    None of us drive a rally car. We drive AWD turbocharged economy sedans/wagons.

    Ah, "Niche Econobox Rally Deriviative", makes sense, but what if you are turning it into a rally car?

    It's not just that, it's also the shoe company logos and the energy drink stickers that make up the rally car.

    Nice edit.

    Why not post up your "rally car" then? Start with under-hood shots of the strut towers and the other chassis modifications this beast has.

    I have. I've seen tons of 3rd gen WRXs and STIs. I hate to break it to you, but your car is not unique.

    I was getting gas last night on my way home from work around 11. A cop drove past and stared me down, next thing I know hes pulling into the entrance on the other side and drives really slow next to me while still staring at me, gets back on the roads and continues on his way...
    I feel like you are embelishing this by maybe just a tad. I've been pulled over once in my WRX and it was because the officer felt that my music was too loud. Your car is not fast even if it's modded. "Fast" is actually a subjective word when it comes to cars anyway. While you may be fast compared to Civics and Integras, you are slow compared to 911 Turbos and Ferraris.

    I rarely get looked at by cops. And the only people that look at my car are either trying to figure out what the hell it is, are teenage boys pointing and/or drooling (lol my favorite) or a middle aged man asking me if I like my subaru (happens the most) Oh and non car educated folks always ask its that Mazda :banghead:

    I've read these "cops give me the deathstare" stories on here for years, and it's always confused me. Having spent a fair amount of time in lowered, gold-wheeled, WRB, Cobb-exhausted WRX's, I really don't get much in the way of hostile looks from the constabulary. Maybe I don't project enough "tough guy" vibe.

    Like I said, y'all obviously haven't seen my car, it is pretty damn unique, considering it is custom.

    As far as wanting pics of the rest of my suspension, yall are wanting a stage rally car, I'm not building her for stage rally, I'm building to maybe do some rally-x sometime.

    I've always wondered the same thing. Growing up in the taxation by ticketing suburbs of Chicago and partaking in far too much vehicular asshattery I found that usually when I attracted attention of law enforcement, I earned it. . . well, I earned a lot more than that. Even in my obnoxiously loud, stinky, snarling Evo I got minimal attention.

    I've got an intake on my Scion, building a NHRA funny car.
