That's like a medium-sized country's GDP going around the track.

Whatever you want to call it, I'd sure like to have been there.

This is just plain wrong. I absolutely want to live in a world where cars like this exist. Given that they do exist, it makes me happier to see them in their rightful home on a track, instead of being fetishistically polished in a locked, climate controlled garage. Hate that guy instead.

I hope I'm not the only person that notices something extremely funny in the second sentence.

Was just sitting in the parking lot. It's the same one from the supercar experience Pacific Rim Job posted. We were at Homestead raceway in Miami at this point and a SV is a nice car but you really want something nice for the track. That's when he showed us his new slab.

That's some guy's forum handle, I infer. The decency standards over at somethingawful are, ah, different than ours to say the least.

The video of the F1 car going by the stands and hearing it drop 4 gears (I think, might've been five, 196 mph to 50 mph according to the author of that post) in less than 2 seconds is my obsession with the automobile distilled down into five seconds of video.

I am really unsure how one can legally make enough money to casually pilot and maintain a recently retired F1 car.

Maybe thinking in the constraints of legality is my shortcoming.

legality ≠ morality ≠ normalcy

For the most part, people with that much money shake their heads and wonder how we can live like we do. Might was well be different species. Kinda cool, though, that for all our differences, we can often sit over a beer and dork out about cars.

To most non racing people what we do is stupid, I mean how can we spend $1000 on tires that last 40 runs.

Whether you are racing a $100,000 Porsche or a $2010 beater doesn't matter, we all put on our pants the same way and at the end of the day its the passion for motor racing that unites us.

So you do a headstand and have your pants lowered down from the ceiling too?

Speaking of pants...

So the new PhD dude is from Turkey... he tells me that he spent all day in his "panties". I was like WTF dude, then I realized he meant sweat pants.

Amusing guy really, he asks for beer that the barkeep has never of and I have to remind him that this is 'merica we drink E36 M3ty beer.

Eh, I'd rather see those guys taking them on track instead of the street..
