Example of bad autocross form ( pic.)

It doesn't FEEL like it's leaning that much!
Car has discs and an XT swaybar, 15" pugs with old BFG's, engine mods.
Picture is a bit deceptive. This is the turn around after a longish straight. About 40mph, Trail braking to try to get the car set for corner exit.
Bad weight transfer.
Not smooth. BAD, BAD Subaru driver!
This is the only picture of this car autocrossing that is posted right now on the web. I do have better examples of how I'm supposed to do it. Even a couple short movies.
Just thought I'd share.
C'mon with the comments, I can take it!

If I was still autocrossing this GL, I would lower it two inches, and put 205/50 15's on the Pugs. Victoracers more than likely.
More toe out in the rear might help too. ROTATE NOW! twitchy on the street though.
Bought the RX for this kind of stuff. GL might get a fresh engine, That's about it. It has been relegated to a back-up, nothing else will start, wait until it snows, make a dead spot in the yard car.
Edit for Allturken . When you drove past Roanoke on I81, if you looked into the distance it flanks the valley on the opposite side of I81.
Wanted to get the GR2's for it but they are not adjustable for height. i need that for the snowtires. So, to answer your question.
Old, stock, worn out. That might account for the attitude of the car in the pic, EH?

Let's see some pics of the RX, too!
BTW I gotta go with Caleb on the recommendation for the stock wheels on that hatch if you decide to autocross it anymore. The bigger ones do look better of course, but those little 13's will perform a ton better for that kind of driving.

Form doesn't look that bad to me. You'll see foto's of VW's with that inside rear tire WAY off the ground when pushed to the limit.
How was the lap time??

I assume 2wd because of pavement.............
anyone ever tried an E-brake turn? I realize that they're up front but curious as to what will happen if ya give it a pull in a tight corner...
82 GLW (gettin' ready for Rally X)

car was a peice except for 'gathered' parts collection in which all are a straight bolt into my 82 GLW....once the EA81T & is trouble shooted (pulling water into pistons, we think its the intake manifold)
My freshly painted 82 GLW has been embroiled is crazy emissions war in which has sucked all my time and resources to keep legal in order to do 'the manipulation'....everything is sitting on the shelf 'waiting'..
When manipulation takes place...it will be documented for all to review
BTW- He took the trailing arms and the rear sway bar from the doner car (XT6? i think)
just have to get my tags first...........
