Rob

I was going to tear into your juvenile attitude, but I've already hurt enough peoples' "tender" feelings on this board.

I'll wait until Pat sees your smart-ass response.

If I were you I'd run for cover- this is gonna get ugly.....

All I can say is this: you're sure living up to your reputation.

That's about all I have to say to you. See you at the track.

Why do you continue to kiss Pat's ass? That is so annoying! You've been doing that for ages.... give it up!

P.S. learn to admit you're wrong sometimes and try not to always have the last word... one day you'll meet someone that'll rearrange your face.

to cool this thread off, I got a couple of question.
1. How can go to the track?
2. How much is it?
3. How long I will spend driving?
4. Can my bro drive my car too?
5. How bad is it to a car?
6. What are my chances to f*ck my car over?
7. I am a pussy, what if I'll be driving too slow for a track?

hmmm the whole thread started to be off-topic on the second page.
And I think my questions are exactly ON topic.

I wouldn't talk there Mr. I'm too chicken to reveal who I am! Ha! Ha! Ha! Don't get me wrong here. I would never "do" anything stupid because I argued with some guy on the internet. You actually made me laugh with some of those "silly" comments! Ha! Ha! Ha!

Geez Randy, everybody spends most of their time kissing your ass, it's about time someone started kissing mine for a bit!!


Anyhow, I've been away from the office all afternoon, but it certainly sounds like I've missed some interesting material...woohoo!!


Anyhow, on the in-car video; John's generally not a fan of it; he'll allow certain people to do it, based simply on his opinion of their maturity. Guys tend to get video cameras in their car, and then attempt to pull off one hot lap after another...

Unless you're getting video of both in-car and shots of your hands / feet, it's not a lot of good as a teaching aid. The in-car shots out the windshield don't show a lot (braking, etc). The in-car video is almost a better aid for the driver you're following....

Other than the apparently juicy stuff which must have been deleted, I can't find anything else to say about this....damn, I really must have missed something.

The import vs domestic thing is a little dull however; a lot of guys don't like to hear that their $70,000 M3 gets lapped easily by a $20,000 Mustang... It is very much a battle-axe vs scalpel type approach, and it simply depends on the track(s) involved. The driver is a big part of it as well; most of the guys who can afford E46 M3s really don't know how to drive them well, or are afraid to push them hard. This pretty much holds true for all the E46 M3s at the track this past weekend.

The problem with a number of drivers (BMW, Ferrari, Porsche) is the notion that because they drive a fast car, they're automatically a fast driver. On the track, a funny thing occurs (Randy has probably seen this before). When you come barreling up behind someone, the driver often *decides* if he thinks you're worthy of passing him. I get this all the time from a couple of guys in the A group with E46 M3s, and some of the guys with M5s.

I can imagine the Mustang guys (particularly at a BMW event) get this treatment as well; for some reason, the right signal light just doesn't seem to work....

It's much more fun being the fastest car on the track (especially with nearly the least HP). Eventually, everyone has to give you the passing signal....


Pat

You sneak!!
Rob,

Are you on GLUE?... what the hell are you talking about? I always log on as myself and never have a reason to hide. Dude, you should seriously shut up while you're still (marginally) ahead.*drunk*





Pat,

I never kiss anyone's ass. That's a fact. Sorry to burst your bubble.

Read again. I said everybody here ends up kissing YOUR ass....not the other way around.

I'm just saying it's about time someone started kissing my ass instead of yours


On a side note, this thread has been good for Rob in one sense. Instead of us hassling him further about his near *offs* at Mosport, it's turned into a domestic vs import, who can kiss the most ass kinda thread....

Rob must be happy about that....otherwise we'd be focussing on his driving abilities....(or lack thereof).


Pat

Sorry Pat, you're absolutely right... I misread that sentence, but either way I didn't offend anyone... just stated a point. We're all good!
