    I don't have a build thread but I've got some in-progress cage pictures. Some of them are in this gallery at the bottom but I have more, toss me an email at [email protected] and I'll dig them up and send them along.

    Yeah, there's lots of open light cars in the northeast as well. I think we had 16 OL cars start STPR. I want to run Tall pines, unfortunate i'd be an Open car though.

    Looking at the CARS rule set..

    Production 4WD:
    The absolute minimum real weight of the car is set at 3350 pounds. This is the real
    weight of the car, without fuel, driver, co-driver and their personal equipment

    so any special plans on how to hit 3350 ?

    honestly as a serious note, if you stripped a GC Down to 2700 ish with cage, I'd try to make a lead skid plate and put some HDPE plastic over that. nearly 600 pounds of ballast would really lower your center of gravity.


    and i was just about to bitch and complain that their Open 4wd (non turbo) has a 2900 lbs

    Thinking about trying to do big white winter rally ... I'm not so sure about strapping literally 200 pounds of ballast in the car though ... .. though i suppose i could hit a perfect 50/50 weight distribution

    My '93 Talon TSI has a manufactured curb weight of 2791 it's CARS log booked and I have no added weight. There are exemptions to the minimum weights as some of the smaller 4wd cars aren't close just apply to the Technical director. Rule 12.8.7

    The RS was specifically called out as a vehicle that can get a curb-weight exemption, though I admit I'm really not a fan of the weight rules as they are written.

    OL is kind of a non-starter up here. Wrx's are cheaper and less rusty than n/a gc8 imprezas typically that doesnt mean you cant get a good deal, but a n/a subie which isnt rusty is going to cost you $4k ($6k if a 2.5rs), at which point might as well get a wrx. We also dont have the no turbo rule RA does.

    Blew up the clutch at PFR, back at it for Big White!

    I've never understood the premium GC 2.5RSes go for! A moderate condition RS seems like it can easily get $5-6k where a similar condition 02-03 WRX goes for $4-5k, often with less miles. Maybe its just bugeye hate? (I like the Bugeye myself, I kind of wish I hadn't sold mine)

    I guess I got a great deal on my RS then! The car is in great shape and all maintenence was up to date with receipts and I paid half of what you guys are saying they go for.

    You can buy $5k 02-03 WRXes all day long here, but they're also salty east coast cars.

    Our GC car was in my partner's family for years and was being retired, so we lucked out there. Definitely wouldn't have paid the market premium for an RS otherwise.
