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.

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!

No harder to do this to a focus as it was to do to a fiesta.

It doesn't hurt that Ken has seemingly unlimited cash to foster his car bug. If I had his resources I'd be doing the same thing whether I was a good driver or not. He's out there having a hell of a lot of fun which is the name of the game!!! But in reality, Tanner Foust is a better driver and far more personable AND he drives pretty much an identically prepared Fiesta as well.

Note: while both Ken's and Tanner's cars are capable of 650+HP they rarely operate them at these levels (the motors are time bombs at those boost levels). For U.S. Rally both cars are tuned to under 400HP for more controllable wheel spin (read tire life). And for WRC competition (where Ken dabbles around) they aren't allowed to have more than 300HP.
