The duelling Ferraris of Northbourne

Not something you see every day.

This Ferrari and a same model black one had a short race against each other on Northbourne last night.

The place echoed with the sound of them both howling away from the lights side by side and up one block. The black one peeled off before being stopped.

Yup, we have been brainwashed into thinking that if you speed the world will implode when in reality a 40km/h accident will just as likely kill you as a 140km/h accident.

And pulling ‘facts’ from your bum doesn’t count.

True! I was in a 100 kmh + head on crash whilst driving a GT falcon (74 Model) when i hit a Suzuki Sierra who failed to give way to me….though I was obviously speeding.

I and my passenger walked away, the other bloke however took a flying lesson through his windscreen yet was able to walk away after removing the glass from his attire.

74 model falcons are not modern cars, no air bags, no ABS, just 2 tonnes of steel heading down the rubber road to freeeeedom! I sure did strike the iron roadworthy on that little suzi but no serious injuries and no-one died!, He would have been going 60 kmh, I was going at least 100 kmh, so you do the maths and figure out how in gods name we all walked away?

Once again Captain RAAF you openly admit you are an idiot and shouldn’t be behind the wheel of anything faster than a chocolate wheel. I won’t even ask how on earth you had a head on collision with a car coming at you not giving way at 60km/h. A 1974 falcon doesn’t weigh 2tonnes, more like 1390kg – not much more than a modern Corolla. Old shitboxes like 1974 Falcons are likely to fare really badly in accidents with newer cars of similar mass. How badly, well take a look at this clip of an old Cadillac and a relatively new one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O-WYKYrq5FI

I get the feeling CaptainRAAF that your driving is so crap that these repeat drink drivers referred to in RiotACT are a safer bet than you.

Er, I could. Don’t most discussions here end up this way?

And before you get uppity about the legalaties of radar locks, I have a permit for it.

Ummmm, what is a radar lock and how does one get a permit for it?

Join Cams. We use it for precise speed readings when racing and for a sort of do it yourself car speed ajustor for following pace cars. Hence radar lock. You ‘lock’ on to the car in front and let it do the driving via the cruise control. Also handy for getting a read out of the speed of cars you are overtaking and that are overtaking you. Very useful on a race track. Which is the only place I ever exceed the otherwise signed speed limits found on public roads.

Lol you are kidding right? … what a waste of time

I hold a National level CAMS licence, and this is the first time I’ve ever seen such wankery

Obviously you haven’t been reading in a while. This type of wankery occurs regularly (hence the Mully cup/Flame of the week etc).

Video or it didn’t happen. Then let the peanut gallery decide whether they were driving dangerously or you are just a tosser with calibrated eyeballs.
