Subaru has got a lot on their hands these days, with the release of their first sports coupe the BRZ as well as fans rallying to find out the juicy details of their next STi and WRX.
The contest has ended and the guys over at Factory Five have announced a winner. The contest was simple, the best design for it’s upcoming 818 sports car wins. The design did need to match a few guidelines. The vehicle must utilize a Subaru WRX donor car and had to stick to a 95 inch wheelbase, seat two people, work with a mid engine/rear drive configuration and weigh a maximum of 818 kilograms, hence the name.
COBB has recently released their launch control and flat foot shift for all Subaru turbocharged manual cars. The way COBB explans it is the launch control limits the engine’s RPM to a user-set value when launching to build boost and increase launch consistencys. The flat foot shift allows the driver to maintain wide-open-throttle during gear changes, keeping partial boost between shifts and improving acceleration post-shift.
