This radio-controlled tribute to Ken Block's Gymkahana 6 is half the length but perhaps twice as hard. HPI racing makes R/C car kits, and to announce their officially licensed version of Block's World Rally Championship Ford Fiesta, they laid out a track mimicking stunts from the most recent drift-o-matic obstacle course.

So, no, we can't say it's actually twice as hard as what Block's done, but when you watch what HPI's remote operator does at 1/8-scale with just a trigger and a wheel, well, it's still mighty impressive – even if there are no Ninja Turtles or dinosaurs involved. You can check it out below.

      Micro RS4 is 1/18th. HPI produces a bigger version of the Ken Block car, but it's the ~1/9th scale WR8 flux model.

      I liked this video better than the full size one.

      Yeah, that car isn't 1/8th scale. Looks like it's from their "Micro scale" lineup. It wouldn't easily fit in his hand at 1/8th.
