Built PPG tranny 280 Cammed 2.5 20G hybrid WRX doing a couple crappy AWD burnouts
(Cut out is open) Will get some more when the road is cooler....usually pretty nasty these are weaksauce. BTW, I have over 2-300 launches on this gearset. :) Sorry guys the pavement was 110-120 degrees i tried the new 245 KDWs thought otherwise. Sounds like the clutch is slipping it's not. It's a brand new 6 puck and AWD system doing it's job. It was more of a "rally launch" lol. The car has a highcomp 2.5 (257 with rex heads) hybrid(9.1-1), Brian Cower 280s, shimless valves, APR head studs, Blouch 20g turbo. It's actually on one of its many break in tunes. This one is very conservative (timing, fuel, and no meth) at 18psi. The Meth/Alchy kit get turned back on when i'm not lazy enough to tune it. I will be shooting for 25+ psi, 880cc of 100% alchy/meth, and 450+whp.

Transmission Explosion.
you can see the hood and bumper move from the explosion. you can also see a 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.
