New WRX 4-Door and 5-Door Models Adopt Wide-Body Design

Wider Track and Tires Enhance Grip

Subaru of America, Inc. today introduced the new 2011 Subaru Impreza WRX models, which now use a wide-body design like the brand’s iconic WRX STI® performance flagship model. The wider body designs give the 2011 WRX an aggressive road presence and also allow wider track dimensions.

An approximately 1.5-inch increase in front and rear track, firmer rear subframe bushings and wider 17-inch wheels and tires deliver improved grip in the 2011 WRX. The standard wheels are now 17 x 8-in. vs. 17 x 7-in. in the 2010 model, and tire size is now 235/45R17 vs. 225/45R17.

Russ bought the STi

Posted: March 23, 2010 in New Owners

As the plan went, our friend Russ was going to order an STi SE and hope it came in.  With 305 HP, and a platform as stiff as a board, when I took Russ and his wife for a ride around the block in our blue one, the infection set in.  Monday, he came in and took it home as his.  I’m sure we will be seeing him at and the next meetup.

We were able to get our hands on one of the last STi SEs on the ground anywhere right now.  It’s pretty amazing.  I took my buddy Russ for a ride in it today, and as a former EVO driver, he was very impressed.  He will be ordering one.  Monday is the LAST day to order MY 2010 cars from Subaru, so get your order in right now!

STi SE on its way!

Posted: March 19, 2010 in Rants and Raves

I was told this morning that we are doing a dealer trade on a new Outback Limited.  We are sending them our Outback, they are sending us an STi SE.  All I know so far, is that its blue, and that it should be here today.

Pictures to follow? 🙂

These things are really amazing.  It’s about time we saw some JDM stuff here in North America!
