Hi all,

Im Martin from dunfermline.

Pretty new to the whole track day scene, but have been a spectator for many years until I got the urge to buy a track car in January.
Bit of a petrol head myself with having a 343bhp new age impreza and now the classic shaped STI impreza for the track.

The car is a 1996 white jap import impreza. There isn't a whole lot of mods but ill list the ones currently fitted.

Standard 2lt turbo lump
full decat 3" exhaust
standard intercooler
blitz induction kit
intercooler water spray
lightened flywheel and stage 3 ACT clutch kit
4 pot front caliper and disc upgrade with track pads. braided brake lines and racing fluid
front and rear whiteline strut braces
front and rear whitline uprated arb's and droplinks
standard suspension with Ebach springs
full cusco roll cage
interior stripped out and fitted with harnesses
and semi racing tires.

the car has been well looked after by its previous owners with screeds of history and receipts so im guessing it was a good start for a fun track day car.
im not too fussed about making the car much faster but more down the route of being a safer car. looking to carry out the modifications bellow after my holiday to florida in july.

front mount intercooler
coilovers and geo set up
baffeled sump
oilcooler
bigger rear brakes.

im by no means a track warrior but just having great fun out enjoying the fun.

Welcome to the club.

I'd recommend brakes/pads and tyres first before modifying anything else. Then you can start to build and build.

aye aye Smile Get some pics up. Plenty of other Imprezas on here Very Happy

Rear brakes - I have the standard items (different discs/pads) on my Impreza... they work fine on track.

Oil Cooler - a must
Baffled Sump - nice, and worthwhile if pushing on grippy tyres
