OMG. I totally forgot to put that.

I am not sure when I swapped front brakes with Kevin M. Must have been somewhere in between my wheels and the hood. I want to say it was near the time I got my headers and exhaust on. Anyways, Kevin M needed L brakes so he wouldn't get bumped up a class for his wagon, and I decided to swap mine for the upgraded 2.5RS brakes that came on his OBS wagon. Pulled up to his dad's place in Vacaville where he more or less swapped brakes in under an hour. Wow!! So... that's really that. L to 2.5RS front brakes. Thanks Kevin.

edit (added 11-06-07): I should mention that my brakes, both front and rear bumped me up in class. I should probably be higher up, but I found a nice spot in STX. Still out-classed, but still learning how to drive. Not too worried about being petitioned. You can't really petition the slowest guy. Hehe.

Another comment about the catback. I usually leave the silencer in. It is kind of loud and I am sure it is fine for daily driving. No need to have all that noise. I use to have the Borla headers on, but decided to sell those. I'd tell ya, it sounded hella loud and hella mean with the combination of the two.

Thanks. It is definitely coming along. I've pretty much come to the most expensive parts prior to swap. I was thinking about a coilover set-up and a set of summer wheels and tires, for track days and mountain runs and what not.

Kind of sucks that there are only a few entry-level coilover applications for the GC's. As for the wheels and tires, typical 5x100 bolt pattern. The only problem I'll run into is that anything bigger than and even in some cases, 225's, will rub. If I remember correctly, Kevin M said that only the rear fenders need to be rolled, but I guess my mileage will vary.

Just got a second set of wheels. Rota SubZero's in chocolate bronze. Going to use that as my auto-x set. As soon as I kill the tires, I'll put on RT-615's or RE-01R's, or something. I'll add pics later.


edit: My brother helped me get my wheels on. Gonna get some pics up later.

~June 2007: Added a second set of wheels to my arsenal. I got Rota Subzero's that were painted in chocolate bronze. I believe the wheels are 17x7.5. They are running on Goodyear Eagle F1 GS D3 (215/45/17). Here is a picture with the wheels.

Looks like a nice project you have there. I have a set of WRX wheels/tires for sale if your interested in a cheap set of track day wheels. Let me know.
