Whoa!

So wrong on so many levels. I couldn't watch more than a minute or so.

What the heck was that?

Arkadi, no reason to bring Ben into this . . . No problem with instructing in car. Just have to be in control of the situation and this idiots with hand signals is, just an idiot.

I can say without a doubt that back in my instructing days I hated getting assigned to some middle age, gold rope chain wearing, brand new Z06 driving (Viper or any high hp somewhat squirly car) novice that believes he and his 1/4 mile blasting car was invincible. If, however, you cannot get control of the situation and immediately gain the student's respect, you have no business instructing.

He, He. Figured that's what this was. You've answered my question of how long it would take to hit Jalopnik.

As one other poster said, we finally have a video version of the "what my friends think I do" at the track meme.

This guy makes the "Flat Out Guy" look like a genius.

Re-watched this last night. A couple more observations:

6:15 - when he finally passes the GT3 going onto the oval he screams "Eat a dick you ****ing bitch" ...as if the red mist wasn't already apparent enough.

I've also learned when you overdrive the corner and the car starts to plow understeer apparently the best approach to fix this is add LOTS more steering angle.

How on earth did the car manage to go into neutral later on in the session???

I scream that whenever I pass anyone. A GT3, school bus with lights flashing, a kid on a scooter - it don't matter. I scream like I just won all the DEs.

If you watch this video in reverse you learn how to become the best instructor ever.

The comments are gold...here's my favourite:

His grip on the steering wheel is equivalent to a baby bear holding onto its mother when it sees a threat

The helmets are gold, as is the screaming "bitch" comment.

As I said, the imbecile in the passenger seat should have bought a lot of lottery tickets that day.

As for how it got in neutral, the :"driver" commented on that at the very end as they left the track. he apparently hit the shift lever with his elbow or something.

They are not ski helmets. They are the helmets some who ride the short bus wear.

While watching it I was wondering if I needed to get the Sea Bands out.
