Default I got Salt in my eyes, A week in Bonneville leaves me wanting a 200mph WRX Wagon

I just got back from a week of Salt, Speed and Sun in Bonneville. Out car set a record for it's class XF/BVGCC at 136.524, which is not bad for a blown 1948 Merc flat head. We actually would have ran in the 150's but the put H rated tires on instead of Z rated tires so we were told if we went over 150 we'd get disqualified. So we ended up putting a low gear set in the rear to keep from getting in trouble. One other side note, the driver of our car was Julie Dollansky, wife of Sprint car driver Craig Dollansky.

Ok now on with my dreams. While out there I got to looking at the record book. The WRX falls in the G/PS class. PS is for production superchagred and G is the engine class for 1.51 to 2.0 liters. The current record is 196.824, you know what that means. MMMmmmm 200 mph WRX Wagon. You don't need 8000hp to 200 mph at Bonneville, you have about 1-2miles to get up to speed the depening on which track you are on (Short for sub 170, Long for 170+ runs) you get clocked either over 1 mile or 3 miles. So anyone think that it can be done? I know some will talk about what the car is aerodynamically limited but if you saw some of the cars out there making 170+ passes they are no more areodynamic then the wagon.

I think Cobb is working on a WRX for that.

Yeah I figured they may, especially since they are so close. Thougth I am curious if they would run in the G (2.0l) or F (2.5l) class engine wise. Oh well nothing like a little competition.

One thing that is cool about it out there is that, since there is no prize money involved and there are so many classes everyone is pretty helpful to one another.
