I'm assuming you keep her buckled up while making the run?

She's not a fan of the external gate on it though.

I'll strap a racing seat to my trailer and she can sit back there.

8" wide wheels with 225s is not enough.

That's a fun problem to have. Unfun solution: Turn down the boost.

why don't you just run some dot race rubber rather than bigger tires?

if I lived in CA still, I probably would. but the roads and rain are less than ideal here. maybe though. I do have backup wheels.

Yep, she's tuning. Actually she's been outside the car while the dyno operator and tuner did their thing.

On the Forester. Mega boost creep on a Forced Performance "Green" turbo running 3 inch catless. Had to go EWG.



Not as traction limited as Y8s with AWD, though I get slippage in first if I hammer it.

Y8s,
Are you running RS2s on the 6ULs?
