There are ways. You can have a car that's nearly dedicated to the track. Rollbar, harnesses, seats, etc.

I don't trust subaru engine(both my FRS and STI)on track at all so I want to keep my warranty and never push hot laps constantly. Stock engine is relatively safer and has warranty to cover but it's still not a Honda B18C.
I find out it's interesting that EJ(STI engine) hardly failed at any racing event including some old WRC days and NBR24, SuperGT in past 15 years. I know it definitely has much stronger short block(also much bigger whp) but it seems to be reliable with high standard of maintenance. Modified engine with high power, bad tune or lack of proper maintenance including overheating should be the reason why EJ blows up a lot on road cars. Especially temperature of SoCal track on summer could easily rise up to 100F. I don't think subaru engine could take that even with modified oil cooler and radiator. I just leave it full stock and stop tracking SoCal tracks during hot summer.(3 months?)
lol. So true
