the porsche livery is gourgeous. also i guess it explains why all his old cars are gone or going.

Still not quite sure why he has sold everything: just the EsCos (and maybe the Hoonitruck) left now.

PJ, I hate to beg but when are you guys gonna throw us a little morsel of info about the next DR title?? THIRSTING FOR DEETZ OUT HERE

Can't say anything about any potential future titles until I'm allowed to, can't even give a date or confirm if anything does or does not exist 😄 

 

When I can though, I'll do my bit to get you all as hyped up as possible 😉

I do like the re-introduction of the paint drip theme.

There will be more cars. He will also do the Baja 1000 in a Trophy Truck.

And I also expect him to compete in Pastrana's Nitro Rallycross Series. Most logically now it would be in a Subaru, but who knows and he will work together with RX Cartel and some EKS Audi due to the Monster connection, or does return in his trusted Fiesta at Loenbro (as that have Hoonigan connections). And ealier he also hinted towards Dakar, so maybe he will be some rally-raid events to prepare himself for that.

Curious if he's keeping the RS 200.

He got an artist to do a painting and then they based the car on it 🙂

Seems like a throwback to the old Subaru DC Shoes paint drips. I still have a pair of those DCs around I haven't worn in a very long time.

I think i saw the RS200 up for sale.

We mentioned it before, @tbtstt said it was this smorgasboard of updates and not a "real" RS200 or something 😄

Genuine tub, but not a factory assembled car and not an original "Evo" specification car as claimed in some videos. 

According to the site listing it has now sold (for $550K) @F2CMaDMaXX, which means that Block sold it for fives more than he paid for it.

He said in the initial build videos he was going to "modernize" it with better kit.

It wasn't even close to period specification when he brought it. The origin of that chassis is hazy, it seems likely that it is one of the Glomma Papp rallycross cars, but that isn't certain.

The car was built up to Evo specification and ran a couple of different gearboxes (and colour schemes) before going up for sale in 2014. Apparently the engine in it at that time was a Schanche built 2.3L, but I haven't seen that verified, nor am I certain that is the engine in it now (it is listed as 2.1L, but the seller may not be aware). 

Block changed wheels and suspension dampers on it; so at a minimum that is unoriginal engine, ECU, gearbox and suspension... plus the car was assembled as a "bitsa" in the first place... 

...someone has handed the cash over though!

I feel like you're forgetting the part where you're super into it and I'm like "Ooh, look! Shiny!" I have no idea what any of that means.

tldr: Ken got an RS200, changed a few things on it and it's not the same as it was in the Group B days. Also because Ken's famous he made a profit off it.

Well yeah, but that's what I said in the first place. He bought it, said he would "modernize" it, then did that.

Then frickin' Steve here is all like "Well actually, garbled mumbo technical nerd speak jumble, yes."

Way to go and make things all complicated.
