Default E-locker a Reality.

For those who have not been following my build thread, I have now installed an e-locker diff into my SG Forester. The drivetrain specifications are:
- Custom dual range gearbox with shot peened gears
- 1.446 low range
- STI 6 speed front diff
- 4.44 diff gears
- 0.738 5th gear
- DCCD
- 2.5 litre turbo hi torque engine with custom tune
- R180 diff, driveshafts, hubs with twin piston rear callipers
- Harrop Eaton e-locker diff centre

Under consideration for next year are plated front diff and 1.6 billet low range.

With that e-locker and all the other mods, you probably have the most capable Subaru !

Now you just need AT or MT tires...

I don’t have a wharf, so there are no boats to protect when lashed up against one. So what would I do with such tyres? ��

You have built a true gem, Rally! Definitely a top contender for best Subaru.

Hats off to you

But, yeah, time to ditch those street tires

Now there's the thing... What's defeated you/your car in the past Rally? Is there footage of some terrain you weren't able to get over prior to the e-locker (or at least had difficulty), that would be easier now?

We need video!!!

To do the comparison, I will need a car to compare it to. To test just the rear locker, I will need a car with either a dccd or lock up auto.
