I thought the driving style loked familiar.  I saw this video several years ago, and was more impressed by the way he kept the car inside boxes and through specific gates.

Ken BLock has enough money he can trash as many sets of tires as he feels like. He is the sole (no pun intended) owner of DC shoes. I can do a lot of sliding around on dirt, but I aint nowhere that good. It is fun to watch though.

I cant watch drift "racing". Its just crappy driving on bad tires. Any descent road racer in a mediocre car would blow them away.

 

It looks like they did atleast 1 full day of shooting judging by the sun angle in different shots. There were a lot of "do overs" too by looking at the skid marks on the asphalt. ( look for that the next time you watch "Smokey and the Bandit, not too many 1 takers)

It was enjoyable to watch. High HP and AWD is cool! Thanks for sharing.

I love seeing the marks from previous takes in movies. Some of the marks are realllllllly off the mark.

Wow!  Questions:  He had auto shift padels, yet the lever on floor too!  I was thinking it looked four wheel drive too, so is that lever to kick in and out?  Darn thing sounds like a 2-stroke!  Sounded like missing when full-revved?  Limiter or valve float?

 The "floor shifter" was non locking rear brake handle to get the back end sliding, kinda like doing the "E brake Slide" but no button to stick and mess everything up.

That's something!  Me thinks someone needs a new set of rubber!  That was the best look I've ever seen of the bank angle of a track....that's steep!

That's what I was thinking too! Considering Daytona is 31° :smilewink:  that track is unreal!

P.S. Many people don't realize how steep that is, but just lets say you can't walk up it. The Start/Finish line @ Daytona looks like it's flat on TV, but that too is 31° in person.

Yes, that would be Ken Block. I have watched many of his videos and his driving skill is definitely up there!

 

This is my favorite one.

I wonder how many sets of tires are laid on the floor in that building? LOL.
