Lots and lots of pissed off highway commuters visible in the background @ 9:50.

Entertaining as always, though.

That was a fun watch. From the looks of the tire tracks, it seems like there were only about 3-5 "takes". I liked the part with the g-body on hydros.

Roughly 4:00 mark - donuts around what appears to be a wrecked WRX/STi shell!

I had to try to convince a co-worker that drifting is not the fastest way around the corner. He remains incorrect. Honestly, I can see the guy is a good driver, but there isn't much to me that appeals to me. It's like skateboarding and ballet.

800+ horsepower, wasting who knows how many sets of tires in an awd muscle car through city streets with no real reason?

This appeals to me.

Its not about speed, its about car control. Block has become very good at it.

before he wrecked the car....

I think the car looks awesome but would be a bit awesomer if it were raked forward a bit more. Seemed like it looked oddly 'prerunner' for a 65 mustang.

I'm not trying to hate. He has phenomenal car control skills, but his marketing skills are even better.

I agree and that is why most people hate on Block - he is living the dream. Flying around in fast cars on other people's money.

Look at some of the skid marks on the video, in many cases he puts the car right back on the same spot over and over.

The first loop around the doughnut shop is fresh tire marks. I love what Block does. I also want that motor in my Wagon. The sounds, what glorious sounds.

Looked like he almost snagged a wheel stop at the doughnut shop.

How can he see where he is going with all that tire smoke in the cabin?

It makes all kinds of the right noises, thats for sure. I still think 5 has my favorite clip- he jumps sideways up a hill, and they do a pan shift of the Car mid air. Gets me every time.

Ken Block who?

I enjoyed it. He does have the marketing game down, although I don't buy his stuff. What I did find odd though is you never saw his face in this one. Was it really him?

Really Good. Probably my second-favourite Gymkhana, next to San-Fran.

Around 6:55 we see he didn't pull the safety pin on the fire suppression. Somebody think of the childrens!!

Yeah, awesome job as always! The little details seem to be getting better with each vid...not that his driving is getting worse.

Go to a dirt track and tell them that.

Don't care for the videos either.
