      It's a good thing. Those guys were probably going 140 mph faster than the other cars toward the end of that video. Real easy to squash someone.

        Got to drive a friend’s Tesla yesterday. Very cool. 100% changed my mind regarding auto-driving technology/ability.

          Just curious if there are any major noticeable driving characteristics that stood out? I understand that the electric motors apply instant torque for acceleration if needed?

          Well, I dont really have any comparison. 0 to 60 in under 3 seconds is shockingly impressive and puts a smile on your face, especially doing it with absolute ease and in pure silence. The entire “dashboard” is that computer display in the pic. It’s crazy how much you can control with just the app from your phone. I’ve always thought driverless cars would never happen. It did it, in moderate traffic, on a typical road. The one problem it cant figure out is a red light, unless there was a car already stopped at it.

              Amazing? No it is idiotic for men with tiny penises to be out there driving 200 mph in the same roads as families.

              Look I've had high speed driving courses. I've hit the apexes within two inches, studies all the true apexes, deep/lates, earlies, at speeds that aren't really safe.

              That is nothing sort of gross recklessness.

              If those fvkkers want to kill themselves then go rent a track. They obviously have the money to do it.

                  You’re my dad on the cars, I drove all your trucks except Montero in Afghanistan.

                  I have a Ukrainian friend who wanted to give me a Porsche 912

                    :lol: No. He was actually living in Vero at the time (had a business at the airport in Sebastian) and had bought it in mint condition from a really, really, old couple. He had a very specific reason for wanting me to have it and I had a very specific reason for not being able to take it.... but can you imagine no AC here in Florida?

                          A little more contemporary, but have you seen the Ford vans or Mitsu Fuso crew cab converted to 4x4 rv/camper?

                              Truck would have to be this.....
