Watch as Tanner Foust travels through time racing six different vehicles in the video Quantum Drift.

This week, while browsing through some of the YouTube racing videos I had saved throughout the year, I began to realize there are still a lot of good videos that I have not had the time to write about in 2016.

And more often than not, these videos end up getting pushed into the dreaded “save-it-for-later pile,” forced to collect dust in the cache of video files on my computer.

Well, I just finished watching the new Tanner Foust video titled “Quantum Drift” and thought it was just too good to pass up.

I also noticed that the video has not really gotten a ton of views yet which to me is a shame because it is based off a TV show that I used to watch and enjoy as a kid.

The video is based off the old NBC sci-fi series Quantum Leap, which was a personal favorite of mine back in the day. In the TV series, the main character Sam was able to make a “Leap” back in time, into the body of a person from the past to either help a person in need or “right a wrong” that had been committed in that particular time period.

If you have never watched it, I recommend trying to dig up an old episode because it really made for some good television back in a time where there was no Netflix or Amazon Prime for viewers to bring up an episode on demand.

In the Quantum Drift version, Foust makes a “leap” right into the driver’s seat of a number of different vehicles, including a Polaris RZR, his Rockstar Energy Volkswagen Bettle, his other car, (which just happens to be a 900 hp Passat!), and even a boat.

Another reason I like this particular video is the camera work that is involved. The first-person view in the driver’s seat has some real potential for some good 360 VR shots.

The video was produced by Donut Media, and this video team has had a huge year in 2016. I am interested to see if they have any plans of adding the very popular 360 VR views into their videos in 2017.

So what do you guys think of Tanner Foust’s video Quantum Drift? Did it bring back memories of the TV series Quantum Leap? Hit us up @ArtofGears and let us know.
