This car is about more than raw power; Hill demands the ability to use said power as efficiently as possible. "The Tein Flex suspension is and has been one of best mods I've done to the car for the simple reason that the horrible body roll is gone; and, the car carries almost twice as much speed through the corners," McCarty says. "The spring rates are a little bit stiff, but, on the whole, it's an excellent suspension for people who still want to drive their cars on the street." The Tein coilovers are joined by Cusco strut tower braces, a Cusco front sway bar, a Whiteline 24mm rear sway bar, a Cusco lower arm brace, Cusco trailing arms, a Cusco lateral link set and STi control arms ... talk about chassis stiffness overload.

There is no doubt that the car is visually stunning. McCarty raided the Kaminari catalog when looking to body tune this beast. The Subaru is adorned with a full Kaminari body kit, Kaminari V2 rear skirt, Kaminari one-piece carbon splitter and a Kaminari carbon-fiber hood. A MonsterSports carbon-fiber trunk and EDM STi projector headlights round out the exterior mods.

Inside, the Subie exudes a rally flair that has made the WRX a prime-time player in the sport compact scene. This time it was the inventory shelves at Sparco that were emptied. McCarty called on fully reclinable Sparco Torino seats, a Sparco four-point harness in a matching WRB color, a Sparco harness bar and even a Sparco fire extinguisher. To tie the look together McCarty had the rear seats wrapped in the same Torino fabric.

"Future plans for this car are to pull it off the street and turn it into a drag car," McCarty says. "This means the car is going on a serious diet and will be shedding 200 pounds or more. At the same time the car will get treated to a full custom roll cage, a Agile Drag Fuel System, a built engine, a brand new custom turbo kit, and a dogbox gearset." Due to shop commitments it has taken four years to get Hill's WRX to this point in its evolution, but we have always believed that attention to detail is more important than time - as you can see.
