A hill climb competition, clearly displays the differences between American brute horsepower vs other countries' engineering.

Great job of keeping that Mustang under control ... but what use is all that torque if all you do is spin your wheels?

While there are different horses for different courses, you have to ride what you brought.

I am sure the guys there got more out of their cars than I would have.

The Escort RS2000 gets my vote, considering its age, closely followed by the VW Golf or the Opel Kadett. Modified combines ......... wow !

Nah, he was doing that on purpose. Drifting is considered stylish in certain circles. Probably would have been faster if he'd kept the wheels from spinning.

Oh, you Americans and your Alternative facts...

There were some very brave drivers in that video. Best car for my money would be the WRX. The one in the video wasnt doing that well, but it did better than the Evo.

More Mustang, this driver has it.

Violates all the riles of good graphic design. Way too many different fonts on that car.

Riles are meant to be broken.

Well the Mustang wasn't setting any records, but his car control is pretty phenomenal.
RS2000 looked the most committed, very quick.
