Dino from Speedhunters knows how to shoot cars and especially at the Super Lap Battle event at Tsukuba Circuit in Japan.

The AVO STi has an extreme amounts of grip and has the typical Time Attack look with all “business”. The heart of the beast is an¬†invincible Cosworth Block and the boost at 2 bar and has a capability of making well over 600whp. It set a great lap of 58.298 which surpassed its previous best lap time of 59.343.

The Original Runduce STi was there with some mild bolt ons including their great looking aero enhancements. The STi makes roughly 400hp and Dino on the article pointed out the dry carbon turbo inlet. That looks AMAZING! Please put that under the “WANT” category!

Prodrive Japan with Auto Produce Boss brought out this pretty clean GRB and it was able to manage a 1:02.199 which was great for a street car!

Bozz Speed had their R205 STi in attendance with a host of great modifications. Full Titanium exhaust? Yes please! It also holds a Trust Turbo giving this R205 a hefty 400whp. I noticed that in a lot of these STi’s, they don’t do what a lot of State-side Subarus do and reverse the intake manifold. Maybe it’s a USDM thing?

Super Autobacs Nagoya showed up with this fresh GVB STi with Volk Racing TE37 Super Laps and Endless Brakes!

HKS Kansai came out with their GVB! Looks great and I know they’ve just started tuning it!

Dino spotted this clean Legacy GT in the paddock area! If Darth Vader had a family sedan with some guts, this would be it.

I love hitting up our friends at Live Sockets Entertainment and their series of websites, including Apartment 107! They always have fresh info and news there. I saw that they put up an article about the recent Super GT Races in Japan and that Subaru came in with a win with their new Legacy B4 GT300 race car!

In the GT300 class the R&D SPORT LEGACY B4 (Tetsuya Yamano/ Kota Sasaki) emerged the winner. Starting from 11th position on the GT300 class grid, the team worked up steadily through the pack to and finally took the lead on a faster pit time in the last pit stop. This is a team that made its GT debut part way through last season and skipped round four of this season to make some major changes in the machine that led to this victory. For the team, its first podium finish of the season turned to be a victory.

It’s awesome that some time off and more R&D that this pretty crazy Legacy has been able to pull off an impressive win!¬†More info on this car later!
