Infinite Motorsports "Track Monster"

For those of you who don't know me, my name is Jake Lucas and I have been an avid Subaru fan working in the aftermarket tuning industry for about 8 years. This particular shop/track/project car makes my sixth Suby I've owned now, and I'm sad/proud to say I seem to just keep getting more fanatical and elitist with each one :clap:

On to the project! While I still have some big decisions to make concerning the ultimate plan for this car, I can list these intended goals:

>Lightweight- We're shooting for about 2600 lbs (or less?)

>Custom Parts- As much as possible, this car will be a showcase to custom designed and fabricated parts

>Potential Streetability- No trailer queen here, I'd like to drive this car to local events

>Testament to my tuning philosophy- Mother Nature makes the rules


Updates to follow, here are a few pics:

Before teardown:

Getting prepped:

It's been a long time since I've updated this thread, and for good reason. After a couple months of procrastination, progress has resumed on the car.

Here is a sneak peek-

As you can imagine, there is a LOT more to do. I'll keep everyone updated, hope you like what we're doing!

I'll get much more detail when it starts shaping up. Welding thin sheet to a thick chassis is not easy, and I'll most likely grind the welds smooth before paint. It'll look "factory". HA

ok lets talk. When the motor is out you can do something like that for me? Will I be able to keep the power steering and abs in the same spot?

and where would the fuse box mount?

Shoot me a pm with details and prices. THanks bro!
