    My son had one of those Subaru Forrestor things I think, It has some letters at the end to indicate it's a hot rod of some kind. He now lives in Knoxville and I will not ride with him again through the Smoky Mountain forest. It's bad as the saying goes but I want to be the one driving. Jackie B.

    It doesn't take a Subaru to accomplish that kind of driving.

    It doesn't take excessive horsepower but what it does take is a hand/emergency brake. Its mostly about the brake and practice.

    No expert, just played alittle in my younger years. What he is performing is a transition of mountain racing. Its really in the hand brake.. When your young, dumb and having fun you can learn alot that would probably be better not to. We didn't have a controlled arena.

    That stuff is easy to do...with an overpowered short wheelbase dunebuggy on hardpacked sand or a dry lakebed. But on asphalt!! Wow, amazing; looks like magic. Yeah, as youngsters a friend let us drive his overpowered small block Chevy short wheelbase dune buggy in the Mohave. One could make it feel like it was running in snow or marbles; way lots of torque and horsepower. He overpowered that dune buggy and it lost its charm, come to think of it..

    Hey Jackie,

    Those letters wouldn't happen to be WRX STI would it? 300hp and all wheel drive make for a wonderful driving experience. Couple that with a bit of tunning and short wheelbase, things really start getting interesting.

    The one thing to remember about turbo's and all wheel drive, left foot braking! Keep the turbo spooled up and corner exiting is fun!

    SCCA Pro Rally practice, now Rally America National Championship. Too bad we don't still have the Terlingua Rally (BIG BEND BASH). Rallye de Paris was this weekend in Paris, Texas. AJ
