Ok, I love the first ones, but I can't help but wonder, what's with all of the "popping" noises coming from this new (Ford) car?
between his previously shown talent for smashing mercury filled cfl bulbs and now his knack for 'hot boxing' dudes on fat guy security guard scooters, a 3M respirator sponsorship should be a top priority in the up coming season.
insane driving throughout though.
the spun off tires at the end was a bit much.. he's f ucked broke when the carbon cap and trade laws set in
Drifting is ghey.
its the anti-lag system and him bouncing off the rev limiter
the cool thing to do:
also posted earlier in the YT thread
Ewwww yuck. Car people.
Cool, my '88 suzuki sidekick does that too. But only in the morning.. never at night
Dear God, that's a lot of raw fuel getting dumped.
'merica, fvck yeah!
i bet it smells amazing with a race car running super high octane
I see that kind of driving all the time at 99 Ranch.
has he won anything yet?
i'm also happy i have never bought a pair of DC shoes.
and i'm sure the people that own the track were thrilled with the resulting damage to the road surface
i don't think that track has been used for anything in awhile....it has a problem with people dying there.
And yes, it does smell fantastic. Especially mixed with burnt rubber!
jim haven't you done gymkhana before? or do you do strictly autocross/rallycross?
Wonder if Vouilloz could top him!
only in American rally...which means absolutely nothing to the rest of the world.
he's currently in last place in the WRC and will probably continue to bring up the rear
Probably, Vouilloz actually spent time working his way up the ladder and may know how to drive.
certainly not my respect as a driver!
Sometimes it would be fun to be ridiculously rich. I should try it sometime.
The guy made a sh!t load of money and now goes out and has a ton of fun doing something he loves. Can't hate on that.
its all advertising for DC Shoes. why not have fun, while spending your money to advertise your company?
0-60mph in 1.9sec? Damn...
Im not in love with Block, and I have no particular interest in these kinds of cars or drifting. But I buy DC products all the time and I think this movie is fukkin awsome.
Does that still mean Im gay?
when you have all that power at launch, its easy to get there that fast.
and yes. flamer
Burnt racing fuel is a wonderful smell
yes it is. it smells like HP and fun to me.
I like the one piece of raw driving not of the whole thing when he dives into the bank in the opening segment and immediately smacks the crap out of the wall.
Wonder how much that segment cost?
Im glad I had to google that one...
Call me flamer one more time and Ill smack you with my purse!
ha. you might want to delete those search results from your browser.
He's an updated version of the Jamaican bobsled team.
Someone watched Tokyo Drift one too many times.
I still dont get it. Why does the anti-lag system make that noise?
Inquiring minds are intrigued by this as I have never heard of it before and would like to know how this works...
funny guy... i have been googling the topic since it was first posted. still a little confused where the noise is coming from so asked IH8Rice since he seemed to know about it. smartass.
specifically... if the same processes are going on, why are toyota/mitsubishi systems quiet while ford/subaru are loud
Basically, the the extra fuel that is dumped into the combustion chamber results in incomplete combustion in the cylinder. This leads to prolonged flame front as the charge is moved out through the head, into the exhaust manifold and the turbo. This is hard on the turbo and the exhaust valves and guides naturally. This combined with the fact that you need to address cam timing issues to take full advantage of such as system is why you only see it on vehicles like this.
The thought here is that the extra energy stored as a compressed gas mixture in the exhaust system after a downshift will keep the turbo spooled for the next gear. Less lag, more uninterrupted boost and therefore available power to move the car.
The popping is a result of unburned fuel in the exhaust as it exits the car. Basically, you have that fuel suspended in an extremely hot gas mixture without adequate oxygen to form a flame kernel. The fuel is there, atomized, and hot enough to combust, but there is no oxygen to react with. Once it makes its way to the end of the exhaust, atmospheric oxygen completes the equation and you get BRAPBRAPBRAPBRAP.
To answer Jon's question, I've raced autox, rallyx, stage rally, SCCA club road racing, hillclimbs, and I've done 2 Gymkhana events.
Fun fact: My 911 does this as well, but not because of an anti lag system. The way the mechanical fuel injection works on my car creates a slight lag between throttle off and fuel reduction that replicates this. That combined with my :cough: minimalist exhaust results in 3' or so flames out both sides of my car when I shift.
this should be easiest to understand the banging noise you are hearing... a ALS system basically keep the turbos spooled up enough to prevent lag that all turbos suffer from, especially high performance models.
each car has their own unique sound to them (obviously) and each form of ALS has their own unique sound too
I would actually love to watch Nascar if they made the course similar to that one.
