    10 years already? wow.

    Good way to retire I guess.
    Can't say i'll miss them though. If anything, i'm sick of seeing the Monster liveries.

    Hey, if I was sponsored by a big energy drink company, I would slap a big fat sticker on my car too :)

    Oh yeah defintiely. But it's just not a pretty livery to look at and i've gotten tired of it just as much as I hate the redbull liveries now that they're everywhere as well x)

    Man, that Hoonitruck sounds nothing like its rendition in Forza Horizon 4.

    It's still a spectacular beast of a car, it's just so huge of a vehicle!

    I guess this seals it... I'll never get the appeal of drifting.
    (Not to mention this super-staged, edited and ad-infested kind.)
    PS: I'd be ALL OVER seeing all the mishaps of this, tho!

    I'd be much more impressed if the road he driving on wasn't covered in tyre marks from previous attempts.

    There is a beauty in this kind of driving even if it takes lots of tries to get it right(the tire marks already being there),difficult maneuvers not taking a racing line and going sideways instead of the usual way.I will definetly miss Gymkhana.

    I don't think Gymkhana is going anywhere, it's just that Block will no longer do them. I'm not sure how many people watched the video yet, but at the very end, it looks like Pastrana will take over doing them. I'm not sure how that will work though since he's sponsored by Subaru instead of Ford.

    I can't say I was a fan of the guy.

    I personally think the series peaked at #5 with the drive in San Francisco.

    Still, every time I see that Hoonicorn Mustang... :eek::nervous:

    And Red Bull instead of Monster. Which when combined made the ending kind of awkward. :lol:

    Familiarity bred contempt.
