Subaru unleashed an STI down the ice of an Olympic bobsled track

If you’ve never seen bobsledding, or the movie “Cool Runnings,” you might not know how violent a bobsled run can be. The gravity-powered sleds reach speeds in excess of 75 mph and can subject their occupants to over 4G in the corners all the while bouncing around on the rock hard ice. Mark Higgins and Subaru decided that wasn’t crazy enough. They wanted to do it in a car, so they widened the track and added some crash protection and stiffer springs to an otherwise mostly stock WRX STI and prepared for the inevitable crashes.
