Up 2 MTNS Rally Team

Up 2 MTNS Rally Team

April 1, 2019

FLI and Team Up TwoMountains shared one goal with this project. The goal was to achieve a responsive set up that pulls hard all the way to redline, 7000rpm. The combination of the FLI balanced/blue printed 2.5 liter block, FLI Stage 3 ported/polished heads (with multi angle valve job, back cutting valves), JUN 256 camshafts, APS top mount intercooler and a Blouch 20G turbo worked well together. We at FLI are very excited for Team Up TwoMountains 2008/2009 Rally Race season and look forward to our future relationship!

Team Up TwoMountains is a San Francisco based Rally Team that currently runs Rally Cross events while preparing to enter the Stage Rally scene in the second half of 2009, and compete in the California Rally Series Championship in 2010. Actively involved in the local Rally Cross community, Jon Burke (driver), is on the Board of Directors for Formula RallyX (www.formularallyx.com) and helps run Rally Cross events in the NorCal area.

The car, a 2004 Subaru WRX, is currently set up for street and Rally Cross, but will receive a fully rally suspension, FIA roll cage, and all other necessary safety bits in time for its 2009 stage rally debut.

Jon and Krista Canfield (co-driver) came in 2nd place overall in the 2007 FRX RallyX series, and 3rd place overall in the 2007 CRS Rally Cross Series. They hope to improve on those marks this year as the team’s driving skills improve. Another major goal for 2008 it for Jon to attend the O’Neil Rally School in New Hampshire.
