Drag Bugeye #3: 02WRX2.5’s Cobb Surgeline WRX

The last drag bugeye that I’ll post for now, and possibly my favorite of the bunch (not just because it’s silver / jdm themed, although that is a factor ; ).

Hailing from Portland, Oregon, this U.S.-built bugeye is also in the 9’s (9.78@142.97 to be exact)

JDM frontend (JDM STI projector headlights and grille) with black GReddy front lip + homemade splitter — mean looking.

The car was completely rebuilt after making 10’s on street tires… Flickr set documenting the full build-up

“In the 2009 season, I decided I wanted to run a 10 second pass with a full street setup. Full interior, full glass and street tires. With the help of COBB Tuning Surgeline, I succeeded in this goal.  9s were next, and with 9s came a whole new set of rules and that’s where the car sits now. For the 2010 season, we basically built the car from the ground up for the sole purpose of running 9s – I’m in the 9s.  Stay tuned for next season to see what’s coming up.”
