hey brian, you should roll down here on a day trip in a couple months after it rains, and see how your ea81 does...
Roo - what kind of rims will you be selling? I'm looking for a set of black or white 6-lug steel alloys, the standard American Racing off-road rim. 15X8
but yo, It'll be awhile before I'll have my rig ready ...but when it is, it'll be schweet!

i'm doing a complete revamp of my car and a lot larger wheels and tires are coming with it.
Posted 29 August 2003 - 09:21 PM
When are you moving down?
One suggestion if I may: "Stompers" sounds a tad Jeepish to me. Are you open to talking about that at all?

i picked west coast so that i can include all my friends in washington and every one on this side of the country.
the reason i picked stompers is because if i remember right, the little subaru toys ken and eric have are called stompers. so i was keeping it subaru. but if we get a few together and they don't like that name for the club i'm starting. then yes it can be negotiated. with that name i was making sure, i wasn't illudinng to it being only one style of subaru. and open to other makes and models if need be.
trust me i knowwhat a stock suby and no fear can do. i've been there. what are you doing to your car storm trooper. i'd tell you what i'm doing to mine. but at the moment i'm keeping it on the DL. till it comes out of the shop.
i'be driving down on the 22nd of sept and arriving at yuma on the 24th

Project not started yet, but it will involve gutting the 1600, and dropping in an EA-81 decked out for max breathing and low-end. Toyota 6-lug w/ black Pacer rims wrapped in 30"+ mudders is my goal...I need some serious help on suspension mods, as I am clueless, maybe you could give me some advice. I am looking for something a bit x-treme as this project car will never see the concrete.
Posted 01 September 2003 - 04:16 PM
as for suspension mods....
i'm having someone redo my suspension a few inches taller and 33" wrangler M/TR tires on 15x8 6 lug rims. have someone who is very knowledgeable about fabrication help or build your suspension otherwise it's not worth it. on subaru's i don't like to personally fabricate the suspension. mainly because it's blocks and supports. everything else to the car i can help you fab or do.

basically what i'm doing is having it lifted high enough that when i suck the tranny and engine back in the original postion against the body. i can fit another rear diff under the tranny. i'll have that mounted where the tranny would be if it was a regular body lift. that way no drive axle angle is changed. plus i can change out the gear ratios to a 4.11 or 4.44 front and rear. then for power distrubition. it'll come out of the rear of the tranny onto a short driveline to a datsun t-case. then from there to the front and rear diffs. wa la 2 low ranges and a final crawl between 50:1 and 65:1.
it'll be about a 10 to 12 inch lift. similar to mudrat's beast that he took to the rubicon. you could do it with a 6" lift like lumpycam did.
then i'm going to an ea-81 motor and power steering. and 31 to 33 inch tall wrangler MT/R tires.

Jared, I think the Subaru communtiy can have a great influence in this section of the country, as there are many off-road enthusiasts in cali, and so much good roading to do around here..plus with the economy the way it is, I wouldn't be surprised to see a few heads ditch the Jeeps for a old beater hatch!!
Anyway...keep up the motivation, and if you need any help getting this club together, I'm more than willing to make it a reality...
Posted 03 September 2003 - 06:21 PM
personally i can't wait to start coaming so cal and arizona. i have a guide book for both areas with lots of trails (150) from easy to extreme. so we will be running like mad when i get down there before and after my new lift.
But after i get my big lift i think i won't be sanding too much do to being to top heavy!! and the lower gears for crawlin'
