One million views in 24 hours, as of today its up to over 2 million views since it came out. Ken Block’s “Gymkhana 4” takes us on a wild ride through the backlot of SoCals Universal Studios, past familiar sets and backdrops. We even get BACON!

Chock full of special effects, it makes sense that they used Universal Studios as the backdrop for his latest video

I’m gonna call this Video Friday! Now these videos have been making their way around the net so I won’t bore you too much with the details. Sit back and enjoy the videos (and choas).

Usually my blog consists of racing, Subaru Performance, and Subaru Icons but this time, we gotta dim the lights and talk about something that is a little more serious and may potentially change history. My friend Mike from SubieTech sent me this article via email from the non profit organization Change.org. Now from my understanding and from what I’ve gathered, women are still not allowed to drive automobiles in Saudi Arabia (or even ride a bike for that matter) and recently there was a woman who made a viral video who was driving. She was promptly arrested.

Now where does Subaru fit in all this? Well, Subaru’s marketing campaigns heavily towards families and women. Subaru also sells vehicles in Saudi Arabia. So if women aren’t allowed to drive (for now) in Saudi Arabia then why bother marketing towards women? This progressive thinking is right up Subaru’s alley and let’s see if they do something about it.

Although there are many women now taking a stand and making good points about why they should be able to drive (well, I know many) the traditions and beliefs of that region still stand strong. Many politicians have stepped up including Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

So if you believe strongly on this (which you should) and think that Subaru can make a difference by pulling out of Saudi Arabia until the government has lifted the ban, sign the petition and help the women in Saudi Arabia!

I love how Travis is still around rocking his Subie even though many have shunned his circle track duties as of late. If you’re a true Travis Pastrana fan, you know that he hasn’t forgotten his Subie roots.

In this video that was just uploaded, Travis calls out Ken Block on his marketing campaign etc. It’s all good though and no one should take this all to seriously. After all, DC does cut Travis a paycheck from time to time. It’s like a friend calling you out during a game of ping pong… or fooseball… or maybe something a little more competitive.

Anyways, enjoy this video, I know I did (The car, not the women…. err, ladies… err… Grandmas?)

So I was swimming around the world wide web (or should I have been surfing?) and came across this amazing STi. I don’t have much info on it other than it was from the guys at NotSoStock.com and it’s pretty stout.

According to the article, they were testing this car out and its wet set up. I think it’s made for a touring series in Canada. In fact, I recall it used to be World Rally Blue and it had a factory body.

Door Handles? We don’t need no stinkin’ door handles! Aerocatch door handles keep an aerodynamic look.

All the standard race interior parts… pretty serious.

Proper! Check out the rest of the car on NotSoStock.com and see it in action!

Car and driver reports on their blog today that Subaru’s Ts model targets BMW’s M power brand! Ts stands for tuned by sti, which seems a little redundant, but signifies a step above the standard sti. Though this model carries the same power plant. More info on Car and Drivers blog
