Things could have gone a little better but we made it, Rick broke a ball joint, bent a radius arm, and broke out a window. Scott Pulled the blue bomber out for a run, it did good considering it was AWD with now Low range, Jared blew a rearend or his axles, not to sure which it was, Devon with the toyota had his battery flip over, and cause some issues, and I had my E brake stick on........Other than that it was a good run.

Video is being uploaded right now here is the link to my youtube deal

is it just me or did the legacy seem to do much better offroad?Possibly because of more power?Makes me wonder how a EJ swaped EA series car would do offroad?

doesnt the saying go Power OR Traction OR Gearing.If you have all three great,however you can get by with only two.
the legacy has power and traction,while the other roos just had traction?

side by side comparison for offroad Legacy lacks low gear and is AWD so when one tires off the ground you have no power to the ground, I had to get a big run at things that in my EA82 wagon with the EJ and locked rear I could have just Iddled up, I love the car, ounce I swap out the Tranny with a Dual range, Adapter plate, Redrilled fly , Impreza FWD axles and a modified driveshaft this will be my new Wheeler, it has a 4" lift on it and 27" tires , if your not doing any off camber hillclimbs the stock AWD trans would be fine, SJR

Seems real crazy for you to say this, have you ever seen scotts other car? maybe you should take a look at some of the other vids on the youtube page you can see scotts EJ'D ea82 White car there, it has been wheeled for the last year like that.

BTW scotts car did very well considering..... It's good to know that we will all be able to wheel even the legacy's in the future, it may take some work to make them a perfect wheeler but it has everything you could ever want, an EJ, 5 lug, 4x4, and comfrotable seats......:)

I watched all the videos, pretty cool stuff.

I think that Legacy would be pretty tough with a D/R tranny.
Even if it does look like a Ford Taurus :-p
