    GREAT resource! Thanks! I just may give that a shot. Throttle response was also exactly what I was looking to improve too

    Perhaps you're the one who needs a real car?

    Proudly saying "DIED" = I crashed it bad and so it died

    I could be wrong but its something to be proud of for some reason. To some it probably mean I drive fast with no fear but then again it probably mean I cant drive and so I crashed

    If you are modding your car, make sure you upgrade your clutch as well as the handling, brakes and so on.

    You will naturaly drive the car harder when you know you got that extra power...its the feeling of that achievement even though the mod made no difference at all, the loud exhaust is enough to make you do this

    I'd use the word "totaled" if I crashed a car. Use of the word "died" connotates it stopped running due to mechanical failure.

    and I'd say it means you can't drive as well as you thought.

    I just had some scary experience, I thought Ill post it.

    I'd use the word "totaled" if I crashed a car.

    Saying that, I nearly done the same hitting a car while reversing at high speed. Literally just now on my way home I was attacked by a group of youth. They start banging at the car with their fist, so I reversed out of the deadend and once I got further away they start throwing brick at us. Thanks god the windscreen didnt smash, the GF was well shaken then.

    They must have thought I was the rival gang or something

    Oh man I have never reversed so fast in a public road before.

    I would have run the ****ers down. Goddamn punk kids. Throwing a brick at the windsheild of your car is definately grounds for self defense. I mean, attacking someone in a vehicle made of a half ton of steel while on foot is ASKING to be removed from the gene pool.

    I thought about it, but then the law is crazy in UK when it comes to defending yourself.

    Infact they were all stupid as they stood and banged the front of the car. If I was crazy enough I could have run them down against the brick wall.

    Thanks god I made the right decision and got away with just a cracked window and a dented bonnet, it could have been much worst.
