Default Subaru on 39.5" BFG Krawlers

My '99 Forester on 39.5" BFG Krawlers. GT-35 turbo, EMS computer, supposedly 300+HP and it does feel zippy. The engine is hooked up to a Chevy Powerglide and from that to an Atlas transfer case. I made the adapter out of 1/4" aluminum using a dial indicator, the Subaru trans, and a Chevy bell housing. It seems to work. I had a friend that owns a machine shop make me a puck to bolt the Chevy flex plate to the Subaru crank. I was in way over my head, but that is what makes a project interesting.

Tube buggies are pretty cool for what they are intended, but only useful in areas with mild climates. Neat.

It seems to have pleny of power. I pulled out my rear axle shafts (35 spline) today and they are badly twisted. Must of been the nuetral drop in 2wd.

The 2.2L rock buggy would be Aaron and Jason's. They rebuilt it with a turbo and put in a 2.5L.
