TTRS is pretty legit. even if it has a 5 cylinder from the passat.

The S5 isn't a very agressive sports car, but it looks awesome, audi interior, blah blah. Not dual clutch, but I wouldn't care.

In a way yes. Under full braking the wing adjusts to maximum downforce.

I think an air brake would /wtf pwn this thing. But I don't really know. Brakes > aero?

Depends on the driving. Brakes and aero are both important but brakes are more important in endurance racing because of the length of time they have to last.

I'm gonna buy this Jay just to be like you.

I just remember hearing about the bugatti's air brake. Without it, the car wouldn't be what it was. (track times) Something like that? You still need long hair!

Huh???? It's an active wing it's supposed to move. If you've ever seen that camera angle before on a racecar you can see how much wings move, they aren't completely rigid.

I would have never stopped on a 50cc scooter... I'd been like ya right. Did you get a lawyer? Or at least file your own appearance? I was doing 96 in a 60. State boy started chasing me, so I just kept it steady at 96. Waiting for him to catch up. He finally catches up, screaming since the minute he opened his door. I was about to call this in, I thought you were running. Why didn't you slow down? I told him no point in slowing down, you can't write me two tickets for the same offense. He adds, NO but i can take you to jail! (I giggled about that) He went back and wrote me a ticket. I paid 450 done deal. (no points) What have you done to deserve such harsh punishment?

More less the city of Springfield is all butt hurt because they spent a few million dollars a couple years ago on red light cameras... Someone took the city to Missouri Supreme Court and won. So the city was ordered to remove all camera... So if you get pulled over in the city of Springfield for red-light stop sign any of that crap... Lawyers are useless. The judge's are even over ruled by the city council...

So all and all... It's all bullshit!!!
