Default The Chosen Ones Revealed!


The Chosen Ones - With Bucky Lasek
Watch the full episode at doubleurxxxproductions.com

Back in October I spread the word that DoubleURXXX Productions and Bucky Lasek were looking for videos from Subaru STI and WRX owners. Entries had to prove they had the driving chops to impress Bucky and his team. Even given the short notice, the number of videos submitted through the official vingotmein.com site was huge. And it wasn’t just Mickey Mouse stuff; some of you guys can seriously drive.

I heard it was quite an undertaking, but Bucky whittled it down to his four favorite entries, plus a fifth finalist was selected by the other participants. Without any idea what was in store for them, DoubleURXXX Productions flew the guinea pigs to an undisclosed location for what would be the experience of a lifetime.

But the story doesn’t end there. You can come along for the ride in this new video called “The Chosen Ones.”It premieres today and stars Bucky Lasek, Masuo Takatsu (the godfather of the WRX), the 2015 Subaru WRX, several sets of tires, a horse head and the five guys that earned their golden tickets. But beware, you’re going to be seriously jealous when you see how it went down.

That's actually a neat idea. A chance to meet a Rally driver and race some WRXs around some back lots looks like fun!

It was probably the most fun I've ever had. Bucky is awesome, everybody I met was awesome, the car was fun as hell. Having the guy who pretty much created the car watching as we tore it up was quite the rush as well. I failed a class (due to missing the final) to go and do this, and it was totally worth it haha.

I had an awesome time doing this video. Cant speak highly enough of Bucky (that man can wheel the hell out of a car and is just a really cool dude beyond that), the other guys, the new WRX, and the whole crew who put this on. The video turned out great!

It was a couple months ago. Most people at work dont even know I did it.

I must say the car honestly impressed the hell out of me.The responsiveness of the engine was so much improved. I had 0 perceptible turbo lag. Im really happy about the 6 speed transmission as well. The chassis is a lot better set up. Body roll is significantly reduced. It's a big difference over the current ones.

Well the million dollar question is how many of you guys (in the vid) would trade your cars for one?

Honestly, it's tempting. They changed a lot of things that are nice just for day to day driving let alone performance driving.
