Default Ken Block Gymkhana 5 in San Francisco

Now before you go bashing it for "drifting" or Ken Block in general, just watch the video.

Ken Block, DC Shoes and Monster have done more damage to the car scene than Erebuni and Nopi ever did.

Meh, talk all the ---- about block and DC you want. That video was badass and very entertaining. I like the part where he launches the street like its some kind of video game. You guys every play San Fransisco RUSH?

The ---- talking about Ken Block gets old. It's an entertaining video and that is all I take it as. Nothing more.

It was weird to see places I recognize in the video.

Does he have to be such a phenomenal douche in the process? Those flat brimmed Fox, DC, Monster wearing posers are a dime a dozen on the west coast and people like him are their God. Show me some well produced videos about time attack or something, not this choreographed phony *** DC commercial. We get it, you can do donuts around things.

Not to be a stickler, but that's the bay bridge.

I agree though, it is a lot like all the other videos, and the flat brimmed hat wearing gays suck and really have killed car culture, for example, none of us an own an EVO without being counted among them, even though it's a pretty decent car and has dang good bang for the buck.

I think the problem is we can't be marketed too successfully--we know too much about actual engineering and what cars actually do, so this crap is just lame. I guess it's just the classic battle against the ignorant masses.

I bet it is real. I was reading about filming in New york, maybe for the avengers and it was actually really cheap

With real I mean the setting, Im sure most of stuff takes more than one take, at least in all his older videos you can see all the marks already which only makes me wonder how may times he plowed some ---- in the making
