WRX Takes On Ralliart: Subaru vs. Mitsubishi

FOR MORE WRX VS. RALLIART: http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do/Drives/Comparos/articleId=138347??tid=edmunds.il.home.photopanel..2.* Stuff the 2009 Subaru Impreza WRX into a corner, and you know it deserves a rematch with the 2009 Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart. It's no less refined than the 2008 WRX, but it goes in without paralyzing understeer and doesn't keel over as soon as you load the outside tires. Provoke it and you'll get some attitude. When you're back on the throttle hard at the exit, there's no rush to grab 3rd gear. Rescued from last year's rev-starved funk, the 2.5-liter boxer-4 engine wants to see its 6,500-rpm redline again. Most important, the 2009 Subaru Impreza WRX isn't trying so hard to distance you from the drive. It rewards your efforts in the cockpit — one of the things that made the previous-generation WRX so likable. Probably this is also why the 2009 Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart is so involving to drive. Introduced last summer, this Lancer Ralliart is the long-awaited head-on challenge to the WRX dynasty and it kicked the 2008 WRX while it was down. Even compared to the 2009 WRX, Mitsubishi's Ralliart is a flashier package. It has mechanical limited-slip differentials both front and rear, a very neat automated dual-clutch gearbox, Recaro seats and the schnoz of a tiger shark. Evo Jr. has a nice stiff chassis, too. If the homely gray Subaru has any shot at winning here, it will have to do more with less.

Street Fight: WRX v Lancer Ralliart v Mazdaspeed 3
CHECK OUT THE SPORT COMPACT COMPARISON: http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do/Drives/Comparos/articleId=128908?tid=e dmunds.il.home.photopanel..1.* Thanks to three turbochargers, 724 horsepower and five limited-slip differentials, comparing the 2008 Mazdaspeed 3, 2008 Subaru Impreza WRX and 2009 Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart should be more entertaining than a cage match between Quinton "Rampage" Jackson and New Kids on the Block. Imagine the fun! Donny and Danny hangin' tough from the walls of the cage while Joey, Jordan and Jonathan get tossed into the crowd. The way we see it, our Rampage vs. New Kids bout is no different from pitting the Mazdaspeed 3 — the current champ of the sport compact world — against the Lancer Ralliart and Subaru WRX. On the track, an epic ass-kicking is bound to ensue. But comparison tests aren't always won on the track. Since these cars all share a focus on real-world driving for enthusiasts, we weighted performance as 25 percent of this test's scoring total, leaving the remaining points to price (20 percent), feature content (20 percent), fuel economy (15 percent), our subjective evaluation (15 percent) and personal and recommended picks (5 percent). So performance is important, but in the end, the most well-rounded car wins.





Fast & Furious 4: Subaru WRX STi
MORE FAST & FURIOUS @ INSIDELINE.COM: http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do/Features/articleId=143967?tid=edmunds. il.home.photopanel..1.* What's a Fast and Furious movie without some obvious product placement? And in Fast & Furious, the most obvious product placement is Subaru's WRX STI. The Subie got its role in F&F when the picture car coordinator went looking for a new, high-performance, rally-type car for FBI agent Brian O'Connor (super-dreamy Paul Walker) to drive near the film's climax. Basically it was a choice between the Mitsubishi Evo X and the WRX STI, and Subaru was the first one to say it would supply cars. So Subaru it was. Subaru gave a total of seven brand-new WRX STI models to the production in exchange for prominent placement in the film. But just because they were zero-mile cars doesn't mean that they were treated with any respect by the picture car department. After all, what matters in movie-making is getting the movie made, not making sure any Subaru survives unscratched. So all the Subies had their interiors stripped, all were fitted with straightforward tuner-style modifications from Perrin, Cobb Tuning and Veilside, and then they were sent out to work on the set. Of the seven, one was cut up into an engine-less filming buck and five were destroyed during filming. The remaining car is in a warehouse awaiting another shot at fame.

Impreza WRX STi for Cops? Subaru Impreza Specialty Cars @ 2009 CAS
MORE CHICAGO AUTO SHOW @ INSIDELINE.COM: http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/autoshows/chicago/2009/subarucustomimprez awrxstinews.html Subaru has built a custom 2009 Impreza WRX STI for factory rally team driver Travis Pastrana in celebration of his third Rally America National Championship. You can see the car at the 2009 Chicago Auto Show, with Pastrana himself expected to make an appearance February 14 and 15 to sign autographs. Pastrana's new ride uses a combination of custom-made parts and accessories from both Subaru Performance Tuning and Subaru Tecnica International. To improve handling, Subaru has added an SPT front strut tower brace and SPT lower chassis brace. The stock 305-horsepower STI engine receives a performance Boost from a tuned ECU and custom downpipe. An STI short-throw shifter is connected to the six-speed gearbox. This special 2009 Subaru WRX STI also receives a custom carbon-fiber hood and rear spoiler along with a chin spoiler, mesh grille and Exhaust finishers sold as STI accessories. Biggie-size BF Goodrich G-Force Super Sport A/S 275/35ZR18 tires are wrapped around 18-inch Work Evolution XD-9 wheels finished in custom satin black. PIAA high-intensity discharge headlights, mud flaps and decals complete the rally look. The interior upholstery is done in blue Alcantara trimmed in yellow piping. Custom yellow stitching also adds accents to the steering wheel, shifter boot and brake lever boot. Carbon fiber-patterned trim adorns the dash, doors and console. The STI's very basic stock sound system has been replaced with Kicker speakers, amplifiers and a 10-inch subwoofer. Subaru has also tucked an Xbox 360 underneath the passenger seat and connected it to the Eclipse head unit.

E85 Lancer Ralliart Update
Here's an update on my 2009 Lancer Ralliart Build! It made 285whp/310wtq at 28.5psi on E85 Ethanol. Maxed out the stock turbo! On a Dynojet I would be making 315whp/350wtq approx. My SST clutch packs are now slipping so my trans will be sent out on the 3rd of March for a complete build with 500whp Clutch Packs. You can hear and see my clutches slipping under WOT. I usually do not do WOT pulls on my car while my trans is compromised but I made an exception for this video. For those who do not know: The Lancer Ralliart has All-Wheel Drive and the turbocharged 4B11 seen in the Evo X, the suspension is radically different as is the brakes.
