Closer... No. Not my definition of safe...

THAT WAS ONE OF THE TOP FIVE MOST AWESOME CAR EXPERIENCES I HAVE EVER HAD!

You must be. :shock: Random, man.
I wish I was intoxicated, or high. In fact, I would love to be crossfaded right now, because I'm having issues keeping my mind straying back to something over and over and over again...

But, c'est la vie.

you rode shotgun driving some circles around a culdesac is your definition of amazing driving moments, WTF is this shit. find a tree or a concrete wall to drive into so you ricers quit trying to drift a FWD on dry roads.

find a nice driving road, theres plenty around mansfield and rice out on those. if you can not die, then you had a good driving experience. driving around in circles trying to get a inherently understeering wrong wheel drive to step the ass out is retarded

That's just really f**k nice, Roman...

Maturity just abounds in you, y'know?

Furthermore, I've riced out on nice driving roads around Mansfield... Trust me. I've done 95 mph down a curvy, hilly back road at 3:00 A.M. in a Nissan with extremely shitty rear suspension and not a lot holding it together.

Furthermore, I obviously didn't die, since I'm not a ghost and I'm sitting here typing this.

That was a fun car to fly down the road in... minus the fartcan my coworker had installed on it... I hated THAT part of it...
It gave Tony a headache. Anti-lulz... Anti-lulz = evil... Thusly, fartcan is evil.

if you posted that on any real car forum your get a similar response. ive grown out of my ricer stage, being stupid in the car doesnt appeal to me anymore. driving around in circles trying to get a FWD to drift is just that. going 90 in a car with destroyed suspension isnt much smarter either

I did, I survived, it wasn't destroyed, just very shitty.

What the hell is wrong with doing donuts? It's f**k fun.
Being shoved into the door by g-forces and spinning in a tight circle at well over 30 mph is fun in my book.
Sure, maybe it is not rocket-scientist brilliant, but it's fun.

FWD drifting on dry asphalt is guite possible... but that what you did was more like burnout for my opinnion...

But well I consider drifting as something you do on over 40mph speeds, on curvy road or on track.
like this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JQMQkMvRG3I

burnouts powerslides ETC... are complitely different story
