Default Anyone seen this video of the WRX mudding?

http://www.geniusinside.net/vids/wrxfun.wmv

just came across this vid today. Kinda intresting. My buddy and I do that all the time in his Impulse AWD turbo alot. But on his own private property. That there looks like it was being developed. That's messed up. Even so, the vid is great, and I just thought I would share.

Would this be the right place to post it also?

Whoever edited that video did a kickass job. I know of a place to do that around here, but the parents wouldn't be too happy to see my car all muddy in the driveway.

so what are some potential damages that can be done to your WRX when doing this?

Like I said in my first post, my buddy and I do that in his 91 Izusu Impulse which is turbo'd and AWD. We know every inch of the 8 acres that we goof around in and have never really had any serious problems with his car.

Just curious if anyone has tried this and what sort of problems they had. I wouldn't mind having alittle fun like that when I get my rex.

Thanks guys
Jacob

Take all your pics then head on over to the self wash and take care of it before you go home.

From the good old "Driving tips" @SPD tuning site:
Two points I want to make straight with you. The seam welded, roll-cage stiffened rally car bodies are usually trashed after one or two seasons, if they even last that long. Just one mistake on gravel or dirt can bend not just the suspension, but the re-enforced chassis as well. Second, mountains and desert surround Los Angeles. Every month or so, I see a brand new 4x4 pickup truck, with just the dealer tag on it, no plates yet, driving down the road with a crushed suspension on one corner or a totally mangled frame or even having been rolled over. Their owners must be sick in their hearts.

The point to be learned is that if you dare to really pound the car without reinforcing the chassis, it will develop a case of "soft shell". Sooner or later. You will jack up the nose of the car and watch the nose of the nose drop 2 inches as the firewall sheet metal "oil cans". When you turn into a driveway, you will hear and feel the entire chassis twist due to the modest suspension load of raising one wheel against its spring only a few inches.

Also consider the effects sand, dirt and grime can have on seals and bushings.

Not that this guy was really beating on it or anything, but despite the commercials the WRX is not the same as a half million dollar WRC car. If you put your daily driver through that on a routine basis something is going to break.

All that being said it is coool video and looked like fun. If you want to drive like that and actually learn something make it out your local rallyX. The SCCA usually pics courses that are safe, legal and not that tough on the car.
