Reminds me of the post with the young kid in the e46 M3 driving through some canyons, where his front wheels left the ground, he couldn't steer, and went of the road into a boulder.

All that suspension technology, and super high performance rubber are useless if the car isn't actually on the road !!!

The GTR clip also validates my feeling that today's top performance cars are simply becoming too fast for public roadways. They land in the hands of people who don't have the experience or judgement to handle that kind of power. Even people who can handle the power are still faced with the the multitude of obstacles and hazards that abound on public roadways.

I am all for spirited driving fun when conditions allow, but what this guy was trying to pull was simply ridiculous. Hope he learned his lesson, and won't endanger the life of anyone else in the future.
