    Meh, shit happens. If I get the C8 this year (which is a slight possibility), it's going to be very hard to not take it out to play.

    I do not think it was the speed of a 100 that car will do 0-100 in no time. It was that they were drinking.
    If they do not get fired they will be on thin ice with the boss
    Thin Ice Below. Fastforward to 1:40 wow this guy is nuts

    I’m with you man. I find it hard to keep my f150 on the leash from time to time. A Vette owner who doesn’t rip on it on the street once in a long while should be considered for sainthood. I mean that level of discipline is second to self-flagellation or maybe celibacy.

    Agreed, the drinking was pure Stoopid...the zipping around in a supercar is what has to be expected. Fast cars are maintained and serviced by people that have that need for speed and horsepower.
    I'd be straight up lying if I said that I've never road tested a brand new supercar beyond speeds of 120.
    I'm a baad mann...

    Glad they got stopped by the police and not by a telephone pole. Iím not looking forward to cutting people out of those C8s. F150s, jeeps, and Mercedes / Chrysler era platforms (mostly C-classes and 300s) are bad enough. Lapses in judgment which usually result from the departed getting confused between their vehicle and something which can actually handle, typically end up with them executing a high-speed parking maneuver into a significantly more massive and less mobile object. Luckily mustangs can sorta handle, otherwise I think most of their local drivers woulda committed vehicular suicide by now. Lost count how many of them have tried to use my truck (or my marked van) to kill themselves.

    Some years ago I knew a guy who lost his life on the drag strip. He was running in a class that didn’t require a driveshaft safety loop and his mustang pole vaulted off the driveshaft and somersaulted down the track. There is no doubt speed combined with error or failure is a deadly combination.

    I wasn’t there for it but in the circle I ran in at the time many of those guys were, and some of them stopped drag racing.

    As a side note my previous comments were not to endorse street racing, just that on occasion the temptation to devil the guy next to at a red light may exceed my ability to resist.

    I'd love to check it out if you do (look at it not drive it). I'll even buy lunch.

    That could definitely be arranged.

    As things stand, it's looking like this will be more of a possibility in 2021. Financial goals + the car is basically sold out, everywhere.
