He's a pretty cool guy.
Saw him at Cars and Cofee.
Took some pictures of his car.

Why? It's just a little car with fat street tires. They're not even DOT slicks, they're off the shelf KDW's.

Funny thing is that car is safer than almost any car that is street legal.

probably for emissions, we have no regs. you can get 2 gallons per mile and have a steady plume of black smoke and we will register it

I'd like to see you handle a car down a twisting dirt road at 100 mph. This happens hundreds of time to even champions. Didn't you notice that his front wheel lifted on the last turn? that's what threw him off. According to your comment, are you saying that the pros suck when the mexicans dig holes purposly for a crash? Ignorance is bliss. stop hatin.

Yes...If he did his stilly videos in a battered old Mustang LX 5.0 hatchback on a worn out suspension and bald tires, or an early 1st gen Miata, it would be impressive. You can tell he's not a momentum driver though, and doesn't understand how to drive something that is not capable of breaking all four wheels loose.

Let's put him in a spec class full of stock Triumph Spitfires and see how he fares.

You must think Spain is in Mexico, too. Portugal doesn't even speak the same LANGUAGE as Mexico, how can they possibly be the same?

There are a lot of words ThunderbirdJunkie would use on you, but they would be lost because they have more than two syllables

Where was this at? I see he has a Michigan plate.

You can plate almost anything here. Very few rules and regulations compared to other states. I believe you just need a VIN and proof of insurance. I've seen some crazy things on the road, and I bet at least half of them were legal. [&:]

Why would you put a rally driver in a crappy little convertible? Or even a mustang? What you said makes no sense at all. Lets put Dave Mirra on a skate board while we're at it. Ken block is a professional driver, you are an armchair crewchief. Have you ever thought, ya know... maybe that he prefers to drive 4 wheel drivers cars over other types of cars?

You incorrectly presume ThunderbirdJunkie's women can put up with him for long enough to get married, and your silly little racist remark was equally awful.

I didnt know incorrectly labeling someone a "mexican" was awful. Thats like you mistakenly calling me French. I'm just notFrench.I wouldn't get all bent out of shape about it though. It happens. I could have used a racist word for mexicans, but im a better person than that. To restate the point of this conversation, you decided to jump in when i falsely acused Portugal of being "the mexicans"for digging holes in off road rally for the intention of a wreck. Did it bother you that much to where you had to jump in to defend them by trying to insult me? Ihave respect for you and your knowledge of rc thunderbirdjunkie. i'd like to not think otherwise.
