Hey, no shame. I drive a 2001 Subaru Outback most days. Back before that, when I had to rent cars while my truck was down, I used to drive a Chevy Aveo. Fuuuuuuuu.....that thing. Did the job though. Laughs from the ladies on the road really were a slap in the face though. Lol.

Shoot. Got 35 mpg on the way back from Austin in my Subi, this past weekend. No complaints here.

Nice! haha. I have two 12's in the hatch of my Accent so when people laugh I just play up some dubstep and rattle the windows in their car haha. I bought my Accent at the start of my senior year of high school for $2K and still have it around.

At least a Outback is a better choice. An Accent is straight up a chick car. haha Although the newer ones are even more so... Can't complain about 35+mpg though! 92 ponies of fury man Probably a whopping 70-75hp at the front tires. haha

I think I spent too much time in this thread yesterday... I had a dream that I was hanging out with you Tor (I don't even know what you look like haha) and we randomly decided we were going to put a Turbo on my Accent cuz it was going to be simple and cheap. We didn't get too far into the install process before I woke up though. haha It was interesting.

Lots of clubs, food, and hangouts there.
Yes... Washington St. my bad.
Rich said this would be a good spot to choose for a meet - lots of mid-day parking easy access too.
Thoughts?

Location wise, it is pretty neutral, as far as the direction that you guys are headed, since it is on I-10 near 45. It is concidered a higher end part of town, so prices will reflect, and older but revitalized. Depending on where you want to go, parking may or may not be tight.

The latest mod to correct some camber and caster.











With the aid of my good friend Lucario Runner, we were able to knock them out relatively easy.

The instructions said that "Position D" should return you to factory caster if you have 2"-3" of lift. Considering that I was just the opposite, I figured that it should work the same for my application. Quite honestly it did. Just barely pulls to the right, but nothing bad. I will say, that it handles soooo much better now. Very well planted compared to before, where it felt like it was on skates.
