Long time no post, I’m coming back with more info here in the coming weeks. If there are any topics or featured cars you’d like me to cover comment or shoot us a message.
One of the most common questions I see online is, “Will xx RPF1 clear my brembos?” Time to compile some data so it’s easy to find.
Here is a comprehensive break down of the Enkei RPF1 Brembo clearance for the STI brembos with their spacer sizes where necessary.

We hinted at this potentially happening a while back. Our close friends at Penguin Garage have started stocking the Clap Consulting spec Enkei RPF1 Spacers. These top of the line spacers are made by Motorsport-Tech.
The team at Motorsport-Tech has been making these spacers for many of our Consulting Clients. Since Motorsport-Tech is 100% custom made to order there can be a delay, Penguin Garage is removing that delay. Penguin Garage currently has 9 pairs unclaimed ready to ship.
The Clap Consulting spec Enkei RPF1 spacers are dual drilled 5mm spacers with a 56.1 hub bore and 73mm wheel bore. They are hub and wheel centric to the Subaru Impreza and the Enkei RPF1s.
These will work on any Subaru 5×100 or 5×114.3 looking to clear brembos with any of the flat/concave face RPF1s.

Adam has once again stepped up to the plate and blasted it out of the park. The first things that caught my eye on these photos were the Enkei RPF1s. I may be a little biased towards the Enkei RPF1, but the SBC color is a perfect match for Aspen White without question. Your eyes aren’t playing tricks on you, Adam is rocking the huge Karlton fender flares, a huge front splitter, and a massive Kognition wing. Adam opt’d for all that extra grip and downforce to help him get an edge in the Limited GT AWD class for the upcoming Global Time Attack at Willow Springs this weekend (5/20/2011).

Last month I was at Sebring International Raceway with Chin Motorsports. The car was ready, I was as ready as I was going to be so my fiancÃ©e and I headed down to Sebring Friday night after work. Bright and early on Saturday morning I head over to tech/registration and begin prepping my car (ie. remove all the stuff I thought I might need). After the driver’s meeting and class session my instructor and I hit the track for the first session.

For the last 3.5 years people have been curious if the 9.5″ RPF1s cleared the Subaru Impreza WRX STi brembos. Well, they don’t. They require a spacer, how large of a spacer?
Up until last week I couldn’t say with confidence what size they needed to clear. Luckily for me a fellow Subaru owner on the forums with a crazy Wide Body STi happens to have a few Enkei connections. Earl managed to test fit one of the 17×9.5 +38mm RPF1s for Brembo Clearance.
He had a couple spacers laying around so he decided to test it and snap a few pictures to finally put the question to rest, “How big of a spacer do I need to run 17×9.5 +38mm RPF1s?!”

Ever wanted to see 18x10s on a stock body Subaru Impreza WRX STi?
18×10 RPF1s are freaking amazing. The guys over at TopSpeed managed to wedge a set of them along with some 285 tires under the fenders of their red 2008 Subaru Impreza WRX STi.
