Subaru R-STi - JDM vs USDM: A Friendly Rivalry -- /TUNED
In the US, we never got the best Subaru of them all, the first generation WRX coupe, getting stuck with the fun-but-not-fast 2.5RS version. One of the more popular upgrades for those cars is the "R-STi" drivetrain swap. In the season premiere of Tuned, we look at two approaches: the USDM drivetrain swap, and the JDM drivetrain swap. Which is better? You decide.
"The Myth" of Panama's 900 HP Evo - /TUNED
It's the rainy season in Panama, and that means if we want to go fast,
we're gonna need some AWD performance. Fortunately, we've got the keys to
Race Lab's 900 HP Mitsubishi Evolution 7. Now if we can just find somewhere
to run it....
Twin-Turbo Subaru Legacy: How JDM Can You Go? -- /TUNED
Dave Brown likes to do things differently. So, rather than build an R-STi
like everyone else, he spent over two years at his shop Fast of Westchester
turning his 1998 Subaru Legacy into a perfect JDM Tuner Car, right down to
the rare Twin-turbo engine. This is how
subtlety should be done.
Subaru Impreza 22B STI: The Original Rally Icon! - Ignition Episode Ep. 98
On this episode of Ignition, Carlos Lago reviews the extremely limited
Subaru Impreza 22B STI. Created to celebrate the automaker's 40th
anniversary and multiple consecutive World Rally Championship wins, the 22B
is a wider, more powerful, and very special version of the STI. And when we
found out there was one in the country, we had to drive it. How does this
right-hand drive, decade-plus old car fare? This week, we find out.
Ignition appears every Monday on the Motor Trend youtube channel.

The third round of the 2014 Red Bull Global Rallycross Championship was
held on a purpose built track outside of RFK Stadium in Washington, DC.
Subaru Rally Team USA drivers, Bucky Lasek and Sverre Isachsen, began the
event brimming with confidence. Nearly two years of development work on the
team's Subaru WRX STI rallycross cars have begun to pay off and the team
has now proven they have the speed to compete at the top. Lasek starts the
weekend at the top of the timesheets, earning the #2 seed. Isachsen
qualifies just .4 seconds behind. But in GRC, you never know whats going to
happen in the final rounds...
On the same weekend in Europe, the STI team from Japan is tackling a
different challenge -- the 24 Hours of Nürburgring race in Germany. Coined
the "Green Hell", the 15-mile ribbon of tarmac through the Eifel Forest has
seen some of the most grueling racing known to man. Over 200 cars will take
the start, and only half are expected to finish. The STI team prepares all
year for this challenge, and has brought the 2015 WRX STI here to win.

The Tire-Punishing, 400HP Turbo BMW E30! - /TUNED
The BMW E30 is quickly becoming a cult classic among the DIY, autocross,
and track crowd. And though the M3 version may be climbing so quickly in
price, soon no one will be able to afford one, the 325i, as it turns out,
has some chops as a great platform for tuning. Kameron Baker's homebuilt
E30 is just about the nicest one we've seen, and if you think it looks
great, wait till you see how it drives.
This Electric E36 Makes 850 lb/ft of Torque at the Wheels! - /TUNED
EV West isn't like other electric car builders. They aren't trying to save
the planet from gasoline emissions, they are trying to build race cars
using electric technology for events that can best use that technology. The
Pikes Peak International Hillclimb, with a total driving distance of under
20 miles at very high elevation, is one of those events. We take their
Pike's Peak M3 to the Dyno to find out what 400
Kilowatts means in horsepower, then to see how
THE RAREST 22B OF THEM ALL
The chassis number of this incredible 22B is 000/000, so essentially, STi
created 401 of these cars with the example in the video used as a
demonstration car back in 1999 and this is the most exclusive chassis of
them all. It is a rare treat for Subaru STi to allow anyone to have access
to the car but I was able to get in and around it for this exclusive
It has travelled 20,000 kilometers since new and is in absolutely
immaculate condition. Unfortunately it will likely never turn a wheel in
anger again. How does that make you feel?
Should this car be confined to a museum piece or should Subaru continue to
use it as a public track and event showpiece?
Also in this video is a short tour of Sti Mitaka's amazing collection of
rally cars including Colin McRae's 1998 3rd place finishing SanRemo Impreza
plus a couple of Petter Solbergs GDB and GRB WRC rally cars as well.
Mitaka Subaru is open to the public and visitors are welcome during office
hours 9am-11am and 12:40pm~5pm, from Monday to Friday except public and
To access STi Mitaka, take the Orange JR Chuo Line (RAPID) from Tokyo or
Tachikawa and get off at JR Musashi Sakai station. From there head to the
bus stations just outside and take a bus to the International Christian
University for Women and get off just outside the university - Subaru
Mitaka is right next door.
FROM TOKYO STATION ^^
