Re: Cornering apparently isn't THAT good...

so he was going fast enough through a neighborhood to rip off both back wheels like that. what an idiot, ticking a little above speed limit on the highway is one thing but in a neighborhood is asinine, you never know when an unknowing little kid could jump out in front of you. glad they charged him

Re: Cornering apparently isn't THAT good...

Agreed...at age 40 he should have known better.

There was a kid in my neighborhood who smacked his Challenger into a curb while negotiating a very sharp curve and did tons of damage. He is lucky he didn't hit one of the numerous residents or their children who are usually out riding bikes, walking, etc. We always had issues with him speeding on our street, so this took care of him for the time being. Hopefully his parents fix it, sell it and put him in something slower...

they should really throw the book at people that do things like that in neighborhoods, you have to be able to think for little kids that don't know enough on streets like that. be nice if the insurance company decided not to pay for a new toy for that 40 year old but probably not likely.

It was tongue in cheek given the sub-title of the article...

He wanted to show how well it handled corners at high speed and ended up upside down.

Re: Cornering apparently isn't THAT good...

I believe Mr. Pederson will also be granted with a totaled vehicle......in which his insurance company may not cover due to the charges.

One hopes the local authorities handed him a pretty good series of tickets for reckless driving, reckless endangerment, and being a general dumb*ss.

Re: Cornering apparently isn't THAT good...

Agree with the rest, guy was a fool... I am not afraid to push the limits (within reason) on the highway and even on the way home on major roads (mainly because it seems no one wants to go to work or go home) as they all go under the speed limit. But once I turn into the sub - it is 15MPH.

I suspect the moron had it in track mode and had no clue what he was in for...

Re: Cornering apparently isn't THAT good...

Im glad he wrecked it in the way he did, it could have been a lot worse. He could have been doing 160 on the freeway and smacked into someone causing multiple fatalities. The most important thing is no one was seriously injured. Cars can be fixed or replaced, people can't.
