Hearing a loud grinding noise when I make a slow right turn from the left rear brakes Looked up on some forums and apparrently the ebrake backing plate might be rubbing on the new rotor. I think its was because that rotor was the hardest to remove cause the rust and brake dust has been caked on so had to pull out the rubber hammer. and i think my hammer antics might have bent the backing plate. So monday night's plan is to bend back the backing plate. I hope that is the problem and not something more serious like bearings
So i will give a verdict tomorrow.
^^^ Sorry to hear that. Hopefully it's just the backing plate. Good luck.
I didn't end up doing any brakes this weekend. So I got my VF39 in, all the lines hooked up & ready to go. I also got the turbo inlet in. I should be done by wednesday,...
Time to drink so it was the problem i read about where the new rear rotor was rubbing against a section of the ebrake backing plate.
Solution: Pneumatic hammer
Since we had no dremmel tool to cut of the part of the backing plate that was rubbing we brought out option 2. hammer in the rubbing part with a pneumatic hammer to resses it enough so no more rubbing.
Result: i dam near did a donut in the empty parking lot making a right turn and no rubbing noise
On another note will be buying some rally armor mud flaps before I track my baby, apparently these 225s been kicking up alot more than dust on my side panels.
Im back and forth between RIT and Corning ny all the time. I've seen quite a few around.

Is anyone going to Leicester, NYIRP, for Test & Tune fridays? They have a 1/4 mile track. You pay $13 to run down the track as many times as you like. There's a lot of imports, domestics & street bikes. They also have food available. Good times! I'm most likely going down there.
Don't forget, sunday is Opening Day at Watkins Glen. $20 gets you 3 laps around the track. Let's represent Subaru! I will be there.
So I didn't go to Leicester (NYIRP) on friday. The guy who was supposed to paint my hood scoop tried to pull a fast one on me. Needless to say I didn't get it till saturday & it wasn't even finished. Please don't go to Choice One in Webster, NY. The owner Kelley is a crook & very mentally unstable.
On another note, Watkins Glen was ok. The drive down was nice. There were some other Subies there. I met some guys from Ithaca. We got held up on the track by a slow azz Miata which pretty much made it lame. Damn you! Zoom, zoom, what?! I posted some pics on the Watkins Glen thread. Check them out.
