There’s a good reason Ken Block’s gymkhana videos have racked up millions of YouTube views: they show off an extreme level of driving skill that most of us can only dream about. Drifting RC cars is a slightly more achievable and affordable goal, but it still must take untold hours of practice to reach the skill level of the drivers controlling these tiny drifters.

The best part about watching the team at HPI Racing masterfully maneuver its miniature version of Ken Block’s car around this 1:18-scale track is that it’s one of those stunts you can most definitely try at home. You probably don’t want to drive your family’s minivan like this, of course, but your insurance company is going to care if you accidentally crash an RC car into a bunch of empty pop cans.
