What Makes an X Games Rallycross Car?

Ever wonder why rallycross cars pop and bang so much? We caught up with Clint Fast of the Subaru Puma Rallycross team during X Games in Los Angeles to give us a tech rundown on their newest Global Rallycross Championship rides.

Cool video, nice to see actual "tech" talk.

So that response system seems like an interesting alternative to an Anti-Lag system, im assuming because it wont destroy Turbos or Exhausts every race hahah

So in other words what he said at the end is the rules are literally set against subaru by making it mandatory that they don't get the benefit of a center diff that can split the torque between the front and rear.

How does having a awd system like theirs that is in full lock 100% of the time unless they yank the e-brake affect the way the car drives?

oh and congrats to Sverre he really knows how to get the most out of the car and show that the STI is still competitive in GRC.
