I think most people on here have probably seen it given that we're Ford fans. But thank you for pointing out once again that the Fiesta Rally/Rallycross cars are amazing! 650hp/660ft lbs. from a 1.6L...no problem.
The only thing that could make this (and all of his gymkhana) video(s) better would be if Ken Block wasn't such a failboat rally driver.

It's a 2.0 liter engine. It's 95% rally car technology and 5% fiesta

This. Other than heavily modded body there isn't much fiesta in there.

I am well aware that there isn't much Fiesta left in there, I was simply pointing out that the 1.6L displacement remains intact.

That is true. Maybe what I meant to say was that Ken Block isn't the greatest driver, sorry. Notice how he hits the wall immediately. This being said, I can't deny that I do enjoy the videos.

Video is fun to watch. Remember it from over a year ago. They could do the same thing with a Focus.

i think it would be hard considering that this Fiesta is AWD.
Agreed, Ken Block isn't the best rally racer, but he sure can maneuver a car like it's nobodies business!
