Subaru Challenge in Maryland **Autocross Meet**
 
Alright guys, it is that time of year again :D:D The Subaru Challenge events are posted and the closk is counting down to the first event. That event is the Baltimore, MD event. Here are some ideas that I came up with for the event:

- Combined North/South SVX Meet (Kinda like the "North meets South" meets that they have on NASIOC)
- BBQ in the parking lot for those just there for a show.
- Atleast 5 SVXi should run in the challenge
- Plenty of Video footage to make a few movies of the event :)

THose are just ideas of things that I would like to see happen. First though, we need to see if anyone is even interested in going to the event and running in it...

All the event details can be found here --> http://www.subaruchallenge.com/

Registration is completly online and is capped at 125 drivers.

Lets get a list of interested persons started!! I know this will be a blast... My first AutoX was last year at the Subaru Challenge in Atlanta. All I can say is "I'm hooked for LIFE!!!" COme on out and have GOOD, SAFE FUN in your SVX :)... Show those NASIOC WRX owners what a SVX is capable of :)

One of the whole reasons that I want to put this meet on is that I don't think that more than one SVX has ever run in a Subaru Challenge at a time... Lets blow that outta the water with atleast 5 people this year :D:cool:!!

The greenville subaru challenge a few years ago was classed - but they didn't really pay very close attention. With rims and exhaust I was still classed in G-stock. Probably because I was the only svx and they didn't really know where to put me.

Anyone in the area should make it a point to be there - the all subaru event is a great time.

Yes, there will be classes... Looks like the guys that have changed gears to 4.11 or 4.44 will get shafted and be stuck in SM like I am... That's alright though... You'll just be running against modified STi's :rolleyes: :rolleyes: Yea, the classing is really up to you to put yourself into the appropate class when you sign up... They will do "Tech" the morning of the competition to make sure that ya aren't cheating, so look over the rules for each class on the SCCA Website if you doubt anything... But I can pretty much promise you that with any "non-stock" gear changes, you will be placed in SM.... Since I will be in SM, I am not looking to win anything, just have good runs and beat out some WRX's (Possibly an STi or two *depending on the driver*)...

Here is what I am doing since I am stuck in SM:
- Exedy Light weight Flywheel (13lbs)
- Perrin Lightweight crank pully (1.2lbs)
- New "special" brake fluid
- New pads
- *Possibly Slotted Rotors*
- Either "Zip-tied" lines or Stainless Steel Lines
- Urithane Swaybar Bushings
- Take everything that I don't need out of the car

Everything else is up to me to make a good run. I am pretty confident that I should be able to get the Green Monster into the top 1/3rd of the SM final results.

Biggest thing is weight... FOr those of you that are stuck in a class that you KNOW that you won't be competitave in, Lighten the car and work on your Brakes and Suspension as much as possible!!! OUR H-6 engine is great for AutoX... Now the car just needs to be lighter... I can't remember the ruls as far as lightening the car, but I am pretty sure that all the interior components have to remain, but can be replaced with lighter aftermarket ones (Seats, ect...) You have about 2 1/2 months to figure out how to be competitave (if that is what ya are there for) so get working!!! :):)

**P.S.> It's great to see such a large number of replies!!!

**SVXRide** I am looking forward to AutoXing with you!! :)

SVXRide 06-20-2005 09:55 PM

Chris,
Same back at you! I think your coil-overs and 5 spd will probably tip the tech folks off as to classifying you in SM :rolleyes: ;)
I honestly think Chike will be able to get into GS without any hassle - there isn't anything obviously out of bounds with his car - unless you're counting wheel revolutions you won't be able to tell he doesn't have the stock gears :cool:
I just bought another set of RX-7 rims, so maybe I'll bring another set of "sticky tires" for folks to try out (I'll probably drive up with the Hoosiers already mounted - it just better not rain!!! :eek: )
-Bill ("Bill Stock" and proud of it! :D )
p.s. Okay, Tom, bring that s/c beast of your's out of the wilderness!!

In Pittsburgh last year they just ran non turboed, turboed classes. Then just gave out prizes for the fasted overall time no pax.

I think we'll run ours in stock along side Bill :eek: .

Chiketkd get a helmet off Ebay! You'll pay $50 or so for a new M2000 certified that'll last ya 5 years! Might even find a M2005 on there.

I believe the event was free for us last year.

Figured we could do that at Cumberland in a month. ;) It'll even have an awd tranny in it by then provided I ever get around to getting it out of the truck.
