The Struggle 2015 Vol. 7

Keep in mind that we have now changed all of our original game plans of really competing in Redline Time Attack and Global Time Attack season and are just hoping to make some events to get some testing in before Super Lap Battle, but we were still wanting to make the largest Subaru event of the year Subiefest. Subiefest is in September and at this time in the build it is end of July or beginning of August. We all of a sudden came into contact with Lost Art Liquids an e-liquids company aka subie vape madness. They wanted to come on board with our team and we were glad to have them! But this meant that we were about to have to make a few changes…. And by few I mean a lot! 

Here is how the trailer started.

So the first item on the agenda was to refresh the cars livery, I turned to Advanced Printing and Graphics (APG) to come up with a new design incorporating their logo as well as all of our other sponsors. This is an emense task and I must admit not that much fun. Along with the livery, new shirts, a canopy and then finally a trailer wrap would all need to be completed. But before the trailer could be wrapped I had to go and find one and buy it! It is still a work in progress but just like everything else we tried to make the trailer be a place where we could go to get out of the elements, store and be a home away from home. 

The trailer wrap was one of those items that just about didn’t get done… It was finished at 4:30 in the morning the day of Subiefest. Big props to the guys at APG for staying up all night long and getting it done in time so that we could rep it at the event.   
Now along with the trailer they were also taking the time to make our new crew shirts and T shirts, helping us rep all the companies that help us every step of the way.

 Now Oscar puts on his crew shirt for the first time being the new recruit.

The car itself was something that we were all eagerly awaiting to be completed for multiple reasons, one being that we were excited to see the new livery but another being that we needed to get it back so that we could get it back to the shop and get it running as we were really hoping to be able to drive it at Subiefest.

Now they finished the main wrap but being our timeline we had to get the car back to the shop and get working on it. Luckily for us APG was gracious enough to come to Yimi Sport Tuning and apply the rest of the decals.   

Now here is where things get a little interesting the car at this time had yet to be started and with less than a week to go until Subiefest 2015 our subie hadn’t even been started yet! The guys worked all night and day the week leading up to it and remember all these guys have a day job and Paul owns Yimi Sport Tuning! 

The finished product was amazing! It really sets the car apart from all others and makes the car impossible for photographers to miss! 

 The team really came together at the last moment staying up all night long and then working all day at Subiefest which is probably why we were all wearing sunglasses. Although the car did not get any dyno time so we were unable to actually drive it on the track but we were able to start it and drive it into its location! Although the car was now a running driving thing…. We had an issue and that issue was low oil pressure… 

To be continued…

Thank you to all my sponsors and supporters!
