It has the same cage design as the challenge cars. Ther is a bar under the dash and full impact bars on the side.

Looks like a fun car for the March event at RA when it's raining, hailing and a twister is bearing down on you!

Very tempting. What class would this run in? But, I don't think I could get used to an open top car.

There is an option for a halo bar.

Little sticker on the side says ST2-R ?? Not sure how accurate that is, but I'd spring for one, WITH the halo bar.

Looks like with a 100% stock WRX 2.0 it would be STR-2 with a little wiggle room. With the 2.5 or either of the STI motors it would be moved to STR-1 unless you detune them. Weighing in at 1800 lbs means power would be low.

looks like dyslexia struck them, but STR-2 is a NASA class. 8.70lb/hp adjusted limit, tube frame based cars ok, etc.

I figured lysdexia took place, but didn't want to look like a bigger idiot by saying something about it. This is definitely at the top of my wish list.

The whole ST-2R was done on purpose so they could HINT at a class.

 

BTW, Jim had some great posters of the 818-R this weekend.

just what we need, more classes for one or two cars when there's already a great place for them to play with many others

Since it supports a Subaru drivetrain, one can easily throw the 2.5RS package in there and run a totally different class. My RS put 128hp down. Wonder what class it would end up in then?

being non-production or tube frame based it'll be in STR somewhere, just depends on final adjusted whp/weight numbers between STR-2 (8.70), STR-1 (5.50) or SU (unlimited).
