Going to Meremere Dragway tomorrow...to RACE!

9 posts in this topic

So, it's my birthday tomorrow, and I want to go drag racing! I'm heading to Meremere Dragway with the family in the Legacy.

 

I'd like to take it down the track a few times...to have some fun with the family, and get a starting performance base before the fixes and modifications start.

 

Will I need a helmet? Will I have to prep the car to pass a safety inspection there? Being an automatic, what RPM should I launch with the foot brake, and at what RPM should I be shifting?

 

Also, is anyone else going? Do you want to meet up?

 

Thanks!

 

Greg

I will also post some pics, and timeslips for the day. Does anyone have a guess to what my best time will be for the day?

 

It's a bone stock '03 Legacy GT-B e-tune with 250k on it.

Considering you reckon it isn't quite working as it should and you hardly know the car I'll go with 15.5

Wow @Joker...thats a pretty specific guess! 

 

Let's get some bets going! For something from the forum merchendise? Or is that not allowed?

 

@Andy_Mac Hmm... 15.5... minutes?  ;)

@pedro I'm pretty comfortable around cars...and have been doing my own work for years. Now mix that with being a horsepower nut, and a "Crazy Canuck" (a typical Canadian)... hell ya! I'll take it for a rip!

Well, it's a late morning start...so I won't make it for 12pm cut off to race. Next time. Heading out now... I'll still get some pics.

Didn't get to the races yesterday. We got out late, decided to have lunch in Onehunga, which would have only given us 1.5 of race time...not worth the $25 entrance fee and $80 to race. So we walked around downtown Auckland, had a cider at Mezzier, my wife got injured by some idiot skateboarder that plowed through a group of us crossing at a traffic light(that's a whole other post), and ended up at the "Mexico" restaurant for dinner(which I highly recommend!). Great taquilla there! Had a great time!

      Can someone please give some advice here.?
      I have just bought a 2013 legacy.  BR?
      Of course the stereo is all in Japanese and annoys me no end!. I cant seem to find any options that change the language...
      Looking for an upgrade to the stereo.  Problem is, every place seems to think that I DONT have a 2013 legacy.
      My dash looks like this (although mines RHD...)

       
      Although a different stereo.  Mine has the original MacIntosh stereo, its the same layout.  Mine has the larger screen for GPS at the top and the head unit underneath.
      Every place seems to think I should have the stereo at the top with a pocket underneath.
       
      Like this.

       
      Even the user manual doesn't seem to think I have the right layout!!!
       
      So, first question..Why is mine different?
       
      Second question...Does anyone know of where to get a stereo that will fit my layout?  (like the top picture).  I can only find ones that will fit the lower pic layout, and they don't seem interchangeable looking at them.
      I tried ordering one of the Tesla style ones from AliExpress and despite my asking "do you have a right hand drive version?" asked several times they sent a left hand drive one telling me I just need a professional to install it.  It would be awesome in RHD, but cutting the plastic to fit it, is going to leave gaps..

      Hi,
       
      Legacy 2005 BPE
       
      Can you please help me identify this part on the suspension of my Legacy? Is it the Sway bar bush?
       
      Can I replace this myself?

      so recently purchased a 2001 legacy ej20 e-tune 5spd manual and everything was running fine until a couple days ago. 1- check engine light has been coming on then turning off at random times  mainly when idling for longer period of time . 2- so car drives fine and normal with no problem until you want to hit accelerator and take it up to around 4k rpm then it starts to shake and just refuses to climb any further until you change up a gear then does the same thing until your in 5th. once in 5th if you just slowly increase  the acceleration then it will pick up speed and cruise fine at 150khms (not actual cruising speed I follow the rules ha sometimes) . no funny sounds no leaks I can see and no other problems. just scaring me bit as to hoping its nothing major. I'm thinking maybe fuel related and not turbo related but would love some input. located in Otago and am keen to find good reliable Subaru techs for future mods if anyone has some recommendations .
