Is there anything more satisfying than outdoing yourself and beating your own record? Travis Pastrana can probably relate after completing the Subaru Mt. Washington Hillclimb presented by Yokohama Tire in 5 minutes and 28.67 seconds, beating his own record set back in 2017.

His weapon of choice? “Airslayer,” the 862-horsepower 2020 Subaru WRX STI built similar to the one he piloted in the most recent addition to the Gymkhana series:

Pastrana had this to say following his record-breaking run:

What a wild ride! The team at Vermont SportsCar built the most awesome Subaru on the planet. The Airslayer was designed with the Mt. Washington record as a top priority. They pushed the limits on horsepower and downforce then widened the body for better stability. On top of the horsepower and downforce gains, the Yokohama ADVAN tires gave me a huge advantage keeping the power to the ground consistently from bottom to top.
