Two Turkeys on Thanksgiving Wrecking their Corvettes in The Woodlands - YouTube
Wow. Those guys driving are idiots. Just imagine if they hit a little kid. SPLAT!
People like that shouldn't be allowed to get cars.
Why? If we didn't let them buy good cars they'd buy shitty ones, do them up and still pull stunts like this.
Now it's fixed.
The C5 was actually winning til it lost control.
I wholeheartedly agree
I dunno. I quite enjoy laughing at the misfortunes of others when rooted in stupidity, and I'd like my kids to have the same joy at some point.
You can never truly stop stupid, you can only hope to limit it. Fear not, there will always be stupid for our children, it doesn't mean we have to let it freely propagate.
Makes sense, and with the internet being in full swing... heh

Those guys can go fuck the stars for all I care. Reckless endangerment.
Fucking assholes. Didn't someone else do something similar to this and ended up killing another person with him?
Wait, wtf is this thread even about?
I'll counter that with a Saturday Crush!
2 reckless corvette drivers who were trying to be cool and race but crashed into each other.
Are the Corvettes okay?
I'm not against drag racing as I've done it and it's fun. The thing is, if you should never push the car harder than you ever have on the street, especially during a race. Do that in an open area where you won't tear anything up if you lose it. Until you are comfortable pushing the car that hard. That's what happened here. The C5 driver was so determined to beat the C6, he pushed it harder and obviously wasn't used to the car's little behaviors at that speed. The guy in the C6 messed up because he hit the brakes. If'd he'd have stayed on it, the other car would have went into that ditch behind him. Or, if he'd have hit the brakes harder, it would have shot over in front of him. He hit the brakes, lifted, then hit them again and got slammed in the side. And It doesn't look like he pushed the pedal to the floor the first time or the car would've nose dived ( and avoided being hit ).
Inexperience was to blame for the crash, firstly on the C5 driver, but also on the C6 driver for sloppy pedal work to avoid it.
I don't think that people are objecting to the concept of drag racing, but rather that these dumbasses were doing it on a public road and therefore put innocent bystanders at risk.
No, stupidity was to blame for the crash. You wanna race take it to a track. I've had people want to race me and I just let them act like fools. Beating someone in a race on a public road isn't worth the potential consequences if something goes wrong.
