Spoken like someone who's never driven a fast car...

That said, Richard makes every "car guy" look bad.

Fast is relative.

I once made a run from Stuttgart to Melnik (northeast of Prague), in just a few ticks under 3 hours, which included one border crossing, a couple toll booths, and dodging some annoying sugar-beet hauling trucks in rural areas between the border and Prague, all without running into anything. Somewhat more impressive than hitting the wall, 100 feet down a straight track.

Heck, even this Prius driver kept it straight, while blowing a Demon away.

So, nothing relevant, then? Right.

Impressive is relative.

I think it was in the driver's best interest to keep the prius straight...can you imagine hitting the wall at +100 mph in that thing!!

Good lord, do people even try anymore:

The stock Demon’s biggest limitation, when put up against other cars, is that it was built to be a drag machine from the factory. Its downside is that someone can come along in a more heavily tuned car
In other news, water is wet.
