Sorry...I'll skip my next couple of events so that I can memorize it
and make an ass out of myself like you.  I wasn't weren't
there.  The folks who were seem to think that it was a safe distance
from things, and the fact that the car could do what it did and not
hit anything (not come close, even) is testament that he was a safe
distance out.

the driver's perspective on this and applying it to the extent that 'the
was too close to the timing trailer' is more than just a little extreme.

No.  I think it's an explanation that a safe course can be made unsafe
when the nut behind the wheel comes loose.  EVERY course has that
potential, so I guess we all better stay home, eh?

>No, I blame people like you for just not knowing any better.

You must be the only person on earth to never drive outside the
envelope in search of that extra 1/10th.  Congratulations.  I bet that
really helps you improve as a driver.

The mule frustrated and annoyed me when I tried to reason with it on
the C4 Corvette issue.  I should have learned then that it's not worth
my time to try and reason with a blowhard Monday morning quarterback.
