That was awesome!


I went up to the New England Forest rally over the summer and got an autographed event shirt from him Very Happy


Anyway the even is a great time and I plan on going again next year, i'll put up the info when it comes around again if there is interest.

p.s. Did anyone else go to that event?

My first thought is that I'm suprised it took him 3 tries to get that sequence down. I'm guessing the first 2 were dry runs without the obstacles just to figure out the proper placement of everything.

My second thought is that I feel bad for anyone who gives him a car to play with.

My third thought is why don't Stewart and Earnhardt and those guys drive like that around watkins glenn?

At every obstacle he entered there were already a set of skid marks that showed where he was going to slide. The later part of the course near the end had 2 distinct sets of tracks already laid down before he entered the trick. The earlier sections it's harder to count the number, but at the squared off zones where he went around tiny cones you can see the first couple tries and how they had to adjust the barricades outwards more to line up the exit from the box and into the tunnel.

Dude, with some of the moves he is pulling I'd be surprised if he didn't run that course several times before getting it right.

Better than his first one, but the Subaru sounded way better than the ford. The fiesta sounds like I do after I eat beans. Razz

Lets go to Concord Arrow

I wounder if I can get a Astro AWD system under the wagon. scratch

It is AWD, and the lever is the E-brake.

Ya, it only woulda taken me 1 practice round before I could complete the course like him... Shocked Razz
I'm staggered by the control of the vehicle. It's like HOLLYWOOD.
That footage at the end. Look at his face. All cool calm & collected.
Not worthy is an understatement

3 tries? Man, he sucks... Rolling Eyes

I'm sure he's ruined a few cars in his day... Wink

I have been watching that a couple times a day since Jalopnik dropped it, impressive no matter how many tries, and Steve is right, look at his face whenever they pan to him...The guy looks like he is enjoying every second of it and it comes naturally.

How would he top this for the next round? My money says him and Travis Pastrana have the equivalent of an automotive "Dance off"

Love what the car can do, absolutely brilliant advertising for his brand (DC Shoes), Monster, and even Ford. I don't think there is a car guy in the world who will not see this video.

Subaru pulled out of racing, no sponsorship so the drivers moved on.

I wonder how much the guy on the segway got paid to do that stunt. He's the real hero Wink


And Pastrana wouldn't be a good match up since he's more about racing and jumping then doing tricks. Now Pastrana on a bike against Block in a car would be a good show down.
