    Part VIII: 9.73 @ 149.85 mph

    In order to best serve the local Subaru community, World One needed the best tech in the area. Garret looked no further than import specialist, Wayde Segawa. Wayde's been working on imports longer than most of us have owned Subarus, with his roots in the Honda scene. Not only is he our head tech here, but he also builds motors and fabricates custom piping. He used this automotive expertise in his own personal drag-prepped CRX.

    The B18C5 motor that Wayde built himself is pushing close to 600 whp, using a GT35R variant and custom fabricated headers, exhaust, roll cage, and chassis prep, all done by Wayde himself in house. With Wayde in the car, it roughly weighs in at 2200 lbs. Back in 2005, Wayde competed at Seattle's Battle of the Imports and took home a huge trophy, beating out all of the competition with a 9.73 @ 149.85, all done on his "low boost" setting of 24 psi. Look for some more awesome working coming from Wayde and our Subaru motor building division, Impact Designs. Pics:

    Part IX: Legacy of Greatness

    Whenever you walk into World One, you're greeted by a friendly face behind the counter that goes by the name of Vince. Like Wayde, Vince is a local import scene veteran. He's worked at a number of places before World One, including Garage SPL where Alex used to work. He also assists Wayde in any tech duties and takes care of the majority of our local customers.

    Along with a Honda S2000, Vince has his daily driver, a Legacy GT wagon. He's slowly but surely building it up: currently it sports a rare set of 19" Volk Progressive TEs, with STi Brembos under them, along with being dropped on a set of Tein Flex coilovers, Cobb uppipe and downpipe, along with a TDC Protuned AccessPort. Keep your eyes out for this car, as we've all got some big plans for it to come. Pics:

    Part X: Rally Monster

    Getting back to Subaru's rally roots, World One looks no where other than our own Jonathan. Jonathan's the voice you normally hear other than Garret whenever you call in, and has been an integral part of World One for over a year now. He's our resident Prodrive nut and rally freak, taking his car to local rallies whenever and whereever he can. At his first rallycross near Olympia, WA, he placed 1st in his class and 5th place overall. He also has another rally car that he competes in, and place very well in it this past weekend at the Mt. Hood Rally.

    As you can see, Jonathan's car is all rally'd out. The Prodrive PWRC1s in 18s are the first things that stand out, complete with dirt as any rally car should be. He's dropped on 04 STi springs and struts, with Borla headers and a custom intake and catback giving him power. And, to get those slow rally cars out of the way, a set of Hella Supertones hides behind his Liberal-style grill up front. Pics:

    Part XI: Bugeye for Life

    I don't like to talk about myself, or my car for that matter. The idea of coming anywhere near sounding boastful or conceited really bothers me, because it's one of the things that I dislike about people in general. That said, I'm not going to try to talk up my car at all, but just let the facts and pictures speak for themselves.

    I took delivery of my 2002 bugeye when I got off the bus and walked to my house in March 2001. It was sitting there waiting for me...turned out to be an early college graduation gift from my parents, since I was on my way to graduate from the University of Washington in June that year. It turned out to have a 4EAT tranny, and I've been poked and jabbed about that ever since But, what I always tell people is that when you have a new car as a present waiting in your driveway for you, you don't complain about anything.

    In any case, the full story and history of my car can be found in the April 2006 issue of Subiesport Magazine, entitled "Bugeye in Blue." It's way too long to post here. What I do have here though is what I've done since then. After the rebirth, the interior was completely redone by Car Nutz Custom Upholstery, matching the rear seats and door cards with the front Recaro fabric, and re-covering the headliner in a very nice grey suede. Audio Integrations also came through to help re-do my stereo system, putting in an Alpine IVA-W200 and a whole bunch of Diamond Audio goodies. Finally, the WRB Hella Supertones were added to finally finish off the front grill area.

    Now that I'm officially a World One employee, I've got a bunch of new things in mind, but for now they stay top secret. Here's 5 of many pictures:

    Part XII: Red Domination

    As one of the local Subaru veterans, Erik Allas has been a long time and well-loved member of the Northwest Subaru community. He was one of the first people I ever met in the local scene here, and continues to be a very close friend and fellow photographer (and that's not just because we're both GB&D). His 2001 2.5RS has gone through many iterations, from being purely a street car, to being a best in class car show winner, to now being an extremely fast and capable daily driver. I still remember when I first photochopped on some bronze Volk CE28Ns onto his car and told him that THOSE were the wheels he needed; and wouldn't you know it, he went and got them.

    I really can't think of anyone more experienced in different Subaru performance ideas than Erik. The only thing he hasn't tried is supercharging...he first started off running nitrous, then threw on a Ludespeed Stage 3 turbo kit (that coincidentally, uses a T3/T4 turbo) and tuned the car himself with the Link Plus standalone, and then finally went with a EJ205 swap with a full TurboXS Stage 4+ kit, much in thanks to both World One and Pacific Import Auto in Tacoma, WA. On top of winning Best Subaru at a number of local car shows and having a lengthy Subiesport Magazine feature on his car and motor swap, Erik ran his fastest 13.1 with a bogging 2.2 60-foot at this year's Battle of the Imports, besting his previous 13.2 with a 1.8 60-foot with his old turbo kit. 12s were pretty much a given with a better launch, but unfortunately the car was retired thanks to a broken alternator belt. Next year though, we all shall see. Pics:

    Part XIII: The World Rally Blue Menace

    The first time I met Donn Dupaya was at a World One dyno day 2 years ago. He had just moved up here from California with his 04 WRX and we talked for a long time about what he wanted to do with his car. I introduced him to Garret and things really took off from there. Now a member of Seattle's elite car show club, Team Menace, we see each other at every car show and give each other fun and friendly competition for the coveted 1st Place Subaru trophy.

    Currently, Donn's car sports a full Do-Luck body kit, complete with the Do-Luck lowpost spoiler. He's even rolling on Do-Luck's Subaru-specific, 17-inch racing wheels, which go over STi Brembos and Project Mu rotors. He also has the one and only Do-Luck carbon fiber hood and hood scoop in the country. A full Stage 4+ lies under the hood, complete with all the suspension and interior goodies to make him one of the cars to beat in the local Subaru car show scene. He's got even bigger plans for his car now, just wait and see. Pics:

    Part XIV: Accept No Substitutes

    This customer car has been an ongoing project of ours for a number of months, and has finally come to fruition. It is a purpose-built race car, with everything chosen for functionality rather than simple aesthetics. At first glance, the Ings +1 body kit, SYMS wide front fenders, and Rotora Dry Carbon spoiler plant the car on the ground lap after lap. Sticking the car to the ground are meaty Pirelli 10-inch wide slicks, wrapped around extremely light weight SSR Comps and a StopTech big brake kit. Under the hood is a plethora of power mods, consisting of a World One-spec Stage 2 shortblock, forged pistons, FP Green turbo, APS DR725 FMIC, Fujitsubo equal length header with a World One-spec external wastegate/downpipe combo, and a JIC full titanium catback, all working together in harmony thanks to a Hydra EMS standalone. In addition, a full carbon fiber driveshaft helps transmit the power to the rear wheels.

    Cusco Zero2Rs along with Hotchkis sway bars provided the footing, while a Seibon carbon fiber hood, trunk lid, and front and rear doors help keep the weight down. These doors are crazy light compared to the stock ones. On the interior is a full JDM v9 Spec C RA interior, with Sparco buckets, a full Autopower roll cage, and Defi gauges. We're excited to see what kind of numbers this car tears through at the track!
