October Feature Car: Adam Schlecht's GC8

06 Oct : 14:07
 None    Misc

Adam picked up this clean GC8 7 years ago and as the second person to have the pleasure of owning it. The car rolled into Adam’s garage with very mild mods consisting of a set of King low springs and a cd player.

Adam had this to say about his ride:

“Since I’ve owned the car I have slowly replaced parts as they've broken to performance parts when possible. First on the list was tint for the windows. Then a short shift kit. After that I had the clutch replaced along with adding a 22mm rear sway bar.”
“About 5 years on and I had a slight miss hap with a sign post which made me put the car into the panel shop for a new paint job and replaced the damaged panel. While it was in the paint shop, I had a roof scoop fitted, 02 sti bonnet scoop and a 22b style wing. Whilst all this was being done, I had bought some STI 18" wheels to be fitted along with a 6 point roll cage.”

“Just before going into the paint shop I fitted 02 STI seats, an in car UHF, custom pod for rally lights, custom stereo, front strut brace, Bilstien STI Prodrive shocks, CAI, alarm, kill switches (2 of, just to make sure no one could steal it), and a UNI chip (running on 18 psi) making approximately 160kw atw's.”

“The car has been used for autocross/dirt sprint days plus some track days, driver training days, and has also seen the 1/4 mile. My best time for a 1/4 mile is 13.3 with the stock turbo, stock top mount and stock internals.”

“The car is pretty much finished on the outside, it's now just down to doing the gear box to suit a new motor I hope to build. The car will eventually become a pure track car. I’m aiming to build a new motor to make around the 600hp mark. It will be purely for tarmac track days. Only time it will see dirt is for fun times on infrequent occasions.”

“Total cost of build to date is approximately $70k which includes the purchasing of the car, 2 clutches, one gear box, 2 full sets of rims, custom stereo, roll cage, new paint work, and body styling bits.”

“Many thanks must go to Racing Evolution in Ipswich for doing the gear box recently, plus Michael from Scorpion Subaru for all his wealth of information to guide me along the way. CnJ for dyno tunes and lastly my fiancé for never allowing me to sell my car. Even when times were tough, and I thought I’d have to get rid of it to make ends meet, she refused to let me part with it.”

Nev Scott came away from the weekend with the fastest lap at the 2012 Japanese Nationals run by Queensland Time Attack at Queensland Raceway.

Nev pulled out an impressive 55.14 around the Clubman circuit - this was good enough for 1st in the AWD class and 1st outright in the morning.

Unfortunately, Nev could not back up his good morning form in the one lap shootout for the $1000 which went to the Mighty Mouse CRX with a very very impressive lap

Fulcrum Performance STi starts its journey to World Time Attack 2012

Although WTAC 2012 is Stephen’s first year at Eastern Creek, this Brisbane based project manager is not new to the Time Attack concept taking his standard Impreza to the front in back to back wins of the 2009 and 2010 for the Queensland AWD Time Attack series run at Queensland Raceway. The standard STi block finally gave up after the years of punishment in September 2011 which started the WTAC 2012 journey.

Almost the fairy tail start to Dave Scott's ATRC year

The AASA Australian Tarmac Rally Championship Round 1 report from Dave Scott


I hadn't been in my race car for two years and I had really itchy feet, I needed that adrenalin fix of going flat-out on winding country roads. Peter Washington from Mountain Motorsports rang to see if I was going to run the Australian Tarmac Rally Championship this year and I knew that's what I needed, but there was a problem - I had no money! A quick budget showed a season would cost $lots plus some. I put together a proposal with ProCam, a professional television production company, to air the season on TV in four documentaries. I chased up some people who have supported me in the past and added a few new allies. I had a lot of support from Fulcrum Suspensions, PerFOURmance Motorsport, Mountain Motorsports, and ProCam.
