                  Should have brought an outback or a forester for the really muddy parts. The impreza is a great rally car but it's a tad too low for this kind of road

                    I know they're doing the whole "driving through african country in a rain storm while blaring toto" as a joke-thing, but god damn it's genuinely beautiful.

                                                    i can't believe even they think that going fast is best when on poor terrain ... i've seen lot of mud pit challenges where people build special vehicles and then they go full throttle LOL. the faster your wheels spin, the less traction you have ... common sense lol.
                                                    you can start by going faster to have some inertia, but once your wheels start spinning, try to keep wheels spinning as slow as possible for better grip.

                                                          To be fair, what would you consider "normal"?
                                                          It's obvious that the Subaru, as an awd, has the advantage over rwd and fwd.

                                                          Not trying to talk down the Subaru, I like them alot, just saying that the drivetrain already makes a ton of difference, and there are many "normal" cars, that come with the same, and sometimes even better awd drivetrains.
