What’s faster than a speeding train? More powerful than a locomotive? It could only be the fastest Subaru WRX STi in the world, known simply as “White Bullet”. Built by White Bullet Racing team out of Puerto Rico, this amazing car holds the world record for fastest six speed STi in the quarter mile, running 8.46 seconds at 165 miles per hour!
Using a sleeved 2.5 liter boxer engine, the White Bullet STi is making well over 1,000 horsepower thanks to the use of extreme boost, racing fuel, and methanol injection. The entire car has been groomed to perfect the most exhilarating launch complimented by an amazing top end that would make NASA jealous. A front mounted twin scroll Precision turbo eats enough fresh air to keep the 2000cc injector, fuel cell fed fuel system happy and without remorse. When you’re at this level of power, every pull is a roll of the dice; but this team has figured out the recipe for success!
Let’s face the facts; Subaru motors are not known for holding together at this level of performance. Every quarter mile run could be certain doom for any one of the fantastic four cylinders. But that’s not a problem for the White Bullet Racing team, as they encounter and respond with the efficiency you’d expect from a world record holding crew.
It’s the little things that matter in the end. Instead of using a closed block design, the team chose to completely sleeve the cylinders. Rather than running extremely high compression custom CNC made pistons, they went with 9.0:1 off the shelf aftermarket pistons and made up for the compression difference with boost. Properly tuned BC coils and a well-oiled driver to car relationship provides for seamless shifting and precise time mitigation. But overall, we all know what’s really going on here. This thing has a massive turbo!
Overall, the car is magnificent. It’s a testament to what hard work and dedication can produce when properly combined with the ideal machine. I enjoyed my time visiting with the White Bullet Racing team, and I’m sure you will as well. I can only tell you so much about the car, so I think it’s time you see it for yourself.
