Got Toby home, tore into him and put on TiC fender braces. Kinda ran out of steam so, I'll be putting him back together later today or tonight.

Autocross this weekend! w00t.
Came here for a 6speed and rotated turbo setup... left disappointed.

New (to me) tires: Hankook Ventus R-S3s 255/35/18. Oh dear Lord are these sticky. Thanks to Travis for the last minute hook-up.

That, and went back and fixed (most of) the picture links.

New ****: 4" delrin with a 3" Torque Solutions extensions.

Yes, it's really as big as it looks in the picture.

No, I'm not compensating.

Yes, the throws are a bit longer now, but the height is perfect for me and I like where it sits.

Good gawd, how do you fit those tires on a GD wagon? I'm barely making clearance with 235/40-17 at all four corners

H&R springs + 18x8.5 +44 wheels + -0.5 degrees front camber + -1.5 degrees rear camber + slight roll of the rear fenders = barely ever rub.

Checking out the tire-strut clearance, I could still fit a 265 in there, but then I'd probably rubbing a lot more in the rear.

New headunit, Pioneer DEH-X8600BH.



Halle-freaking-lujah for Bluetooth autoconnect. And, as a bonus, sounds amazing!

Added painted sideskirts and Prodive mudflaps a while back.



And just recently, JDM oval side markers (props to SUMBARU at Acme Auto Body) and 17x8.5 +48 Rota Slipstreams with 255/40 Yoko S-Drives (thanks to Sybir for feeding the habit) which will be eventually replaced with R-S3s after the winter.
