I picked there brain for like an hour at Sema, New 2.6 block blue printed with there P & P heads, oversized valves with a four way grind,there new stanalone EMS, sub pump, and a bigger high flowing intake manifold.

all of you are going to hate me for saying this, but as cool as that was to watch and as much as i respect ken block because he slays in rally in a serious way, i don't think that was that impressive.

the part where he almost killed the cone was awesome, but the rest was pretty easy to do. it's like driving in the snow. once you break the traction of the car going sideways it's easy to control it and slide and point your car basically in any direction you want. it's also not that hard to do power donuts even if the space is tight. again, once you break traction of the straight line you're in control again.

Ok then lets see your video doing this! Yes if he was in a dift compention he would have been deducted several times for the tire(s) going off the pavement, but this was just a car testing video for gymkahana practice.

I hope you have seen his DC mountian lab video , he has mad driving skills and balls bigger then your head.

don't get me wrong, i think ken block is the man, i just think this video doesn't really showcase the skills he really has.

while this video is cool and he does some precise stuff when you really break it down doing donuts and powerslides is pretty basic when compared to what he would encounter on a rally stage.

if someone wants to hook up a camera and this car and let me have some practice, i would be more than happy to show it to you. or we could find some snowy roads this winter in my car and you can be the judge of how much crap im talking haha.

ive seen the DC video. intense stuff for sure.

^Hey, whatever.

I've watched this thing a half-dozen times and it's still the coolest bit of driving I've seen in recent memory.

it is pretty rad, and that part with the cone was effing cool, but i would rather see ken block blasting through the woods and 9090909 miles an hour like he does when he races.

that to me is much much more impressive that power slides and donuts. i can watch jeremy clarckson do that every week

Classic mini on an actual gymkhana course. Unfortunately the FWD and the lack of any power prevented it from doing any power sliding

I wish the make those sequential shifters for the 5MT.
