Genuinely surprised he got you on the top end, figured he'd jump and you'd reel. If he's 550whp i can only assume hes running full e85 and a massive turbo (6262 or larger).

Ok gotchya. But as others pointed out, thatís a Subaru STI in the vid, and it is a well built one, cause usually theyíre slow, that one moves cause the op has a seriously quick car and heís rather light for this platform, heís got a bunch of vids beating some rather impressive cars. Having watched most of his vids/posts, I personally believe that STI is putting down a solid 550 and he must be fully built with a clutch and a rather big snail on it probably burning corn.

Subaru's love corn, its a fact of life.

Also a 550whp Subaru is a money pit from hell.

Ya he's been down for almost a year, and he messaged me asking if i wanted to run. Pretty solid build, but he's spent about 9grand i think.

The only seriously fast one I know of has more money in it than most people's houses.

It probably traps about 150 when it's healthy and set on kill, but for the money that's in it, it's not nearly fast enough.

He loses several major components (including an engine) every year.

Seems to be a common trend, there is a reason why I have a MK7 daily and a very stock-like Subaru.
