The best part about owning a driver's car is that you can play out your race car hero fantasies. The worst part about owning a driver's car is that you can play out your race car hero fantasies. Confused? Here, just follow this simple recipe.
1xCar unable to perform as anticipated
20 years of watching Motorsports to "get it"
Mix the inexperience, confidence and Motorsports watching in a large bowl, preferably with a wooden spoon so you can lick some of that sweet sweet ignorance off later. Set the road and vehicle to the side. When mixed, place bowl in front of computer and stream 100 hours or so of Ken Block, street racing, and rally compilation videos. When mixture begins to rise steadily drip in enthusiastic encouragement gathered from strangers with limited to zero experience on the subject. It's at this point that the mixture should begin to take shape. When the mixture is done rising and has set, you may place it in the vehicle on the public road and watch as it does stupid dangerous things. Lick spoon eagerly. Internet commenters will verily agree that this is the best thing theyve ever seen and will shower the mixture with encouragement.
Film it, put on youtube, repeat recipe.
Having done this myself at least twice, I can say that my heart goes out to Klic, and to everyone else who's driven their budget hoonmobile off a cliff/through a tree/into a parked Corolla just around the corner from home (sorry mom and dad).
