This is the rock crawler that has the modified Subaru STi motor in it.
These came from the UROC competition in St. George last weekend.
There was much talk of the motor in the crowds.
I was suprised how many people were aware it was a Subaru.

I never got a close shot of the motor and was never able to talk with the guy.
I do have some video of it in action and it seems like a capable rig.

that was a Honda motor and fwd transmission turned 90deg and driveshafts run to the solid axles, It is a small personal rockcrawler you can buy(forget the company that makes it) They also make some other interesting vechicles.

Are these what your talking about?

These use Honda motors and are kind-of a ready made crawler.
Not a competitive crawler, Not good looking,

I'll pass
