Are you obnoxiously tall? Do race harness holes in race seats usually end up in the middle of you back? Does getting a compressed spine in an accident on track terrify you?

YOU ARE NOT ALONE! SPARCO HAS HEARD OUT CRIES!!!

Introducing the Sparco Pilot. Designed specifically for our tall drivers out there. It's also made on their new QRT technology so it's surprisingly light!

Dewey is 6'4" and most of his height is in his torso. Literally the worst case scenario for a track seat and the harness holes even clear him no problem!

Thats the reason i had my kirky custom made. The generic harness holes are at the bottom of my shoulder blades.

I'm 6'-4" and sat in a lot of seats. Sparco was the only one I found that the harness holes were above my shoulders without having to remove the bottom cushion. I will be getting another Sparco.

Would love to know the price I’m 6’5 and every seat scares the fuck out of me. I’ve had it happen to me already

That the Pilot QRT? How wide of a seat does it have? I just tried several seats that didnt fit me on Valentine's day On further reading it is the QRT but still... how wide is that ass Cushion?

Ive sat in a sparco qrt evo seat. They are awesome!

Is this the only tall people friendly model of seat?

This is the best news ever

I need a seat for a 36 waist and I can’t find dimensions on this seat

Is there a solution for wide people? I know I know we could lose weight and I'm trying but I wanna race now not in a year.

Does it make your head + helmet magically farther from the roof of the car and the cage??

Finally a seat for giants lol

Finally

Will they be making different style backs with these pilot dimensions?

Best solution prior to this was Corbeau. Do they have a "Wide Hips" version?

Dillon Long you finally have an option now

Too bad that will never fit in my C4.

Six Star Shenanigans! S209 hate? SLB Cota! Electronic power steering in Boogeyman? ... See MoreSee Less

Let’s be real: if the 22b came out today the internet would cry about it too.

People gotta take responsibility when they blow their stuff up. 🤷🏻‍♂️ my personal experience 99% of failures I had were my own dang fault

I had my exhaust pressure valve replaced at my dealership under warranty. I was told it broke because of my Borla catback exhaust. The car is completely stock other than that. I call BS on what I was told.

Mugen civic: lips, wheels, and a muffler. 3x the cost of my 8th gen even now

i still have a home made boost controller in my tool box made out of brass fittings, spring and an airsoft bb

What are the alignment spec on boogey man? looking for some guidance for my gc as well!

Dewey is right! People abuse the crap out of their subies and do not maintain them as they should be and then they complain... 🙄🙄🙄

We all know a certain someone who spent all the money on a Subaru and no judged him

Did you see the Toyota press conference? Sounds like new 86/BRZ targeting to release in summer 2021

s2k is also technically mid engine, idk but i think that helps with the weight stuff

Got that hundred waiting for the low Forty at Gingerman.

99% of the time you see absurd pricing its because the dealership owner wants the car in his collection, but by listing it for sale its covered under the dealerships insurance policy and other legal bs.

taylor ray (youtube guy) had one trunk mounted and it didnt work well. putting it in the engne bay worked much better. i guess line length plays a role in pressure and how well it works

Also sounds like they are going to come out with a GR corolla with the turbo 3 from the Yaris gr

Can a Japanese be imported now that the model exist in the us DMV system lol

I’m glad he’s driving that s209, it’s a shame when cars just sit and collect dust

I actually like the new special edition supra I read about...

Sounds like the circle track community on Chevy/Ford engine

Toyota just went "thanks BMW we don't have to design motor parts yet"

pretty sure it has the not integrated exhaust ports on the z4 so it hase all 6 ports coming off the head vs a single port

seems like 2019+ STI is much more reliable (better pistons and bearings), are you seeing this also?

Why are you doing this vs a power steering pump driven off the dry sump?

The car is worth as much as buyers are willing to pay for them. Kuddos the customer that dailies the S209 or any other car for that matter. We need more people like this!

Everyone was super excited when they announced the s209, and then they made it a super limited run that most can’t obtain, so all they can do is complain about it

But I don't think it's overpriced, it's targeted at a different price bracket

Le S209 is back in for a winter shoe setup. Luckily he had a spare set of 19 Sti wheels that would suffice for his winter needs. (YES he is daily driving through salt and snow) We ordered him a set Michelin Pilot Alpin PA4's to get him through the rest of the winter season.

Really guys?

These cars were made for all seasons. Just keep them clean and up on maintenance and it will be fine. Love it

That's awesome! What's the purpose of owning a car if you dont use it!

I still haven't put on/needed my winter tires. You know, cause Subaru

Good for him. Use the car for what it's designed to do

Idk whether to hate or love this.


Great place! Everyone was super friendly took the time to answer and understand the many questions I had. Marvin is awesome and super helpful!

Never been disappointed with a single visit. I've come to the point where they are the only people I trust to service my 2014 hatch STI. Every time I get my car back from them, I drive away smiling and I can guarantee you will be too. You can really feel the difference in quality of work from the moment you step on the gas from their shop. On top of that, these guys very inviting, personable, and honest with you. Whether you know a lot, or not so much, about cars, they will make a point to inform you on every aspect of what they do. They will also respectfully correct you, if you happen to be misinformed on something, or simply not as knowledgable. Even if you just have some questions about your car, you can ask them anything and be sure that you're getting the most accurate info. Biggest job they did for me was fix my blown head gasket. After getting the car back, it drives better than the day I bought it. There is a sense of pride in knowing Six Star worked on your car and repping them with their logo. I don't think I will ever go anywhere else and I even go as far as saying that their shop is one of the reasons why I'll probably never move away from Illinois. Worth it.

Where do I start, the whole Six Star team can be described in one word. Integrity. They literally look out for you, your vehicle, and ultimately want you the customer, to be happy. I've brought my 15' STI there for the past 3 years ever since I moved back from the west coast and they have been nothing but a pleasure to work with. I've never been pressured or upsold on any work or unecessary parts. You must be insane to give anything less than 5 stars.

Marvin and the team were extremely helpful not just taking care of my 2002 WRX but now my 2004 WRX. From having my transmission swapped in a timely manner to managing my tuning needs for my built 2004 WRX. I can always expect timely service and genuine customer service from this shop. 5/5 A+ !!

Six Star is the only place I trust to keep my 13+ year old stock WRX on the road. Everyone in the shop is encyclopedic about Subarus and it's clear the mechanics put a lot of care into their work. Mark and his team are always thorough in their diagnosis, explain all the work up front (with photos), and provide fair, fully itemized estimates before getting started. After a number of disappointing experiences with dealers and other Subaru shops in the area over the years, I'll continue to make the trip to Six Star as long as I own a Subaru. Highly recommended!

These guys are the best! My first interaction with this shop was when I was calling shops around the Chicago area trying to figure out who could do a stage 2 setup on my 05FXT. I was immediately drawn to them due to their super friendly nature and their expansive knowledge, not to mention their reviews. I scheduled a time with them to run some tests on my engine to see if it was fit for a stage 2 set up, since it did have about 138000 miles on it. Unfortunately they discovered a head gasket leak/failure which is not super uncommon for these cars at this age. But I was looking on the bright side because several other shops were prepared to just slap stage 2 bits on my car with no prior inspections and I wouldn’t have known any better, and then I would have encountered much bigger problems down the road. So to fix the issue of the leaky head gasket I declided to have them rebuild my engine, as opposed to just a head gasket replacement or buying a whole different car. I went with this because they have a rebuild option that isn’t focused on power, but reliability. That was very appealing to me since I wanted to be reassured that I’d have no more problems with my engine and I also wasn’t looking for crazy power numbers. Plus, at least from what I could find, six star is the only shop in the area to offer a rebuild package like that. After having the car back for a mont after the build, the engine runs buttery smooth and absolutely no problems. Plus they threw in some extra torques when they tuned it because they knew I’d like to have a little fun 😇. Couldn’t have left my car with a better bunch of guys, I highly recommend this shop!

Definitely recommend Six Star for everything between routine maintenance to performance upgrades. They know what they are doing. Thank you!

These guys are awesome! Recently had a motor built by them for my 2018 STI. This is my first Subaru and also first turbo car so these guys took the time to really explain the process and made sure everything was getting done correctly. The guys here don’t treat you as a work order either, they will get to know you by name. Im very satisfied with my car and even more with the knowledge I’ve gained from Marvin, Mark and Dewey. This will be the only shop I take my car to.

Fair pricing, expert mechanics, great customer service. Downside is that they are always booked; shows how good they are. Even if you aren't a customer, they will steer you in the right direction for parts or advice. if you care about your Subaru/ turbo-awd car, this place is for you.

I can't say enough good things about this shop. I've been working with them for years and they have always helped me out in times of need. Even if it was a simple oil change on my Crosstrek or a full engine build it's always a pleasure working with these guys. They will always be my go to shop!

The team at Six Star is wonderful! They took amazing care of my Forester during its 60K/brake service, and the car feels great. Even took time to schedule a secondary inspection to diagnose a potential clutch issue. They are knowledgable, happy to answer questions, and make you feel very welcome. No doubt they are the best around, and only want the best for you and your vehicle.

Love this place! Always a friendly person there that's willing to help listen and teach. Great selection on items. If you want it and do not see it dont be hesitant to ask I'm sure they can get it for you and more than likely at a lower price as well. This place would be my first selection on localized performance knowledge based people. Highly recommended!
