Don't know if you will ever see this comment @Evan Shanks but.. This really hit me.. What you said about tuners turning you down, blocking you and don't want anything to do with you is what I'm going through RN.. I'm 22 and absolutely adore cars and everything about them, but it really is hard to do cope with when all you want is to make your own car expirience better, people say and do things to put you down in the dirt.. And choose NOT to help you out with what you love to do.. Thank you for this video, and keep up your hard good work! Thank you.

Dude, you are dwelling way way too much on the shyt that bothered you about the older adults etc... hopefully you got it off your chest and finally let go. At this moment, you have an excellent collection and making your journey a reality. Cheers

Evann, you've always been a fun dude to watchh on MNdown. Always loved the videos, especiallyy the red STi. Thatt thing was hot. You got this car I believe around the same time I was learning how to drive stick in high school and all that. So I would always be enjoying your POV shots and driving vlogs, and it just felt like we were all along for the ride haha. Im probably in the comment section all over the place enjoyin the vids. I was on your channel before the STi was there, but was definitely more excited when you first got it. Always been a Subaru fan and hearing the subie rumble, always enjoyed seeing you rip that car around. Amazing sounds. I remember when the car was givin problems, but I didnt think anything of it. I seen some hate comments, but I never knew it was to that extent. Those people are extremelyy weird for that. I'm glad you got rid of it, cuz it definitely seemed like the healthy thing to do. Glad you were able to overcome that, and become a much stronger person to be with us here today man. People in this world definitely need to be better. And I hopee all those people have learned from their ways and have a better attitude today too. Keep doin your thing boss.

I wish I could understand how you feel but I have too been in a situation similar when I was 16 I bought my first car it was a 1973 impala and it was my baby and I got rude comments threats got made fun of all because I wanted to my thing with it I had plans of putting a v10 I eventually bought the v10 but I got alot of comments and I just later ended up selling it and man that thing had alot of sentimental value because my mom passed away about 5 years ago now and that was my mom and dad's first car and I wanted to make it run again and I guess I just didn't have enough will power to go through with it because of all the people who made fun of me for that

19-20 is far too old to be playing the age card that’s a grown man. You’re the one who stepped into the car world and got pissy because we called you out on your fake content and blatant lies then called us assholes for the shit you did. Then you play victim because that’s your only move and that’s what the majority of the online car community sees you as. Take this as criticism for growth I build cars with 18 year olds that got way thicker skin than you do and if we argue in the garage which is rare nobody is throwing around age cards because they’re not 12 years old. You got a problem with embracing your own negativity you only listen to yourself. I came back to this channel in hopes that maybe you learned to not act like such a selfish person like the kind of person that takes a cancer victims death and monetizes it and makes it all about themselves but unfortunately as this video shows you’re the same narcissistic self centred victim card throwing douchebag you’ve always been. Tell me ever wander why 85 percent fan base doesn’t watch you anymore?

I can understand why you dont want the subaru back or to get another one. Its like all of the the trauma that you had yo deal with just make you not want anything. I had to watch your hate comments video and its sad to see all the people who just hate on you for a car. I can sort of relate to that. But keep up the amazing work on your videos.

Honestly man, I feel you. I’m 19 and I get crap for the truck I started building earlier this year. I haven’t started a MNdown account with it and it has to do a lot with the fact that people like just degrading me and trying to make me feel bad for what I like doing with it. I love the truck, despite the problems it has given me, I love the truck to death because it’s the first truck that I’ve built the way I want to build and have built it myself. Possibly the worst part in my opinion is the fact that even my own parents just trash me over it. Nonetheless I’m going to finish my truck and build it the way I want to, I do full time school and work a full time job for a reason, and it’s to build trucks and cars.

Hey Evan, i actually started watching your youtube back in the day when you had that car here and there then subscribed and started watching more frequently after you got the sc and started to build that. I don't want to read into it too much or make it seem like it but, did this experience with this car was also the reason why you got rid of the other subie so quick? Cause when you brought back another subie I was really excited then that one left fairy quick

I very rarely comment on youtube creators' videos but... I've been watching you since the TC. I may not have been subscribed since then but have supported you from that point. Multiple Twitter engagements with you and have come to the conclusion that you've grown so much as a person and I love your content. I believe that you deserve success.

If guys that are almost twice your age were shitting on you, then it only speaks to their own insecurity. Like... how insecure are they to talk shit about a 19 year old who doesn't know any better??? We were all that age at one point...we ought to have more compassion and understanding because they were 19 year olds at one point too. it's truly pathetic that some people don't choose to pick on someone their own size.

But all I’m gonna say is I’ve been here for so long and f all the haters bro. You’ve accomplished so much and you have such a big impact on my life, one day I want to be like you and I hope you know there are so many kids like me that want to accomplish what you have. I’m a 15 year old kid, keep doing what you do keep following what you want to follow, stay the leader you have always been, much love for you and your wife.

Whassup, Evan?! Greetings from South Africa... My name is Zwelethu Mahlangu and I currently own a blobeye WRX (2003). I can relate a lot to what you went through owning your STI, cause I'm going through a lot of that right now. I've owned my car for 2 years and it's been my dream car since it's release in 2003. I also started a MNdown channel around it to both celebrate the car and to join the automotive MNdown community. Unfortunately I've also experienced a lot of psychologically damaging hate since I got the car. Some of it even from people I used to consider friends. It's been a very lonely time for me in that regard, but I'm also stubborn as hell about my dreams and I think, now that you've clearly grown so much since that time, that you SHOULD buy that car back (if you can) as a symbol of how far you've come since then and a reminder that you flourished despite those idiots hating on you. My humble opinion.... Otherwise I really enjoy your content and I think the daily advice section of your videos is slowly becoming my favorite part of them because it's so inspiring... Keep on being the shining example you are to those of us who look up to you and also want to achieve their dreams...

I’d like to apologize for the Subaru community. We, yes we because I will not act like I’m not part of the problem, are bad at seeing individuality for ones car. This community, online, is not great what so ever. But meeting other subie owners in person is what kept me in my sti. We do really get along. But people online are just straight cruel and I’d like to apologize about how it went in your past because it seems all to familiar. I’m sorry.
