SUBARU ON THE RACETRACK!
From how people tend to drive them on regular roads, you might be surprised to learn that Subaru is one of the leading vehicles for rally racing and off-roading. You can move those suckers hard if you want. But, of course, if you already own a Subaru, you probably already know that.
Interesting factoid: all Subaru comes with a Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive transmission. That means the engine is mounted in line with the drivetrain (powertrain), allowing it to drive all wheels equally, and their drivetrain setup uses fewer parts too. This makes Subaru much more accessible to control, especially in difficult or low-traction road conditions. This is one of the many reasons Subarus are very popular on the rally circuit. Their typical low center of gravity also allows for better road control, another crucial boon for rally racing.
SUBARU DRIVETRAINS MAKE THE DIFFERENCE
Focusing on an efficient, simpler drivetrain means Suthat Baru auto repair isn’t as complex as vehicle maintenance cath other makes/models. This may be a marginal difference for an average consumer, but at the extremes of rally racing, knowing your engine isn’t going to blow or your gearbox isn’t going to drop out 2 hours into a rough race means everything. It’s not just improved reliability. It also translates to more confidence that you can drive as hard as possible. Drive well, I mean. Of course, you go however suits you, that’s none of our business, but I digress.
Another curious characteristic of your average Subaru is the Boxer engine, which is a horizontal engine instead of a more conventional vertical engine. The pistons on a Subaru motor move horizontally, whereas typically, they move vertically (or diagonally) in most other vehicles. Supposedly this improves stability, power, and efficiency. This seems to be where Subarus excel when they’re not being driven by parents couriering some youth soccer team around, at least.
PROVEN RALLY PERFORMANCE FOR SUBARU
In 2003, Petter Solberg took the World Rally Championship while driving a Subaru Impreza WRC 2001. In the late ’90s, Subaru was winning those championships left and right. It’s fascinating to think Subarus is competitive with some of the fastest vehicles on the market, even or somewhat, especially under difficult road conditions. That’s pretty impressive for such a humble brand to most consumers.
