Subaru Impreza WRX drives on two wheels

There's one great thing about a symmetrical all-wheel drive system, it makes two-wheeling much easier! Thanks to an even power distribution, driving a Subaru Impreza on two-wheels is the ultimate in car show fun. Looking for a way to impress your friends at the next Subaru meet? Show up riding on only two wheels, if you dare risk your precious vehicle. One wrong move and the car can easily roll over. Think this is wild? Check out these Saudi drifters as they drift and two-wheel on the interstate!

How exactly does the two-wheeled stunt work? As seen at the 2009 Bankok Motorexpo, you'll first need a carefully placed ramp. Hitting the ramp with the passenger side of the vehicle at a very slow speed, the car will rise up on two wheels. If you do this on the driver's side, it becomes much harder to balance, and will probably roll or drop down pretty hard. Once you're up in the air, it's now time to use the steering as a balance. If you start to fall left, turn left. If you start to fall right, turn right. It's a simple balance trick that isn't really that hard once you have some practice.

Who's daring enough to risk their Impreza to become an infamous parking lot stunt master? Not even Ken Block has tempted this trick yet! (Idea!)  Something tells me we just might see this trick in the next Gymkhana..
