I dont know much, if anything, about running a car in the mile but if you had a better launch and FFS would that make a big difference on your MPH? Cause it seemed like you shifted very slow and bogged the launch

Man, I'm really hoping to be able to make it there in October!
I'll still have a full size fuel tank though.

why the funk can't our aero be better from the factory...with the same power, many other cars are doing ~200-215 from what I have seen. What's your final drive?

It's true. I bogged the launch, and it resulted in the best mph pass of the weekend. Counter intuitive, but it always seems to work out that way. I keep threatening to launch in 3rd, but no one else seems to find the proposition interesting. (or even funny)

FFS would probably result in a higher speed, but I am concerned about what shifting into 600lbft of torque would do to the car. Other competitors consider it impolite to leave pieces of your car on the track.

Come on down! It's always a fun weekend. Let us know, and we'll save a spot for you in the Subaru pit.

Not even in the same league. You are comparing a 997tt Porsche, with an STi? The 997 has decades of road racing and high speed work behind it as the 911 heritage was built on road racing and two seat performance coupes.

The Subarus are built for rally, and a 4 door sedan family hauler. With the Impreza, you are taking a 4 door pedestrian sedan and tweaking it to make the STi. With the 997, you are taking a car set at 10, and making it an 11 on the volume knob with the TT. The 997tt has so much more potential, as you referenced with a flash, and prob. still costs a chunk more than the OP car with all the mods.

OP, great record, and sharp looking car.

Yeah, Subaru isn't really at the top of the list for ideal top speed platforms. I just sort of landed in LSR after RallyX fell apart in TX. I figured it would be something new and different.

I'm not sure what the flash gets you in a 997, but I went 182mph with ~550whp last year. Anyone going 215+ is hitting around 1000whp. That's a lot easier to do when you have an extra liter or so of displacement.

Final drive is unchanged.

But, as stated above, the 997 is so much more aero friendly. If a stock 997 is 420-450hp, a flash would prob. be 500 or so, not fact but educated guess. But, that same 500hp is a lot quicker in an aero friendly package than the shoebox impreza.

So, rally X to LSR? Nice!! Now, that is versatility.

well if you think about it they are only allowed a mile. So to pull fast enough to make record runs in 1 mile they need alot more balls than cars that can do it on a open test track with tons of space to get there.

I was just thinking about this and am curious what the world speed record is for a subie? I know Andy Forrest is at 210.2 but only claims fastest UK subie.
Anyone know for sure?

I know Andy did 210 in 1.25mi. I think an FHI team from Japan ran a Legacy (or a pair of them) for FIA 10km, 10M, 5000km, 5000M, 10000km, 10000M, 25000km, 25000M, 50000km, 50000M speed records at ~140mph back in 1989. There is a Justy from the 80's that still holds it's class record in the flying mile the last time I checked (127? Don't quote me on that).

There is more in store from that EVO this year. Can't wait to see it.

In all fairness, back when I was doing 170 on the OEM engine, the EVO in question broke 200 for the first time with a 42R, which was the street car record for Texas at the time. He does have a few years of development on me. Given the small turbo, I think I'm doing alright.

Yeah, same data I could find. Didn't realize Andy had 1.25 miles though.

I'll be following that little white evo too. I still can't believe how sketchy the track in NC is

Like some others have said, the best part is that it's such a sleeper. The car looks fairly unremarkable, especially compared to other 200 mph cars.

long time bump
I'm curious what baseline pressure you're running those ID2000's on and how much room you still have left with the Meth? Really basically curious about the BSFC.

I don't have my notes or logs with me, as I've been visiting my mother in hospice. I'm pretty sure the base fuel pressure was 60-65psi, or whatever worked out to ~2500cc/min on the chart for the injectors.

I was concerned about IDCs when tuning low boost, which is why it was turned up a little. I'm not sure we really needed that after all. Turned out that the IDCs that the AEM was logging were complete gibberish. They wound up in the mid 100s (140-160) for the runs, which means nothing. AEM told us that it sometimes happens with meth, and that people sometimes see well over 200% with headroom left. That didn't make much sense to me. I only know of one way to calculate IDCs, and I can't see how it could be that far away from reality just because of fuel type.

All I knew was that when I added fuel, there was more fuel according to the WBO2. So, we hadn't found the end of the fuel system on methanol at 700whp+. In short, I'm really curious about BSFC as well.

Thanks for the support. We're taking it one day at a time, and the days have been good as of late.

I don't think I'll be running the AEM come October. I'm not sure if it's because of the cam sensor configuration, or if the injectors are just larger than the EMS can handle. From what AEM said, it may just be the large injectors. Whatever the reason, it doesn't inspire confidence in the EMS.

This also reminds me that I need to give that EVO a call tomorrow, and see if he's ready for next weekend.
