    Thanks!

    Did the first race this weekend, very happy with the outcome

    Have a few pics, the weather was awesome and the track too! 1570 meter and very well deserved the name of a hill climb event







    After we arrived we checked the bolts on the car once more and prepared for the first round (out of 3).











    On my way down to the start. The service area was on top of the hill!





    After the first round i was 9:th overall and 3:rd in my class, stoked with the result!

    After the 3:rd and final round i was up to 6:th overall and 3:rd in my class, super happy!

    Two short clips of my final round, she sounds mean I think

    The car after the race, no leaks and nothing broken! Nice feeling to have a working car after a event



    Home again after the race, super weekend! Couldn't have asked for better

    reminds of the sound the factory rs and gc8s made with colin mcrae at the helm during rally Australia many years ago.

    Yeah, it actually does! Runing a 2.5" mild steel exhaust with a cat at the back, no silencers
    3" downpipe from the HX30W turbo, think the sixe of the turbo makes the sound come trough better

    Power is enough but not massive but enough at this stage, have 232 hk and 356 Nm at the wheels
    But because I don't have the DCCD controler wired up, it is very tail happy

    Haha yeah, the smile was big

    Good work mate!

    I love your trailer too - I've never seen one like that!

    I'm glad to hear it all came together and worked well!

    Cheers

    Oh really? Very common design in Sweden, this one is manufactured in the southern of Sweden!
    Hydraulic tilt on the trailer to make loading easier





    Aluminium construction, 540 kg empty with a loading capacity of 2460 kg

    I'm very happy that the car held together and that the mods I did made the car feel better

    Hi everyone!

    Been busy wrenching on the car and preparing it for the next event

    Got some better tires than the ones I got, not new but nearly!



    Installed my MapDCCD but it turned out that my DCCD diff probably is toast.
    Low ohm reading... The previous owner had run it with 12 v direct current so the coils are probably damaged!
    Will need to measure the inductance to be sure

    Anyway, did a race this saturday running the diff open (40/60), was a blast but it was a bit tail happy



    Before the start of the race, got my launch control set up by a friend!

    The car was runing good, just some strange ECU related stuff that I quite couldn't figure out.
    Was a very nice event, a but rainy but was super fun

















    Finished on 5th place overall with 23 cars making it to the finish, pretty happy with the result
    As one can see from the last pics, when it goes wide it really goes wide
    Nearly clipped a rock on the last pic but manages to keep the car on it's wheels!

    After the race I cleaned the car, was very muddy



    After the race I checked my logs from the Link G4 ECU and saw some strange things there too.
    The DI5 input that toggles the ECu logging was default activated when the ECU was turned on!
    By a chance I checked the firmware verion in the ECU and it was very outdated...
    I'm 100% I updated it before I got the car on the dyno but something must have gone wrong
    While reading the change logs I found all my problems as fixes to newer versions so the ECU problems is hopefully solved.

    The problem I got now is low voltage reading during the race, think I have some earting problem or a faulty battery Will have to check them!

    On a side note, bought a 1987 Subaru 1800 coupe turbo auto with a borken engine
    Is in really good shape, been used in the northern of Sweden for it's whole life!
    Got it dirt cheap, payed around 2500 SEK (around 360 AUD) so that is a future project!

    It is the same as a Leone, just a coupe version
    Not common with turbo and auto though!

    Bugger me mate, you're a lucky fella!

    That coupe is my "MUST HAVE" subaru - but as already mentioned, they were never released in Oz. I know of three in our country.

    If I had one and the paint wasn't much good on it I reckon it'd end up cherry red with gold rims and a WRX conversion under the bonnet.

    NZ is close, but import costs kill this idea

    Keep up the good work on the rally. Neat pics too. With limited rally experience of my own, in those pics it looks like you're not turning into the corners enough for the front wheels to pull the front of the car around the corner. But with that said I don't know if you're on the throttle or off the throttle as my experience in my L series is that when on throttle you turn into the corner and off throttle you turn away from the corner, much like having the hand brake on and turning towards the direction the rear end is sliding.

    I need to get me a liberty to rally I reckon...

    Cheers

    Bennie

    PS: has the coupe go the six gauge cluster with the turbo boost light? And is the auto the AWD version (super rare! I've only seen them in JDM gear that's made it's way over here - and that's in a turbo AWD wagon)?

    Haha thanks!

    Oh, didn't know they were that rare i AU! In Sweden we even got the Coupe RX, with some cool 80's styling package
    Only available in white I think!



    Those are very rare

    This is the interior of my car, got a turbo light and is auto AWD





    Your are very right about turn in, problem is that as i mentioned the DCCD is open (40/60) so as soon as I turn in as much as I want, the end breaks loose
    The coil of the DCCD seems to be burnt so need a new centre diff I'm affraid...
    With that fixed it should be alot faster and not behave as a RWD car on gravel

    I know a guy that rewound his own coil for the dccd. I couldn't tell you how much wire he used or what his process was exactly - but here's the page of the gearbox build thread (for off-roading) where the pic of his jig for the new coil is. Apparently it worked well once rewound.

    The RXII coupe is the one I'd want. I've seen them in red and in the states I think they came out in my favourite subaru sky blue that is the same as my L series. Very nice score ;)

    Cheers

    Thanks alot, been searching for info about that for a while but haven't found anything!
    Will see if I go down that road once the unit is out of the car.

    Yeah, those are very cool!
    But think mine is a nice find for the price and the condition

    Hi again!

    Went to a local track day a few weeks ago, the aim was to some testing of the electrical system to see if the things I had redone made any difference

    It's alot better now, not as much voltage drop as I had last race! Still some work to do but it's getting better!

    I also found out that my brakes are waaay to much biased towards the rear.
    Got lockup on the rear wheels long before the fronts so have some work figuring that out!
    Have seperate cylinders for the front and rear so might have to change the diameter of one of them.
    Haven't checked yet but if it's possible I will first try to swap them front/rear too hopefully get more front and less rear brake

    Anyway, here are som pics from the day!

    Hi!

    Quick update on my white Legacy Turbo. Got it into the garage yesterday, needs a new clutch!
    To be honest, it's not the clutch itself, but the release bearing that has popped out of the preassure plate.
    But I figured since this clutch has done around 70000 km (stock Legacy Turbo clutch) it is best to change the whole thing





    Got a bit done yesterday, only turbo and exhaust left to remove before going on jackstands!

    Got this clutch in a spare parts car I sent so will use it



    Hopefully it will be done before the end of next week!

    Hehe, nope

    Good thing is that I will get an opportunity to fix some small things, eg. change all hoses to better ones under the hood, change gear shift linkage bushings to better ones, gearbox cradle bushings etc

    Yeah, that is true

    Found out htat it was the preassure plate that hade lost the connecting "spring" that holds the throw out bearing in place



    Also found out that the old flywheel and clutch were total garbage! Knew that they could be bad but not this bad...
    Lots of cracks on the flywheel, looks very bad.
    Lucky for me that I have a complete package to mount up








    And lastly just a quick pic of the gearbox on the ground



    Happy that I took it all apart when I saw the condition on everything

    Looks much worse on pics than it is i real life Can't be more than 1 mm at most
    And spekaing of brakes, mounted new Cosworth pads on the front yesterday after I mounted the new clutch
    Don't know if these pads are any good but they were on sale and pretty cheap so I figured what the heck, they are better than the stock pads with 1 mm left that was on the car

    Have the shift linkage at my firends shop, he is making new plastic bushings for it Hopefully it will take away the sloppy feel.
