I was shocked at how far he was from successfully doing a drift. He wasn't even close to making it. All he did was way overcook the turn. The article I got that from said it was a car club drive in NY & they tossed the guy from their club for being such a squid.

At least they cleared the way for him. On a side note that Focus is pretty quick according to my Car and Driver mag.

I drove around some Focus fanatics . They religiously crowned focus the best car . Never thought there were badass until this new RS .



Side note : while driving the canyons we stopped for a small break . A Lambo passed us and a Focus Fanatic quickly jumped into his car and began to chase. :



Lol at the video . Poor car

Re: Gravel gets another one!!!

That road is Rte.44/55 and is at the base of the Shawagunk Mountain;we ride that exact road regularly each season.
That hairpin curve has a posted speed of 5mph,every weekend there's at least one bike related accident. We had a GDC group ride back in the day and had a major casualty on that road. It's nasty

Re: Gravel gets another one!!!

I guess the "Drift Mode" didn't work?

Is it not supposed to drift the car for you?

I though that might be in up around your neck of the woods.

Seems the driver forgot to recite the mantra " I am one with the force and the force is with me ".

Pretty much, it reminds me of a guy doing his first wheelie by whacking the throttle wide open & dumping the clutch & actually thinking it's going to end well!

I tried that. I and the VF500 actually survived it . I was still on my permit at the time . I was expecting a smoky burnout . Nope bike stood straight up. Boy was I surprised . Had the presents of mine to pull in the clutch as I was sort of being dragged behind the bike . Managed not to drop the bike when it came back down .

Went to change the clutch a year later and found I had shattered one of the fiber disc's. To this day there are a couple of small pieces in the bottom of the oil pan that I couldn't find when the clutch was out. That little show also put a bunch of dents in the edges of the clutch basket .
Tekime likes this.
