I was selected to compete in the 2019 #SuperStreet Show Car Shootout sponsored by #Eneos Oil. This event consisted of two portions obviously a car show and then to prove the point a track day with instruction from some professional drivers. This is full recap of the trip.
Today is the day. RevWorks in Wintersprings, FL has their dyno up and running. It’s time to set their stock turbo STi record!! Yes, I’m the only stock turbo STi who has done a pull but that’s not the point. Still the record holder! At least until one of you steps up and beats it.

The guys at Forged Performance don’t move slowly. You’ve probably seen pics flying around the web of their multiple track cars stomping around the track. If you haven’t get on google and start searching!! They’ve taken delivery of their new 2015 Subaru Impreza WRX STI and they aren’t slowing down. They had a gorgeous wheel and suspension setup on their old STI and have decided to swap it all over to their 2015 STI and see how it worked out. The good news, it works. The better news is they didn’t need to….

SCCA ProSolo and Solo2 Autox classing can be excessively confusing for the un-indoctrinated.
The SCCA Solo2 Rule book is a cluster of rules that attempt to properly categorize each vehicle into “fair” classes. We wont be going into detail on how well they are doing this. This will simply explain the current Class organization structure and basic legalities of each class in regards to the Subaru Impreza. This will also apply to other vehicles but there maybe some minor discrepancies, any questions can be emailed/commented to me or brought up on any of the many National and Local SCCA forums.

Owning a 2005+ Subaru Impreza WRX STi isn’t all smiles and boost. There are a few things that are prone to failure, luckily all of them are well known.
1.) Inner CV Boot on passenger side likes to die at 55k miles
2.) Stock Pistons aren’t bulletproof and can have failure under poor tuning conditions
3.) Oil Pickup failure
#1 There isn’t much you can do except enjoy the car and fix it when it finally decides to tear
#2 Get a good tune as soon as possible, don’t risk a poor tune even for a few highway pulls, get a pro tune and enjoy the car.
#3 Oil pickup failure isn’t something to be taken lightly, unfortunately if and when this failure happens the engine is toast. The Oil Pickup will crack, and it will no longer do its job. The crack will starve the engine of oil and you will cause catastrophic damage. Luckily, there is a solution. Killer B Motorsport developed a more robust Oil Pickup that wont crack!

Volk Racing recently released the new ZE40. It’s a multi-spoke wheel with a mild concave. If has 3 available faces depending on size/bolt pattern. Face 1 and Face 2 look to have good caliper clearance even in the higher offsets.
It’s nice to see Volk Racing offering a standard bronze color on the new wheel. Take a look and tell us what you think. I’ve broken down some of the available sizes and included Brembo Clearance data. Check it out! Hint: they make an 18×12!!
