They were weight restricted to 3200 lbs on the street car.
And the motor and trans were lasting full seasons at the end....just replacing clutch packs. And iirc they were on radials too.

Talk is cheap, and makes you look like an idiot if you don't back it up with facts or in this case timeslips
clearly the ESX car is lighter than stock, it has a sheetmetal floor and a lot of weight reduction mods in the bay.
I'm not really a fan of ESX persay but to be fair the car he's talking about isn't that car in the picture. The car he's talking about that ran the 8.9 was a 3200lb car with full interior and whatnot. I don't believe it ran 8.91 all boost, there was nitrous involved.

Here is a picture of the engine bay of that car:

Looking at the forum name, looking at your post, they do not belong together.

Sorry i came off like such a dick.. I don't want anyone thinkin i don't think andys car is sick & I have always respected what he's doin over their.. But u know we could put it down once & full all by simply asking what class & tire do u run & What lbs is your car? Cause we do weigh 3200lbs , we do run dot radials & we meet all nhra safety for street class rules... Yes phatron ur right the car goes a full season on one motor...

Correct me if I am wrong but the 7.9 was with the rail car?

When was the last time ESX raced ? and I saw in a post that ESX sold the rail car to Australia.

thats whats funny about this whole game, he hasnt done **** in a couple of years and is still right up there with what your doing.. NO DISRESPECT at all, I love me some subarus, in fact I want a suby to OWN that 4cyl record. not a mitsu... THATS ALL. Im all subaru all the time. and to say that these monster cars arent using some sort of spool aid is silly. ESPECIALLY WITH AN AUTO..

Hey guys, Ali here. Love how everybody is going so fast! Seriously it's pretty cool to see these cars going so quick. I'm working on a Subaru Shootout for the summer but it will most likely have to be here on the west coast, since that's where I can get track support and sponsorship to throw an event like this. Not sure if I'll compete in it, maybe we'll have a contest again and let one of you guys race it?

I don't personally check the forums much, as we're busy making films (with Subaru's in them!) but a few people made me aware of this thread. I think there's some confusion, since I've had a bunch of different Subaru's in the past, here's the truth about my cars.
Street Drag Car : ESX STI #002, 2005 STI, Won two national NHRA year end championships in 2006 and 2007. Maximum Velocity female driver search winner Julie Stepan drove it in 2005 and 2006 and I drove it in 2007. This car also won 18 NHRA first place Wally's and countless IDRC, Battle of the Imports, CMI and NOPI races. It's a full body, 3200+lbs (NHRA weighed us down super heavy every time we won), on radials, full interior, full exhaust, single turbo 4 cyl with NOS and with 4speed auto trans (no trans brake per rules). It has run 8.9's dozens of times since 2007. In the early years (2001-2003/4) we had a lot of engine development but since 2005, everything's been pretty solid and reliable.

Rear Wheel Drive 2005 STI (pictured in this thread): Was a car I had to build in 60 days to be eligible to run the full NHRA season in 2005 and 2006. It was only raced in 1 NHRA race until the all wheel drive Subaru was ready. 4cyl, lenco trans, 8.3 I think in Colorado. This car is now owned by Officer Tom Gibby and his race team. It's gone thru different engine combos, v8's, etc., but I think now it's got a Suby 6 cyl in it. I actually drove it once with the v8 and I think it went 8 something. There's a video of it somewhere online. Keep an eye out for Gibby to see this car in action.

All Wheel Drive Subaru pro car: This was a full tube chassis car with a single turbo 4cyl, with nos for spool up and an auto trans. Car weighed a bit over 2400 lbs with me in it and ready to race. This car ran 7.9 a bunch of times way back in 2006, wow over 6 years ago!! Car was sold do Dbronx (on Nasioc somewhere) and it sports a gold paint job now in Australia.

I hope that clarify's everything and everyone is great! I hope to be able to bring some of the fastest Subaru's in the world to our shootout. UK, Aus, etc. If anyone needs to get a hold of me, please email me at ali@esxmotorsports.com. I can reply much faster. I still have the list of people interested in a shootout and will contact you guys when the time is right.

Sounds like you heard right. I'd expect the trans to stay around though.

Throw in Paul's BRZ for road race and it sounds like the ultimate Subaru quiver to me!
