    Would there be enough dick in that car to actually eat? Clearly there is enough douche for a refreshing shower.

    OK, I watched the first 30 seconds. Is that guy in the passenger seat of the C7 Z06 doing the Karate chops Jaku's fatter, younger brother?

    Who is this TA champion? And why is he missing apexes, need a terrible "instructor", and have pretty bad DE manners/racecraft?

    I thought this was funny from M3post.com:
    Quote Originally Posted by jphughan View Post

I've only watched the first 3 minutes and the guy is doing nothing but pointing to where he wants the student to be on track -- and he's using the wrong arm, which means he probably isn't even in the student's field of vision. But more importantly than that, the instructor isn't even looking at this guy's wild steering inputs and throttle technique. Of course lack of a communicator means there's only so much the instructor can say in the first place, but that's just further evidence of a poor instructor (and/or poorly run DE group) rather than an excuse for the lack of more comprehensive instruction.

    If that were my student, I also would not have let him trail a GT3 that closely for that long, especially given his apparent skill level. If the GT3 isn't giving a pass for whatever reason (probably because he knows he'll need it right back in the corners), then I would tell that student to hang back and let him get away. Sitting on somebody's tail like that, especially going into a braking zone where the guy in front may well have more stopping ability than you, is not only a recipe for an accident, it's also less enjoyable than just hanging back for a while and then having some open track in front of you.

    But here are my personal favorites in this video for those who don't want to watch the whole thing:

    - 5:35: Full throttle in a 650hp car with the wheel turned 100 degrees and another car less than a quarter car length directly in front of him.

    - 5:55 to 6:20: Preoccupation with passing the GT3 caused him to again go full throttle mid-corner multiple times (once directly behind the GT3) and take a momentum-destroying line that even had him hitting a cone. And then the priceless, absurd and completely unearned "victory rant" on the front straight.

    - 6:44: Takes his hand off the wheel while doing 120 MPH...to honk his horn!! And even if there were a good reason to do that on track, this wasn't one.

    - 13:20 to 13:25: While understeering, cranks the wheel harder hoping that somehow physics would stop applying to him, then cranks hard the other direction right away, and THEN buries the throttle while still making huge steering corrections on corner exit.

    - 14:57: Full throttle with the wheel turned more than 180 degrees!!

    It was amazing. In some of the corners you can see he floored the throttle with huge steering inputs and the car still turned. Another time exiting Turn 6 he just came turning the wheel more and more while gassing it and the car still turned. It must really be a GT-R....

    He was driving flat out and operating on a much higher level.
    If nothing happens and there is no one around why did it not happen?

    He was doing 116 in the banking on a few of the laps, where Supermiata runs nose to tail at 127mph.

    I think he thought he was going to get pulled over by the police because he takes his gun out of his back pocket and hands it to his "instructor".

    Can someone explain to me the big giant lifts on the banking? Or was some of the traffic only visible in the infrared spectrum?

    Sometimes you need to lift suddenly at 116 MPH. If you ever went that fast you would know that is right on the edge.....
