I also daily an ethanol fueled, AWD, rally inspired car. Except mine is a wagon, and the pistons go side to side instead of up and down.PEZi wrote: ↑Thu Nov 14, 2019 10:24 pm10 years ago I was hood ratting and doin racecar s***...
Today I just work a lot. I have a pretty cool family... still hood rat and talk about overthrowing the government. Oh, and I still do racecar s***... just can’t afford the actual track time anymore. I just daily an Ethanol fueled Evo with a twin disk clutch because..... well because racecar!

Oh I know. I did a build on a BR350 Limited EVO IX, and I know how much the owner paid for the car with a windowed short block. It had the leather recaros removed and it was still worth more than everything I have into my car and then some.
Yep, those are tough to come by. This was also an SE, but was something like No. 22 of 26 BR350s built. When he was done with it I think someone paid upwards of 30K for what at the time was a very capable, but very "well used" 10 year old mitsubishi. It was a potent track weapon no doubt, but we killed a lot of the streetability to do it, and I think thats why he let it go. The GR WRX we built to replace it is a lot more daily friendly, but will still embarrass a Hellcat on the streets or a road course.PEZi wrote: ↑Fri Nov 15, 2019 3:29 pmMine is the ix MR”SE” or “2006.5”
Came with the Recaros that have the red stitching, front air dam, rear spoiler lip, brake air guides.... basically a hybrid SE edition and MR edition that they made as a send off or tribute to the 4G63. Still has an ‘06 VIN but was essentially at 2007 model year. No one apparently knows the real number produced, but in my color we know for sure less than 300... there may even be less than 300 in all colors for the trim level.
I’ve been trying to get out to the valley, as well. For better or for worse, I’m in the process of getting on with a buddy on a startup distribution company and that will likely keep me in CO for the next 10 years or so....DrifterXRPS13 wrote: ↑Mon Nov 18, 2019 10:13 amWe plan on moving to Arizona in a year or two after i finish my bachelors and have some experience. I'm so over winter and being trapped in my house for more than half the year. I'll be so excited to see cars with no rust that i can buy to add to my collection.
