Default Re: No Bikes in Here

I used to check the MO web site daily. I found out that if I want to read about the race results from over the weekend or anything pertinent about motorcycles I go to another site. I know its only 12 bucks but I can get a Motorcyclist Subscription for about that much and they have more monthly content. The race information is very lagged in a publication but at least it exists.

However, I must say that when MO staff (not the dolts that decide the so called "news" articles) does post a new story it is generally a very, very good article with excellent attached media.

Hey, DonM past, this is DonM future. Why are they claiming the car is totaled? Don't they put the engine in the back seat to begin with?

Listen to the engine sounds: he was on the gas and the brakes at the same time. That will lighten the front end real good.

If you look at the vid carefully the front wheel does not lock. Enzo also has ABS. End of story, the car is expensive POS. Good job I saw this as I was just about to buy one of them. Only couldn't decide on the aftermarket exhaust pipe chrome tip.

you can make ANY car understeer,, even a pickup truck with a very light rear end can understeer. a well balanced car will do it that much easier. Also, this car would be more likely to understeer because the motor is in the back though it may be a 50/50 weight ratio. he should just let off the accerator and it would have let more weight transfer to the front tires .. blah blah blah.. looks like he saw the wall after traction broke and panicked,, or he thought he would punch it and spin the rear end out.. haha silly actors, think they are in the movies. anyway that is why not everybody can drive well. OH and nobody said it was the world's best.

You're "...hat is off to MISTER Griffin.."? Excuse me? You actually respect this idiot?



If I came into a turn that fast and locked up my brakes in the process, I'd rip up my driver's license. This clown must've got his license from a Crackerjack box!

Oh Lord, I would pay money to set MISTER (as one poster referrers to him) Griffin up on an

R-1 over at Willow, and then say to him.....



"So just crank it on, and when you come to that first turn, just touch your knee down and she'll go right around, just like you see those other guys doing."



Oh, the joy...!
