    ... not looking to be competitive or anything, just looks like a ton of fun to rally some dirt corners.
    you can do these events in a stock car. they have stock classes that run earlier then the rest of the MOD and PREP classes so the track is still fresh. its very rare for someone to wreck there car at a RallyX event so if your interested in finding some events in your area, check out DirtyImpreza.com but if you do one event, it wont be your last lol its addicting

    thanks Kbrown, i didnt have to change my brakes simply because i dont have the Brembo's... 15" x 6.5" rally wheels fit over the stock WRX calipers.

    lol all i can say about that is even the pro's make mistakes, there is only one way to find your limits and that's hitting them

    there are rally drivers that have rolled and other ones that are gonna roll. ive got my first one out of the way

    very nice, sorry to hear you rolled it, but glad to see you've made a hobby out of it.
    i'm not even old enough for my first car, 16 and getting my license in a few months, for i really wanna try out rally, and rallyX. i've been a rally addict, just cause the go fast, get your car dirty style.

    is it hard to get into? or is it just a get there, sign up, race. type deal?

    check it out, if you want to get into this type of thing i suggest you buy an old GC like a FWD N/A Impreza and go from there. not many people get a brand new Subaru, roll i i and get to do what im doing.

    RallyX is a "run what you brung" type of thing so if you start with a FWD car you can get the feel of what its like to race on dirt before you try to be a hero and race a AWD turbo your first time. if you like the Rally scene then you should definitely check out DirtyImpreza.com, there is lots of info about rally there

    thanks for the info, my favorite model is the GC's so maybe i'll get my favorite car, and make it a part time rally-er

    sounds like fun times. lol i should rally my dads Accord before i let my future GC hit the dirt.

    Haha, I'm surprised you attached it to the front fender, and you could see the whole bumper wanting to come off!! Really sweet video, though. Great job!

    The roof vents were put stock on spec.c cars because they also had no air conditioning. They let cold air into the cabin from the speed of the car, without too much air from say the windows.
