    It has been said that Dave Dalke has never driven a car WOT that hasnt been strapped down and stationary, and that he only knows how to operate a vehicle while staring out the drivers side window, or at the passenger seat.

    Seems the only time I saw a Supercoupe with a Turbo do anything, it was strapped down and stationary.

    Your just so easy a target for us old farts to shoot out. Now if you were a little faster, like in the 11 second range you might be a harder target to hit
