Jun 26, 2006 update to the Subaru Impeza project car

Back From Rally West Virginia

The results are up for Rally West Virginia. We had a bunch of fun and finished. Fun and Finishing were definitely there, fast was not. It was pretty clear that our car (especially on the larger tires) lacked the poop to keep up. At one point, we were in second gear and literally couldn’t accelerate. They make their mountains steep in West Virginia.

Here are the results. The “NASA Results” are the easiest to read.

Pics later!
