I'm pretty sure he has one in the front, dont know about the rear.
He also has adjustable front coil overs, it just might need to be stiffened.

if you want to race out there you have to take the one day high proformance driving school, this is what i was doing in this video.
this is ~$500 if you use your own car.

the next time you go out you have to pay for an instructor for the first 50 mins...
this is ~$250 + $150 for the instructor.

then you are good to go whenever they have an open track day.
this is ~$250 again for the all day class slightly less for just the afternoon.

yep $260 for the all day laping, but seat time $ for $ its not all that bad, beats paying $35 for the drag strip and only getting a half dozen runs for a total of 2.5 mins of running...

thats $14 a min for the strip
and less than $1 a min for the road course.

but your right its not cheep last time i spent $85 on gas alone...

but hey i only do it once or twice a year so what the hey...

heh ... looks like there were some pretty serious machines out there (I belive I spotted at least one Lotus and one Porsche in the crowd) - your Subie was doing a great job keeping them in check!

doesn't look that fast to be honest, but I know better ;) and I would still LOVE to do that one day.

How do you guys spot that he needs strut bars? To me the car holds the road really good.

yeah that is the thing i hate about video...

but i can tell you that on the long stright strech i top out the car when the fuel cuts. ( i have herd that the Z4 ecu cuts fuel at 118 MPH)

other cars are topping out at 150 or higher...

Thats great, I wish my car was trackworthy. Do you mind my asking as to which car your sidemarkers are from, and were they hard to install? I love sidemarkers, dunno why just do.
