Anyone hear about the issues with Subaru 704 block castings? I guess they are busting at the cylinder walls like crazy! The shop told.me they source 703 castings but can't find any. The last 704 short block they did went from being built to the dyno and popped right there. Didn't even make it out of the shop... they check the pistons, rods, crank, and any area for failure but it was spontanious sidewall failure.

I guess several other people have experienced this issue as well all new 704 castings. So, since its only another 400 bucks more... I'm getting a cosworth short block ^___^ and they can beat the online price of 5390

So an extra 4-500 bucks and I totally avoid the cylinder wall crack issue with the 704 castings... shut up and take my money hopefully selling my old short block for around 650and then the old VF, walbro, and DWs for around 1000 and I'll be golden!

So I'm in need of new tires. What tires I get depends on how much money we have.

Either 500 installed for Falken Ziex ZE-512, 600 installed for Kumho Ecsta 4X KU22, or 700 installed for Hankook Ventus V12 Evo.

My dad then thinks he wants to only put two tires on, saying I have two good tires already (read: a winter tire and a $40 used piece of **** tire) and only need two..

I couldn't think of an actual response while talking over the phone.

Any photos of his 3 crashes? I'd be most interested in those. From the sounds of it the RCR team has their work cut out repairing the car. What is the extent of the damage?

FWIW I got my BFG G-force sports for almost the same price as my Ventus V12s, and I liked them way, way better.

I dunno why there's always drama between you two, but if you're trying to start trouble, take it to PM. He already posted pics of one of the crashes, so it kinda seems like you're just trying to start a **** storm.

Not sure I'd trust vinyl on wheels. Don't even know how you'd go about that, really...

I doubt it would last long. It would look good, but rip.

I was on the wrong side of the tire wall both times he clipped it.

First time he was on near-slicks and rotated the car right but had a little too much velocity, rear end clipped the tire wall. Crunched in the rear 1/4 and door. This hit was so soft I didn't know until I chimped even though I was just a few feet on the other side of the tire wall.

Damage:


In heat 3 he did the same thing, but this time after he clipped the rear it sucked the front of the car in. (This is the sequence I posted previously)

Damage:


All the damage is to the sheet metal. Bumper skin, hood, front fender, back door, rear 1/4. He finished heat 3 and continued onto the main event.

I think every car that entered that event had damage of some form. ART clipped the same corner right after RC did the first time.

The tire situation for that kind of racing is impossible. You need the grip and heat range of a road racing tire, but a slick/semislick doesn't work too well in the dirt portions. I'm going to see what I can figure out at SEMA, otherwise I'm going to start cutting up tires.

why would it rip? are you thinking because of rock chips?

Ive had plastidip on the wheels for about 3 months and it sill looks perfect. On those nissan wheels it did get a little beat up in the 4-5 months it was on there. but i think that the fact that these wheels are concave and the tires bulge slightly help protect it.

i also havent found any one on line really comment too much on it. havent looked that hard though

Weird, I last longer with condoms.

Scott: plastidip seems a lot more rock resistant than vinyl. The vinyl on my car got tears, but the plastidip was fine.

way to abort babies by wearing condoms

I saw a magazine article where a guy wrapped his rims on a miata. It looked good... he used a heat gun to make it more elastic and formed it onto the harder parts of the rim. It looked hella nice!
