I know we all have fantasized about this at one time or another. Such a sick video by DC.
Realistically, how much do you think it cost to make this? Guessing 2M. I hope Monster and DC got their money's worth!
Did they coordinate this with one of the Bay Bridge shutdowns, or what?
I'm surprised Monster/DC were able to get this past all the NIMBY's (especially to move all the parked cars off the road course).
I love the GoPro shots from the wheel wells showing massive suspension travel. Pretty fun for someone who autocrosses (though who doesn't care for the drift culture) and takes a few SF turns in a spirited manner now and then. The Fremont St. offramp's big, sweeper right and the left onto Fremont is one of my faves.
Definitely one-ups Bullitt with the Taylor street jump.
Mmm...donutts! I like this one as well.
So to do this all I need are the shoes, right?
They closed down the street in front of my aunts house. Scared the dogs and cats, blocked her driveway, and didnt clean off all of the rubber tracks left on the road out front. The day sucked, She got no money. All this and for what?? So some kid will want to buy sweatshop made shoes or drink some poisonous energy drink? This all went down maybe 2 months ago? Total bummer...
On a positive note They closed the bridge early on a weekend morning which I actually kind of enjoy because it kept people out.... albeit only for 20 minutes..
IT ALL MAKES SENSE NOW.
driving home one night to Potrero Hill I saw a ton of people standing around and the street blocked off. i was confused, then all the sudden a car went launching off the hill a block down from me. then i was REALLY confused... i thought they were filming a movie or something, but if you look at it, they make a fairly lentghy stop on the west side of potrero hill before heading up poor mans lombard. probably the closest they could get to filming this video on real mans lombard...
thank god that was not about surfing ob. getting too crowded as it is.
my understanding "the city "made a cool million... and yes they have to clean up the burnt rubber... maybe now they can fix the pot holes in the roads!!!
Why do people care about the rubber? If anything, it gives the road more traction ;)
Pet moods are definitely a negative externality*, though. Bummer.
*why is firefox giving me spellcheck static?
Pretty unreal video, but I'm just glad I'm not an environmentalist watching this. Would drive me bat-shit crazy.
Rubber is organic, and petrol is made from recycled dinosaur remains, so I don't see what the big deal is.
@ zappalives - Up on the Bay bridge, between the second and third arch, the donuts that guy burned are still on the pavement. Perfect circles.
