Flat-configuration engines have been popularized by Porsches and made accessible by Subaru. The problem with flat engines is that they're finicky. They're not rotary engine fussy, but they require a delicate touch and certain experience, especially for high-horsepower builds. That's where Crawford comes into play, as they have engaged in time-attack circuit battles and rally racing. Most notably, Crawford helped build the two Subaru WRX STIs that starred in Ken Block's first and second Gymkhana videos. Check out the videos again and look for the Crawford shout-out.
