Default FOTM January 2013 - "Dyno Time"



So, it's the new calendar year and the FOTM calendar is reset and open to all members again. That means those winners from 2012 can enter again if they wish. Currently the voting is on for last year's top FOTM winner in the FOTY Poll.
This month's theme is...

January: "Dyno Time"
- show your Forester working out on the treadmill



This month is for those who enjoy let their Forester flex it's muscles on the treadmill. Some of you may already have shots like this while others may need to go to your local tuner for a fresh Dyno tune. If your Forester has been strapped down to the rollers for a full workout, then this is your chance to enter!
This contest usually comes down the best photograph, so show your best shot for the best chance of winning. This isn't however a contest of who put down the biggest numbers, but we aren't going to discourage you from including that from your post...


Same rules as always:

-Photos must be in hosted format and embedded in your post
-The photos must at least contain YOUR Forester and not someone else's.
-No more than 4 photo's per entrant
-Polls will begin when we get 10 entries or January 19th, whichever happens first.

LAST YEAR'S WINNERS:

August 2012 - yallahyimshi
September 2012 - sooblover
October 2012 - EuroJosh
