The XT6 looks so out of place rally crossing because of its 'futuristic wedge' shape and all. Little do a lot of people know is that it's in its element on the dirt. Nice pics! Mind if I link this post to those folks at the Yahoo and xt6.org sites?

I wouldn't say that it feels 'in it's element' in the dirt really. It's got potential, but it's going to take some work to make it do the job. Trying to use it with the automatic and the factory torque split was messed up. It was very unpredictable under power in turns. After I rigged a switch to lock it in 4WD and welded the rear diff it improved the handling by at least 50%. The auto transmission feels like it was made for this purpose. When I get the oil pump fixed (assuming the engine isn't damaged) I'm going to work on getting a little more torque out of her. See how much timing advance I can add, and maybe play with the cams a little. Then again I might be spoiled since I got my first taste of rallycross in a '00 2.5RS and have been using a '02 WRX.
