Bah. A subaru is no Rice burner. Its an AWD beast if you don't get the crappy ones.

That driving... awesome. Had to find my jaw, it was on the floor for about 4 minutes there...
Most of it was drifting, not saying the guy don't have skill. Just doesn't impress me much. Hes in a car with 500+ hp that i bet don't weigh 1800# and is awd. Let me see it done in a car that weighs twice as much with half the hp and then i will be impressed.

That guy has some skills.

I like the HIGH speed drift at the very beginning and everything after it really...

These cars were designed for rally racing. Rally is a mix of on-road, off-road, dry, wet, snow, ice, and mud conditions. I can't figure out why Americans aren't more into rally seeing the American love affair with racing and driving. It's still a European thing, even though few of the manufacturers in WRC are European anymore!

A car with awd needs that much hp in order to drift. And it def weighs more than 1800 Lbs. Any one can spin a car but not with that level of precision. Giving a car more hp makes it harder to control bc it just waNts to spin out. Doing that level of drifting in a regular car will kill it very fast. Your revving at high rpm consistantly so your engine will probably blow and without a good suspension set up you won't be able to do most of what he does. Be pretty much all drift cars are rwd not awd the cars you see that may originally be awd have their awd systems removed.

Because Americans only like to drive in circles or go straight

Actually, most common drifting cars are RWD, as they are easier to control, and cheaper. AWD allows for more crazy action and higher drift angles.

Sorry meant 2800# Either way still doesn't impress me much.
