If you’ve been on Instagram and Facebook a lot these past few days, we’re pretty sure you’ve seen this STI making its rounds on different Subaru pages. Who wouldn’t want to share a car that looks good as this? Joe, also known as subie001 on the internet, is the proud owner of this beast rocking a set of 18×11 Rota MXR’s wrapped in 295/30/18 rubber. Joe installed a set of Karlton flares to house that massive wheel setup and says that his car handles like a dream but takes some getting used to. Joe’s STI also has a pretty long list of power mods to match that aggressive stance. We are definitely in-love with this car!

Joe would like to thank Dustin Roach for the sick pics, Team DDR and everyone who helped him with the build.

This has got to be one of the most awesome Subaru builds we’ve ever seen. It took Hummel a couple of years to get here but all the work was definitely worth it. The first thing you’ll notice when you this car is the over all stance. Not only is he running 18×10 wheels, he’s also got aero upgrades to match. The Kakumei body kit flows so well with the Kansai Carbon Fibre Rear Fin-Style Diffuser and Voltex Carbon Fibre Rear Round-Style Diffuser. What a combo! Going through his mod list, you will notice that he did not leave a single detail behind. He’s got everything: go-fast mods, suspension bits and rare interior pieces that truly reflect that this is not your ordinary WRX. Be sure to check out his mod list below.

Another addition to our list of sponsored vehicles is this monster Evo. As some may know, it is badged as the “Evo of Doom” owned by Hsun Chen. Well now, it can define “doom” even more, rolling on these aggressive Flat Black 18×9.5 +35 Rota DPT’s. Don’t forget the oh so sticky Nitto Nt-01’s. This beast was built by SCR Performance, together with AST custom suspension setup and a custom tune from TOBZ tuning. The complete package made Hsun the Street modified class champion of the SCCA Solo National Championship autocross competition. Video of the winning runs could be seen at the bottom.

Good luck to this years season Hsun! More hp to the crew.
