Default ahhh, I didn't think I would cause so much tension

I had a perfect driving record before this, and I rarely(I mean rarely! do spirited driving), especially with a passenger(240sx driver). I definitely learned my lesson and 95% of the time I'm driving the speed limit. Highways are another matter.
My buddy and I usually go to deserted parking lots... preferably without light poles, or go to backroads if we ever want to practice.
I was pretty confident until now, so I've decided to never drive crazy on public roads again!

Thanks for all the comments... it shows me that you all care....awwww
240_to_Miata_driver.... now I know what happened to your 240. My friend is thinking about going the Ka-T route versus the overdone sr20 swap. Ka's are essentially truck motors with very good torque and response. Now turbo that, and it'll be a pretty killer car. It handles pretty damn good as well(Not as good as a miata! [stock suspension anyway])

Drag racing on the street is just as dangerous. And i dont understand the statement that cars are meant to go strait? You dont have a steering wheel.....
we are all or most of us guilty of testing our car on the street. No matter ******** or drag its dangerous. It just a blessing that nothing happened and hoped that the man learn from it. Im sorry but i had to post on this one.. but pats you cant say you drag racing on the highway is any safer than ********. And unless you had the highway closed down for you that night you race all those cars you said you did, than you are putting peoples lives in danger also.
So i think the people bashing on the guy should think about what there doing before typing..... Im no saint my self i use to street race heavy, had a friend killed in a street race. That really hit me hard, so i try my best not to speed or test my car around other cars. Thats life you learn and move on.. I hope that this guy saw that he could have killed him self, his friend , and the motorist that was in the picture. And its not worth it, if you want to put your self at risk go somewhere secluded if you dont have a sanctioned event to go to.(with out your friend in the car) bash up you car all you want.
Anyways im out, i said what was on my mind, feel free talk smack about me if you want

Right - street racing never hurt anyone.

The meaning was apparently lost on you, and maybe on Pat too (plus you've taken my statement out of context). Of course cars aren't meant to only go straight, I worded that wrong and I apologize. Car's are designed to go straight, and to turn. They are meant to be controllable during both of these events. They are not designed to be controllable while sideways, which is part of the appeal of buttsex - it's hard to do, and to do well takes a lot of practice and even the pros have accidents almost constantly. Definitely something to be kept off of the streets.

Hope that clarifies the meaning of my previous post.

Edit - and, potentially, gives someone a new sig quote.

I was going to ask a question about that too, how they hell can he give you a ticket for reckless driving when he shows up after the event and only sees the crashed car? Was he psychic? Did you tell him you were ********?

A cop showed up when I drove my car off of a cliff all he did was call an overpriced towtruck.

Default The Cop

Well, little did I know, I was lucky enough that a cop wasn't far away, he was just cruising, and stopped by to see why there was a bright red Miata smashed into a tree with 2 dazed people just standing next to it.
The officer asked what had happened.
I said I had lost control of the vehicle and he assumed I was "without due caution"... which means wreckless driving.

These threads always turn out fun.

Over my 10 years of driving experience I have learned all too well to keep my self in check. Sure now and then I rip on it and speed, but I don't get up to 120 and just hold it there like I used to when I first got my license. I too have done many a stupid **** with my cars (driving while pissing out the door), but I feel fortunate that I learned my lesson and now watch the other guys get pulled over or crash.

If you wanna practice ******** take it to a parking lot. I used to go out on summer nights, no passenger, no alcohol, no pot, and just start ******* around. Sometimes I would use cones, boxes, light posts, etc to give me some sort of line. Out of the hundreds of times I went out to multiple parking lots to play, only once did the cops bust my nuts.

He still lives home with mom. Glad your ok, I used to street race all the time. I thank god I didn't kill myself or other people. I'm sure my mother and father praying kept me alive.

BUT GIVE THE GUY A BREAK! He fixed his car. He will be smarter next time.
You have to age, and gain experiance for some things to kick in. There is no way any of us would ride with ourselves at 16 on a Sat night.

If you don't experiance something in your younger age, your a SWEET PUSS!

Yea, street racing isnt smart. But we have all done it. Atleast he wasn't drinking That is what I hate. I never drink and drive.

Really? That's your given name? I've never heard that used as a name before. How did that come about? Just curious.

I was born in an Army base in Korea. When my mom had me, my dad forgot to tell her my name was suppose to be Thomas. When the doctor asked her what my name was, My korean mom said, "Be Young". It's korean. No special significance, except I'm named after someone historical.
