    Hello from Japan

    Hi all,

    My name is Frank. I live in Subaru land near tokyo. I got a WRX STI version 4 (1998). I went through the most obvious mods:

    - TEIN SuperStreet suspension
    - Apexi catback
    - Blitz bov
    - Potenza RE-01R tires
    - black windows

    I just bought an STI version 5 downforce wing from Yahoo auction. (big InitialD fan!)

    You can see pics here:

    and

    http://sti.webhop.net

    On that latest page, u can see some vids, including one sunday race at Tsukuba circuit TC1000 (class C in Mazda Sport-20 (looks like Protege 5 in US).

    and some pics of my car crash at 100 km/h..can't believe I just came out with a broken hand!!

    This may seem like a stupid question, but is that your actual license plate? If so, it's awesome and completely appropriate that a Subaru would get "555".
    By the way, that's an awesome car, and welcome to the club.
