Lol. I think they call it a "smart car" because golf cart and roller skate were already taken. If you get into an accident with one of those things, you'll wish you were smart(er). I've seen scooters pass those thing -going up hill!

Talk about ANYTHING WK thread.

So I burnt the rubber on the tires of my rental mustang... It takes corners pretty well, but the rear end loves to stick out. ImageUploadedByJeepGarage1421193147.231104.jpg

that's common in the mustangs. they never really could get the rear to stay planted or have a proper set of brakes that don't fade
