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.

Subaru Powered Peugeot 205 T16 style Project.

Ok so my new project has started, i have got a subaru  impreza wrx sti version 4 that i am stripping down at the moment, the new car is going to be a peugeot 205 with a front mounted subaru  engine and the 4wd system with a full roll cage,rear mounted radiator, battery, fuel  tank etc to balance the car out and a t16 style body kit to suit the wider track of the impreza. I am hoping for the car to weigh no more than a ton, with plenty of power and a shorter wheelbase it should be seriously fun to drive.
