Thats just insane. This man will never stop. But Im cool with that. Very entertaining.

Hahaha... If I remember right, I think those Mattracks aren't meant to go much over 40 mph, so they wouldn't be too much fun on an STi.

On a side note: I'm still patiently waiting for Gymkhana 3 :)

If you look those things up, there are several variations, ranging from expensive, to retarded expensive (around the $20K mark per tread). But, John Im with you, cant wait for his next crazy run around some crazy stuff.

I just think Ken Block is the man....some of the stuff he does is just amazing. I'm just sad to see he will leaving Subaru for Ford. :(

I would leave subaru also if they werent supporting one of my major events. Its either drive for ford (who will be letting him keep his monster endorsement also) or not drive at all. To me it doesnt matter, Im also a ford fan, lol. Its unfortunate, yes, but also great for him that he gets to keep doing something not only he enjoys, but is good at also.

booosted09 11-06-2009 04:29 PM

Yea i agree with you...i find it odd that Subaru pulled out of so many rally events...more power to him...i'm sure he still has a few Sti's at home...

newtothegame 11-06-2009 04:32 PM

With all the connections and people he has worked with, you know he will always have a place for an STI or two.

Eh, I was under the assumption ford pegged him for their WRC fiesta/focus teams. Not that Subaru wouldn't support his marketing. And seeing how WRC is a bigger stage than Rally America. It'd be silly not to step up. Maybe I read wrong....

Hey, sorry for bringing up a kinda old thread, but my names Jordan and this is my first post here and i thought it would be a good first.

last night at about 9:30 P.M. a friend of mine named AJ messaged me on myspace and told me he needed to call me, so i gave him my number and then a few seconds later he called and said that Ken Block's Subaru STI was infront of "Ray's Muffler" (which is a little dinky exhaust shop about two blocks away from my house) so i grabbed my camera and ran, literally, down my block and over one. and heres what i saw...


enjoy

i'm the one that looks like seth rogen BTW

pretty legit experience. i'll never forget it. i'd have to say it was totally worth standing out side freezing my fat ass off for the pics.

more upon request i guess. but thats pretty much it.

turmic 11-26-2009 06:36 PM

That is sick...(awesome)

newtothegame 11-26-2009 06:48 PM

Nice man. I got to meet him also, but unfortunately my camera died before I got to snap pics. I did however get pics with me chatting it Travis Pastrana that day.
