Preparing for Race Day

When thinking about the 2011 racing season, I wanted to be prepared in the event of any minor mechanical hiccups at the track.  I came up with a list of tools to take care of the Subaru should anything happen.  I started by picking up a cheap case at Harbor Freight.  That place is terrific […]
