Yeah, just when you think you have quite a bit a h.p. in your own car,
go out and try doing consecutive dry pavement 360's spinning the car
on its own axis. I've no trouble doing this in snow,ice,gravel but wouldn't
even come close to be able to pull something like this on pavement.
My mouth fell open while watching Sprongle do this
and did you see how close the crowd watching this was to the car?
They were within feet of the spinning S2! Damn good driver is all I have
to say! Now, where can I get that lehmann 400+h.p. motor for cheap;-)
