In Gymkhana 6, Ken Block slides again

DC's resident shoe salesman returns for his latest installment of Gymkhana. For those unaware of Ken Block's viral antics, he takes his rally car -- in this case, the 2013 Ford Fiesta ST RX43 -- and navigates an unimaginably difficult course in the smokiest, most spectacular fashion possible. In Gymkhana 5, his playground was the urban jungle that is San Francisco, sliding around moving cable cars and jumping higher than Snoop.

Gymkhana 6 is different: It's like a cross between Need For Speed and Super Mario Kart. It involves a vast expanse of concrete, a wrecking ball, a loader/excavator's love child, two men on a Segway, and an awful lot of tire smoke.

That last part, in fact, is different in no way whatsoever. Which is just the way we like it.
