YouTube - Ken Block Gymkhana Practice
"Fresh set of tyres and underwear please"
I was loling just at how ridiculous that was. Awesome.
post your vid's Judas
It's the car. The driver is good but it's the car that makes it possible.
what the hell is that cars engine made of... titanium...
I wish I could go out and afford to rip through a $2000+ set of rubber. Sure would be insanely fun though.
What the **** dammmm that was excellent and the car was super!
did i say i was better?
but i've seen better....
as stated above..
with enough power under the hood, drifting doesn't take all that much to do.
I would have been impressed if the guy was doing it with a lincoln town car.... very impressed.
I would be curious to see a videos of the inside of the car while the guy is driving the course to see the guy steering, shifting and pressing the pedals.
I'm mostly interested in seeing how he shifts as it looks like it it should be hard to do while driving like that.
Some drifting competition cars have a brake balance lever in the car. They can put 100% braking on the front wheels and 0% on the rear wheels if they want. It makes it very easy to do doughnuts in place as you just have to floor the two pedals.
i'm not sure.. but i couldn't see.... but i thought that model had the steering wheel shifter..... but i couldn't see well enough..... perhaps not..
and yes some of the drifters or stunter cars have far more control over the various aspects of breaking.
You're an idiot, drifting is easy, controlled drifting is fucking hard, and something the Japanese (And their cars) are adept at.
Seriously impressive, but totally useless, just how I like it.
have you tried it stop it?
To each there own, the meer fact that with enough horses under the hood will determine as a factor, exactly how easy it is to perform a drift let alone control it.
It's not so much getting into the drift as being a problem, but how to control it. Agree it isn't easy unless you've gotten a little bit of practice.
Now with a little itty bitty engine in comparison with the standard town car or vehicle that you see out on the every day streets, this is where the skill is really required.
Think of it like having "sweet zones", with the shitty everyday car, you have extremely tight sweet zones, these zones are where you have to be spot on or else you lose your control. Where as with that subaru the sweet zones are quite large, you don't have to be super spot on for you to keep full control, hell you can be even a little sluggish.
Yes i'm well aware of the japanese having done the drifting for ages through the mountains and valleys. But that doesn't say that they were the only ones pulling this off.
There are countless places in the world were different forms of drifting are done, saskatchewan is not without using gravel roads and dirt roads not to mention trails. Course todays cars would fly apart at the seams through the first bit of drifting. (it's named a little differently depending where you go).
Controlling a small bit of a drift with an empty 3 ton grain truck isn't exactly easy... let alone trying to get it to drift
As i was saying, I'm not impressed by it.. that's all i was saying, but it's not like i think the guy sucked either. I would have been stoked if the guy was driving something far more complicated to do the same thing.
Poor tires. Amazing driving skills. Cool video editing.
judas, if you weren't impressed by it, why didn't you just make that comment in your initial post to begin with?
meh = not impressed.......
i like how people insist on knowing anything about another person.....
Ain't tried shit hey? And you'd know what exactly?
ok Judas, this is an offical warning. I dont care what goes on in the flame zone, but i am getting sick seeing threads with you arguing with people. and before you ask, no I don't care who started it, your epenis is a little out of hand lately.
I am clamping down on this, if I see you involved in anymore bitchfests you are getting removed from the site. That said, if people intimidate you, then before you start a retort PM me personally and ill deal with it.
Seriously, you would think you guys had more to do than bitch at each other about stupid stuff like this. CDs, please stop making the matter worse by flaming the fire.
I want this site to be really positive and for you long standing members to get on, but its got to the point where im going to have to get this stopped.
