Agreed. No trash-talking is needed here. If you guys want to put your numbers where your mouth is, show some results comparing you to established National level drivers and we'll have something to go on. If not, let it go.

Phil,
What they were saying is that its cooler to see a normal transportation vehicle be fast then a vehicle that was purpose built with auto-cross in mind. I mean, you yourself said it had to be trailered in a closed trailer, so its not streetable. I also like the cars that are able to drive to the track, put down low quarter miles then drive home. Yes that car has all out speed, but thats not all there is to me.

I get that, that's the way I feel about drag cars.
But if you haven't seen this thing go around an autox course, you really can't comment. It's nothing like a shifter kart. The shifter karts are sorta boring, the shark is nothing close to that. And the drivers' skills in the shark are awesome. No matter what ANY of us on here would like to pretend, the bowlands can out drive you. The comment saying they could outdrive you in your car and you in the shark MAY be a stretch, but simply put it's fun to watch them drive.

You do realize there are Former Track Instructors and former autoX champions and open track champions on this website right Kremit.

But ohh i forgot you have a SVT now with R compound tires soo you must be a super driver!

I'd put money on I can name 5 people in SEMI that can outdrive you any day of the week.

I bet that my dad could beat up your dad.

I put up numbers about how I did raw and PAX against a national champion. Where are your numbers?

WTF is your problem?

Todras asked me and I replied that how good or bad of a driver doesn't have anything to do with anything.

When did this become a you vs. me thing?

I said Bowland will outdrive all of us on here. That includes me.


Understand?

By the way, I HOPE most of ya'll can out drive me. I ain't but 20 and really ain't got much driving in yet. With that said, I probably drive a lot better than you assume.
