    Modded 05 4eat vs stock 03 5eat 350Z

    So,
    I picked up my car from PT this past Saturday (they installed the mods in my sig and dyno tuned the whole setup). On the way home, my wife and I decided to make a few runs, her in her 03 5eat 350Z and me in my 05 4eat WRX. From a dead stop without launching either car, she had me beat by half a car until my boost kicked in and we went dead even…although she did have some wheel spin. On the Parkway from 40mph to 80mph she was able to slowly pull away, until I hit full boost and started edging my way back.

    Even though her Z is still slightly faster, I am extremely happy with the job PrecisionTuning did on my car…. I am planning on throwing an even bigger turbo and upgrading my tranny so it can handle the power I am seeking. That should help me put her Z to rest!

    I hit a curb on icy streets, front pass control arm bent. cost a little over $500 at the dealer, new control arm and alignment and everything is fine. They replaced the wheel bearing as well, but did it under warranty.
    I was going about 10 on a steep downhill left turn.
    so far, it looks good, steering and feel is tight and no drift.

    Yeah it's actually just above 70 here today. As opposed to the 32 it was yesterday morning. Stupid weather.

    I hit a curb today. Guy almost hit me pulling out of a parking lot while I was turning in...swerve to avoid and *bump* over the curb I went. No damage though.

    Two weeks ago I hit a curb messin around in the snow hard enough to bend the control arm,the rim, and supposedly a spindle. I haven't gotten the spindle yet but I installed a new wheel, strut(freebie), and the control arms and it still looks pretty bad. So far ..
    Control Arms-230
    Towing-60
    Spindle-145
    Does the spindle bend in these cases? I still have the visit to the alignment shop coming up so there's a few more dollars as well. Atleast I didn't hit the pole that was right beside it...

    yes the knuckle will bend- hard to see w/ the eye- little easier to see w/ an alignment

    also the knuckle only needs to get just a tiny out of shape and you risk ruining your wheel bearing (and every subsequent one replaced thereafter)

    I'd replace the knuckle/hub/bearing if it's still looking out of whack

    I think I went over a curb (or a chunk of it) New Years Eve. I was driving into work, and the snow had drifted so badly that I couldn't tell where the edges of the street began. Hit at about 30-35 and didn't realize how bad it was till after lunch, when I noticed I had a flat right tire. And of course, the Subaru Service department had already called it a day by then. To date, I've replaced both right side tires, the right rear rim and done an alignment. The alignment revealed a slacking first mechanic, a right front that won't come into spec for caster, and a rear wheel bearing making noise.

    The fun comes in when I realize this is far more cost than I can swallow and try to make an insurance claim. Allstate tried to pin this on me rather than the weather, now I'm waiting on someone to review what happened. And to add insult to injury, it's up to whoever my adjuster is to decide if they are going to reimburse me for any of the work I've already paid for. -_-
