Watch Momkhana Spoof Ken Block With Suburb-Drifting Minivan

E-brake slides and soccer mom burnouts

Professional rally driver Ken Block’s series of Gymkhana videos has proved popular, inspiring several spoofs and imitations. Now, retail shoe store Famous Footwear has released its take on the phenomenon. Titled "Momkhana," the video follows a mother and her two kids as they drift the family minivan from the suburbs to the shoe store.

The star of Momkhana is a Toyota Sienna minivan with a GM LS engine swap that's been converted to rear-wheel drive. In the video, the mom drifts the minivan around the median, does donuts in a cul-de-sac, and slalom drifts through a maze of recycle bins. After slowing for a school zone, the mom floors the Sienna and drifts it the rest of the way to the store.

While few details about the powertrain are given, the video claims the GM LS series engine produces around 550 hp. Additionally, a second behind-the-scenes video shows how the video was produced without endangering the mother or children as well as a few vehicle mishaps. The engine swap and rear-drive conversion took two weeks according to the second video.

Check out Momkhana and the behind-the scenes video below.
