Haha Pete, we'll see if my front left CV joint lasts... I replaced the front right, but the front left is torn as well now.
A re-cap of this season thus far. It has been a good one, we have been fairly successful at rallycrosses, and the car has put up with tons of abuse, as my girlfriend and I both race it at rallycrosses. The engine has held up, and still runs strong. Not bad for a $300 motor.
The suspension seems to be holding up, I'm still happy with my spring rates and dampers. I think I will attempt to modify the bilstein coilovers to fit my knuckle/hub assembly, because I am dire need of more travel in the front.
At the last rallycross, a divisional, a friend of mine and I blew the front main seal, and put the car out of the race. That has been the first mechanical failure at a rallycross thus far, over 3 years of rallycrossing. Not too shabby.
So far this year I have taken 1st in the Ohio Valley Region in M4, and also 1st in the Great Lakes Division. I'm currently hanging onto 1st in the Western Ohio Region, but a friend of mine, Seth Miller is currently threatening that lead in his new WRX. It will come down to the last event of the Western Ohio Region to determine who takes M4 for the year. It will be a great battle!
