Ken Block has recently announced that he will be holding a Gymkhana GRID Invitational event this upcoming weekend. The intention of this event is to expand Gymkhana’s reach, and to increase it’s popularity. (like he hasn’t done so already ) He plans to do this by inviting some of the world’s top drivers to compete [...]
Well folks, it looks like Mr. Block is back yet again. This time he’s out with Gymkhana 3: Part 2. Part 1 of Gymkhana 3 was pretty much a rap music video, but Part 2 which was released today features a very impressive 7 minutes of driving. Even though it’s a Ford – Ken Block [...]
There really isn’t much to say, except this video is a must watch. Even with preparation and the proper setup, I’m still surprised Travis Pastrana went through with the jump. Now it’s just a matter of time before Ken Block comes up with something new. Video after the break!
It looks like Subaru has teamed up with Guinness World Records to try and set the record for the “largest parade of Subaru cars”. The recent announcement comes in the form of a press release from Subaru of America. The event is planned to take place on July 11th at 9 am in Itasca, Illinois. However [...]
Subaru of America came out with a press release this morning regarding the 2010 Subaru Legacy. Not only is the new 2010 Legacy bigger, wider, and more powerful, but it also features increased fuel economy as well. SOA has announced that the new 2010 Legacy will achieve 23 mpg around town, and a staggering 31 [...]
As you can see, I haven’t had much time to update this blog. However, I am going to try and put more effort into this site moving forward.
One of the primary reasons behind the lack of updates – is well, the lack of content. Moving forward, I’ve decided to change the focus of this blog to follow my autocross racing progress. The primary club that I run with is the New England Region SCCA. Our events are usually hosted at Devens Air Force Base in Ayer, MA. My goal is to document the progress of my car’s current state, and include write-ups of various modifications and events.
In the mean time, you can take a quick look at my current IWSTI member journal, found here: Acejam2k @ IWSTI.
This just in! Wicked Big Meet 2011 will be held this year on June 18 @ Stafford Motor Speedway in Stafford Springs, CT. This will be a new location for this event, which will supposedly have more room for vendors and parking. I’ve been to this site before for various NER SCCA RallyX events – so I’m curious to see how this event turns out.
As always, I will be there in full force taking pictures. Be on the lookout for a Wicked Big Meet 2011 recap with lots of pics.
It’s been about 4,000 miles since my new motor was installed. I recently had a local shop put a RAW Performance Street Series shortblock into my 2007 STI. So far the car has been running great, and I plan on writing a blog post soon that details my recent build.
After draining the Motul 5W-40 8100 X-Cess oil that I had been running – I decided that I wanted to cut open the OEM Subaru blue oil filter. I used an electric Black & Decker saw that I had lying around, and it managed to do the trick. However, I ended up cutting the filter directly in half, as opposed to just cutting the bottom part off. (and sliding the rest out) I’ve included some high-resolution pictures below.
Ken Block has recently announced that he will be holding a Gymkhana GRID Invitational event this upcoming weekend. The intention of this event is to expand Gymkhana’s reach, and to increase it’s popularity. (like he hasn’t done so already ) He plans to do this by inviting some of the world’s top drivers to compete with him head to head on a specially designed Gymkhana course. Not to mention, these events are a great way for DC Shoes to gain exposure. Clearly, this event is building on the success of Block’s previous gymkhana videos: one, two, and three.
The event will take place this upcoming Friday and Saturday (December 3rd and 4th) at Irwindale Speedway in Irwindale, California. Some of the invited hot shoe drivers for this weekend’s event include Tanner Foust, Andrew Comrie-Picard, and Vaughn Gitten Jr. As many of you know, Gymkhana is pretty much one giant drift-fest, so I’m looking forward to footage of this event. After things have concluded, feel free to send in any footage you may have and I will be happy to post it up on the site. (Subaru content or not! )
