I have what I believe to be an RX turbo 4 door, 1985. It has been sideswiped enough to not be feasable to repair to original condition, and has over 200k. I would like to use as a non street legal (fun only) rally car. What can be done to get most power, traction, best off road suspension (for big jumps etc..) I think I wiil get my compressor out and paint the car blue and the rims gold, maybe make a big aluminum wing for the back. Any advise will be greatly appreciated!!!

Actually, part of the reason I posted was so he would see my sig.. combined with 88's sig and Brads sig, he should be able to get enough Ideas to keep him too busy to put one of those nasty ass traveties on his car..:lol:

AHHHH!! thousand darts your way! (unless you're sarcastic, i can't tell by your font :lol: )

I don't remember whose sig it was that said: "it's more fun to drive a slow car fast than a fast car slow"

here's my 2-policy take on the old subie style, and call me naive, i don't care, but i grew up in a scooby shop:
1. We go for head turning-ugly, lifted, loud, or otherwise, but not riced
2. We pride in overcoming physical obstacles: under-budget, large rocks, steep hills, pedestrians (ha!) or mud pits

Import tuning doesn't just mean ricey wings and hood scoops with useless exausght tips. It means getting the most for your money, and MAking your car fast, not just look good and be a bit fast like those ricer civics. I must say, that hood scoop looks awefull on a stock rx hood, but I have to thank you for putting it there, because I was thinking of getting one for mine (to cool the intercooler I am putting on, of course) and now know I will have to get a whole hood to make it look decent.
