    I wish he could drive that well in a rally. Maybe with enough practice.

    Just as I was thinking his tires can not last through all of this the rears disintegrate. Nice video at a wonderful venue.

    That was fun to watch. I wonder how many tires that guy goes thru in a week. Should do another episode with Captain Slow as a passenger :lol:

    I think everybody forgets that these videos are well rehearsed (see the tire tracks) and not from one continuous shot. He does these runs dozens of times and the best of each section are stitched together to make one kickass video. We saw this with the second video where he was drifting in a circular area with a tire wall and kissed the edge - the rear bumper skin came loose and then in the very next shot, it was all nice and normal.
