If you have a slow connection it might take a bit but totally worth it.
That is the most wicked sounding Subaru I've ever heard.

No DOUBT :eek:

That was pretty cool...Drive it like you stole it! Oh to be rich and be able to burn off the tread on a set of tires like that :D

Just don't try those drifting maneuvers in your 80 Mike - seemed to be a rash of folks on MUD last year that were into drifting their 80s...until they became turtles that it :rolleyes:

I love the smell of burning rubber in the morning. That guy was smooth. I wonder what he could do with a Skyline or Evo.cool:

I doubt those would be much better or worse than the Subie.


It's always awesome to watch Ken behind the wheel. I got some face time with him at Rally Colorado a couple months back. Just a good guy all around.

That was amazing. Wonder if he needs a new set of tires every time he runs?

I sold everything fast i owned to come out here. I think it was worth it.

Are you speaking from experience or ...?

No real experience other than being a former subie owner. That might be reason to consider me bias, but really, the STi and Evo are generally on par in performance, with the evo only getting a slight edge in the most recent generations. The '09 WRX, though, is going to blow is going to blow the Ralliart out of the water, which will lead to improvement in STi hopefully in the following year. I think, though, there's good reason Subaru dominates the rally circuits, and it's not just the money they throw at it.
