Dropping the clutch is the only time it happens, its a control arm I think. Anyway, you don't need to pull away as hard as possible to go fast as you know, I was accelerating harder than normal, but not full throttle. As for high speed "manoevures," there were not really any. This isn't a movie, I wasn't skidding in between people, or coming 2 inches from their bumper or side, no one honked at me, the shoulder is a big wide lane. So, it was not as dramatic as you think.

As for you saying silverM5 is not an accomplished driver because he supposedly driving dangerously, that's ridiculous. You think that race car drivers drive like angels on the road, wrong. I see everyday in Autoweek and on speedvision quick bits about drivers getting high speed tickets. I'd rather be around a good driver doing 90 than a soccer mom doing 55 with her cell phone on and applying her makeup.

The bad drivers around here are all the assholes with no manners that drive 50 in the left lane. If everyone knew their place, we could have the left lane moving at 80 consistently, the middle lane at 70 and the right lane at 55-60.

Ok Nick,
So you are pulling high speed manoeuvres and you tell us you are NOT pulling away fast and stopping quickly because you have a clunk coming from underneath your car of which you have no idea from whence it is coming???

Jeezus kid, use your noodle...something could be TERRIBLY wrong and you are pulling these antics...
Thank the driving Gods and get your car checked and then take some driving schools....


And as far as Mr ChicagoSilverM5 goes, you think we are too hard on the kid....you are just as reckless as he was....

So..let me get this straight....you have a car in front of you swaying around without his foot on the brake, it is dark, in traffic, he illegally uses the shoulder and you FOLLOW him??

Get real...he could have been drunk or stoned and, in a fit of bravado and because your wife gives you permission (and to show your wife what a hot shoe you are), you get up his tail and flash him because you want him to move over so you can "fly past him"....Sorry, get a life...referring to your description of the event, you are definitely NOT an accomplished driver (well, maybe in your own mind!).

Take a few driving schools will you and Oh Yes...I live in the Western Suburbs of Chicago and do know what its like driving around here! Especially watching the lack of decent driving standards shown by a lot of U.S. drivers!
