      Hey everyone - I'm in Round 2 of a video contest thru Hot Wheels & Ken Block currently and part of the judging is on viralness/promotion, so figured I'd bring it to the 'tex.

      I made the first cut of the contest with this video from Sno*Drift this year:

      The 2nd round includes making a video w/ the Fiesta RC car that they sent me. If you like it, spread the word and help me get views! Thanks for watching.

      Sorry to see your vid didn't make it to the top 7
      I was really surprised at some of the choices as well as some of the omissions. I did like both of your entries though, cool work. Those cars were frikn hard to drive along a planned path! Unless of course you were just going for random donuts all over the place

      FWIW, there's still another VW enthusiast that did make top 7, "Gym-Khana", Keith's and my entry.
      If you don't mind, please vote for us, and keep the VW peeps in the lead!!
      Cheers,
      Eric

      Thanks...liked your video too, nice work as well!

      I passed the word onto my local VW forum.

      Unfortunately, the fact that Autoblog & Ken Block both posted the Venice Beach video, that kinda sealed the deal then

      And yes, very hard to drive!...my blooper reel...I blamed my driver for my loss haha:

      Awesome blooper reel! I gotta talk to our team and see if we dare put something together for bloopers... the cars did take a beating

      Yeah, the voting was totally messed and irratic, and to have the organizers controlling the popularity of the video 'they' clearly wanted to win, there really wasn't much point to the whole exercise anyway.
