Yeah that move with the single pylon looks very cool. His resulting line had a very strange shape almost like a sharply decreasing radius turn.

I think the hardest part would have to be going thru the hanger. Those floors are pretty slick, I bet he couldn't keep it from spinning going thru it at that speed.

Does anyone recognize that hanger?

It looks like the hanger BF-Goodrich uses for its mad tyte dorifto commercials.

Good video? Yes. Epic? Not so much. Had it been one continuous take it would have approached epic. You can see lot's of practice marks everywhere he went. I didn't notice a disclaimer stating this wasn't pasted together from lot's of different runs.

Makes a whole lot more sense and is a whole lot more exciting than dri*ft competition. Takes a whole lot of skill, time, practice and money to do that.

Same thing goes for Dri-fting as far as skill, time, practice, dedication, etc. Of course synchronized swimming is pretty amazing for the skill/practice/dedication needed too. I can't think of too many "judged" competitions that I enjoy watching more than every 4 years on the olympics. Diving, Gymnastics, Ice Skating, etc.

I much prefer competitions with absolutes. Hockey, Basketball, Football, Pool, Bowling, Golf and of course auto racing. Of course some of those I enjoy participating in and really don't spend any time watching.

Have no problem with the drif-ting in the video though. That was pretty cool. It's like a basketball player showing off amazing dunks, a really good trick shot artist on a pool table or with a gun. Not the primary focus of the athlete or sport but is just showing off!

I was thinking that too. I half expected to see the Mopar/BFG Charger come around the corner and start making out with the Subie.

Yup... same building.... if you notice, both have to do with BFGoodrich.


What lucky SOB owns that place? i'll have something like that when I win the lottery.

damn, cookies and doughnuts seem pretty childish and easy until someone tells you to do it in a specific location...


is that supposed to be drif-ting meets autocross? or is it just a large autocross course he decided to do a bunch of tricks through

The title change sucks. Not just the misspelling but I can't figure out it's intended meaning. Reading that title makes my brain hurt.

Cool vid and mad skilz but it's still ice dancing.


EDIT: THANK YOU FOR CHANGING IT AGAIN! Much better.

Don't agree with it but it's better. Now if he'd been dodging hot lesbians kissing instead of cones and a guy on the uber-ghey/geek segway maybe....

Anything sponsored by Rob Dyrdek is gonna be off the wall. That video was ******* awesome from start to finish. He did too many things for me to even have a favorite. I mightt just watch it again.
