Motorhome Racing

Top Gear is one of my favorite shows and I just found a new favorite episode...



Not only does it leave me ROFL, but it shows why a skoolie is Better!

"...there's quite a lot of understeer occurring..." ROFL

man, what are you talking about, i think about that sorta stuff in my car!! lol. i live in an over-cramped college town full of rich kid idiots who a) drive vehicles they have to have their parents fill with gas & b) don't know how to drive a sub-compact, let alone the full size suv their in. makes me glad i drive a fairly safe car!


mental note: take the 9 iron, torque wrench, chain, animal control snare, bicycle parts & other implements of destruction out of the car before i go back out on the road!! lol. ;)

Re: Motorhome Racing

Check out this myspace video of a bus with the front end ripped off - still driving. Looks in worse shape than most of those motorhomes after that race.
