Somebody asked me how my BRZ does in the snow ... pretty much like what these guys show.  Pretty frakin' well thanks.  

Yes, mine runs Nokian Hakka R2s in 205x55R16 on classic Subaru Impreza wheels.  

And yes, like Todd, I've always told anyone who asked : "I drive better in foul weather, it keeps alert and ready."  Foul Weather Fiend

I had to laugh - I learned how to drive in the winter with rear wheel drive - and I drive it now.  I find it works just fine - if you have good winter tires and steer where you want to go and watch the foot!

Being tired, the best thing to do is watch some Youtube.  More interesting then most TV.

On a Subaru Outback kick ... this 4" lifted unit is very nice.

Finally, Scion no more.  

I wonder why they'll keep the FR-S name and not bring the international name for the car here :  GT86.

I'm a big fan of understated super-wagons.  Supergramps shown here is based on my favorite Legacy (Liberty) Wagon generation and truly mad with the a 3.6L custom turbo setup.  The final minutes of the video show the sheer effort put into the finished product.  And how talent can bring all those Lego-like Subaru parts together.

To think all I wanted to do 10 years ago is swap a RA Spec-C running gear into my Impreza Sport wagon.  
There is something to be said to "build your own car".  I lack time, facilities and friends with knowledge like Turbo Yoda.
But like my Subaru dealership salesguy, who drives a right-hand custom WRX, it can be done if you put your mind to it.

Ruskies show what is perhaps the hardest test run during a launch presentation: mud.

Yes, the Outbacks bog down in certain places, but not sure what wouldn't. The Defender that tows them is essential a tractor/mountain goat hybrid IMO.

Watch the first 67 seconds

If the snow conditions aren't the best in Kitzbühel Austria, maybe F1 races on the Hahnenkamm with snow chains is feasible.

See the 2011 season dominating Red Bull in the hands of Max Verstappen.
