Travis Pastrana is again for the twelfth version of the Gymkhana collection, which suggests loads of tyre-shredding and stunts that have to be seen to consider. This time, a closely modified 1983 Subaru GL wagon known as the Household Huckster is Pastrana’s weapon of alternative, changing the earlier Airslayer International Takeover that was based mostly on a WRX STI.
Going down in Florida, Gymkhana 12 begins with Pastrana “warming up” with a loads of drifting and sliding earlier than continuing to grind down some barrier rails. The following stunt entails performing some donuts across the Grave Digger monster truck, whereas others that observe are a race in opposition to a drag automobile and jet aircraft, performing jumps at over 257 km/h (160 mph), leaping over a helicopter, and plenty of extra. It’s simply over 10 minutes of continuous motion and spectacular car management.

“This Subaru wagon is essentially the most enjoyable automobile I’ve ever pushed, and I’m addicted. This was nice probability to be much more artistic with the stunts and it was nice to have a few of my favourite individuals make some cameos. I hope everybody watching enjoys it as I did. And what a automobile, I actually tried to interrupt it, however it simply stored going. This complete factor was so epic!” he added.
The Household Huckster is powered by the identical engine that was used within the Airslayer, which is bespoke 2.3 litre turbocharged and intercooled flat-four engine serving up 862 hp and 900 Nm of torque. Developed by Vermont SportsCar (VSC), the EJ-based mill encompasses a Garrett turbocharged, a dry sump oil system, sodium-cooled valves and diamond-like carbon coated camshafts.
VSC can also be answerable for the billet block and heads, twin belt timing system, inlet manifold, anti-lag system and turbo administration. All that energy is shipped to all 4 wheels through a SADEV six-speed sequential gearbox that includes a Tilton triple-plate carbon racing clutch, with a VSC entrance differential and SADEV rear differential.
The highest pace of the monstrous wagon is 282 km/h (175 mph), whereas different key elements embrace Reiger competitors suspension, AP Racing brake calipers, Limitless brake pads, customized KMC 18-inch solid wheels, Yokohama Advan A052 tyres and a 3D printed Inconel fender-exit exhaust.
Additionally put in on the Household Huckster is an energetic aero rear wing, which is managed electro-pneumatically, together with entrance and rear hydraulic aero flaps positioned on the fender flares which might be managed robotically or manually. As a tribute to the US Ski Crew Subaru GL wagons of the Eighties, there’s additionally a practical carbon-fiber roof rack that directs air to the rear-mounted radiator.
