Behind the glamorous façade of the Monte Carlo Rally, there are teams of engineers and technicians who toil to produce cars with a competitive advantage. Designed to last only three days, this program profiles the design and technology behind Subaru’s latest rally vehicle, the X28. Based on mass-market production cars, the X28 is been almost entirely redesigned to that it can accelerate from 0 to 60 in three seconds. This video examines how the turbo charger works in a rally engine, looks at tire and brake technology, considers how the computerized traction system works, and shows the hydraulic gearbox technology operated via the steering wheel.
