STM - HD2 EVO - Shake Down
The STM crew shake down, the HD2 EVO at a private test day prior to the
Northern Nationals at Fram Autolight Dragway, Meremere, New Zealand.
With a soft tune to get some data, the car went 1.17 to the 60'.
We only got one pass in as we found tiny pinhole in the intake port of the
cylinder head. This resulted in oil from the rocker cover entering the port
at idle. The pin hole is the result of a thin section of the head casting
where the head was ported which didn't show up until the car was put under
some stress at the track.
The car will be racing next at the South Island Champs. Thanks for all your

Worlds Fastest Stock Chassis AWD 4CYL Subaru WRX STI - firstname.lastname@example.org MPH
Video of Worlds Fastest Subaru WRX STI running an email@example.com and yet
to be beaten (22 Jan 2009).
This car was run in AWD down the quarter mile, not in RWD as some ppl may
think. The confusion is due to using RWD for the burnout to warm the big
rear tires. Once the burnout is finished, the car is switched back into AWD
It has a highly modified fully manualised Subaru Impreza 4EAT AWD
transmission, with billet output shafts and custom AWD/RWD selection
switch. The transmission can be purchased from Tony Rigoli Performance
(TRP), for around $13K. It is modified to allow the driver to change
between AWD/RWD at the flick of a switch.
Also, the title specifically states "Worlds Fastest Stock Chassis AWD 4CYL
Subaru WRX STI". So make sure you read that carefully and understand it is
specific to stock chassis awd subaru's.
So before posting any "someother car is faster" type of comments, make sure that
other car is a subaru, is awd, is stock chassic and only has 4 cylinders.
If it isn't, and it is about some evo or some full tube pro drag car, your
comment will be deleted.

Subaru WRX STi vs Audi S3 Saloon
Does the new Subaru WRX STi live up to its predecessors - and can it match
the new Audi S3 Saloon?

The Subaru WRX STi and Audi S3 Saloon may not seem like obvious rivals, but
both have the same power output and distant rally heritage to call upon for
their performance kudos.
At £33,245 with a six-speed manual gearbox, the Audi S3 is more expensive
than the Subaru, but the £28,995 WRX clearly doesn't have the premium
badge and upmarket cabin of its Audi rival.
With 407Nm, the Subaru has a fraction more torque than the 380Nm Audi, but
it's where that torque arrives that really makes the difference. In the
Subaru you've got to wait until 4,000rpm to get peak torque, whereas in the
punchy Audi it arrives at just 1,800rpm. These cars have got very different
There was a time when we thought the new WRX wasn't going to come to the UK
but fast Subaru fans can relax - it's finally here. In an age when cars are
accused of all looking and feeling the same, there's no doubting that a WRX
doesn't feel or look like anything else on the road.
Performance car fans will forgive the Subaru's cabin because this car is
all about the driving experience and if you've driven a WRX before then
this new car will feel very familiar. First of all the boxer engine sounds
the same, you've got that unique sound from about 4,000rpm as you start to
work it hard.
You've got a gearbox that's got quite a short shift on each change, with a
slightly notchy, quite mechanical feel, and the steering is very fast but
at the same time quite light - which can be a bit disconcerting. It's also
got quite aggressive self-centring, but once you get used to it you realise
that that's a contributing factor to what makes this car feel so agile.
This is a car that you really will enjoy on the average British road.
The first thing you notice is when you get into the Audi S3 is the upmarket
interior is in a different league to the Subaru. It's a real contrast to
the dated cabin of the Subaru.
The driving experience is completely different, too. Where the Subaru is
really vigorous all the time, the Audi is very relaxed: it drives like any
other well-sorted fast Audi.
But the performance is there: it's got the same power as the Subaru's
engine. In the Audi you've got really instant power all the time so you
don't feel like you've got to work the engine so hard.
And the handling's pretty accomplished as well. The steering's not as sharp
and the way that the diffs work is not as aggressive but there's plenty of
traction, decent body control and the car turns in nicely. It's not a
thrilling car on a road like this but it's just very accomplished.
Off the line, both cars have superb traction, but the Audi is nearly 100Kg
lighter than the Subaru, and that shows by the time we reach 60mph. The S3
punches to 60 in 5.4 seconds, whereas the Subaru is 2 tenths behind at 5.6
So which car comes out on top in our test? Well, Subaru fans will love the
sound of the WRX's boxer engine and the car's unique character. But the
Audi has a much nicer cabin, it was faster in the drag race and it's a nicer car
to live with day-to-day. Yes, it's more expensive, but if you want a fast,
comfortable and stylish performance saloon, the Audi S3 is the one for us.
2015 Subaru WRX STI: The Daily Driver Rally Car Returns! - Ignition Ep. 107
On this episode of Ignition, Carlos Lago tests the latest generation of the
perennial rally car favorite: The 2015 Subaru WRX STI. Much like the new
WRX, this STI has an entirely new and significantly stiffer body structure,
but unlike the WRX, it still uses the same 305 horsepower 2.5-liter turbocharged flat-four that's powered the car
since 2008. Our introduction to the car occurs at the press launch at Mazda
Raceway Laguna Seca. From there, we test the STI to see the performance
improvements and drive it on one of our favorite mountain roads. How does
the new STI stack up? Stay tuned to find out.
Ignition appears every other Monday on the Motor Trend youtube channel.
