The green Forester has a EJ251 upgrade but oem 4,11 diff ratio and oem 1,447 low range. Front shocks are standard KYB with 17,5cm stroke, rear are Outback BG with 22,5cm stroke and he has a rear Vlsd. The problem is he has the oem 4kg center diff so as soon as he lifts one wheel in the air, he spins that wheel.

You can't compare to my Forester, all the mods I did are very useful on and off road. He should upgrade his Forester this summer with my ex-Proflex coilovers, DCCD and maybe 1,59:1 low range. In the next video, he will be able to follow me !

Sometimes I need momentum !

Yes, he did, but with more effort and many more attempts...not shown in the video, same for the green Defender.

My game is to push the big fourbies to their limits and show them that a stock looking Forester can be redoubtable...most big fourbies hate me

If you look closely to the video, you can see that I went through the obstacles with relative ease, except I didn't want to spend 2 hours of cleaning after the mud pit so I just jumped it.
That's nice. I think the last round-the-world tour I know of is the Subaroute couple, where they covered, OZ to China, Russia, then back to Ireland. The forum is long gone now but according to them, they only had to change the rear shocks.
