QuoteThe younger brother of the Legendary McRae lineage, Alister, having beaten the All Time Record of Leadfoot Festival´s Hillclimb at the wheel of the ex-Possum Bourne Subaru Impreza WRC 1998 last year, was once again the winner of the event on 2020. The Monstruous WRC unit now run by Vantage Windows Motorsport is faster than ever and converted into full HillClimb-spec, it is producing around 880Hp/940Nm.This is a 1998 S5 unit, originally driven by Juha Kangas on the New Zealand Rally, and is still powered by the 2.0L engine unit but now equipped with a Borgwarner EFR 7670 or EFR 8374 (depending on the kind of power and powerband required) with external wastegate. Running on E85 Fuel, it has an RPM limit set at 9000Rpm, delivering a maximum of 940Nm of torque at 5600Rpm.All this additional power is transferred to the ground through a 4-Wheel Drive transmission with a Prodrive Hewland 6 speed H-Pattern with hydraulic centre and front diffs, while the rear one is now either a Hewland spool diff or locked LSD option. Suspension-wise it is equipped with Reiger dampers, 3 way adjustable, double piston and RCV with tarmac springs alongside Titanium sway bars for tarmac events.While still weghing an hefty 1200Kg, it is an enormously quick machine, putting all this power to the ground in a very efficient manner, the key to its continued success at Rod Millen´s Leadfoot Festival, where it won the last 4 Editions.
Quote from: Subaru Motorsports USASubaru Reveals the Wildest WRX STI Ever - Travis Pastrana's Gymkhana STISubaru of America today revealed the most outrageous WRX STI ever, a custom-built tire destroyer set to star in the next installment of Hoonigan's Gymkhana video series with Subaru Motorsports USA driver Travis Pastrana at the wheel. Drawing on Subaru's championship-winning rally and rallycross experience, this one-off STI throws out the rule book with the sole objective of taking Gymkhana to the next level.Subaru and Hoonigan announced in May that Travis Pastrana would take over the Gymkhana series for 2020, bringing the series back to its roots—the first two installments featured Ken Block driving Subaru WRX STI models—but promising a new take on the Gymkhana concept. With Pastrana's decades of experience in rally, rallycross, supercross, freestyle motocross, NASCAR and stunts, Subaru was tasked with delivering a vehicle that could do things no Gymkhana car had ever been asked to do. The resulting build demanded the expertise of Subaru's decades of motorsports experience, and the creativity of technical partner Vermont SportsCar to build a production-based sedan on the limit of what was possible.This focus on extreme performance is evident from every angle, thanks to a raw carbon body with a wildly aggressive and wind tunnel-proven aero package unlike anything seen on a Gymkhana build before. With a custom-made SUBARU BOXER engine, flame-spitting hood exit exhaust, long travel suspension, and a race-ready interior built to Pastrana's specs, this is an STI born to shred tires and smash expectations."This STI is unbelievable!" said Pastrana. "We've never had the opportunity to do this before, to build a car with no restrictions. Engine, suspension, aero—everything is unlimited, clean sheet. It's crazy fast, easy to control and get sideways and it was perfect out of the box in testing. Gymkhana is a new challenge for me but I want to raise the bar, and this is the car to do it.""When we brought Subaru back to Gymkhana, we knew we had to build something outrageous," said William Stokes, Motorsports Manager, Subaru of America. "Travis always wants to push the limits, so we knew from the outset we weren't going to do this with a rally or rallycross car. This was an opportunity for us to redefine what an STI could be, and the results speak for themselves."
