VERY impressive stuff (presumably, the 4WD is modified to provide greater rearward bias to the drive?)

BUT!
1. It's not as fast as DS
2. You can get a new DS machine in lieu of a few minutes tyre wear.


P.S.
Any wealthy girls reading: please note, I too need such a toy.

Bad A$$! Looks like a tire commercial -- how to smoke $1K in tires in 5 minutes or less.

Awesome driving whoever it was

My brother owns one of these cars, (not the highly modified sort but slightly more than stock trim) and he showed me this video a few weeks ago. He told me that his car has a 40/60 torque split between the front and rear which makes it very tossable. Real fun cars to drive in the snow and wet. My bro autocrosses his and goes through tires pretty quick but not like this guy.

I saw that video a month or so ago, definately awesome. My personal fave is going through the hanger while doing a 360. A buddy once had a WRX STi, but it wasn't done up like Ken Blocks car. It sure was fun to hit a dirt road with though!!!

For those that like tight driving, you may take a look at this as well...
