Always a goodie for car enthusiasts when new parts get announced, GrimmSpeed is launching quite a few new pieces for Subaru fans today. Check out the info below for more details and ordering information.
Subaru Oil Cap
Sleek and arriving in 4 colors, it replaces the OEM cap with a touch of style, coming in silver, blue, red or black. Performance gains? None really, unless your current cap is broken, in which case it’s a solid replacement with some style. The notes include that it allows room for intercooler piping or other cables around it. Perfect for the holidays coming up.
The brace is finally here for 05-08 Legacy models without the VDC equipped, it looks beefy and for $99 it’s not a bad price when it comes to reducing firewall flex when hard braking comes into play. Check out this page by GrimmSpeed for some clarification on how it reduces that flex.
A final handy item from their release list is the front license delete plate, helping polish up those mounting holes on the stock bumper. A bit pricey for my taste but for the Subaru fanatic in your life it might be a good present to grab before they buy it.
Subaru and Rally fans all over are invited to a special conference call with Subaru Rally Team USA drivers Travis Pastrana and Dave Mirra. The call takes place on Monday July 26th at 3PM Pacific / 6PM Eastern, on the call fans will be able to ask questions to Travis Pastrana and Dave Mirra about their prep and plans for the X Games. For those that may run out of ideas for questions they’ll also be answering social questions about the sport and the new 2011 Impreza WRX/STi.
“Travis and Dave love their fans and this is a unique way to connect with them on a more personal level,” said Todd Lawrence, promotions and sponsorship manager, Subaru of America, Inc. “They are looking forward to talking about what’s going on with the Subaru Rally Team and are eager to drive their Subaru Impreza WRX STI rally cars at X Games in Rally Car Racing and the all-new SuperRally event.”
Both drivers will be putting it on the line at the X Games on July 31st starting at 1PM Pacific / 4PM Eastern.
Rare is it we get to see dedicated rally racers taking to the digital realm, sure they sim their own stuff on the side but it’s always a treat to actually see it. Codemasters broke out some DiRT 2 footage of Ken Block having a ball on a machine I think many of us wish we could try one day.
