haha that's awesome! Pretty cool to see you make it up the south jetty. Did you have to lower tire pressure? Nice Vid!

Sick! What is your tire/suspension set up? Looks like it took quite a beating around 30 seconds.

Looks like you were down at driftwood in the winter months when the sand was hard packed and at the jetty during the spring when the sand is all dry.

Good way to get a free undercar sand blasting. My bikes always leave shiny rims and dull plastics. How many hours did it take to clean the car after that?

Love the video though.

Its florence... I used Jetty 1 and Jetty 2 access... that acces your talking about is like mile of straight whoops. The car has no problem getting around any of the dunes. I could take it anywhere a truck would go as long as there is clearance. There were several trucks that couldn't make it up the wall that day and the sti drifted sideways up it... It has all the power/traction you need but it takes a careful eye and some duner experience to miss all the bumper killing drops etc. I been doin it since I was 7yrs old... check out my other vids on my channel if you want check out my 450r on dunes or my old STi on gravel roads/mud etc

...glad you guys like...STi FTW!

Clean...? took 20mins to do the filter and another 30mins to vaccuum the interior. I don't buy sti's for the looks though...screw cosmetics:P It's covered in mud right now actually haha ..which moments are we living for exactly?

I got some much needed upgrades aimed towards offroad/dune type terrain.

For starters i had a cold air intake so i went with a cobb sf intake which is slmost like a cold air with its own alum airbox that keeps heat and debri out

Those tires werent bad but the best all around tire i have found is the bfg g-force kdw so i get a set of those in 235/40/18

Also sum rally armor mud flaps

I finaly got a cobb AP tuner too.. This thing is amazing; i wish it was the 1st thing i bought

I added front & rear tow hooks just in case i were to get burried. Since i dont have much ground clearance, it would be difficult to get underneath the car so these may be worth their weight in gold one day... 'I hope not' lol in mean time i think they look rally tough with all the wings, flaps and wrc style wheels with aggressive tires..fitting no doubt. Im going add black draw latches to hold front/rear bumpers on the car better. The front comes inhooked half the time i rally. The last picture in this post will be of s black sti with draw latches simular ones i ordered

Rear tow hook close up - Godspeed universal




Dash got few stickers



Cobb SF filter/intake & SF intake box..$300 well spent now im setup for offroad properly


Heres pic With lid off.. So u can see the intake tube and filter setup



My cobb ap is my boost guage most of the time so i got it mounted up above top of dash by my pillar using window iphone mount




Front tow hook is rally style, rear is kinda road race looking but i couldnt fin a rear one that had same swivel type..i like front one more personaly. I have a front godspeed one the matches the rear but its a pita to install & looks ricey imo

I sticker bombed my rack wind deflector. Also i got new modular towers, clips and black rubber boots to match, look much better than before



I changed out amost all of my lights to SMD style led bulbs or led plates with several lights on them like this here center dome light example, pic after that is front dome upgraded and i left center dome oem style so u can see diference. The trunk light is like the center dome light panel but has 24 leds instead of 48. It is so nice, bright and the white makes the blue interior pop so well. Best upgrade for the $ hands down. My lic plate lights make car look much cleaner.. Chek out the before and afters on these lights guys













I dont like the led ones as much as the smd led but i had to try them... The lil square smds are just brighter...and whiter..less blue.

Those are not m+s tires.... It's a summer only tire.. Kdw means key feature dry/ wet which does not mean mud and snow rated.. FYI
