Rally-X FTW! God I love this. Too bad we can only do it like 2 times a year here and its usually cold and frozen so its even ahrder. I auto-x frequently, hill climb sometimes, and drag race ALL the time. So much fun.

Sweet, i have been trying to get into rally for awhile now. NASA racing (no, not the space boys) used to have a rally school with their own cars but they closed it down right before I could sign up.

I have been doing alot of track events in my old eclipse (with all season tires yo) at a few tracks in the dc area. its be alot of fun but it is such an expensive hobby!

Looks like a early-to-mid 90's Subaru Impreza or Legacy. The hood scoop is pure Subaru.
What we have today is way too much pluribus and not enough unum.

I have to complete another full season of amateur rally-x on grass and gravel courses before I can apply for a stage rally license. That shot was actually taken at a Subaru convention in Hood River, Oregon back in August. They had a rally school there, it was pretty cool and I learned a lot.

The car is a 92 Subaru Legacy Turbo, Ive put nearly 12 grand into it so far, and its an absolute blast to drive. Ive got a new engine on the bench that Im assembling right now, and Ill be finally hooking up the new engine control system that will link up to my in-dash PC for engine monitoring and tuning :D

Cars are really not much different than computers, Ive found out. Just a lot more parts and a lot dirtier ;)

The 1992 Subaru legacy is retro class 8) although my fav Subaru is the Impreza, especially models from 1998 to 2000. They put the stupid round bug eye lights from 2001 on.

There was a guy here selling a 97 2.5 RS with the drivetrain from a 2005 WRX STI in it. I was extremely trying to pull $10G's together for it cuz THAT my friends, is a deal.
