    Um, that looks really nice. I thought you were building a rally car, not a show car!

    I am getting the car ready for a Car Show this weekend in Big Lake. It is really coming together.
    Still lots to do to before the Lake Superior Pro-Rally in Oct.
    What do you think? Do you like the Mini-Me?

    I started tuning the ECU with Lambda Tuning. So far she is pretty quick.
    Can wait to try it on the stages.

    It was good to meet you Steve! I think you drove the heck out of that car! Especially with your daughter being nearly mute, Lol. Congrats and drive home safely!

    We finished 3rd in Normally Aspirated 4WD and 5th OA in the LSPR regional. Not bad for brand new build that I first drove in anger the day before. My daughter co-driver was very sick and lost her voice and I was very rusty. Still great weekend, the only problem we had was the header unbolted from the exhaust. We even hit 110 on one of the stages. I had to go all the way to Michigan to meet some MN Subaru team members! We need to get together and I can show you the car up close and personal. 75226389_10156315176866010_7533422905481232384_n.jpg

    We were at the spectator point on 2/6 and at the top of the first hill on Herman (you may have noticed the pumpkins). Car looked good and you were driving the wheels off.

    The car was stored for the winter but I am starting to get the itch to start working on it again. I can't wait to drive it again. Will there be any Subaru shows this summer that I can show it off at?

    The COVID Rally Car upgrade plan is to change the clutch, convert the trans to 4.44 and change out the steering rack to a Prodrive quick rack. Plus 2 pages of other misc improvements.
