Default Car and Driver/ESX/TCD 25 Hours of Thunderhill with a Wicked WRX STI

I got that from a page on Car and Driver website.....about the up coming 25 hours of Thunderhill.

OK...last year SHIV from Vishnu Perfromance systems built a EVO for C&D...it blew up a few times and didn't do so well...


I'm sure the C&D staff would not go out there to race a normal/privately owned car...as the other two cars they are runnin are owned/built by Honda of Amercia and Gale Banks.

So fess up....what shop/tuner had built this beast???..I know its out there.

We want some more info.

A combination of shops had their hand in the overall setup of the car from what I heard it is a ESX/PDX/TC Designs car with a nice little setup (looked great on the dyno this weekend).

I just pulled the starting lineup from the NASA website..lists ESX/TCD and C&D with a 2005 Subaru.

I wish them the best of luck and hope they do well.

I hope the turbo holds up. Between the problems they had with it last year and the problems ESX had at the Tuner Challenge- luck with Turbo's is not that groups strong point.

Good luck to them.

Ohlin 3-way struts, Stoptech 355 fronts, Stoptech custom 325 rear rotors, Pagid Endurance pads, lots of power with 3 preset on-the-fly driver selectable maps, 32 gallon fuel cell, serious custom cage, big Perrin front mount intercooler, Cusco aluminum bellypan with custom aluminum splitter, custom rear swaybar, lots of odds and ends from everywhere. Car weighs about 2800 lbs. Should be lots of fun!

knowing car and driver theyll probably be too busy testing the cup holders and climate control ergonomics to even bother racing.

quite the team there. it sure would be tough to hand over the keys to a 14 year old kid, even though i'm sure he has more track time than most of us. on second thought, it would be a media magnet.

built to speed WC specs. is it going to hit any events in '06?

Sorta like Team 16 at Daytona 24 last year.

The Racers Group Porsche GT3RS run by 3 16 year olds (lucky kids) and Ross Bentley.

They had a strong result staying out of trouble the entire race.

They weren't allowed to drive a golf cart in the paddock though. Had to be over 18 for that.
