    Hey guys, kinda new here, although i've been registerd for a while. Owned my Subie for a year or so now. And finally converted it to RWD.

    I'm part of F6Squared, you may rember Ryan, with the S14? F6squared

    Anyway, thought i would throw some pics up of the subie, and hopefully get to know some of you guys, as I've just moved down to Portsmouth, and seen a few local S13's and 14's around.

    Thanks guys. Suprisingly well, the rear diff isn't welded, so in hot conditions its hard to keep the rear out, but days like to day its awesome fun, very controlable, but I'm still learning. The only downside I can see on the subie is the steering rack hassnt got great angle, so that's something ill look in to down the line. Its still my daily, but once I'm a bit more financially stable, ill be getting more serious :)

    Thanks man, some guy I met in a Chinese in Havent, told me about that forum, he was telling me about his r32, real nice guy, but I wassnt sure of the web adress, so ill get on that.

    As for the conversion,it was super simple and super cheap. Just a case of striping and welding the centre diff. Just split the box, drop the diff out, take all the gears out, weld the plates up, and put it back. Then if you fancy you can take the front shafts out, leaving the cvs in to stop the hub collapsing, and remove the front diff, to save the extra wieght as its no longer needed. All in a days work at the most.

    I'll be honest, my original intentions for rwd were just so I could run it lower with out poping cvs and so I could run staggerd fitment, going sideways was just a bonus.

    I'll chuck some pics up of the conversion somepoint soon, if you guys are intrested, and some recent ones of the car in detail, just as soon as I get some time.

    Thanks for all the positive feedback, really apreciate it :)

    Not normally a fan of Subarus but that's pretty damn cool.


    Prefer it to be honest.
