Quickest Subaru WRX 4-cylinder AWD
The Tony Rigoli Performance crew are well known for tweaked EJ20 series engines. This WRX still retains the factory chassis but a mini tubbed rear end retains a 4WD driveline. Going 8.41 at 161mph the car's best time is 8.34 over the quarter mile.
Footage is from June 2006
Syclone World record 8. 76/161 mph
This weekend we was at Kjula Raceway. It was a test and tune weekend. Saturday was good weather, Sunday was gonna rain, so we only had one day to tune. The track was ok, but not fully prepped and superglued, but it was good enough for us, compared to the street :) We got 5 rounds, 4 of them was 8´s Of course we are running E85.=) Hope to get better 60 foot times next time=)

16th Annual U.S. Army World Cup Finals: Import vs. Domestic.
Syclone 0 60 mph 2.1 Sec
Did some testing on the street today with dot tires. What can I say, this is a bad AWD V6 monster! Of course I never hold the throttle all the way, too much power for the street. Not bad to hit 0-60 in 2,1 sec. :)
Efter en liten utställning på Jula Eskilstuna blev det dags för lite lek....

2 GMC Typhoons doing Simultaneous Burnouts at the SyTy Nationals in 2001
One 1992 GMC Typhoon and one 1993 GMC Typhoon doing a simulaneous burnout at the 2001 SyTy Nationals. The black truck driven by Jeff S had a 20g turbo and 9/11 converter. The blue truck is driven by Todd D and was 100% stock at the time of the video. The front propshaft (driveshaft) was removed to allow such antics, typically burnouts are prohibited because of the AWD system the trucks are delivered with. The tires used were stock size on a stock set of wheels and were the only casualties of the event ;-)
