Watching that I'm thinking "pocketbike track".

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

my friends have some drift cars, maybe I can convince them to let me take one of them out to Strats next time I come out.

Sweet vid and cars, those guys can drive those little pups

Chills has the right idea... some fun would be the pocket bike godzilla while the cars drift in unholy fear!!!

Causally determined by various factors, only some of which I know about.

THAT is bad-ass.

I've spent most of the morning cruising the web boards at RCDrift.com. Some cool stuff. Apparently most guys use PVC pipe in place of rubber tires. LOL... I never would've thought of that.

This looks fun enough that I think I'm gonna hit the storage place after work tonight and dig my old RC stuff out. Quick trip to Home Depot and I might be off and drifting I just hope my batteries are still useable...

You can also get the same effect by wrapping the tires in electrical tape
