Can I add something.....
The MY99 WRX in Oz comes standard with 4 pot calipers, and I am pretty sure that it does over there too.
I have a web site of mine that might shed some light on this topic www.act.wrx.com.au

Hey Guys,

Apparently, Australia will be exporting 200/300 SS Commodores to the US to outfit the CHiP units as persuit specials. Hopup kits for these cars can bring the horsepower upto the 600Hp mark. But, as expected, reliability and a deep wallet become the concerns.

Although, 340Hp is not that bad....

But, nothing compares to the Motorcycles. I have, on two occassions raced cars on twisty roads.

March 1998 - Triumph Speed Triple versus Ferrari 355. I WON... :)

May 1999 - SuperMotard versus Porsche 911 I think... You know, the frog looking one.. :D. Twisty mountain roads... YEEHAAA, the bike won again.. :D

Craig:

The reasons for selling are that:

a) Its been riden once this year due to my injury
:D It won't get riden again this year due to my injury and upcoming surgery AGAIN! :)
c) I plan to make 100%+ on my money with this vechile. Enough to be debt free at the end of it AND have a NEW BIKE and another car of similar specs on the way.
d) As soon as the 250Fs comeout it going to be ANOTHER year older and be worth a couple of grand less.. plus there are HEAPS of 426's for sale around here.. more when the 250F's arrive!
