    Ken Block 171 Foot Jump

    Haven't see this posted here or the Vid section yet so I thought I'd start it here. I know I know...probably will get the boot to the Vid section, but though that it deserved a start in the proper forum IMO!!

    An escalator can never break. It can only become stairs. You would never see an ‘Escalator Temporarily Out Of Order’ sign, just ‘Escalator Temporarily Stairs. Sorry for the convenience.’ - Mitch Hedberg

    There was a pic a few years back of Markko Martin (IIRC) in Rally Finland, where fans had marked the distance from the take-off point of a "yump". He was touching down on the 55 meter mark. That's about the same distance, and without any special ramps. The height Ken gets with those ramps is mighty impressive, though!

    Yeah, it is impressive! I cringed when I saw the cracked windshield.

    I don't think these struts were too happy about it either, lol.
    I wonder if the car's bottom struck the ground? Looks like it might have. That would be a pretty hard landing!
