Granted it was to some degree. However, please dont equate "driving, driving in the twisties," with racing. They arent even in the same ballpark... I would be happy to have you along for a session at one of the local tracks for a comparison. Just bring a spare pair of underwear...
Esteban , that video had me in stitches...

Sorry for the OT.

It wasn't fair how he jumped down your throat, however...

If you think that's true, you're living life the wrong way. One of the best things about "driving the twisties" is matching revs and rowing gears.




30 - MT. Never owned an auto.
