At first I thought that the drifting through the cutout wall segment was a bit too long, and was pointless destruction. But you could feel the genuine concern for the car when he broke the windshield, he feels the cars' pain like his own skin, which is a welcome contrast to CHM's complete disregard towards destruction of perfectly drivable vehicles. And the payoff was excellent - even I started applauding when Chris went through.
Their arguments for super/not super car wasn't 100% credible so the bickering isn't natural yet, but it will get there. Unfortunately things got silly at the end when they drove around on the mountain. The race was over when Chris got stuck. He's fast, but cant make up 30 minutes of rescue. Also, they didn't talk about what tires they changed to, and the second part in the sunshine was probably another day all together. If it can't be done properly, either don't do it or explain why it's crap. Don't try to get away with shit like this thinking the audience is too stupid to notice.
