Rachel Ellingsen grew up surrounded by the car world, which all started thanks to her dad and his shop. As she got older, she found herself drawn to Japanese import cars, and after a handful of Hondas, she found a 2015 Subaru WRX STI that she couldn't pass up. Today, she builds the car to achieve a perfect balance between form and function.

FAVORITE MODIFICATION
"Airlift suspension.
Being able to adjust my suspension for track, show or just driving around has been really awesome. I’ve been able to “air out” in places and watch people’s mouths word
“wow”. It’s great."

FUTURE MODIFICATIONS
"Building the head and shooting for more power is definitely next!
I plan to use misfire motorsports to assemble the head, while installing refreshed
Super tech valves springs and retainers
GSC stage 2 billet cams
Having their local connection port and polish the heads and re assembling the car to its next stage.
Also...another set of wheels."
