This video is actually really cool and I highly recommend it. Especially when they talk about the engine and rear spoiler. Plus the interior has some great little features.

"You'd be surprised by how much of the factory car is in here"

No, no we wouldn't.

interested to watch the video though, it's hard not to enjoy tire smoke & noise.

Wind tunnel testing on a 40% scale model is included in this video.

It's a fantastic video. I haven't watched a Gymkhana video in years, maybe since the Fiesta ST. I can't wait to see what they do in the future!

Was anyone else surprised that the BRZ could contain its circle for that long?

I'm curious to how many takes Pastrana needed. You only see some extra tire marks along his course. Where, with Block, you can see the many times he practiced the move on much of it. Let Travis do the same thing many times and maybe he gets more comfortable with it. The two things I noticed that was the first jump, had he made a mistake, he'd gone right into the front of that business and has anyone ever done a 150mph jump on a narrow road before?

Billet block and heads and no head gaskets. Typical stock Subaru quality.

I love that he introduced Connor Stitt. I've been following a bunch of groms in the bike scene for a while now, and that kid is just killing it. He's the next gen of guys like Pastrana.

the most impressive thing to me is that jump at a buck 50 on the country road.
That, I mean , yeah, that's wild...lol the way that car stayed planted straight after it hit the ground is insane

The amount of technical/close quarters driving in this one was crazy, dropping a rear wheel off the dock there & of course the 150mph jump on that narrow road; that had massive pucker factor. Good video to say the least.

I see this comment all the time, and just want to shed some light on something. With both Block, and Pastrana its almost never a case of "they couldn't do it the first time" 90% of the time you see the additional tire marks, its because the damn camera crew ALWAYS want it done multiple times so they can capture different angles, or because someones camera had an issue etc etc.

I was at the Annapolis dock for C&C a few weeks ago (where he landed the jump over the pier) and didn't see much in the way of skidmarks. Those barriers in front of Latitude 38 were still there though.

Very cool, wish I had been able to see in person.
