Tarmac Ready … almost

So the other weekend we got together for a good half day to work on the car. Pulling the suspension to clean the struts, realigning the struts to allow for the wider tires, all that fun stuff. While we had the car in the garage and up on jack stands we thought it’d be a smart idea to flush out some fluids, change the oil and other “regular” car things.

After that we buttoned her all up and took her for a test drive. She handles like a proper STi again. I have been driving her with soft, squishy and STUDDED tires for the last 3 months whenever I took her out. I almost forgot what a tarmac setup feels like. I managed to score a great deal on the tires that we will be using for the next event and subsequent hill climbs this year. They should be arriving here this week. I guess the Easter Bunny will be dropping them off with all the candy!
