The Mt. Hood rally is a great event, It's a one day event with 3 roads looped a couple times for 7 stages.

This was my third and most challenging event for a couple reasons. The roads are very narrow and we had to make our own notes for them. Previous events I did the notes were professionally made and available to the racers for a small fee. The roads at my first two events were wider and more forgiving to errors.

On the second to last stage, coming out of a L5 long I went wide into a R4 over crest(which I should have had as a R3 over crest, whoops).

Anyway, here is what happens when you are a novice driver with novice notes chasing open class turbo cars with 100 more HP(I was pretty close to a couple of them!) :

I'm up top, those are other racers (since I blocked the road)

That's no good. The damage doesn't look too bad, how'd the cage/chassis handle it?

Cage handled it like a boss. No deformation at all A-arm mounting points, those are ripped. Eff.

No!!!!!!! Glad you're okay though.

I stumbled across your EG33 into the Legacy on youtube a while back and watched all your rally vids. Very inspiring, I definitely want to swap in an EG33 into my Legacy if I can get my hands on an SVX.

I really like the H6, it's difficult jumping into my vf39 powered wagon after driving the rally car. Feels like I have to wait forever for power. Keep your eyes peeled for the EG and grab one if you can. It's too fun. Plus you end up sounding like a Porsche. It's a total win/win!

Really sucks man, I love your car!

Did you ever do any kind of build thread detailing the wiring needed to swap in the 3.3? I'm about to embark on this swap myself and need to figure out the details lol. I've found a lot of info so far but the more the better! :D

I didn't.

Between the FSMs pdfs and this thread: http://www.dirtyimpreza.com/forums/show ... hp?t=12965 I was able to get it done.

I say start ripping into it, if you have q's the email button under my user name goes direct to my personal email. Don't hesitate to use it.
