One of the big misconceptions about street racing is that it's all done by idiot kids in Honda Civics. Another is that if you have a nice car, then you must be a good driver. But here we have a Nissan GT-R racing against a Ferrari 458 in Taiwan, until everything completely and inevitably falls apart.

I totally get the compulsion to street race if you're in one of these cars. "This is a beautiful machine, purpose-built for speed and the crucible of the track," you might think. "Surely it can handle doing 90 or whatever on a piddly little highway."

But alas, you are not Mario Andretti, and besides, Mario Andretti never had to contend with himself being an idiot and racing someone else in a Nissan GT-R while traffic placidly toodles along in the next lane over.

Don't be a tool.
