  1. hi- congrats on your new WRX I'm in Glendive occasionaly for work (but that's in my truck )- I belong to the Yellowstone SCCA, but I haven't raced in Billings for some time as their venues leave a little to be desired (on the small side), I do go to Helena though quite often though as they have a great place to race

    Hey bro you seem like the go to guy for wrx questions around here. I'm not new to cars. i am new to subarus though and wanna learn to work on mine. I had a question about spark plugs. what is the difference between copper platinum and iridium and which one would work best on and 02 wrx? thanks
  5. Hi. I have questions re. your GG thread.

    Koni has a new set of inserts / shocks for the GH but Koni USA doesn't have them in their system, or stock. Part #s are 8610-1453Sport and 8010-1055Sport. They are available overseas, but price is 2x the LGT set in the US. I might copy your build instead.

    What adj. are you using on your car and how would the LGT Konis do with the '08 STi springs I would use with them. I know the fr. will be lower 10mm and the rear unchanged. Since the LGT rears need a groove cut to move the perch, what would you do... cut at 15mm up to keep the same rear height or 5mm up to even out the drop?

    The rear stroke is shorter on the LGT Konis. Is that good or bad at stock or near-stock ride height? My car is a DD, no autox, just some spirited pass road driving.

    Hello - New here and kind of lost. I see that you are the go to guy on changing spark plugs. I could only find the last page of your thread about it. I'd really appreciate some help. Thanks much.

    Hello Big Sky-
    good afternoon. I'm jimountain over on Nasioc and IWSTI,too
    last I checked I was number 5 for the rear knuckle tool- wanted to check up on status/time out
    just looking for a good suspension setup- and wondered if you are still keen on the DMS 40mm. Car is D.D. but I want to be serious with it at the track too.
    cheers for now,
    Jim
  9. sorry I missed your message (pm works better)- the Com C's are a Group N like in they offer firmer bushings, they also offer modest increases in caster and camber- I think they are a great idea for those needing less than full on neg camber

    if you keep the camber reasonable (say -2.0 or less) and keep toe 0 you'll be fine for tire wear- rotate them often as this helps as well (I do mine w/ every oil change- more often during autox season)

    Concerning top hats. I was reading about the group N's. Then I came across the Whiteline com c's which seem to be cheaper. Was wondering if you had heard good things about them. Are they easy to adjust? I looked on the flatirons tuning website and it seemed like they were a step down from full on camber plates.

    My next question concerned camber and tire wear. I had read on the alignment sticky that camber is a good thing as long as toe is at 0. I plan on running autox about 6-10 times a year and my wrx is mainly a DD. I'm looking to finish my suspension set up for this year with the Tic-Tok package from TIC with RCE Blacks! =-)
