Re: Wrx 2000 limited edition - seats

Sounds strange to me that your driver & passenger seat backs won't lock in at virtually the straight upright position (ie. 90deg). Like stockhorse, my 2000 WRX seats lock in at virtually 90 degrees, then at various increments from 90 to say 150 degrees or thereabouts.....as you lay the seat back...

Re: Alpha Dog's MY 2006 STi

WOW :shock: :shock: I didn't think I'd see the day when Scott was willing to part with this... I've lost count of the number of club members who comment on the superb condition of the car every time they see it....I urge anyone who is seriously considering this vehicle to inspect it in the flesh, if...

Re: Suggestions for new brakes and rotors

Agree with both Delivan & Yeldz...for your driving criteria & MY00 STi, I'd go: DBA4000 T3 Slotted Rotors Front & Rear Project Mu NS400 Pads Front & Rear AND High Temp Brake Fluid If you were throwing more than 2 x track days per year into the mix, I'd lean towards Project Mu HC800 P...

Re: r-spec tyre options 205/50/16

Ah ok so you do have the AD08R on your current daily...so you know what they have to offer. Fantastic alignments & customer service at Traction Tyres, albeit slightly biased towards Yokis haha I think you've nailed the main downside of going to 17" ...most likely a heavier rim/tyre combo. A...

Re: r-spec tyre options 205/50/16

Yes I think you've covered the major/best offerings in 205/50/16 for street work with very capable track duties. I recently opted for the AD08R on my MY00 GC8 based on the excellent feedback from many club members already using them, plus the very reasonable price (from Traction Tyres in Rowville). ...

Re: Getting back into Subaru's - GC8?

Hope all going ok with the activities that were on your schedule for today. If you end up sticking with the standard GC8 seats and decide to grab the Drivers seat from 'retroguy', I have a VGC seat back with no wear on the seat bolster if you want to combine with the base from 'retroguy'.....my driv...

Re: The daily driver WRX tyre thread.

plusone - as nice as those Koya Racing RG TEK rims are, I'm definitely with Delivan on this one....ditch them & go back to an 18" rim, which is still 1" up on the stock rims for this model (235/45/17's on 17x8 rims). I have 225/35/19's as OEM on my Golf GTI Performance Pack and the rid...

Re: Cold tyre pressures for AD08R for street use.?

Thought I'd post some feedback I received from Andrew (owner of Traction Tyres in Rowville, Yokohama's sole motorsport tyre dealer in Vic/Tas) when I recently went into discuss the wear on my brand new AD08R's after their 1st track day at the club's Sandown round 29-Oct-16. What I learnt & under...

Great to meet you yesterday Adam - and sorry that your GC8 let you down on the way up Baw Baw. Glad to hear that you did make it home, albeit slowly & carefully....I kept my eyes peeled on the way home just in case I saw you stranded on the side of the road :( Hope you and/or your mechanic are a...

Re: Cold tyre pressures for AD08R for street use.?

Thanks for posting your feedback from PI on Sunday sacar-1....very interesting. A pity that the weather & a red flag hindered your day :thumbsdow: So in a nutshell, you went from running 35psi hot at your previous 2 track days to having the 4 tyres ranging between 40-45psi hot after your 1st ses...

Re: Sandown Wrap Up (29/10/16)

Thanks very much magoo, very kind of you to post the AGI link, quite a few options for the GC8....and wow, 80 orders ahead of you....although I'm not surprised as there does appear to be a real surge in safety awareness amongst club level motorsport lately, per this very forum thread.
