There's something so cool about seeing a Forester driven hard, knowing full well you could fit the rest of the family in there and scoot down to the shops afterwards. Wouldn't mind taking mine out to Lakeside for some happy laps one day. I'll probably wait until I've got the STi rack and front swaybar first.

Updated the YouTube links, apparently some of you had trouble viewing it. I also included the link to the videos so I hope that works. Let me know if it doesn't.

It's something different and is more of a challenge in some aspects (Bram might say otherwise :lol:) compared to the usual typical track cars such as EVOs, WRXs etc. The reason I went with the Forester was that it was a boxer turbo, different and practical but I could still have some fun if I wanted a spirited drive. Tracking was already in my system prior.

Because I upgraded/installed mods slowly over time, I found it handy to compare/assess which mod did what and how much did it help/improve. I think taking it the track even stock was a good learning experience for me because you've got a base line to work off. It also limits the capacity of the car (if you mod part by part over time and not all at once), which can force you to look in other areas for you to improve. I would be interested to see what Kyle (H-are) can do in my car :lol:

:lol: missus wants a RS4 wagon for the family car... :o


A quick update,

I met up with Phil (hired-goon) about 1.5 months ago when he came down for work and he made an Arduino unit for me to correct the steering angle sensor with the 2.4 quick rack. I haven't modified the case to install the unit into it yet - things have been super busy for me. No photos but I will take some and post them up! I should work on this and install it sometime too.

I have returned the excess -4AN Aeroflow oil lines and fittings (from my oil pressure & temp install) and ordered the 16 row Aeroflow oil cooler. I just need to order a thermostatic sandwich plate (thinking Mocal) with spacer, -10AN oil lines and work out exactly how to mount the cooler. I'm thinking of getting rid of the hella horns (maybe relocate) and installing the cooler behind the grill with some (my) custom mounting brackets.

In other (non-foz related) news, my missus got me a rally experience voucher for my birthday last year. I managed to do it last Saturday week. It was 16 laps with the instructor and then the pro takes you for a hot lap! Great fun and completely different to the track/circuit! Videos below.

Thanks for looking!

Pete.

Great videos once again. That rally track looks a fair bit tighter (in terms of tyre walls etc) than the Ipswich equivalent.
