    Hey you guys should donate all those 08 STI internals to me so I can do my 09 Forester swap.

    Gotta wonder why Subaru doesn't just send these guys a bare chassis in the first place. I mean, Subaru doesn't have the hookup on half built STis for their own rally team?

    seeing how it took them an hour to take the plastic seat covers off I could imagine things were done a bit slower then need be

    one guy, knowing what he's doing, 40 hour weeks, that'd take almost half a year. that's crazy

    yes. Good eye. The car was not yet available in the USA so we were sent a RHD car straight from Japan.

    After 800 hours I'm up to the part where you're supposed to paint the car after cage/seam weld mods. I'm definitely doing something wrong!!

    They strip it so much it's a wonder they just don't build a car from scratch.

    8 men
    800 hours
    Considering they're paid 25$/hour, that's 160k$ worth of labour lol.

    Car is probably worth 350k$ 😮

    So you pointed out that starting with an already street legal and registered car is easier and less time consuming than starting from scratch. What I want to know is why you chose and STI? Since the STI is built off the same platform as the base impreza and you took everything off the STI that made it an STI, wouldn't it make more sense to start off with the cheaper car?

    obviously, you are his massive fan ignoring the truth.

    I have just put "travis pastrana rally crashes" into google and results speak for themself (there is fisrt page full with videos of him crashing cars into everything.

    Admit he is terrible rally driver. I am not saying he is terrible at doing all things – he can ride a bike but he is he awful when he is driving anything else.
