It looked like he had brakes on his front tires. When he was in the orange and white barrier "box" I saw smoke coming off of his inside front tire. Was that just from the show he created, or is his car setup like that?

cool video

The front brakes

are standard issue Brembo 6 piston (rally spec), the only brake trickery was when he yanked up the E-brake to round the cone near that wall, everything else was pure power steer. Hell, he just smoked about $800 worth of rubber.

Wow that looked like they had fun makin that vid, I'd pay money just to sit in the passenger seat while he did that..... I wonder how long a set of tires lasts him my guess is about 3 minits 23 seconds.

Nothing is as risky as certain failure.

I dunno Ooze

I run my Subie in SCCA events out at Miller Motorsports Park so I am used to going fast but I would be scared shitless riding with Block in a Rallycross event. One needs to remember that those crazies are shooting along at 100+ mph through the trees in the ice and snow, no thanks!

I would like to able to drive like that with a DMV guy in the car with me. That would be fun. On that note later fella's got to head offshore in the morning

If you carry a gun, people call you paranoid. Nonsense! If you have a gun, what do you have to be paranoid about?
