    The rollos say they push the limits a little. The rally driving one was more fun.

    Still trying to master the Swedish Flick myself. It’s different with FWD than with the RWD car in the video. I can get the car sliding into a right or left hand turn no prob, but smoothly mastering the transition to the opposite direction exactly when desired and while not losing lots of speed is the trick. So I need to practice more! And winter’s coming! Easier to learn at low speeds on snow!

    Rally drivers in general are pretty amazing. A guy I know used to co-drive on the WRC. I sent him the “Tribute to Rallying” video a few months ago. He knew a bunch of the guys in it and said, “You know, someone looking at this would have to ask, ‘what the hell are these people doing?'”
