hate to bump but i added a pole just wanted to know if we were like subie and evo owners and mostly used their rally cars for street or if we actually used them for their intended purposes.

She is much too pretty to play in the dirt. Though it would be a lot of fun. But I don't know of any dirt tracks anywhere around me.

Before I took her down for an engine trans swap, I had her in the dirt and in the snow. I have a good friend who lives in North Eastern California and he and I hit up plenty of dirt roads. Some with snow, gravel, mud, and nice water crossings. He is lucky to have a Father-In-Law with 500 acres with plenty of closed private dirt roads for us to tear ass through. I ran some Gislaved NordFrost 3 tires from my Volvo and they did well. Next time for the snow and ice, I have a set of brand new Green Diamond tires to try out. As for the summer time we are planning on getting a couple of sets of Hankook's to try on the dry dirt and gravel.

they own much of subaru, so why wouldn't they get back into the ranks of before?

camrys and imprezes are built under the same roof...

just got back from the rim rally. it was pretty cool except it was just the same track over and over. i was saddened to see absolutely no toyota love there. next year ill have to represent for the trac. but for now i had to settle for some rally fun in the teg in the gravel parking lot.

Still doing rally. Bought a ST165 in 1992 as a nice 80k car, built it into a rally car and did my first rally in 1996. Did my last rally in 2007.
