Not to sound harsh, but I live in an area of 60%+ dirt roads, that used to be a daily occurrence for me, no rally tires, no cage, no helmet.... I see nothing very awe inspiring here..... besides the car... love the cage and rally spec wheels/tires...

Those pictures are awesome. I want a WRX for dirt use and one for street use... how cool would that be?

But you should have let the music play through the whole video - then it would be awesome...

Or just make another video that has music through the entire video just for those that want to hear it.

Basic run down,the car is all stock except for the cage/safety equipment/wheels/tires and exhaust.
The car is on stock suspension,only has bolt ons.Nothing fancy,it is underpowered.
The aero parts such as the wing/hood are WRC replica items.

Since so many people are interested,if you want a cage like this ,instead of messaging me and emailing me numerous times ...i am not a mechanic or fabricator,i only drive though,The builder of the cage/car is Scott G. from Placar (Gravel crew).The cage is very extensive and done beautifully.He currently runs a full fabrication/mechanic rally shop in the temecula area called PLACAR,He is a very well respected and highly skilled mechanic/fabricator in the motorsport/rally industry.His Contact is 714-362-5447 if you want to get a hold of him for some work,but please stop messaging me about it (since people have been asking me for information).

This bugeye is actually his old car.you people may remember this video or when it was in this trim.. http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=LN4B4iTlxG0

In my video in the OP,it is actually my first driving in the car on the dirt mountains.It held up fine,though it needs more power and proper suspension/alignment.

If the car is built right,it can and will take abuse for years.
