    Default Fix My List, My Open Light 2.5RS

    Hello!
    Iím starting to build my 2000 2.5rs for RA open light. Iím new to rally, but im capable enough to drive off the road. I am hoping to complete by Mt Hood.
    I have a partial idea of what needs to be done and I am hoping for some input/suggestions for parts, and to complete my list which I am certain is missing key components.
    I will continue to research on my own to find the answers, but if you know of a good part/solution to any listed items Iíd love to hear your opinion.
    Links to forum posts that I can read to would be great. Please preface with ďuse the search tool jackassĒ as is customary.
    Also, YUP means I have it or it is on the way.

    I would separate your list in to 3.

    Required:

    Need:

    Want:


    Get all the requirements and necessary things done first, wants last. Go Rally!

    www.rally.build will be a great resource as they have build, supported, and rally Open Light cars.
    Gone to Group 5 Rear Wheel Drive!!! Car #50

    I'll catch you if I can!

    Love how the forum format completely trashes excel formatting.

    Well, instead of 3 lists ill just go one at a time!

    Brakes! I'm trying to figure out how to run my brake lines. Currently the car has ABS and I need to run the new brake lines after ABS delete.
    I'd like to have a hand brake and brake bias. Anyone have a diagram on how they ran their brake lines?
    Suggestions on rear drum/rotor replacement? Or just pull the drum crap out and run it as-is? (With hydraulic handbrake of course)

    Thanks,

    Gierman

    Since you're in Oregon I would look to either Primitive for suspension and some of the other stuff or All Wheels Driven in Bend Oregon. They both have very solid Subaru and rally experience. You won't do any better or save any money messing about elsewhere.

    Welcome to the looney bin.

    Read the stickies.
    Don't believe everything JVL tells you (or any of the rest of us...).

    Go out and work a rally (volunteer, crew, tech, etc.).
    Have you been to a rally?

    Remember, we are here to have fun. Mostly we are just racing for plastic trophies.

    press on,

    Yeah stickies, I'm working on it.
    I volunteered for Mt. Hood rally last year. Hoping to get the car done this year for Mt Hood.
    I need to get on rallydata and volunteer for for Oregon Trail.
    Last time I was a road block expert, actually it was a bike trail, but I had to stop like 15 people.
    Good for spectating but I might try for something else this time.

    Heymagic, yeah Primitive is probably my best bet. I just work the exact hours they work. I'll have to take some time off to go harass them.

    Also, who is JVL? I use http://www.jvlusa.com/ motors at work sometimes...


    HAHA... I kid obviously, he is ubiquitous.

    Thanks for volunteering! It is a good idea to move around a bit to learn the different facets of our sport. You're more than welcome to help at Olympus also , I think our volunteer base is about to open on Rally Data also.

    Gene, I'll definitely volunteer for Olympus if i can.
    You seem like the Log Book origination sort of fellow.
    If so, quick questions. Is the dash bar okay to leave stock? It seems pretty beefy, and I didn't see anything in FIA 253 about dash bar. Also, does RA have a supplementary rule set for cages?

    Dave, how would you go about acquiring such a document from said Randy?
