All Purpose STi: Just Right
We all make tweaks to our cars but some guys seem to meticulously adjust their car until it is perfect, just the way they like it: Richard Fisher is one of these owners. He owns a Subaru STi out of the Chicago area that shows you can have both function and form all wrapped up into one car.
Originally, Richard started building this car to just be an awesome street car; something that could be driven daily and brought anywhere. As time went on though, his tastes and plans for his STi changed. That’s when he decided he wanted to make this car primarily a track/weekend machine.
On his way to accomplishing this he wanted to make sure he didn’t go overkill with the build. This was a challenge because he wanted to be able to have that function and form that I mentioned earlier. Here he decided to go with RobiSpec KW V3 coilovers due to their great ride but also offered everything you desired performance wise from a coilover. Wheels were also a challenge as Richard went through 4 sets of CE28n Volk’s before finding the perfect specs. After all the adjustments, he was left with a car that tucks tire but doesn’t have any issues with rubbing tire.
Richard is only half done with what he wants to do but he is off to a great start so far. Plans include motor work along some other small mods around the car. So make sure to keep an eye out for Richard and his STi if you are in the Chicago area no matter the weather or the season.
