My girlfriend used to live literally next door to where Ford's rally cars are made, and I'm 99% positive this was made there too. IIRC, this thing has 680bhp under the hood. I work just down the road from there too. The place is fucking HUGE. We do alot of the cutting on their bonnets with our waterjet machines.

Here's the last one...

His video's are awesome and I wish I could drive like him but every time I watch one I can't help but think what he's doing isn't all that special; I mean the majority of professional rally drivers should be able to do this kind of shit right? Ken Block hasn't actually won anything as far as I know.

I used to think that, but after watching his stuff a few more times I've decided that it's not what he does - it's the accuracy with which he does it. The majority of International Licence holders would clearly be capable of that, but I think Block's in-tune-ness with his vehicle is the clincher - he makes a point of missing things by inches, of hitting ballons with his rear bumper while drifting, of doing handbrake turns over 20 fluorescent lightbulbs.

It's not the driving style; it's the accuracy.

Doesn't matter who's won anything in rally, Colin McRae > Richard Burns> *

It's this kind of shit that makes me wonder why this country is so enamored with NASCAR, when that's just a bunch of hillbillies going in a circle.

Bingo! This is infinitely more entertaining than that shit.

Especially when you have circuits like Laguna Seca and racing series like ALMS and used to have the amazing ChampCar. :scratch:
