    When inches count between glory and gory I vote for Ken Block.

    While very impressive race prepped machinery I am old school in that I respected driver's skills more in the days before traction control and bouncing engines off rev limiters. Back then it was up to drivers to keep engine alive and the rubber side down. At least the Mustang has a sequential gearbox.

    Makes you wonder if he was trying what kind of time he'd have?

    I'd wear a respirator. Burning rubber smells awful.
    At least this is less wasteful and takes more skill then break burns and donuts in a parking lot. Driving like this was hard enough in video games but it gave me some appreciation for the skill level.
