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
See our build up thread of this car.

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 R-STi - JDM vs USDM: A Friendly Rivalry -- /TUNED
In the US, we never got the best Subaru of them all, the first generation
WRX coupe, getting stuck with the fun-but-not-fast 2.5RS version. One of
the more popular upgrades for those cars is the "R-STi" drivetrain swap. In
the season premiere of Tuned, we look at two approaches: the USDM
drivetrain swap, and the JDM drivetrain swap. Which is better? You decide.

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.
