I didn't see where he had turned traction control off, but you're probably right. What surprised me is he was only going 20 mph out of the turn and lost control in a trubo-less 200 hp car?? I wonder what gear he was in.Read the owners account of what happened. Hopefully doesnt effect brz owners. This person obviously doesnt deserve to buy another for pulling stupid stunts like he did. I know a lot of us brz owners are older but still, learn from this guy and dont drive with traction control off on public roads.
I read through his account and Yes, he did turn off the traction control. And, the buffoon said he doesn't remember using his brakes.I didn't see where he had turned traction control off, but you're probably right.

Like I said before, limited car knowledge here, but I thought the traction control makes it more difficult to drift. He apparently wanted to drift to show off to his passenger so he turned it off. My guess anyway.Why would you turn off traction control on a public road in an attempt to drift??
He already said why he wanted to drift. He thought it would be fun and there was no one around and therefore safe. He was intelligent to do it when no cars or pedestrians were around so he could only hurt himself, which is great!Why would you turn off traction control on a public road in an attempt to drift??
almost twice the BRZ? ... Did you have about 1500 pounds worth of fat chick in your SVX when you weighed it? The SVX only weighed a couple hundred more then a current STI.I, for one, think it was smart to have the BRZ set at 200hp. Any more, and half these would get smashed in the first year........serious.
Yes I have owned the first gen of this, it was called the SVX. Those of you who have owned one, I say you will treat them with respect, Those of you not, there is the issue.
I have owned over 40 Subaru's. Over 10 EJ22T closed decks. and that one 155mph SVX- stock eg33 with 230hp, yes it did 155mph, but it weighed almost TWICE the BRZ
