    Looks a little too residential to me for wringing that car out like that. Lot's of opportunities for someone to pull out of a driveway in front of you. But, he is right about the brakes. They are huge and it took me about a week of driving to get used to them and avoid slamming myself against the seat belt every time I touched them.

    Now own just a lowly Viper
    Personally I think he is a good example of why you see so many Mustang crashes on the web.

    And his comment about being good driver is funny. Who the hell goes through corners getting on and off the throttle 3 or 4 times.

    Overall I give him a Jerk Rating of 9.4 out of a possible of 10.

    You noticed that too. I thought he was not a very good driver at all. And he was across or on the yellow line way to much for that kind of public road. A real idiot I thought.

    Yeah - he was anything but smooth - more herky, jerky than anything. Seemed to be trying to make some statement about the brakes holding up - OK, but a good driver doesn't drive on the brakes. They drive on the throttle.
