You have to wonder how not only one person thought that would be a good idea, but an entire crowd of people thought so. **** like this is the reason car enthusiasts everywhere get looked down upon.

At least a FWD civic driver would have to do something super fucked up to go careening sideways across a interstate.

actually... with some of the stupid *** modifications they tend to do I've seen them go sideways on the interstate multiple times before. Watched one fucktard in an integra get drilled by a 1-ton truck a few month back @ 80 mph.

My buddy has a cammed, supercharged, full exhaust - GTO putting down about 700hp, with a megasquirt.

So basically, nobody learned from the Vette that went spinning in the middle of traffic in the beginning. It looked so cool that they decided to do it again. Properly this time. But first, some zero visibility on the road with a nice burn out.

WTF are they smoking at their meets?

Why would someone put a megasquirt on a LSX based car when the GM ECU/PCM is fully flashable for every parameter down to tire diameter calibration?

Didnt want to run MAF based? Some people prefer it, but i'm sure it could make things complex in a 700hp setup.

Exactly, I love the GM pcm. I can tune all my cars with HP Tuners.

After watching the video, my reaction is a little different. I can't wait to put an LS2 into my miata.

I finally got a chance to view the video because the site was blocked by my works firewall...not that I visit this site during work hours...

Those drivers are The Modern Supergay.

The tire smoker apparently has never seen multiple car pile ups on the news in those situations. Too bad some semi didn't swerve around and darwin his dumb ***. Put a lot of lives at risk with that stunt. Don't mind people risking there own brain pans, just don't take the rest of us with you.

With the video take of the whole thing, if the guy really did run I'm expecting a BIG court case when he's caught. The hit and run combined with careless/wreckless driving - with forethought! - should be a slam dunk felony case for the DA.

Pick your spots idiots! Don't play in traffic!

How do you have that little regard for the safety of others? That smokescreen stunt almost made me gag. I bet those dudes have massive dicks.
