    psshh... ppl get 4wd or awd and others whine that they'll likely never put the vehicle in a situation where it needs the awd/4wd. These guys are doing some offroading with the awd and you're complaining... can't win! *LOL*

    Fun?? Fun would be pushing your car to the limits, following good lines and impressing yourself with your driving skills.

    Fun is not flying down the middle of the track, breaking way too late and putting your supercar into the dirt.

    That's your opinion. But who are you to say what's fun for someone else.

    Is that why you scoop up so many pylons when you are racing?

    Which would you rather? Someone has a capable car that they use to cruise chicks and get groceries or that they take it to the track and risk some damage? Its obvious from the video they're not professionals but at least they're out there learning. I don't see anything wrong with that video. (Other than they should have probably had some serious instructor time before they were set loose out there)

    Cool...... I'm gonna go get an STi and go out to AMP on the next lapping day and learn to race while there is lots of other cars on the track.

    Those cunts couldn't find an apex to save their lives. My point is that there is $200k in supercars out there and they are damn lucky they didn't kill themselves.

    So what.. just because someone can afford a 200+ K car doesn't mean they are going to automatically have the proper skills to drive like a professional on a track. Like Gord said, they are out there enjoying themselves learning, wrather then cruising spring garden road trying to pick up a fake pair of titties. With learning on a race track comes a risk, they are taking that risk and obviously having fun at the same time. I see nothing wrong with the video.

    I'd much rather you did than than to buy an STi to cruise the park all the time. Or even worse yet prove your manhood at stop lights.

    Like I said, they definitely needed more instructor time and a similar setup would never be allowed at AMP, but at least they're out there.

    At least their at the track and not on the roads doing it. They really should be taking it a bit easier until they get used to the track and find a line though......

    Scoop up so many pylons? Damn, I didn't even know I had been out racing. I'm actually not a racer and wouldn't take my car to the track to do that. BillyBob is just jealous because he doesn't have a "supercar".

    I know what you're saying Gord, and its good that they are on the track learning instead of on public roads, but they had like 5 near misses in that vid alone! :rofl:


    My point is: They should be out there by themselves, that way thay can drive their cars the way supercars were meant to be driven and learn how to handle their limits, without risking the lives of the rest of the people out there.

    NONE of those cars in the video even comes remotely close to being in the same realm as that of a supercar. They are SO far off it's not even funny, and referring to an STi as a supercar is probably the single most retarded comment I have ever heard in my entire life!
