Hoonigans

What is that Hoonigan thing all about? Do they make parts or run a repair shop or just do tshirts and videos? They have got a lot of videos out there. Mostly of goofing in their small parking lot though.

Re: Hoonigans

Check this one out. I played it for the family on the TV one night. Everyone was pretty much speechless the whole time. Pretty much shut down a bunch of LA freeway. They have ones in SF and Baja Mexico as well.

A lot of the guys are associated with Nitro Circus, Jackass, Fantasy Factory and a few other shows.

Re: Hoonigans

I know they sponsor ken block....one heck of a drift driver
I think they're mostly clothing...not completely sure

from the urban dictionary... their words not mine..

Hoonigan
A person who operates a motor vehicle in an aggressive and unorthodox manner, consisting of, but not limited to, drifting, burn outs, doughnuts as well as acts of automotive aeronautics. One who f@#king hoons.

Re: Hoonigans

That would be so much fun in front of cops without them pulling you over...

Re: Hoonigans

Some of that looked like the real deal and some looked like a video game.
Dayem! I bet his insurance carriers lose plenty of sleep.
So I guess that guy who tore up the streets in his buggy and filmed it was trying to be Ken Block?

Re: Hoonigans

Im not 100% as I haven't seen all of the videos but I think that there have been a few different drivers. The videos that Ive watched seem to be getting progressively better. KB has been in the last 2 that Ive seen. Gymkana 7 being the last Im guessing that there is a Gymkana 1 maybe?

As far as being video game like... could be with all of the computer generated stuff out there these days. CG or not, being that I can barely back into the driveway without hitting a garbage can, I can watch G7 all day long and twice on Sunday and Im still blown away!

Re: Hoonigans

Somewhere along the way I lost a lot of the things I should think are cool, but instead think are dumb.

Too me drifting is just dumb. Not saying it doesn't take skill, I sure couldn't do it. Pikes Peak back in the day was the epitome of drifting, loved that. So who knows what happened to me ... Gotta get back on the porch now to yell at any kids that might be on my lawn at 9:30 PM =)

Re: Hoonigans

Same here. It's what people wish they could do if it was cool for the whole world to be punks. It's all just something to sell now that computers are the center of peoples' lives.

What Ken Block does s amazing and shows extreme skill. Drifting is what we enjoyed doing in dirt, mud, snow, and wet parking lots. Now they made it a competition. We just had fun and didn't tear our cars up. I've always thought thrashing anything is purely stupid. So is risking death or bodily harm just for a thrill.

Re: Hoonigans

Yeah mongo. I watched a good bit of their stuff yesterday including kb at ppeak. Hes either plum nuts or seriously has a death wish.
There was a vid posted here back last year of some guy in a high powered buggy running all over the place in town and being filmed while he did it some where in Cal i think. I believe he was arrested too. Iím sure one of you guys know the one iím talking about. Car was fast and he was running over landscape and city streets too. Crazy.
