DC Shoe Company owner puts Subaru WRX through its paces

For those looking at used Subarus as an option for spirited driving, DC Shoes owner and rally driver Ken Block is happy to show off what he’s done with a specially modified WRX STi.

He has been focusing on Gymkhana events, which are somewhat like autocross races but include reverses, spins and drifting, building on the experience he has in winning five Rally America Series races, according to autoblog.com

“Watching Ken run his car through its paces (always on a closed course!) usually elicits some extreme reactions,” says James Han, Subaru America motorsports marketing manager.

While those looking for used Subarus in New Jersey may not be as interested in seeing if their purchase can make a 171-foot jump like Block did, a used Subaru WRX, or the less expensive Impreza may be one option.

In 2004, the model got upgraded suspension struts for better handling, and a new style that made away with the former circular headlights, changes that Edmunds.com editors say make for ” a practical, fun-to-drive alternative to the typically dull cars” in its class.
