Thumbs up Hello from Kido Racing!

Hello everyone.

My name is Bryce and I'm a Subyholic.

It started way back in 08 when I bought an MY09 Forester XT 5 speed. It was great, but not long after the problems stated. It wasn't to good around the bends so I fitted a rear sway bar. It could be a bit louder, I wanted that famous bub bub burble so I fitted a TBE. It could be a little quicker so I got it dyno tuned. Things were fine and my problem was sated. For a while anyway. Then I thought it still understeered a bit so I fitted an anti lift kit and life was good. But time passed and the Geosquealers died. I fitted 18x8 alloys and 245/45x18 Kumhos and corners were suddenly much straighter. I was content. But then I heard rumours of an MY09 WRX with more power from a VF52 turbo and it started again, my problems were back. Time passed and I tried to resist but I am weak. I gave in. I fitted a VF52 and got a new tune from Martin Donnon at Willall Racing and wanted to understand more about tuning. I toyed and fiddled and tweaked and I still am.

My car is nice and quick in a straight line, it goes around corners pretty well to, but..... stopping. Stopping was still pretty ordinary and I found KiDo Racing. Since then I have fitted KiDo Racing coilovers, and now it REALLY handles. It's just like a WRX, only faster!

I am looking forward to meeting (at least virtually) everyone.

Hey Mate,
I only got to the rally for the Saturday but it was fantastic. So many great Foresters there. And really they are just a slightly bigger WRX
