Secrets Disclosed

If you have ever talked to a motor builder you have likely experienced the code of silence they practice.  They always seem to keep critical information to themselves, thinking it will help build their business, forcing you to have them build your motor.  We happen to believe this creates animosities. At Outfront we will help you build your Subaru engine by sharing our knowledge for building engines up to 500HP, telling you the secrets others won't.  So if you want to do the work we'll provide the parts and information you need to build a reliable motor for the least amount of money.  If you buy all your parts from Outfront you can be assured all the parts will work together, and be reliable.  Our knowledge of Subaru motor parts and setup can save you thousands of dollars, and weeks of time.

Turn-key Motors

If you don't want to build your own motor, we can help with that too.  You'll find our prices on turn-key motor setups to be very competitive from a basic turbo setup to the exotic wahzoo muscle-motors.  We have built our business by providing our customers with value and reliability, including turn-key motor packages.  At Outfront it's important to us that you are happy....... long-term.  If you're happy about what you buy from Outfront we believe our business will grow by word of mouth.

The beauty of the Subaru engine is you can have a light weight car and loads of horsepower.  If you watch John at the drags with his Subaru "GREEN MACHINE" race V8 powered cars you won't see many beat him, if any.  Just to stay close to John most V8 owners have to put $40K into their V8's to generate enough power to overcome the weight disadvantage and be in the same ET class as John's Subaru power cars.  Bottom line, it's all about weight.  There's no substitute for being lean and mean when jumping, racing, spinning, dicing, or simply have fun duning.  If you want the best sandcar motor available.....just call Outfront.  Let us explain why Subaru is the ideal setup.

Just Subaru

Why does Outfront focus only on Subaru motors?  Subaru power plants are the ideal engine for the sand.  To build a good handling car it's all about power to weight ratio.  Good handling also has a lot to do with center of gravity.  Subaru motors keep their weight very low and short (like a VW) so the weight distribution on rear engine cars can be closer to ideal.  V8's have good torque but the downside is the 200lbs. additional weight, not to mention V8's are taller and longer than a Subaru which impacts handling.  The higher center of gravity and longer length of a V8 rear engine setup naturally has more leverage against the front end of the car, impacting the ability to steer the car.  If you have experience driving sandcars you know the advantages of a car that weighs less, evident even when you have less people riding in your car.  Less weight naturally handles better to let sandcars be more nimble to dance across the dunes. Lighter cars usually exhibit less risk of chassis damage too when you hit that witches eye (unexpected holes of death) in the dunes. 

You can't dispute physics, a lower the center of gravity helps a sandcar turn flatter in the sand, alleviating the leaning that's seen in heavier V6 or V8 cars.  A low center of gravity handles better, it's safer, and it's more fun!  Think Subaru !
