    I know what you are saying, but the white 86 really was just lame...... Was literally just driving around..... Wasn't going hard enough to even get a feel for it....

    Fresh out of Hospital ( everything is where it is suppose to be , all is good in the world ) I did not even scare any kids while there , in fact a person at the Hospital was actually at the hiilclimb last week with two children ages 6 and 8 . The children where heard to squeal with DELIGHT, not FEAR as mine and many other cars whistled past.
    So my learned detractor may have been a little confused (or have a different agender ).

    My 10 cents worth on the FT86 driver is simple ( I will tell it to anyone who will listen ) but I never follow my own advise . But we do this driving thing to get enjoyment for ourselves , not to please others. You should drive as fast as you feel comfortable with , not beyond your skills or cars abilities. Not much point wrecking your machine and scaring yourself silly , build your pace and modify your car to suit . There is plenty of time to go fully sick. It can be a delicate balance between , money , vehicle usage ( track , road or both ) , all play role on how you approach an event most important thing is to have fun , if you are not having fun then , you will not be doing it for very long.
    Cheers Bob

    Couldn't agree more with drive at your own pace, but by the sounds of it my mum hoons to church on a sunday quicker than this guy was driving...

    One thing i did find a little sad was hearing that 19 year old bought a gt86 and his insurance bill for the first year was $5,600 with a $1,500 excess, next year it is still $4,800 with the same excess.

    Makes it worth holding out until you are older to get something new.
