I like the first one better.. more about driving, less about doing stupid stunts that have nothing to do with anything.

I also like the first one more. This one has a bit too much flash. Flash or not, he still drives like a ************.

Yeah, the new car looks and sounds like poo.. althought some of the slow-mo shots are cool, I prefer the other video.

Another vote for the 1st video. I didn't get it with all the stunts and crap.

Both videos are ******* sweet!

If I had the means to build a car exactly the way I wanted to and could pull strings to get dope *** spots to **** off at I'd be all over that too.

Must be nice! lol

Horray for equal length headers...or not. Makes a subie sound sad.

Dumbest part was the paintball guy. WTF?

A miata doesn't need a semi trailer to be lifted to fit under.

Quick, someone buy my new shoes so I can be cool too. sigh.

The product placements and some of the stunts were a bit cheesy, but come on.. can any of us do what he did?

with an unlimited budget and the kinda time that guy has on his hands (well, with financial security comes time to do what pleases you, and in his case, his job I'm sure pleases him), I'm sure at least 80% of the male population could do just as he did.

Or maybe there's a reason why I bent a throw out bearing in my Camaro dumping second gear at 5:45 am on my way to work last summer.

It's really just this simple. Get in a fast car, beat the **** out of it and don't think about safety, breaking the car, or police, and bingo, you're a beast.

/end me vocalizing my dumbassness. (PM for request to see pic of throw out bearing )

I'll tend to agree with this. It might take 2 dozen passes, but I'm sure most of us can edit together a very fun video given a relative unlimited budget.
