Ken Block 'jumped ship' from Subaru and is now driving for Ford. Pay attention at 2:31 the wheel on the sedgway says "obama can't gymkhana"....LOL!
on that track 51 degrees.....Holy shit! what's Bristol, like 32 degrees?......man!
is the man
I want him for a get away driver!!!!!
Obviously the shifter is on the steering wheel. You can see him shift and the dash gear indicator goes up or down a notch. There's a large aluminum lever to his right. Is this spoiler control? Also, the bank of single dot LEDs to the left of the gear indicator. Is that a tachometer?
the LED's are a tach and the big aluminum lever is a giant emergency brake, that's how he induces so much spin, by 'hot braking' into corners.
in my VW bug, purple, with elk antlers on the roof.
to test drive a car......I would insist on getting two sets on tires since the factory one's obviously have some defects.
Schuyler you are so sophisticated....LOL! It's just like the turning brakes on a sand rail as the steering wheel is only good for backing it off of the trailer.
Back in the 60's you could go to just about any good size town in the midwest and SCCA had gymkhana courses in all the big parking lots.. Due to liability laws (even then) it was so much safer as you only have one car at a time on the course.. bunch a pylons and a big parking lot and your in bussiness..The only safty requirement was seat belt (not shoulder then) and a helmet and a 10 dollar entrance fee.. It sprung out of Rally driving.. As did the handbrake turn..
Hamp i had never heard it called "hot braking" till now, just handbrake turn, but ive been out of that world for 30 odd years.. I'm going to guess that nobody on here but Sam remembers who Pat Moss was (no relation to Sterling) .. she was a major Rally driver of the era for SAAB.. Ok enough trips down memory lane.. work to do..
caprice drunk just like that guy,with cops following,what the hell,i ain't impressed.
and I bet you "leap over tall buildings in a single bound" as well.....lol
