Up until this point, I’ve enjoyed rallycross racing for its traits that are the antithesis of endurance racing: less focus on “save the car for a long-distance event,” no need to follow a certain pace for fuel consumption/pit stop strategy, and less boredom over 100+ laps. Instead, the focus is to drive at 100% to set…
The Nissan 370Z and GT-R are 10 years old now, but that EJ25 engine in the WRX STI has gone 15 years without meaningful gains. The BRZ was minimum viable effort for Subaru too. Will there even be more enthusiast Subarus?
Well we did it. My wife wanted to upgrade to a 3 row crossover and since she loved her 16' Forester she wanted to stay with the Subaru name plate. So she followed along with announcements on the Ascent. As soon as she could we pre-ordered one that we could back out on if we didn’t like it. We also test drove a…
I brought my real camera, but wasn’t inspired to use it. Here’s some potato pics.
After my poor placement and some careless ice scraping killed the first one, I’ve finally put one of my spares on.
So first I bought a thing
Headed to the lake with a cheap inflatable kayak that was a Prime Day impulse buy. If I don’t post again it’s because I sank. I had to fold the end to close the hatch. It fits fine in our Outback so next weekend’s plan is to finally teach my wife how to drive a manual.
NOTE: Sorry for the crappy pictures. It has rained about every day since I bought the car, and I haven’t been able to give it its first wash and wax to then take decent pictures.
Brother had a rough weekend with his LGT
I think many here would be fans of this example of a motor vehicle? With markers of proper use on the rocker panels . . .
The new Japan Only(Obviously) STI Type RA-R -325 horsepower and 319 pound-feet of torque
new Launch Control
Traded my 2015 Dodge Dart GT for a 2018 Subaru Outback 3.6R Touring. I am absolutely in love. I first did a test drive a few weeks ago and I went to 3 different dealers to today and did 3 more test drives and fell more in love with the car each time. I’m definitely going to miss my manual and the fun that the Dart…
The sun’s in the sky and I’ve got cool mountain air in my lungs, hot coffee in my cup holder, and a six speed manual transmission gear lever in my right hand. Bring on Friday.
For anyone wondering, no I haven’t sold the pig, gave up on blogging or died I’ve just had some matters that demanded attention be placed there first. Anyway, with those finally squared away to my satisfaction attention has returned once more to working on the blue pig.
Coming soon to a Craigslist near me: one cosmetically challenged but mechanically sound Subaru Forester.
