I was equally impressed with the cinematography as I was the riding/driving. There were some very well laid out HD shots in there; that little RC car was cool too!

But why did they put a Fart Can Exhaust on it? I guess to apease the drift crowd, the engine sounds great with a good Flowmaster or MagnaFlow onit, it would sound more like the Corvette it came out of.

Very Cool Video none the less, and the RC Camera shots were very cool, and that little thing is pretty fast!

Any MotoGP rider can do that without the gay-ass extended swingarm.

The extended swingarm is probably necessary to keep the front down

thats what i was thinkin.... every time i have seen a motogp dude pull an on power drift it usually ends up with the front tire commin up.... granted they are probably running MUCH sticker tires in the rear.

Love this vid, wish it's quality would be a little better

eh, backin it in and what the OP vid is doing is quite different IMO.... ur talkin just a slide during breaking... which i have found is MUCH easier to control than an on power slid out of a turn / during a turn which is what they are doing in the op's vid.

Dont get me wrong, there is an art to backin it in, and man it looks fuggin cool... but the worst that could happen is the back tire catches and the bike straightens out.... on the contrary on power, ur in a constant state of o fuck to much gas and i could have a nice lowside or go to far let off gas and have a high side.

Cool vid btw.... i so want a motard... id have WAY WAY to much fun on a DRZ400... probably get so many tickets for being plain hooligan.

to me it looks like he is combing the two: he goes into the turn in a power slide and later controls it just like you would backing it in.

ya, obviously if you were on the gas the whole time ud be carrying way to much speed.... so yes its a combo of the two.... the later (on power sliding) is harder... much harder IMO.
