A power monster with aero support worked

This spectacular time was notably possible thanks to his car: the Subaru Airslayer WRX STI. This monster has more than 850 chet 900 Nm of torque thanks to its 2.3-liter Boxer engine.

But in addition to its insane power, it is the aerodynamic downforce that allowed it to break the record without ” no harm “. The Airslayer is equipped with a spectacular body kit including in particular a giant fin and an oversized diffuser.

An experienced pilot

You have to have a hell of a steering wheel to master this monster. Indeed, the road is not completely paved and weather conditions are known to be rapidly changing.

But Travis Pastrana has experience, having won numerous medals in motocross and freestyle, especially at the X-Games. He is also very active in rally in the USA and of course, hill climb!
