    that said, i think there's a 6:30-6:35 in this car.

    I counted at least 20 mistakes. It's real hard to be perfect for so many hard miles, but that's on the driver, not on the car.

    havent you ever watched Top Gear

    they have these big floating things called boats that they use for ferrying people across the channel... in fact i think they might even be called "ferrys"
    they even have trains that go through tunnels under the channel that can also transport cars

    it is not custom made
    it is not a 1 off
    it is "produced" and sold to the public
    it is street legal

    Jeffie: Honestly, I challenge you to a hot lap in my civic on the north loop. If you're so fucking sure you can beat me, then fly your ass out to frankfurt, and I'll meet you there. If not, stfu.

    It is really a "production" car, but only in the absolute literal definition. Its a street legal (somehow) full blooded race car.

    Still impressive. He didn't seem to be pushing it to its limits either, there were several sections where he seemed to be taking it really easy.. Then again, he over did several corners as well, so who knows. Until I can bring that car around that track faster than he can, I can't talk shit.

    exactly my point. it was FAR from a clean run. There's at least 10+ seconds in the car, but perhaps not with this driver.
    Although, i'm sure he would kick my ass around it.....
