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.
