    Was that car a 4 wheel drive? At times it looked as if he was burning rubber with all four wheels.
    I may be getting a little older physically but mentally I'm still tarp as a shack.

    Talk about driving the wheels off a car. There are a bunch of Ken Block videos around...he's an ace at what he does. Crazy, but an ace nonetheless.

    I was wondering also.

    But I'm more curious about the controls. I can see that he has paddle shifters, as you see him using them throughout the video. But then what is that tall silver lever sitting out where most of us have a stickshift? I wondered if it was a hand brake, but then at other times he wasn't using it when I thought he'd be braking...
    There's usually more than one way to do it...

    I'm pretty sure it's a handbrake...

    I assumed it was an enlarged E-brake handle and that is what gave the impression of 4 wheel drive. Rear wheels drifting and braked while front wheels were spinning and pulling.
