big list eh!
That and the Lego+ability..Yeah, you should be in the "Car Construction" forum.
I haven't seen the Clear Water team at US events this year. Sticking closer to home or have I been too busy to notice?
While I agree with John that there are cheaper cars to build, a Subaru (in my experience) works well if you keep it simple and stock.
The best part of a Subaru is that there is no end to the support in the rally community. There is always several teams at each event offering knowledge, crew support, and parts.
If you followed the evolution of Subies in the WRC you'll see that it follows virtually the same course as Ford with Sierra Cosworth and Misterbitchy Gaylant (<---and that right there is sumpin that Jude came up with..he had some dumb friend who was kinda the cliche Mass-hole always looking for a argument and offense, a typical 20 something jerk...and the guy drove a Galant---a car Jude knows I like..one morning here in Sleezattle I get a call and its Jude and he's giggling like a schoolgirl and says "Dude , my freiend with the Galant just showed up and i had a brilliant flash, it came to me in a vision, a great Gratuitous Vanlandinghamism, hang on and listen, he's coming in the door" and i hear the car pull up, the guy comes in and mumbles a greeting and Jude says to him "So, how's the old Misterbitchy Gaylant going today?" and i could hear the guy blowing a gasket and shouting all kinds of stuff and clearly angy but Jude just keeps going, Well it's running good for a GAY-lant" and howling with laughter at the guy who is now "gonna fawk him up!" He comes on the line giggling "Oh that was perfect! You can use it, it was inspired by you anyway so have fun with it!")Yes, Jude is very fast in his Legacy. I don't know what he's got for a drive train, but it's easy to start cheap and upgrade later when you get the skills to use it. Jude only runs tarmac, though. Which, I guess says more about his speed in that car.
As far as I know Michelle has been running the Ontario/Canadian events so far. Ian seems to be easing into a crew chief role, except when he brings the Porsche out to play.I haven't seen the Clear Water team at US events this year. Sticking closer to home or have I been too busy to notice?
