9-second plumbers van vs 8-second WRX
Tony Rigoli Performance Subaru WRX racing at Heathcote Park. This car still
retains an AWD system but is using an automatic transmission vs one wild
Mitsubishi Van. The van is running a Nitrous assisted small bock V8 Chev engine.
Turbo 5spd Subaru SVX at the track
Phil's turbo SVX 5spd running only 3.5
lbs of Boost, turning pretty decent
14.5 second tmes. Keep in mind most SVXs run mid to high 15s, or low 16s!
They were NOT built for the track, they were designed as highway bruisers,
NOT street racers. :) So knocking a full 1.5-2 seconds of the stock time
is pretty good. :)
