Default Subaru WRX at Glamis Dunes

There's a video floating around of a guy playing in the sand with his '02 or '03 Subaru Impreza WRX at Glamis dunes, having a fun time.

The AWD and all season tires seem to have no problems in the sand, and he cruises right up the big dune above the staging area, surprising a bunch of guys on motorcycles, ATV's and sand rails.

I have an '03 Impreza WRX myself as a daily driver, and wouldn't use it to play in the sand. Though it sure looks like fun.

Hell, those cars would be fun just getting some groceries. When you hop them up they can be real big block beaters, but that can cost some real dough too.

I have an 93 legacy that would be fun to drop that motor in for a serious sleeper. I love the space of the wagon and 30+ mileage.
Working on 250K for miles and she still runs perfect and scoots in snow. :Burnout:

i use mine in the sand and the only thing i've done is recently break my lateral links. I hit the e-brake in a similar hill situation like at glamis to swing it around at the top of the hill. When the car came down it snapped and i heard a pop. If you take it in the sand, get stronger lateral links
