    Beginning mods were new Re-11s for the stock wheels. Then Cobb accessport and some Drag 31s for wintermode.

    Yeah I think they are quite good. Plenty better than stock that is for sure . Thanks for the compliments it has def been a labor of love over the last two years. Now just trying to find the direction for her. As autocross classing is becoming a forefront in her build currently.

    Still need to figure out sway bar setup but I am so conflicted on what would be the best setup. Don't want to buy something that ends up not working out. How are you liking your setup so far Kilby?

    Current additions:

    Recaro sport seat.



    Plastidipped BBS for the winter months.



    Few shots for a photoshoot the other day.

    I like it so far. But I just did the rear. I'm conflicted on the front staying with 22mm or going to the 25mm I find mixed reviews for both lol

    Pretty much the same boat I am in. Unsure what to do on the front and in between sizes. Bigger bar should keep the camber curve more intact during hard corner but how much is really enough.... These are the tough calls lol.

    I have an '05 STi that only sees track duty now. A 22mm bar works fine on the front. I've considered going to the larger bar, but increased negative camber in the front solved my push problems. I run the car at HPT and MAM and the car handles well at both tracks.

    In other news, I need to sit in that seat and see how it feels.
