SOCIAL DIRECTOR’S REPORT Convoy rules exist so a club trip can run smoothly. CB radios are not a substitute for our convoy rules; they are used to enhance our convoy rules. While the following is not a convoy rule as such, it is necessary for the smooth running of a club trip. “Always put you name on the trip sheet or contact the trip leader if you wish to attend a club trip. If you change your mind always contact the trip leader and cancel.” The main reason for this is that the trip leader knows how many members are coming on a club trip, especially important when arranging catering or when permits with limited numbers are required. If you don’t have your name on a trip sheet, the trip details could change (cancelled, different meeting place or time) and you won’t know.

THAT’S MY CAR Thought I would do a quick run down on our latest Liberty. It is, or rather was, a Gen 2 Enduro 2.2 AWD. We bought it about 6 months ago from Keith and Danna Peters after a tip off from “Byron” Bryan Neilsen. The car had over 500,000 k’s apparently, not real sure on the exact figure as the speedo stopped working at 485,000. The car had a 40mm body lift and a set of tired King springs when we bought it. Other than the pretty ordinary looking loop bar on it, it was basically stock. First job once we got it home was to clean that many k’s of dust from the car. I stripped the interior so there was just the dash and hood lining left and got in there with the gerni. I hit every thing up with it. Gerni’d the seats, door trims, hood lining, carpet, every thing. Once the inside was clean and re-assembled we set about making it perform the way I wanted. The EJ22 and auto were scrapped to make room for an EJ20 turbo (Jap RS EJ20T, TD04 turbo, STI injectors, heads and cams, twin turbo manifold, water to air IC, APexi BOV) and STI manual box with a 2400lb clutch. A matching 4.444 limited slip diff was fitted at the same time along with CV joints all round. Engine management is controlled by a Microtech LT8S. New speedo, tacho, fuel and temp gauges have been fitted. Approximately half a million kilometres of dirt road driving really showed in the bushes and suspension. The complete front end was swapped for one from a 97 twin turbo, which included cross member, swing arms, steering rack, sway bar, brakes etc. Suspension and lift kit is now a modified 3” BYB kit, 98 Outback struts, 30mm spring lift. The rear end has had most of the swing arms changed with a few still to be done. Panel wise has been fairly simple so far. Both front guards were swapped for new ones as it was the easiest way to get rid of the dents. A twin turbo bonnet was also fitted. ...continued on page 9 8

Trip Report Benarkin State Forest 12.09.04 Trip leader: Ron Penfold Followers: Bruce Nixon, Green Auto forester, Malcolm, Green manual Forester, Dave Martin, turbo Brumby, Bryan Johnston, White Forester, Big John, Milk van Rodeo, Will, Auto L series Wagon and me in the RX turbo. I was it bit slow starting on Sunday morning but packed everything up just in time to hit the road from the Benarkin School. Where the rally camp was, Dave was running late and just as we were turning on the main road he went past, so a quick U-turn was made and he caught up. A short run up the D’Aguilar Highway and we pulled off the road and we made a short stop to look at an old look out that is no longer in use. It looks out over the highway and down the range but is fairly over grown. Then it was time for our first bit of 4x4ing which was a track that followed the pipe line that goes from Wivenhoe dam to Toorong which was put in to pump water from Wivenhoe dam up to Toorong when it is ever low on water. Following the track along we came across some very skinny cattle as it is very dry and there is not much feed for them, by this point Ron was going off memory of the trip that he had done many years ago so it was decided to stop for smoko. After smoko we turned back to head towards Benarkin to follow the old train line that ran from Yarraman to Esk that is no longer in use and has all the lines and sleepers pulled up. After about 20mins of following the line it brought us to a very large strong looking locked steel gate with another about 10 meters further, so it was very plain to see that someone didn’t want us going past. A short reverse back and up a track that brought us back out onto the D’Aguilar Highway again. We then headed for the fire tower for the Benarkin State Forest, as we were driving in the track had some very thick bull dust as part of the rally stage was held there the day before. We pulled up at the fire tower and some were

Trip Report Benarkin State Forest 12.09.04 ...continued from Page 16 keen enough climb to the top, but for some it was time for chitchat on the mobile as we had some reception (you know who you are). Now we were using some dated maps so following some of the tracks was hard, as they were different to what was on the map. And it seemed that every track we went down was a dead end so a spot was found for lunch and the maps consulted before moving on. As we left Will announced that he was going to head for home as his steering rack was playing up and was hard to turn at slow speed. It was decided that we would stay on the main forestry tracks as they seemed to be the best maintained roads, so we turn down a track called round Scrub Road, and what was ahead was the fun part. We drove along the track and the scenery, around us changed to more bush that forest and the track was more of a 4wd track, after traveling for a short time we came to a locked gate that said “Fauna Sanctuary No Entry”. A U-turn was made and we went back to a T intersection that Ron remembered seeing. As we drove along the track started to climb once we reached the top we came to another T, which had a locked gate on one track and an open down hill on the other. So the right turn was made and the track really started to go down hill and this is where the fun began. Now you could see the track had not long been bulldozed as there had been a fire through there and it was very soft slippery soil and the cars were slipping and sliding all over the place. Ron was the first to the bottom being the trip leader, with a stressed voice he announced that there was a fence at the bottom and no more track, and as I was almost there I continued for a closer look. We had to options, go through the fence or try and get back up the track we just came down, Ron had 3 attempts and couldn’t get past the first and the worst section. While he was doing that I went for a walk up the track that

...continued on Page 18

Trip Report Benarkin State Forest 12.09.04 ...continued from Page 17 could be seen through the fence and it seemed like a way out. So we untied the fence, which had been done before, and I set up the hill to see if it was going to be ok to bring the 3 forester’s up that were on the trip. As I climbed up the track it wound its way out of the gully It was fairly easy so I gave the go ahead for Mal to come up in the Forester once he got to me we waited for the rest of the gang to get up. We then headed for the plantation that we could see on the next ridge. The track then brought us back out not far from were we had lunch, we followed the main road back to the fire tower and then went to the old saw mill so have arvo tea, there we said our good-byes and all headed our own ways. Thanks to Ron for a good day even if most of the tracks were dead ends.

RALLY NEWS World drive – 24 year old Gold Coast based driver Chris Atkinson has scored the drive of his life, becoming the second driver to Petter Solberg for the gravel events in Subaru’s World Rally Team. The Team’s new bitumen specialist driver is Stephane Sarrazin. Chris’s amazing career only started 4 years ago driving a Toyota Corolla in local rallies with his brother Ben as co driver. He then stepped up to the ARC driving a privateer Mitsubishi Lancer Evo. Then he gained a drive in the Suzuki junior team driving a front wheel drive Ignis in the Asia Pacific Series. Then in 2004 with some Subaru backing he drove a Prodrive built Group N WRX in the ARC to 2nd place outright in the Championship. Now he has become the first Australian to drive a WRC spec car, full time in the World Championship. He and his new co driver Glen Macneall will set off this month to start testing in northern Finland, then they will do the recce for the first WRC round in Monte Carlo in late January. Their first rally will be the snow covered Swedish rally in February.

EDITOR’S REPORT Not much from me this month. I would still like some more trip reports, or “That’s my car” reports. Thanks Brett for the information that you have supplied on your Liberty wagon, how about some information on the green machine as well? I will be moving address next month, not sure what area we are going to go, but when I know you will know. The constitution changes have been approved, the information is in the magazine on pages 5and six. The changes are those in Italics. The changes mean that we will be able to have more life members, and also Temporary members and honorary memberships. I would like some pictures of trips, so when you go on trips don’t forget to take your cameras. I have been informed that the joke that was in the magazine may be offensive, if I have offended anybody, I am truly sorry.

HEARD THE NEWS Another sales record – For the 9th year running Subaru Australia sales have reached record levels. For the first time 2004 sales passed the 30,000 figure, a 12.7% increase on 2003, the final total was 33,619. The break down was Impreza 8156, Liberty 6953, Forester 11852, and Outback 6658. The total market share is 3.52% and the SUV market share is an impressive 24.6 %. New owners – Sunspares who are long time Suba News advertisers and Club supporters, owners Tony and Denise Allen have sold the business to Mark Adams Auto Group, who operates a paint and panel and auto electrics business nearby. For the time being Tony will be staying on as will all usual helpful Sunspares crew. Motor show debute – Subaru’s new 7 seat AWD 6 cylinder wagon first called the B9X, but now has been named the Tricbeca after a New York suburb, will be on display for the first time at this month’s Detroit motor show. At this stage it is only a left hand drive model, although a future right hand drive model is a strong possibility. Subaru’s new Italian stylist who has previously work for Alfa Romeo has designed the Tricbeca. Initial reports on the styling of the front grille and rear end have not been favourable. Dream job – Adrian Bukmanis who was a Club member before he set off for the UK 3 years ago has recently gained a job working for Prodrive, who prepare and run Subaru’s World Rally Car Team. His new job involves looking after customers in Turkey, The Balkans, and the Middle East, who purchase and rally Prodrive built Group N WRX Imprezas. Prodrive builds approximately 50 Group N cars for sale to customers around the World each year. Mobile camper – Brumby owners Don Watt and Maureen have a new edition to their well set up Brumby. It is a lightweight roof top pop up camping pod. It is called a Columbus and is made of fibreglass, and manufactured in Italy. To fit it to the Brumby Don built special removable bars, but because they go away camping so much it will probably stay mounted on permanently.

HEARD THE NEWS Parts recycling – Being in a Car Club it is amazing how some cars and parts get bought and sold between Club members. One recent example was Scott Kerrisk’s red RX Turbo. Keith Peters was the first owner who bought it as a standard car in NSW and set it and after many years of ownership and numerous trips, he eventually sold it to Scott. The car had an unfortunate end, when it was hit hard by a wayward car at an intersection. It was write off and then the parts sell off began with Bryan Neilsen probably buying the most parts for his RX including the engine, some panels, rare John Peterson Engineering built bull bar and sump guard, that he has repaired and refitted. Also Mark Ottway bought the interior for his RX.
