Launch Control: America’s Rallycross Final Round 2018 - Episode 6.11


Huy Nguyen

For someone not really into motorsports, this is such a good introduction and done in a way that appeals to everyone. Car racing is the theme, but it's really a show about people, so that's why I'm here, but really, I'm really starting to appreciate cars a lot more. There's some really beautiful shots in some of the rally episodes. As a dude that daily drives a Subaru, this makes me feel pretty good.

Seems to me every team is targeting Subaru and purposefully taking out the drivers cars. Disgraceful driving, focus on racing instead of being an a- hole. Mini driver and Ken Block.

I hate to sound negative after watching the team grow its resources to towering heights of dependable competence with the sport, which is no easy task by the way, but at this point I do believe that subcontracting outside assistance for specialized services is the way to move forward so that the package matches the passion being invested. Don’t get me confused, there are manufacturers on-board who provide highly specialized parts to make their existing progress possible but the resource being employed by top tier FIA competition teams is what’s going to make the biggest leaps possible in my opinion; so rather than discovering what might work or what could work the team can make the changes that will deliver the dominant performance needed to be at the sharp end of the field. Of course this take it out of context with a convoluted budget, but these small steps of progress are beginning to be demoralizing for the team as they compete against what seems like an impossible handicap. I really wish an extremely strong 2019 season where they can build on the impressive momentum of the 2018 season.

Tremendous and genuine respect for Subaru Rally Team USA! What a brilliant bunch of guys, doing so much for the sport that we all love, But and this is a big butt.... I just can't help but feel that the key and fundamental flaw of Subaru's RX program will always be the dimensions of the WRX of which the car is built on! And no matter how much development is put into the aero etc, the competitive advantage that the Beetles/Polo enjoy in terms of basic vehicle dynamics will alway reign king. The evidence clearly points to that cars of that length (such as the Hoonigan Focus) work best on high speed tracks with 'long' corners something which is uncommon in a sport which is inherently filled with stop and go type circuits. I really hope that the news coming out of Japan that Subaru is set to Launch a 'B segment' car in 2020 of the similar size of a Fiesta or a Polo is correct, because that being the case Subaru Rally Team USA will certainly be a match for the competition and give something for its Loyal fans to cheer for!!

let's face it, Subaru needs new Rallycross drivers and a new chassis.......badly. Sandell and Atkinson are kind of mediocre drivers (and, IMO, neither of them have a shining personality), i find it hard to believe it's just the cars..... I wouldn't mind seeing the whole team switched up. Get rid of Lance too, he's fucking annoying. how about let's get a Japanese driver for our Japanese car......

I am a bit curious why the Subaru team is running cars that are so much bigger (it seems) than the others. It appears they are running a sedan body style instead of a much more compact hatchback style (like all the other teams are). On rally courses like Finland/Sweden where you have long straights in SUPER slick conditions it makes sense sometimes for stability but in a sprint-style race with very tight courses and a lot of close-in kung-fu style handling it seems to be a pretty big handicap. Just sayin’.
