    Endurance racing WRX

    Dear all,

    Just to share with you guys.

    Many people have thought that WRX has very weak engine as compared to an EVO or VTEC cars, but they were wrong.

    Our Team, Team Imperial Espace Racing has prepared a Subaru WRX STI RA Spec C to take part in one of the prestigious race in Asia called the 2004 Merdeka Millennium 12hours Endurance Race in Malaysia at the Sepang F1 International Circuit.

    We finished 6th overall out of the 73 cars of which the top 5 position are all factory backed teams while we are a private team. Besides, the top 10 finishers are all NA cars except us, which is the only turbocharged car (WRX) finishing in 6th position. So who dare to say WRX are lousy cars as compared to an EVO.

    You can see the results at http://www.malaysiangp.com.my/motors...me/results.htm

    And pictures of the car :

    I do have some, but it is not in car videos, mostly shot from outside and grandstand as well as in the Pits.

    I am not good with videos, will ask my media guys to do it for me.

    Cheers

    Thank you !

    That is actually an STI Fog Light Cover which we have converted it into an air inlet duct combine with the carbon fibre Prodrive's air filter channel duct for cool air induction purpose. On the otherside, it is the same but we used it with another carbon fibre air duct for the engine oil cooler.

    Cheers

    To sell...hmmm... I afraid that I don't have extra to sell.

    Honestly, what you can do is actually very simple. Go to any Subaru dealer near your area and purchase a set of STI fog lights cover, I will take some pictures of our race car air duct which you can see how it is being made and you can DIY yourself. It's not that difficult. But having that air duct serves a great purpose rather than look nice !

    Cheers

    You are welcome. Once I obtain those pics from my media dept, I will post here on how to make the air duct for the 2004 WRX.

    Those rims are from WEDSPORT, those rims can be shipped to any place, just go to this website www.imperial-concepts.com and send your inquiries there, someone will attend to you.

    Those are 17 x 8" rims @ 6.5 kg per rim. Very light for racing use.
