Re: 5 min of crazy vortech jeep srt8 driving.

Good video I just don't like the fact that he got so close to that guy on the motorcycle. That's not cool, don't put someone in danger like that.

X2!

I accidently cut someone off about three weeks ago on an on ramp - it was three lanes down to one around a corner and I did not know the area then was like oh shit my lane ends so I punched it just to get ahead, the other driver did not have to touch his breaks and I would not say I was even that close to him.

WELL! whoever it was thought it was the end of the world and rode my ass, honking, flipping me off, I had to put my window up - it was crazy.

Got to a point were I had to just get the **** away and took off down the highway.

I actually felt bad about it since he thought I did it on purpose, but I really didn't mean to. Watch I'm going to run into this guy at a gas station and hes going to kick my ass!

I already forget what his car was but I'd imagine he has the Borla tips burned into his memory...

Re: 5 min of crazy vortech jeep srt8 driving.

Vinny, I'd say it's not a lack of balls,it's an excess of common sense. I've done my fair share of dumb and illegal shit,but i always make sure i'm not endangering anyone else but myself. I'm not impressed by that vid.

Re: 5 min of crazy vortech jeep srt8 driving.

I think that was somewhere in Germany, I think they were speaking german and the road signs. Plus all the insane cars on the road, a few vettes, more than one farrari. That road was too crowded for car racing around though. I like watching "ghost rider" clips on youtube, the guy on a race bike f-ing with the cops. He is nuts.

I agree. The guys involved are idiots. Rich idiots but idiots just the same. You want to race? Take it to a track. You want to drive on public roads with your fellow citizens? Show a little respect for the safety of those around you.

Re: 5 min of crazy vortech jeep srt8 driving.

This video is from Sao Paulo Brazil. Im very familiar with this highway, it is a total race track. Everyone in Brazil knows that. The highway (Imigrantes) goes from the metropolitan area to the shore. I drove it many times myself... Cool video..

Re: 5 min of crazy vortech jeep srt8 driving.

With watching all the srt8 videos on youtube I realize they are fast from the line and on straight aways, but I see the down side is its height and inability to take corners as fast as sports/exotic cars. I once saw a video clip of this professional test driver taking a Lambo for a ride on twisty roads and it was insane what the guy could do, the whole time he was talking thru the video all calm saying how he is applying the brake at point X then giving it gas at point Y during the turn. He made it look so dam easy. Meanwhile the speedo was over 100mph the whole time.

Re: 5 min of crazy vortech jeep srt8 driving.

I LUV bikes, and this guy, Ghost Rider is nuts. At 4:30 watch his hang time on a wheelie with cops behind him. funny.



This one the guy turns around while on his bike and flips the cops off.



Sorry for the posts, but i find them cool.

Yeah I don't understand why some guys do this around other road users. Either take it to the track, or at least do it a midnight when there's no innocent and unwary road users around. Not cool.

Re: 5 min of crazy vortech jeep srt8 driving.

Its the adreneline, driving down the highway then a car pulls up wanting to race, its hard to resist. When I had a race bike so many times I pulled off the highway shaking wondering how im still alive after doing some of the dumb shit I did.
