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.”

Shell 04


OntheNet is a SE Qld based company, and they have come to the rescue of the WRX Club in the way of website and database hosting.

The WRX Club of Qld is grateful to Paul and his team and can definitely recommend them as a one stop shop solution for all things internet related.

Below are some basic information on the company, but for the full experience please visit Click Here or call on 07 5553 9222

Steve Faulks
WRX Webmaster.

Executive Brief

OntheNet was established at the Bond University Research Park in January 1995, becoming the first Internet Service Provider on the Gold Coast. The privately owned Australian business is satisfying the needs of the largest organisations and the most technically demanding clients in the region. OntheNet is the most experienced, most qualified local Internet Service Provider that assists businesses to define their Internet connection strategies. The company has grown to now offer a broad range of Internet Access and Internet Presence services.

Services & Technical Aspects

The range of services currently include:

Connectivity Services, such as Broadband ADSL, Fibre as well as ISDN, dialup modem and permanent modem.
Hosting Services, including domain, mail and web hosting as well as colocation.
Consultancy Services, such as Mail Server configuration, Security Audits and Firewall Solutions.
There is a large ongoing investment in the highest standard hardware and networking components implemented by OntheNet. For example, there are multiple connections to some of the largest Australian Internet backbones of Connect.com (AAPT), Telstra and others as well as peering points such as PIPE networks. This level of performance and redundancy is simply not offered by any other local (or national) Internet Service Provider on the Gold Coast.

OntheNet is the first Queensland-based company to install Broadband ADSL Infrastructure into telephone exchanges. This infrastructure allows OntheNet substantial control and management of the broadband services, and therefore provides greater speed and reliability to its customers.

On the hardware side there are powerful Intel based servers and CISCO hardware all contributing to a network that provides the best possible performance.

With equal importance, OntheNet have planned and catered for:

Hardware redundancy - spare routers and servers are readily available.
Nightly data backup - to high capacity tape devices.
Power outages - via several UPS (battery powered Uninterruptible Power Supplies) and our own generators.
Security systems - to keep your data private,
Stability - e.g., separate dual air conditioning systems to our data centre , 24*7 monitoring systems to pager, etc.
These technical aspects combine to ensure the company's customers have consistent and reliable connectivity to the Internet. The contribution required here should not be underestimated as OntheNet's role reflects upon the corporate image of its clients in any and all electronic communications they might have.

OntheNet treat this responsibility very seriously.

Hosting Services

OntheNet provides "a-la-carte" pricing so you only pay for what you need. The Domain and Web Hosting Order Forms include all pricing details for each product and are available here.

VStrata Virtual Private Servers

OntheNet now offer VStrata Virtual Private Servers. This product fills the gap between Shared Web Hosting (see above) and Co-location of customers servers in our Data Centre (see below). Leveraging the latest cloud computing software and enterprise hardware VStrata will allow many more business customers to centralise and share information without the huge upfront capital cost previously required

Call for more information or visit Click Here for further detail.

Data Centre / Co-Location Hosting Services

Does your highly important server hardware need a more appropriate environment? Often, trying to establish that environment in-house proves very expensive to due to the need for reliable, high speed Internet links and redundancy. The OntheNet Data Centre already has all the redundancy mechanisms in place. ie. bandwidth & switching, power, air conditioning, fire protection, etc. The OntheNet network also caters well for sudden large bursts in bandwidth and rapid growth generally.

August's Feature Car: 81TTN

15 Aug : 16:54
 None    Misc

Feature81ttn1 Feature81ttn2

81TTN started life when i picked her up off the showroom floor from Subaru in 2004. She has since been sold, and then bought again, then driven as a street car, then stripped and used as a race car.

To read the entire development story please log into the forum and read all the finer details.

81TTN and Steve are regulars at tracks in South East Queensland, from QR and Lakeside Park, to Mount Cotton and Noosa hill climbs to street sprints.

With a standard engine, turbo and drive train 81TTn returned some very good results throughout 2009 and 2010 including
2009 Time Attack AWD - First Place
2009 Interclub Challenge Drivers Champion - First Place Outright
2009 Queensland Challenge - Third in Class
2010 Winter Dam Challenge - First Place Outright
2010 Queensland Challenge - First Place Outright
2010 Time Attack AWD (QR Series) - First Place
2010 Time Attack AWD (Lakeside Series) - Third Place
2010 Ironman Weekend - First Place Outright
2010 MG Noosa Hill Climb - Third in Class

During the first half of the year, Steve did a lot of investigation into the setup and turbos and decided to convert the standard VF35 setup to a complete Twin Scroll TD05 20G setup. Unfortunately the expected power gains were nowhere to be seen, so the development continues.
This year has resulted in a lot less track time, but 81TTN still manages to be first in class at the mount cotton hill climb series and is currently place 2nd on the WRX Motorsport cup for the year.
