But with all that said those cars would only "dominate" when horse power comes into play. The Detroit speed car gets its ass handed to him every time he comes out to CCRSCCA events, and at z max we have some of the largest fastest courses.

Several of the rednecks and their cars will be competing in that event, so if you'd like to find out if you are faster than them, this is your chance. The event is timed, but it is not wheel to wheel, so if you ding up your car, it's your own fault.

We also have a qualifying event at Road America in June, that will be filmed for TV (since SPEED is changing, we're not sure where it will air yet). I've been trying to get a Subaru into our event for years and the last Subie we invited backed out on us. We don't hand out $10,000 at the OUSCI, but everyone in the event will have their cars on display at SEMA all week, we put them on TV and swag everyone up pretty well.

Sensational tv is sensational, no surprise. Been watching the show myself as of late and its awesome to see great cars from different markets and years.

I can't help but to enjoy how they rag on the drivers, I think that seems to be what's causing some the distaste with the show for some of you. I think it's overlooked that psychological fortitude is a huge aspect of racing and them talking smack is a great test in that regard.

Props to 04trailsti for giving them a good run and serving. Hopefully we'll see more Subaru's on the show to take the redneck's jars full of change!

I watched it in the hotel the other night. Okay I guess. Probably won't watch again but it was entertaining to watch the Audi wagon beat the Year One Mustang.

I saw that last night too. Makes me wonder if he wouldn't have miss shifted if he would of stood a chance. Pretty entertaining to watch. For all the power and torque these muscle cars have its nice to see the imports do so well.

The GTR was awesome as it should be.

Is FMIC a standard stage 2 mod?
As far as I've seen on the show, they don't list out all mods, they may call out one or two but not the full list... so I'm wondering what the black sti actually had done to it.

you can find out if it's just you at the Southern Slam next month- same track, same rednecks, timed event, but not wheel to wheel. We'll be picking at least one car from that field to compete for the title of Ultimate Street Car after the SEMA Show in Las Vegas and I'd really like to have some Subies in the mix this year-

It was definitely fun and other than having twice the horsepower most of those guys didn't have much.
I'd say you did a hell of a job racing against cars with twice the horsepower.

id count fmic as a stage 2 mod, since so many ppl go ahead and do it when they go stage 2...prob has some fuel stuff done...he cant have too much done specs on the show had him at 320hp 350tq which i think are pretty good numbers

IIRC he is prepping for a bigger turbo, neither one of our cars were much more than exhaust and a tune + ( Fmic).
As for the upcoming event I'd love to be there but I'm currently deployed and I'm sure the course will favor the muscle cars with minimum turns and a long straight so they can take full advantage of their power.
OPTIMAJIM, how come the price is so high for the event? We did a Subaru challenge there last fall at CMP and the entry was only $70 if I remember correctly. if you say it's because the competition then I'd say come out to a CCR event in Charlotte and I promise there's better competition.

We don't set the prices on any of the qualifiers, but our own Faceoff events. To be honest with you, no one has ever asked about the prices before. Was the Subaru Challenge event a full day on the racetrack, followed by autocrossing the next day? The way most of those events go, there's usually more track time to be had, than cars willing to keep running by the end of the day.

That event is also part of the BFGoodrich contingency program, which pays out for the fastest three times on BFGs in both the road course and autocross. Run the fast time on BFGs in both of those events and they'll basically pay you $200 against your $150 entry fee. Between Blackhawk Farms and Road America (as well as parking lots all over the place), we have more than enough SCCA events in our area, but our event focuses primarily on street-legal cars, versus cars that are used primarily on the racetrack, but could be driven on the street.

That show is pretty lame. Only reason I watched it was because I went to high school and used to be friends with the girl that is marrying the guy with the gtr. Caught the sti episode after that. If she didn't tell me about the show being on I would have never watched it.

So... i watched a marathon of this 'show' on Saturday.. Yea.. 250HP import going against 650HP muscle. They leave the 'rolling start' and the muscle beats the other car to the first corner almost every time. If the import was decent the redneck pushed to hard and slid the ass end wide and either spun or pulled a Yancy and crashed that kids M5. The cars that mattered.. Lambo, GTR... they pulled out the 'asskicker' car with a professional driver. Pretty entertaining show for what it is. The Audi wagon that crapped on the 'ass kicker' car was also hysterical. "My Porsche track car would walk all these cars, so I just brought the wife's car" I chuckled. The 18 yr old kid in the Exige was also pretty entertaining.

I'm watching this show right now. And I watched an sti lose to a Camaro because the driver missed a gear. And the host of the show really bashed the subaru brand as a whole. In that situation it was the driver that lost the race, not the car.

Ive seen a few episodes and it seems like they have had 2 or 3 subies on it. None of them got destroyed despite having half as much power as the rednecks. The kid with the black 06-07 sti certainly held his own. I would like to see some 500-600 hp subies or evos wipe the floor with their full race suspension supercharged muscle cars.

Just curious how did your car manage 375 tq I have same set up even a 3 port my car made 325 tq 295hp idk why I'm missing out on 50 more tq. Its tuned at 19psi pretty conservative but that's quite a but more tq. Just wondering how your protune was set up. Nice race tho, I think most of us with stis like yours would have got spanked in that race an you were right there on him the whole time.
