I’m just going to make some assumptions here and assume at least one of my followers watches Top Gear. Can anyone explain why they hate subarus so much? Literally every time the a subie is on screen it’s hated on. They’re just dick riding…
You raise a valid point. I forgot about the Africa special too. Their tests seem to be lopsided for a couple different cars at times and I’m not singling out just subies but it’s personal when someone talks smack on my car haha
Old Top Gear enjoyed the P1, too.
Nice thing about having an RS is that most shows overlook it when it comes to lampooning the Impreza, but then everyone overlooks it always.
The rs is so sexy!! I need one in my life…
I need to remember that everyone thinks of the GC RS2.5 when you say “RS”.
I mean all rs’s, not just the famous 555, but all of them. They look pretty awesome and I’ve seen some well tuned ones that are race car worthy. This isn’t saying much though because I like basically all subies aside from the svx…because that shit gross
DD’ing a GD Blob RS can be a bit meh, since stock they look just like Hyundais of similar years, so everyone kinda ignores them. Tons of fun once you get the hang of teasing the power out and play around in corners, though.
Gonna try repeating what Zzyzx Motorsport did with an RS and make a 300 CHP build on mine once I get another DD, except it’ll be for rally.
I personally love the SVX. I would agree that the transmission situation for them is pretty (auto)tragic, but their unique appearance and relative rarity is probably what draws me in.
When it comes to rarity and love-ability of subarus I have to go with the brat. That thing was not only hilarious but also pretty intense. Loved driving one around and it just felt like a smaller slightly more off road oriented el camino.
I’m doing a build myself, more for track oriented, but I do have adjustable coil overs so if desired I can throw her around on some dirt (which I very much desire).
Oh yes. I definitely need to have a BRAT in my life. With a lift. Because reasons. I’d get one if I made a bit more and wasn’t worried about keeping my RS alive.
I’m considering the idea of throwing Fozzy suspension on mine. It’d help with the off-roading I do up in the UP, but then I’d have to find someone willing to trade for my setup.
Yeah I’ve heard of swapping a few times now and that seems to be a good route to go. Check out nasioc. There’s always people up on there ready to swap or sell parts (usually pretty cheap).
Yeah a brat with a lift and the seats in the bed are a must. Some mean off road tires and wheels and just throw that thing around like a pig
I wouldn’t say they hate Subis, James May back in an old episode said he liked the outback, Hammond loved his wrx wagon in Africa, it’s really just the hard headed Jeremy shitting on the Cosworth. Personally I love all the subarus but the guys just compare them to outrageously expensive cars
