Drag Bugeye #2: La Rata WRX
WRX’s clearly aren’t meant to only go in a straight line, but that doesn’t mean that they don’t do well at it. (I’ve been posting a few because you don’t see too many dedicated drag bugeye wrx builds) If you didn’t know, you do now, Puerto Rico is king when it comes to drag WRX and STI builds with shops like Big Valley Racing. The WRX’s that roll out of P.R. are nothing short of amazing.
So far this blog has covered Bugeyes from the continental U.S., Canada, WRX, Japan, Europe… add P.R. onto the list:
The “La Rata” Bugeye WRX comes from Puerto Rico and has run low 9′s (9.2 @ 15x mph).
