What made you decide to modify your car?

It was always a dream after meeting Possum @ driver’s briefing in the 1999 WRC Coffs, we knew then that we one day would build and rally a Subaru.

Whats the next stage with your car?

36mm Restrictor for CAMS regulations, Watersprays, and a closed deck build by MSR.

Do you attend any track days or other racing events? If so how have you done?

We have done pretty well, we had a 10 year break before coming back in 2012. We compete on the dirt in events such as Rallysprints and Rallies and because of that she is tuned specifically for the dirt and regs.

Whats your favourite part about the car?

I don’t think we could narrow it down, but I do really love the note of her, we don’t get to drive it that often like our daily so everytime we are in her it’s a drive to look forward to.

What would be your advice for people getting wanting to modify their Subaru?

Exhaust and a tune but depending on what you want to do or how far you want to go check with your tuner. It’s easy to modify but you don’t want to kill her by not doing it properly or by using poor quality parts. We still book in and check with Michael @ MSR before doing anything, it may sound cheesy but it isn’t worth having to re-do something.
