vitaliy Tekmenzhi : These guys are amazing at edditing and keeping the viewer engaged

Georgio Henderson : That pressure on Pastrana must be spooky. A guy with a bunch of experience on your team crashed, could have possibly even died if that was a different corner, and now you have to do the same thing without failing.

Michael Billek : The hardest part of watching this video was having to clench my fists, grind my teeth, and smile all at once.

MoonShadow Cafe : at 18:41 did he waive to some people?? insane!

Ivan Vega : Ken Block got called out

Hillrod films : pastranas guardian angle must be stressed out to the max lol

Hans Bischoff : 19:35 left hanging hard lol

Benji Arnold : How do I get the narrator to do my eulogy when I die? fantastic TV voice

Schofhauser Media : Higgins crashes at a time of 4:01 and Pastrana passed that spot at a time of 4:02ish....damn that was close! Would have been insane to see the split had Higgins finished!

8meals : And that folks is why I own a Subaru. Not cuz of this or that, just cuz I love the brand, the product, and their work in the community and all the envelopes that they push.. Great job.

SOLOIIguru : Oh man, just watched the whole video and I must say I'm getting a little emotional. Not enough can be said about Travis, his abilities as a human being behind the wheel or on the handlebars and especially his humbleness and appreciation for where he is and what he has accomplished. I've been a Subaru owner, fan and follower since I bought my first Subaru, a World Rally Blue bugeye WRX in 2001. I have watched Travis run the Oregon Trail rally, the MT. Washington Hillclimb and even his early attempts in the GRC way back when it first came to the US and NJMP. This company, this sport (and it is a sport) and this demographic owe this man so much gratitude and debt for bringing a true American Rally driver to the sport. I would love to see Travis and Subaru join the WRC and for Travis to be the first American World Rally Champion. A continued thanks to Travis, the whole crew at Vermont Sports Car and Subaru itself for giving people like me something to get excited about time and again. Hey, Travis, how about you challenge Mark Higgins at the Isle of Man, break the Pikes Peak record and truly cement yourself as the greatest Subaru driver ever. It would be awesome to see!!!! THANK YOU SUBARU USA, VERMONT SPORTS CAR AND THE WHOLE SUBARU RALLY TEAM USA!!!! Congratulations on yet another great victory and record.

simon19920 : Awesome editing and camera work, loved every second. But gosh damn, 800hp... I kinda... Really want to drive that... Just the sound of that engine, truly magical. I wish I owned a Subaru.

Marticus : So humble and awesome at the same time, Travis Pastrana is fantastic!

mutznutz : The worst part of this show is the wait until the next one

snakebyte18 : holy s#!t, this had me at the edge. Good for pastrana. Glad David came out ok!

Knife Fiend : Never stop making this series. These videos make more proud to own a Subaru every time I watch them!

Lin Chester : Hats off to the Subaru Team, they have def smashed the record. Too bad Mitsubishi is missing from Rally and Hillclimbs. Will be nice to see a Evo competing at the same level as the STi

philly chilly : They quit making evo's for a reason😂🤣🤣🤣😎

Seth Davis : Going to welding school because of this show

Matthew McLean : "It's one of the scariest things you'll do in your life" @18:40. Still has time to wave to bystanders.

Revengeful Lobster : Like the Nordschleif but with even more death waiting. The speeds are lower but with varying surfaces, fewer visual cues on track, and little room for mistakes makes this a lot harder I think. You run off on a rally course and it's almost always very bad, so let's throw in some cliffs for added excitement... This is some intense racing and the drivers are amazing. Great vid!

Monica Duenas : the production value of these launch control episodes are second to none......but this episode is in another level. I already knew the outcome yet I was still at the edge of my seat. Kudos to Higgins for going flat out, he didn't finish...but man what a run for it.

Joseph Rodriguez : geez with 800 hp , TPs subie has lvl 999 godly grip :)

diego belgrado : If Sebastien Loeb ran on this mountain with the same car, he could crush easily the record, it's something I would like to see.

vincentrc rodriguez : nice! I like how he throws out a little friendly competition to Block and Millen for a challenge.

2j_nelz : I had to watch it twice 🔥⛽️🚀 thank u for this video 😎

KingRBN : ## Haha I guy was trying to Hi-5 but got left hanging around 19min

Dr. Evo : Ken Block ? Hahahaha 😬 😂 You'll mop the floors with Ken Block, I heard he's really good at editing his "Gymkhana" videos tho and he can't even get those right, let alone climb a mountain, what a joke.. Hahahaha 😬 😂

Charlie Criscola : That call out though. LOL Did Block and Millen respond? I want to see them up there too!

RYAN56721 : So uh, Subaru.. Where can a guy buy one of these lovely things ;D

mkera100 : Great to see Pastrana do so well... man's come a long way

Joshua Muzaaya : Higgins is LEGEND!

frisconinja : My next car will be Subaru for sure

Sanele Khanyile : truly amazing. Deep inspiring passion. i'm proud to say i'm a car enthusiast :)

2011wrxswp : I am in awe of the record run, the cars and production quality of this video. Very emotional, great job.

Jolujo 58 : Gotta have the skills and BIG BRASS BALLS to drive like that ☝👍👍👍👍

Lilian : You can clearly see on the video that the first guy was driving Way faster. The second one seemed very careful.

Paulo Forged : At the 1st split he's slower than David , he's not conserving tyres he's just actually not as fast as David... but we are not happy being slower so we'll say he's conserving tyres :)

tqdzwa maramba : Great vid and story but, geez, can we please find the guy/girl with the music controls and turn it down

Luminescent Lion : 21:35 oh no it's the cringy bumper sticker that you can not get away from in New Hampshire

Olivier Canal : top notch editing....the video is really Nice to watch......congratulation Pastrana!!!!!

The Bear E36 : The launch control at 5:13~ made me butt moist. Oh my gawd..

Squiggy Wigginz : My real name is Tim Block. I am Ken Block's driver for "stunts".

Rick Ricky : Without a co-driver in a powerful car like that and on such a road, 2 plays a major role. The memory of the driver and looking far ahead the road, the moment the curve's scanned, the eyes looks forward to the next one while entering the already scanned curve, driving without blinking an eye. Combining all those together comes the skills and the fast reflection of the driver. Rally, what an outstanding motor sports.

Shane : Just watched this for my 27th time. AMAZING!

Chris Trotter : I live in Conway, not far from mount Washington and never knew this happened.

ALLSTARS-EVENTS : Schönes Ding Amigo salami pastrana dude ;) wait till i come there with BMW :P

emina selimovic : lived in NH for practically 18 years and have only just found out about this today. of course when I move out of the country back to the mother land I found out about another amazing thing my state has. Amazing!

Matthew Wakefield : Hey Subaru! WE NEED ANOTHER WRX HATCH!! I would also accept a wrx or turbo version of the crosstrek
