Project Blackout – Whiteline ALK, MSI Engine Mounts – CSCS Round 1 & 2 Recap

We are continuing to update our shop’s blog post. We want to make sure we can tell you guys the inside scoop of our race cars.
Our last post saw the car get some new brakes and wheels. Next, we’ll go into some of the darker hours where parts gave up.

The car withstood unbelievable amounts of stress, but eventually some parts were bound to break. The Whiteline ALK gave up after some numerous hard driving. Lots of curb jumping meant the bushing couldn’t withstand the abuse.  Whiteline stands behind their products 100% and warrantied the ALK kit with not only a free part, but an upgraded Race spec kit. Mmmm yes Race spec, we all like those two words together. We had them installed before the next test session. Below you can see the old failed ALK vs the new unit.

Project BlueSky – Supercharged BRZ Part 4 – More Power!

Welcome to the beginning of the end for Project BlueSky, where we will talk about what we all love to talk about, power! However, before we get on to power, let’s talk about how the car will handle this newly unlocked power via the Kraftwerks Supercharger kit. With Project BlueSky we decided to upgrade the clutch and flywheel system to the Clutchmasters FX300 kit. The owner of this car intended this car to be a fun, fast and reliable street car first and foremost. It was not going to see trackday after trackday and with that in mind we chose the FX300 kit – a kit designed for a medium powered car that will see most of its life on the street. The kit offers slightly heavier clutch operation while enhancing the reliability, longevity and clutch pedal feel. Let’s take a look at the Clutchmasters FX300 kit.

Below you will see from top to bottom the steel back segmented Kevlar disc mated to the flywheel,

Dyno Number – 2002 Subaru WRX – Version 8 Engine Swap + Stage 2

Here we have a 2002 Subaru WRX with a JDM Version 8 swap in it running the factory twin scroll turbo. We installed Tomei Equal Length Headers and a Tomei downpipe connected to a cat-back system. The power numbers aren’t jaw dropping but this set-up is quite quick and having such a wide rev range makes it really easy to drive on track.

2015 WRX Project Northstar – CSCS Round #3 iCar Mirabel, Quebec

Just back from my journey out to Quebec for the third round of CSCS hosted at iCar in Mirabel Quebec. This is the first time attack event CSCS has done outside of Ontario and we hope this will continue in the future. It was exciting but also intimidating going to compete at a track I had never been to, for that matter none of the competitors in Street AWD had either. But then again that’s what makes racing such a fun sport to compete in, the unknown and challenge. @NBK; and I cruised down from the shop to Montreal (Laval area) Saturday so we could be well rested. Northstar ended up getting around 8.74 calculated fuel economy cruising at 120KM/h, that’s loaded up with helmets, full set of wheels/tires and some other miscellaneous things. Pretty damn good and I’ll likely be trying to improve upon this with some dedicated cruise fine tuning with OnPoint Dyno.

2015 WRX Project Northstar – CSCS Round #2 Recap

Slightly behind schedule but wanted to provide an update on the car for it’s last track outing which was for Round #2 of the CSCS Time Attack series. This round was held at Toronto Motorsports Park in Cayuga, Ontario and I am very familiar with this track having turned quite a number of laps on my race bike and in different cars. Unlike DDT, which is very much a drivers track, TMP is much simpler which usually makes the competition much tighter. It also definitely helps to have decent power here as the 2 straights can be a huge difference and to put in perspective on a previous date Project Blackout was hitting 192KM/h and Northstar is only capable of 168-170KM/h. The only major change I made for this event was to put on a set of Hankook RS-3 Tires in a 245/40R17 size which are the staple for most street class competitors.
