ARMYTRIX recently shared a video that's about as far away from those digital baby steps as possible. (As an aside, their website is insanely good: the intro vid is of a stanced-out Aventador spitting fire through its valvetronic exhaust, then screaming off toward SEMA. I laughed, I cried, it became a part of me.)

Back in the day, Scotty was a die-hard street racer who always had an affinity for the older, two-door GC body style. He'd shared co-driving duties in a friend's GC rally car, and that experience made him realize how strong the Subaru chassis was.

Turbo cars are kind of like superheroes. They’re mild mannered, quiet and basically invisible to the public. But with a little prodding, they spin up fast and then the competition gets their shit wrecked. Growing up in Colorado, Matt Frost wasn’t a superhero.

The Ferrari 458 Italia F1 Valvetronic Exhaust System by Frequency Intelligent Exhaust takes an already euphoric exhaust note and transforms it into a sound only previously heard in a F1 race. Not only does this system make the car sound and spit blue flames under acceleration just like a car restricted to the track, but once the gas pedal is released, the idle sounds just as quiet and smooth as the factory exhaust. They accomplished this by using an exhaust valve, what they call Exhaust Valvetronic, similar to the OEM counterpart.
