    First of the Pastrana Gymkhana videos was released today - I was not disappointed. The guy is crazzzzzzzy, haha.



    I think the thing I find most entertaining is Pastrana's facial expressions. Block was always just a straight-faced and focused, Pastrana actually looked a little scared during some of the stunts, probably because they WERE scary as Hell, lol. Either way, I couldn't imagine a better person to take over the reins.

    The country road jump at 150mph is about the scariest jump I've ever seen. Lots of big trees.

    That was insane! I am surprised he didn’t bite it on the big jump.

    LMAO. So true.

    The 150mph jump had me holding my breath for sure.

    Car control is unreal, so is bouncing of the limiter.

    That 150mph jump was nuts. What looked like a 1ft ramp got him a good 6 or 7 feet at least

    He is one of the few people on this earth that could die tomorrow and still truly say they lived life to the absolute balls-to-the-wall fullest. Effing nuts!!!

    Some truly outstanding shit going on there. I mean damn! Listen to that boat. Check the airplane stunt.

    Needs about 6 minutes less of bouncing off the rev limiter and I'd give it 5 stars.

    Thanks for posting, freaking awesome skills!
    Too bad I'm a broke bitch, because I would pay a lot of cash to have been on that ride.

    I've enjoyed watching him since the Crusty Demons days in the 90's. He never disappoints.

    All I heard and still hear is a pissed off swarm of killer bees bouncing off a rev limiter.

    He definitely puckered on the landing of the high speed jump. Don’t blame him one bit. I’d need new shorts taking a jump like that at 55.

    Some of the slow controlled donuts are meh to me, but the higher speed drifts are pretty sweet.

    At least he actually has genuine skills from being in auto/moto sports for a long time aiding him and it made it enjoyable to watch unlike the hack block that just has people build his stuff and throw a ton of money at it which gets boring because you know he can't drive for s*** in rally and his heavy reliance on awd platforms. Didn't know TP was doing this kind of stuff but I think he should meet up with BJ Baldwin and do one because they're both batshit crazy.

    I guess I'm in the minority. Don't get me wrong, I love all the stunts, the insane car control, and was quite amused by his facial expressions( doesn't look as robotic as Block). But, I had to finally lower the volume I can't stomach the import crowd bouncing off the limiter constantly.
