About this project

This project has been inspired by the fire breathing big BHP Group B rally cars that were banned in the mid 1980's. With a love for these cars in mind I'm creating a mid engine RWD track day car using a MK6 Escort as the base car and a Subaru Impreza turbo engine/gearbox to power it.

With the Subaru engine being quite light and having a low centre of gravity, (due to the flat 4 configuration) the car should have a good power to weight ratio and hopefully handle well, with a good suspension setup.

Test drive #1 mild throttle

The car feels excellent so far, there is a slight problem selecting 3rd gear but i think the shift cables just need adjusting, other than that it pulls hard although i didnt take it much over 4k revs.
