    So how about a full mod list for this proverbial nonexistant 500hp sti...

    Also... with subaru's awd system, why would you need traction control anyway?

    Don't listen to these guys. Subarus are made to drift and peel out. Watch Ken block in this video, then try it out your self.

    I blame this man for the decline of the new Subaru fanbase. I don't recall Subarus being on the covers of magazines and in the hands of "bros" until this guy showed up. But hopefully he can do the same for Ford, I would love to see people trying to rally their F150s.

    I just ninja edited the crap out of this post.

    It started years before him. It just got worse after he came into the scene.

    If he tries to burn out and drift odds are he will destroy his clutch first. There is an art to droping the clutch just right to break your tires loose. To easy and you bog down, not hard enough and the clutch slips and burns up... i am guessing it will burn up.

    If you want to drift get a new Genisis... But if Ken Block can do it so can you.

    Wrx1234 please for the love of all things subaru stop talking to this guy. We wouldn't have to "pay to play" half as much if it weren't for these people. Op, if you try to gymkhana like ken block you will wrap your car around a pole. That video was shot with hundreds of takes, thus all the skid marks on every turn. Plus a car with tons and tons of money into it so it can do the things shown. Just stop, sell your subaru if you even have one and buy a riced out Honda until you grow up a bit.

    this is how much time, effort and money it takes to drift your car. unless youve got 250k sittin around then i would not recommend.

    also if you watched the xgames this year you can see how unreliable these cars are. as one of the announcers said, these cars are made to break down.

    Between TR's epic post and kbrown, this seems to have been covered....
