The other soobs that do surprisingly well are the Justy's. With a competent driver, and pushing 63 HP at only 1700 lbs, the 4WD models tear the track apart. It's really amazing how well they do for their small stature.

The Scandinavian Flick is my favorite trick.
Check out my web site for my mods. click on my name and goto home page.
sorry don't know URL of hand.
If you rally around here in the summer make sure you have something to put out a fire with. I have never had to put out my own fire but,I put out other peoples fires . You will have to pay to put it out if you start it. Could be hundreds of thousand of dollars or more. That's why I'm putting on a spark arrestor. I also carry a bunch of stuff to get me out of trouble. H20,comealong & tow straps, full size spare , maps , ect. Note. one hour of driving equals about one day of hiking. Something to keep in mind.

check out the car more at the site on my signature. we do the Top Half rally series in New Zealand. Have had a few engine failures in the last year, but next weekend (9-11th July) we are off to Rotorua for the Rally of Rotorua, which is a round of the APRC series, and the roads we are rallying on are the old stages from Rally New Zealand back in the mid 90's. Can't wait to get out and give it a nudge on the gravel

parts are getting hard to come by over here too, the rims are like hens' teeth and I rue the day if I do some damage to them. there are still some floating about, but getting people to part with them is the hard part...

I have ea81T Leone rally car bit older than yours but great fun! I have had alot of work done to it, just got a LSD diff to go.
Looks like you are doing the Mainland Rallies. I was hoping to do them but have ran outta money. Still should hoping to do the Nelson and Westland rallies.

I am in auckland and do the top half series, but will be in nelson as I manage a team in the NZRC, so if you are there, look for Turner Motorsport, and come and catch up.

Also...where on earth did you find those WRC alloys??? *droooool*

1 - Uprated oil pressure / pump . seems like a good idea do you have more details ?
2 - Legacy brakes . Did you need to modify or fabricate something to make them work or is a staight bolt on ?
other Legacy parts . It looks like legacys and EA-82 bodies have the same mounting set up for the top of the front strut but, not the same on the steering knuckle. I wonder if the axles are interchangeable or compatable.
