We are building
our racecar using a 1995 Subaru Impreza two door Coupe as our base
determined our criteria, and then looked for a car that would best
meet our requirements.
have at least two seats and be street legal
Four wheel drive
Small Frontal area
Low coefficient of drag
Light car when stripped
Reasonable number of used examples (for price and spares)
Car being raced (for performance parts availability).
Subaru is a little weak in two areas. The coefficient of drag is
.32. We hope to improve that. The suspension is Macpherson strut,
which is not ideal for racing, but usable.
car is very strong in Rally and tarmac racing. This means there
are a number of go-fast parts such as up rated shocks and light
weight carbon body parts that we can make use of.
