    any chance you can find the link again?

    I raced with the American Indycar Series a lot in the 90's. About 90% of the Chevy conversions out there are cars I worked on.

    Was it a white trailer with checkered flag design on front? Or the black trailer with the yellow car?

    thanks

    And they had such awesome results as rallyists.
    2000: MFR - DNF, OFPR - 38/42, Wild west - 16/18, Prescott - 9/16, LSPR - 28/38
    2001: OT - 15/31, Rim - DNF, STPR - 11/51, MFR - DNF, OFPR - 37/37, WW - DNF, Prescott - DNF, LSPR -DNF
    2002: PPIHC - DNF, OFPR - DNF

    And that concludes a typical Subaru pro rallyist career.
    I just bought an auto FWD Impreza a few hours ago.

    For you.

    Yeah. I saw an Impreza for $600 and told the lady I'd buy it.
    224K, needs front pads, auto, FWD.
    Probably put front pads on it, drive it to and from work until the temp tag expires, then sell it.

    I work like restaurants. Scale of 1 to 5.
    I actually started working up a proposal for something of this scale. Imagine if you had the budget of Rockstar (~$1 million +) but instead of trying to win, you just focused on driving well and getting a ton of exposure. Quantity over quality. Well except 2WD cars. Because they can be built to be decent and class winners without spending $50K+ on the car. But focus the funds on getting to events and make each team continue to maintain their own cars to an extent.

    Not true. RallyKnight guys are automatic transmission engineers, that's why they use them.
