    How is he supposed to learn good driving and car control if he only floors it in a straight line? I think its a great idea if its at the right time and place! otherwise he'll be stuck drag racing the rest of his life.Seems to me that all the stories posted here don't relate to this young gun. He wasn't speeding he wasn't showing off, and he's well aware of his surroundings. You can't tell me that 99% of members on here haven't given their car a quick blast on the street or done u burnout at some stage. Give the kid a break. As a father of 3 I would never condone stupidity on the street and thats just not what it seems to me. See if you can find an autocross or something on a weekend Amzchad, It'll top anything you can do on the street tenfold!

    Alright man... do what you want. But if you end up in a ditch like my friend in his car... dont look for pity on here because you've been warned by many people. Have fun with it, just don't hurt yourself.

    Then I grew up.

    Well, I'm getting a little concerned here. This and other posts indicate that there is a certain element here which considers a little street mayhem good for the soul. Earlier this year, there was a local police officer/car enthusiast who was killed off duty while "stunting", (local paper's term for burning donuts on the highway). He had a bad ass mustang and was a frequent show participant. This fellow was obviously trained in hi performance driving and should have known what the consequences might be, but that did not save him from the semitruck that flattened him and his car as he burned a couple late at night on what he thought was deserted highway. Tragic.

    I do applaud your good sense in heading for the EVOC course. It is a good thing to know how your vehicle behaves under extreme conditions and we would all be better drivers if we knew where the limits of our vehicles and our abilities were. Best to find this out under controlled conditions, but you won't find those on public roads.

    Lets see...... You are so great and in control that you have wrecked a car and got a ticket....

    For every dollar you spend on insurance that is one dollar you can't spend on your car or shmoozing the ladies.

    I pay $110 a year for a full coverage collector car policy on my Barracuda. How much do you pay?

    A thousand little brats talk big like you every year..... Right up to the point that they hit a 4 year old they never saw.



    I know you won't understand a thing I am saying.... So just enjoy the $400 a month insurance bill you are heading for.

    Enjoy never getting laid because after insurance and working on the car you can't afford taking a chick out.


    When you are about 35 you will get it.

    Actually that depends on how you are legally identifying yourself.

    driving a motor vehicle is a privilege granted to you by the Government

    traveling in an automobile is an inherent sovereign right, preexisting, ie; No government is giving you permission and you are free to travel as long as you don't break common laws, harm or injure another or their property

    regarding tickets and citations, see the difference between a Statute and a Law, what makes a statute enforceable, etc (all tickets are derived from statutes)

    I agree about the safety issue mentioned in the above posts, a beast can get away REAL fast.

    Be safe, not stupid.

    I,m not impressed by people acting a fool and bragging about not getting a ticket. if that isnt what he,s doing what is the purpose of this post?
