2009 Dixie National Tour, #78 E Street Prepared, Transmission Carnage. The tranny goes out on the last turn of the course on my very first run. Luckily a fellow competitor let me finish out the weekend with his car. Many thanks again Robert!!

chunk of the driveshaft fly into a crowd in the background. There was also
body damage that was not shown in the video. like outie dents and where the
drive shaft hit the side of the car.
DirtyImpreza.com - Project Rally RS Episode 3 - Rollcage
In this episode of the DirtyImpreza.com Project Rally RS (PRRS) build we
cover the events from much of 2008. The 2001 Subaru Impreza 2.5RS was
stripped down, seam welded, caged, painted, and re-assembled with a donor
motor and transmission from another 2001 2.5RS.
The roll cage was constructed by Jackson Rally and is Rally America and
NASA compliant (built to FIA Article 253 specs). It has been overbuilt in
some areas for extra safety and rigidity. The shell has been seam welded
around the struts, transmission tunnel, cabin floor, and wheel wells. The
roof skin was replaced with a JDM roof to completely delete the USDM
Its been a long year, but finally we have a running rally car! There are
still numerous smaller projects that need to be tackled before this car is
stage rally ready, but some of the biggest milestones have already been
reached. Thanks goes out to Kyle at Jackson Rally for his amazing
fabrication work, Scott at California Auto Collision for painting the
inside of the car, and the dedicated DirtyImpreza.com members who
tirelessly helped to get this car where it is today.
Note: For those of you who may have been following the build this episode
might be a bit confusing, and you may ask Where did this other RS come
from? Basically, the original 2.5RS was scrapped because it had extensive
rust, and a severely damaged frame (which was revealed during its initial
tear down). The decision was made to buy another identical 2001 2.5RS with
a blown motor but no frame damage or rust, and transplant the vitals from
the other car into this one.

Subaru WRX STi vs. Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution 8
Just a little clip of the carnage unleashed upon this unsuspecting Evo.
This is brutal. He doesnt catch up til we let him. 1/4 mile in 13.3. The
STi was stock and the Evo had Exhaust
without a tune (or so he claimed when we met up)
Samurai Speed GT-R Engine Explosion!
IMPORTANT UPDATE: ENGINE IS 100% FINE!
The engine turned out to be okay. It was the bell housing the exploded
from too much torque! We'll get her fixed and back to the track quickly!
After finding the limits of the R35 transmission we're now working on
finding the limits of the engine.
We added a 150 shot of Nitrous to our
already 600+whp GT-R and created some fireworks! (And, unfortunately,
damaged the engine.)
But we'll rebuild the engine stronger than ever and be back with even
BIGGER HP! Stay tuned.
