I'm just a little shy.. HAHAHA. anyways thanks for reading and answering my questions!!
    a large group of us used to have our own "events" at open lots when i had the 240, about ten years ago, and wherever we could find the space without obstruction or too much attention being drawn to ourselves, someone smarter than me laid out a course with pylons and rubber garbage cans. much later i found out there was a legal way to go about doing what we enjoyed so much. i dropped it for a long while and now that i have the wrx and seeing all the folks on here in scca and the auto-x vids, the interest came back to me and i committed to joining and did it.

    i was shy even getting back into the sport, no worries. it can definitely be intimidating but i soon found out that group of people in scca are incredibly friendly, helpful, resourceful, and are really dedicated to growing awareness of the sport. they have a great forum and a great audience of peoples at the events. check out scca.com and look up your region. talk to the recruiting coordinator and i'm sure you'll be hooked. it's really cheap, usually around seventy bucks for a year membership and each event is anywhere from 15-30 bucks. this is dependent on your region. you'll have a blast and progressively just learn more and more and again the folks involved, as long as your respectful and not a douche, are the best. g'luck!

    pm me if you have any other questions, i'd love to help you get started if you're serious.

    Re: monkiboy - build journal

    looks like after a lot of searching, phone conversations, pms, etc i've finally found my 05 sti tranny for my 6 speed swap, and it's local'ish (three hours away)! it'll be cheaper to pay for the gas then to have it delivered and i can see it and inspect it first hand before handing over a wad of cash. i'm excited. i will be picking it up next week, thursday at the latest! the swap will happen most likely two or three weeks after that and i make sure i have the dccd and driveshaft worked out. i need to start researching which aftermarket controller i'm going to use.

    yeah working on the car is a great stress reliever and really enjoyable! dude, i can't wait for the tires/wheels to get done. gonna be such gratification after a forever wait, haha. swap will probably happen weeks afterwards seeing how backed up the shop is.

    i knew the jokes were gonna be coming, haha.

    thanks for reading, i'm excited to be blessed enough to have the car and have money to work on it. it's gonna be a stessful but fun next couple months trying to figure everything out.

    i dont have the car at the moment to take photos of and i did a piss poor job of photos while i had it, just the isolated random ones floating around here. i'm definitely going to be a lot better at documentation, photos, and vids once i get her back and the build continues, promise!

    ps - the six speed ad other required parts for the swap are getting picked up tuesday @ 4pm. now i just need to figure if i got the cheapo route and get a dual piece driveshaft from a early gen or a aluminum single piece, "better performing" dss driveshaft.

    Re: monkiboy - build journal

    i'll post some pics here tonight. just random ones from random stages of the car.

    i updated the parts list...

    i bought my 6speed clutch/flywheel combo today along with a beatrush tranny mount, cobb short shifter, and a dccdpro controller for the swap that is supposed to start early next week. shifter bushings, crossmember bushings should all transfer over fine. still need a driveshaft; i'll either purchase the dss one piece aluminum shaft or pick up a used off a early gen legacy at the shop.

    wow that's awesome. I actually like those cf eyelids. But man your intercooler looks tiny with the bumper on, and HUGE with it off haha.
