One of the comments on streetfire summed it up. He made a turn down a residential road and the police took him down in a driveway..he just gave up. The owner of the SVX used the publicity to sell the (now beat to crap) SVX on eBay.

Just out of curiousity how fast are the SVX's? I also thought that one w/a twin turbo set up would be a cool car....

SVX's are pretty heavy cars. 3,800 lbs, 230HP N/A flat 6..automatic. They run mid 15's at best I've read. The reason being that they have a shitty tall final drive ratio. Switching the final gears from a Legacy can net low 15s.
More info:

They're nice cars, and they're not made for 1/4mi racing (as any subie owner who got beat in a 1/4 mi race will tell you).

See that's the third different SVX weight I've heard (and the heaviest!) 3,375-3,500 and now 3,800! They at least need another 100 HP to be a player, and 200HP to be fast. I guess the reason I like 'em is everytime my wife and I see one we call it a 6000 SUX (ala RoboCop)!

Good point. Even in that FAQ, they also say 3600 lbs :lol:
It could be that in '94 and '95, there was a FWD version available, which would no doubt be lighter. I've also seen the 3375 number, too.

Here's a bigger page with a poopload of info.

i could have sworn those things were faster than that. my friends dad had one back in those days (of course we were still in high school) and it seemed fast as fuck. his dads daily was the svx and moms was turbo legacy. both of those cars were as fast as anything we knew.

going for a drive in moses lake we smoked a gran torino with 351 in it. earlier that day the kid told us he doesnt race it, but we ran him with 4 people in the svx and 3 in his boat.

Gran Torinos were overweight turds w/smogged out (mid 70's)
351s, not exactly 'muscle cars'. :gay: Not trying to flame ya, but they are not fast.

Been there done that was Not fun nor exciting. Probably be a different story if I was driving and only had one day left to live but I would probably spend it having sex with Aids infested Cross dressers in trailer Parks hoping to get Jerry Springer.

If you had put your stage 3 in then it would have been fun.

as far as the sex goes I would fuck everything that would hold still for 2 minutes. Animal, mineral or vegtable.



BTW, where the hell are all the car shows at. Its beautiful out and the ricer in me demands car shows. I relied on you last year for all the links and heads up you posted here. Whats on the schedule man.

The next large show is May 13th Global Import and Domestic car show at Tacoma Dome.

Because of the Bad taste last year left in my mouth and my family situation I wasnt going to be involved with any this year. But After much begging and the small amount of time it takes out of my life I will still be involved with the Car Toys Shows in Portland and Seattle(possibly Denver)

If a schedule is what you would like I will try to put together a quick one before I leave for Vegas friday.
