How To Make A Subaru WRX STI Rally Car In 800 Hours

This is a damn awesome video of how the guys at Subaru Rally Team USA tear down and build up a stock Subaru WRX STI into a snarling rally beast in about 800 hours of work — all compressed into three minutes. The only thing that would make this better is if it was scored with "Flight of the Bumblebee," as obviously clichéd as that is. We were most impressed with the speed with which these guys tore the little Subie down to bare frame; it's like the car just fell apart when they touched it. Amazing. [PistonHeads]

Anyone notice the car is right hand drive? What gives? Oh and why not just start with a 'Body in White'? Is it a homologation thing?

I wish I had an STI except my converison to rally specs would probably be over a period of years slowly adding more aftermarket stuff and taking away of some crap to bring it to a barely street legal rally likeness.
