You're right, the reasonable alternative is to drive 190 mph and weave in and out of traffic.

in BC our insurance/licensing agency is government ran (Crown corporation) ...not many people win against them in general

as far as the blunt ..well studies show otherwise but thats off topic

thats why there is the right lane, the left lane is for people who are in a rush and want to speed everywhere.

That's incorrect. It depends on what province you live in. In Alberta, insurance is private.

True. This car is well within reach of most hooligans out there.

Hey with, let's not smash on the young people. It is attainable by us but that doesn't mean we are crazy about it. Hell I'm more afraid to drive this thing nuts cause I am more afraid of something happening cause idk if I can afford it haha

The thing is though -- this guy isn't exactly 18 or even 25 years old which most would consider a "hooligan". Therefore, I don't think age is much of a factor in this situation.

I read an article on Jalopnik I think that said the problem with the Hellcats will be the third owner. Logic was 1st buyer could afford to pay full freight, so likely older and more responsible. Babies it, Sunday car. Second owner is an enthusiast who has to wait for depreciation etc, but he still loves it like a dream car, daily drives it, drives it hard but cares for it cos he prolly had to make a few sacrifices to get it. By the time it gets to the third driver its a younger guy that doesn't have much driving experience, doesn't understand what that kind of power will do, and since he didn't pay as much for it doesn't value it as highly.

I would say for the most part we are in a second owner phase, rounding to third.

So in reality I am the third owner, but in heart I am the second owner

Same exact thing happened with the STI when it was first released, at least in Canada. The majority of owners were in their early to late 30s with established lives. There was the odd kid with rich parents, but they were an outlier. By the time I bought my STI from a first owner friend, a lot were in the hands of 18-20 year olds. When I eventually sold mine, they were in the $15,000-$18,000 range; well within the reach of teenagers.

Yeah, I read the original article and linked it here somewhere on the forums ages ago...it's really something that doesn't cross our minds now but in the future it will. The title is "The most dangerous thing about the 2016 hellcat" or something like that. As you said, the 3rd owner.

I'd argue that this situation on empty-ish industrial roads isn't that bad. If he hits a parked car, bad on him. Public roads with other people is not good though. I saw a video maybe last week where he blew by another car at 200 while racing a BMW. Definitely not cool.

Edit: the "autobahn" sure looks a lot like a desert. Didn't realize Germany was so dry.

Looks like he is near the beach, somewhere near NYC I presume, I have driven a fair bit on the autobahn and above 120mph it is a too hand job - he is going 190 while filming with one hand. At least when he does get caught, it will be cheap for us taxpayers since he has a large instagram account full of guilty evidence!

Or maybe he can save us even more and suckstart a shotgun before he kills someone else.

Personally, I don't have a problem with rattling around in an industrial park after hours.
Not like people couldnt hear him coming lol.

Lets just say that I would be being hypocritical if I gave him a hard time for this.
After all, I'm the guy who uses burnouts to teach his kids about limited slip differentials, camber, traction control etc.
My daughter explaining ABS to her granddad brought me great joy.

Yeah, I'd agree with that. I think members just don't like his hooning on the street with other cars around.
