He beat the **** out of that car!

I foresee gymkhana 4 soon, followed by 5, 6, 7, 8, so on and so forth. I think after the 1st one got so popular it turned into another great way to advertise DC, Monster, Spy, etc. Not to mention I'm sure he has a great time doing it. Must be nice........

UGH

Ken Block is nothing special guys, hes done sorta-kinda-good-ish in the US rally series. Thats like being sorta successful in the Jamaican bobsled championship.

There are hundreds of drivers in WRC that could drive circles around him (and have done so).
I cand find it now but there was a WRC driver who made a video doing stunts indentical to Ken Blocks original "Gymkhana" video, except this guy did it in a bone stock WRX.

Also, HOW THE **** IS THAT GYMKHANA?! Gymkhana is a timed event, not "look at me drift around and do silly things".

Hes just a self promoter, and he acts like a rockstar. So everybody goes ZOMG HE IZ DA BEST DRIVER EVERZZZ. Go watch F1 and stick your thumb up your ***.

I didnt say you guys did, but there are about 4967036 retarded fan boys who say that **** all the time.

The guy has *****, and puts on a show, tahts about it. Its kinda like Jeremy Clarkson, he can take a supercar around the track and drift it around and get good shots of the cameras, but hes certainly not an exceptional driver.

Phenomenal video. Hard to believe that he can't make the top ten in WRC- but then I guess that's the difference between show and go.

Are you also going to worry about all the fucktard that believe an air filter and a fart can make their car fast?

This was his first season even attempting the WRC. Lets hold out for next season and see how he does. I'm just excited as hell to finally have an american to cheer on. I'll be supporting him.

Keep in mind that Ken Block has only been rallying for a few years. I think he started in 04 or 05, right?

He was probably the only WRC driver these companies could budget/wanted to pay for. Whether he is good or not in WRC doesn't matter, it's still a great show.

I watched them tech his Fiesta at 100AW, there was NOTHING about that car that is related to the road car besides the panels they stuck on the outside. Even the engine was mounted longitudinally. It's a Fiesta like the NASCAR racers are Monte Carlos.

Ya WRC cars are nothing like their factory variants. Its an unfortunate circumstance of the rules changing to allow teams to put AWD systems in FWD cars even though they never actually produced the AWD car for sale. I think it started with the focus. Ever seen an AWD focus?

The Tiburon they ran in the US was made from mostly EVO and some Subaru parts, lol.

Respect for his driving skills and showmanship, but come on. The guy is a gigantic douchebag. Same with his 'crew'.

Assuming I had the driver skill to do this, and my measly ~200hp was enough, I'm estimating my setup would grenade roughly 12.45 times during the making of that film.
