I'm sure in capable hands they would just disappear, but when they're not...it's tricky to be around them.
Yep a novice in the Radical mixed with fast street cars is just bad news in traffic.We had a v8 Radical out with us last year and it was almost embarrassing to see how much quicker we were on a tight track in the M3's.But on the big track he eventually got down to times 6 seconds quicker than my fastest laps.
