    new member (aka, why'd i buy a WRX?)

    Some of you know me from NASIOC, but figured I'd say "hey" here too. I go by CamaroFS34 there. I just bought a 2006 WRX (silver with ghost flames.... yeah, kinda cheesy), after selling a 2000 Impreza 2.5RS. I still own two fourth gen Camaro Z28s though, 'cause I love my V8.

    Figured I'd look around here too, as I'm setting my WRX up for DS autocross, and needed to replace a few things and get a few others. I've already put on an ERZ exhaust and BHP front brakes, and will be putting a Whiteline adjustable 27mm bar on next week, along with my Koni inserts.

    If you autocross, maybe I'll see you around at an east coast event; I tend to go to a lot of Virginia, NC and ATL events.

    Welcome.......it's a little different here then Nasioc.


    I actually like a nicely down ghost flame paint...do you have any more "detailed" pictures rather then the one in your avatar of the flames?

    I don't really have a lot of pics yet. I hope to get some more of it in action when I am done with the setup. It will probably see the "light of day" at the Autocrossers, Inc. season opener on May 10th, and then I'll take it down to Atlanta for the ProSolo down there.

    The picture in my avatar is weird. It looks like the flames are gray there, but they usually look more light lavender/blue.

    Greetings and welcome to the (more quiet and friendly?) club!

    Subtle "ghost" flames are quite nice. Definitely check out our Auto X , Track & Circuit thread.
