry but i think this just looks cleaner




It's not something I would do, but it looks decent.


Main reason I went away from white wheels is because of the brake dust. When you run big brakes, aggressive brake pads, and drive like I do, your wheels will be completely filthy every single day. I didn't like having to clean my wheels on a daily basis, so I chose another color. The only colors I think look good on white are bronze and black (gold if you have a Subie), so I went with bronze. Now I can go 4 or 5 days without really noticing the brake dust too bad.

I dunno, I'm debating it now, I don't think I need that much extra power. I pretty much mopped the floor with all of the competition today at our Gymkhana/AutoX event. The only guy who was close to me was 0.2 seconds off, and he was driving this:




Good friend of mine, it's a Lotus Exige with a catalog full of mods. Ohlins suspension, supercharged, Hoosier A6 slicks, titanium exhaust, carbon all over the place, etc, etc. My first time out with my new suspension/tire setup and I beat him, and actually after we did our official timed runs we had fun runs and I figured out how to knock another 2-3 seconds off my lap times. So I think once I get my header and ECU, maybe get some cams, intake, and throttle body and I'll be good on power. If I would have had a proper alignment I could have carried more speed and dropped another 2-3 seconds. Alignment is scheduled for next week. :)


I had a great time today, the car was absolutely amazing with the new suspension setup and Advan AD08 tires. I could get the rear end to step out and move around pretty much whenever and however I wanted it to, it was nice. Took me several runs to get used to it, and I've still got a lot of learning to do, so there's much more room for improvement without changing any more parts.
