    Yeagreat to see another track car in the Subaru club
    Love the car man can't believe there is not more of these at track days and race events.
    Should make a great track/race car.
    My sister had one of these for 6 years and never skipped a beat.
    Very best of luck with it what ever road you take with it.
    I'll be keeping an eye on your progress

    Sump baffle....

    Had the car in with my mechanic for an overhaul today. He was very happy with it, two bolts need replacing on the heat shield over the exhaust manifold cos its rattling. And replace the lift bolts as they are known to give trouble and thats it!

    He did say he would highly advise me to get a sump baffle if I was going to be tracking it. So had a quick look around and cant seem to find any. this is the only one I found, but it cost half what I paid for the car! lol.... http://www.ebay.ie/itm/321837318755?...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

    So I was wondering if anyone here knew of anywhere making them, or adapting existing sumps to cope with the g forces of track use and oil pickup issues that arise from same. It would be such a shame to cause engine damage for the want of one.... I'm sure lads are making baffles or have some solution to it???

    Any and all opinions welcome....

    He has the right to have and share his opinion. The fact that his opinion differs from reality, is however irrelevant.

    Got my sump back yesterday. had a plate welded into it to stop any oil pick up issues on track. Hope it works ok now!!!

    Picked up two pirelli P zero tyres for the rear also. So I have two bridgestones on the front and the two pirellis on the back. Should be interesting!

    And of course, two competition door numbers, sure why not! 8 is my lucky number!!!

    Track day oil choice?

    What oil would be a good choice for track day use? I saw today Mobil have a fully synthetic 10w 60 Motorsport formula oil.... Would that be a good or bad choice?

    I might try the 10w40 so, see how it goes for day 1 anyway. I was nervous enough about the sump, always dodgy messing around with oil flow! Then someone said to me the plate would prevent the oil getting back down to the pick up pipe!!!! agghh

    There's always someone to knock what you are doing,all looks good to me just enjoy it manShould be a great car on track id focus on some suspension and brake mods this will make the biggest difference around Mondello.You should have plenty of power and if you want more power make it lighter it's cheap to do that
