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.

It doesn't matter what the other driver did, but the guy filming should have stopped. People make mistakes, and this could have been a tragic accident but, you must be a low-life to not even check if that person might have needed help. If he was okay, you can yell at him. If he was in need of medical attention you could have helped him, either way it's a win win

In one of the 3 or 4 other threads on this forum where this video was posted, the person filming posted that they did stop to check on him after the video. The driver was fine but the car had $15K in damage.

As right as you are, if I were in the camera car I'd be completely pissed that someone would be that wreckless on a drive right next to me. My first thought would probably be the same as the driver's until I had time to process and come to my senses.

I completely understand, that would be reaction too. But I would still go and check on the person which I think in fact the other driver did do.
