@alfa02. First of all I would have to want in the door. I personally prefer driving more than looking at cars, but to each there own. I have plenty of experience in exotic and fast cars with a variety of different clubs. Ferrari, Jag, Holigan, Ducati clubs etc. On track and off track. I have been offered rides by race teams. I have declined some because of some of the other drives at those races. Ron Fellows, Butch Litzinger etc. Butch said I should have raced as I have better car control than most of the guys out there. Yes but I didn't want to be that guy who got in front of Ron or Butch and ruined the day. The guy who took my seat ended up totaling the car hitting a wall and oiling the track. Yes I have been seen drifting a car a time or 2 on public streets- yes the horror. Not once has anyone ever accused me of a stupid pass or endangering another person or their car and being out of control. I have seen many people asked to not return to events. I seen people get hurt bad trying to cash that check you speak about. On and off the track.

To be honest I treat you all the same with zero discrimination until I see what you can do behind the wheel. If you want to see breaking the law run with the crotch rocket gang a time or too. No laws more just guidelines.

On drives. Rule one. Keep it slow and safe towards the back of the pack to access the days yahoo's. Yes I am getting accessed too. Note the yahoo's and stay very clear all day! Let the ambitious chase out the popo up front. Work my way forward to the back of the fast group. Access who is pushing past their ability and again stay very clear. Big wallets can buy fast cars but not skills because big ego's prevent some from seeking knowledge from instructors. Drive your drive and stay clear of the yahoo's.

Was out with the Ducati boys on hot run to Winkleman. I have a Monster 1200 R- Naked bike with no plastic so I am never going to be out front setting the pace. Mid-pack with the fast group is my spot. Do I push them sometimes when I can use my torque off the line or coming out of slower corners before they can get wound up. When feeling good of course I do. But you always ride your ride. You start chasing and following on or off the track you will find yourself quickly getting in trouble. Drive your drive, stick to your lines not theirs. We came up a about 1/2 a dozen Cobras running pretty hard. Front bikes slowed and we bunched up a bit as the road is twisty and not a lot of legal passing spots. On a bike you don't need much to get by and I have seen crazy's just blast the center sandy line and shoot the gap. Mental note- stay clear of this yahoo as he is willing to take way more risk than eye. A little spot opens and boys are back on the gas. At illegal speeds the first bike drops a couple gears and slip the clutch and up comes the front wheel. High speed wheelie pass is way too risky for me but it sure did look awesome. 3 or 4 more bikes wheelie past and then the rest of the fast group. We stopped in Winkleman for gas and as we were fueling up I said to the boys "Cobra's are going to need fuel and we are going to hear their thoughts on a few of those very sketchy passes." I few minutes later the rest of the bikes and the Cobras start rolling in as we were done topping off. Lead Cobra comes straight for us and comes to quick stop and he pops out of the car. He is walking fast and with purpose and this could get interesting as this dude barely fit in his Corba. Looked like he was driving a clown car his head shoulders were well above his windscreen. As he approaches the high 5 hand comes up and it is high 5's all around. "Dudes when that first bike passed me with the wheel above my door he scared the **** out of me. Bikes sounded fantastic at WOT going by. I never hear **** besides my car, lol. And you boys vanished just as fast, dam." We hung out and bonded awhile. Must have been a different club and door. Where are those guys?

Dang, how did I miss this thread? I could have easily thrown enough gas on it to get Jamo to padlock it but now it's past the moment.

Mature adults don't need insults to communicate.

How about we all agree to act like mature adults?

I've met and worked with a number of 'genuine' people over the years. The problem was that some of them were genuine a**holes, idi0ts - sometimes both.

Default Just Chill.

You're not the first, nor will you be the last to come "Great gun's a-blazing" on how great you are. We call it "Us revolving around you", that never works well with us, why don't you just mellow, get to know us, and then you can tell us all your great war stories. Funny you mention Ron Fellows and Butch Litzinger, when you buy a new C-8 Ron Fellows special ed. you get a free Hi-Pro driving lessons, well, 2-of our members, went to their school, Ah be Dammed, Ron Fellows said the same thing to one of them Huuummm.... Here's a muti-year, million+ dollar contact, just sign right here. But you know "housewives" with Kids lunches to make, and the whole house to clean, just didn't have the time to do it Think maybe they say that to EVERYBODY This happens to be my favorite racing photo, shows how's anybody can make a mistake, mine ended up with bend sheet metal, you racing on the street could end up costing lives, do you not care about that, or are you willing to take that chance for them ?? Cheers Tom.

Nothing worse then someone telling you what you must do. I am sure triple vaxed and wearing a mask while driving alone. No one was bragging, just trying to educate Alfa that he doesn't know jack ****. And being a newbie doesn't mean I have to take any from **** from him either. I have been biting my tongue trying to be nice.

I have a stack of "Loud pipes saves lives" stickers, if you qualify.

Its not a matter of telling someone what to do, its more of calling out a schmuck with more money than common sense. Or a lack of situational awareness for the outright a**hole he is being by putting everyone elses life around him in jeopardy.

Its not him, or even me.instead its the one you see in the mirror every morning.

Does my post sound like an attack, its not, just calling it like I see it from your posts here. Newbie, or troll, or something unimaginable in todays day and age.

Talk about a bunch of drama queens watching to many youtube videos. Mustang do the letters FO meaning anything to you. None of you where there and I hear racing and endangering lives. Drama queens. The road was 6 lanes wide and there were no other cars and I was 3 lanes away from any people. The car never got an inch sideways. If that is a big problem for you, you need to get a life and give your wife her panties back.

You broke tires loose. Everyone else here would have applied corrective action. Instead you DELIBERATELY go into a sustained skid.

You were lucky this time.


You've had this car for what? 6 weeks? Those of us that have driven these cars know that this type of driving will more often than not result in bad things happening. Yet instead of acknowledging a momentary lapse of judgement your actions say you will do it again and again and again. It's not what you did this time but that you think you're immune to "more often than not". You've got a lot of people with decades of Cobra driving time under their belts telling you that this is not a good idea, yet you somehow won't acknowledge that advice.

You don't know the Cobra yet. I don't care if you're a Formula 1 driver. You're an inexperienced Cobra driver. Don't try to justify your actions.

You put an untold number of others at risk. The collective experience tells everyone but you that. There can be no justification for that.

I stand by my earlier conclusions. You've done nothing to change my mind any only done more to reinforce it.

I agree Alfa02. Done here.
