• Friend: Dude, aren't you going a little too fast? There's a sharp turn coming up
  • Me: Don't worry. I've played enough racing games for this shit


You know, for a privateer, Nick Roberts has one stubborn demeanor about him that absolutely REFUSES to turn him away from rally. Always a top performer in the Super Production class of Rally America, he’s managed to completely thrash his cars in the process, and somehow always gets his cars race ready before the next event. 

Take the recent fire at the Oregon event. His car had nothing that could be salvaged, and with the next rally in three weeks he wasn’t looking very likely to be an entry. However, and Ken Block even admits this is quite a feat with his factory team, with a new sponsor and a shell for an STi, his privateer effort pulls through and builds a new car from the GROUND UP in a matter of 19 days. Absolutely spectacular, but what even adds to it is how he goes on to win in his class at STPR. 

So yes, while his history of crashes and wrecks is great given the number of events he has entered, his skill clearly shows. I wouldn’t be surprised to see him as a major contender in a more open-class vehicle someday soon.

yourenothingbutarat asked: Battlestance, fellow Subaru enthusiast! I need your help D: I've got a 2000 Forester, N'a EJ202. What mods would your recommend for this engine? Looking for anything that'll give me a noticeable increase in power. Thanks for taking the time to read this :)



Well i would say do the usual bolt on’s.. intake, header, a nice exhaust. Sparkplug wires, sparkplugs. If you’re forester is automatic consider swaping for a manual trans that would be the biggest notocible upgrade or even a turbo kit. Depends how deep your pockets are.

An NA ej202? In a Forester? Do nothing to it, that’s the definition of an engine not worth modifying. What a waste of money. Maybe if you had the Forester XT…

Or if you had the ej25d you could do cams (granted more expensive than the sohc ej25 engines, no duh!) with high compression pistons and some other little stuff on top of the aforementioned exhaust upgrades. Which won’t give you near the horsepower of a wrx really but it’ll be fun and that’s what it’s all about.
