    First post? Welcome to the Club!

    Drifting is for RWD cars. Sorry to see your result.

    Hope you learned your lesson. That was an extremely stupid thing to do. Oh, and no, it wasn't in rear wheel drive. You just had more rear bias, you can do some serious damage to the center diff like that.

    1.) People without common sense should probably stick to public transportation.

    2.) Saying that your heroic Kennith Block, inspired you enough to drive foolishly and more than apparently beyond your skill level goes to prove we are dealing with a clear and concise lapse of judgment and maturity. See #1.

    3.) It's because of people like this that it becomes harder and harder to find a used car in the "performance" criteria that hasn't been abused and treated like utter ****.

    Thank you kind sir for becoming a statistic, and raising our insurance rates even more.

    After SCCA racing and track racing, all other forms just go out the window with regards to fun. Plus it's safe, regulated, and jackasses are thrown out for ruining it for everyone else. There's an actually community at these races where everyone treats everyone else with respect, and there is a sense of comradary that you don't get anywhere else. Want to go for a ride in someone elses car? Chances are they'll let you unless it's their main time getting lap (i.e. last of the set).

    SCCA is an unbelievably amazing organization.
