This is why insurance for young men is so freakin expensive! I remember back when I was a young man....Dear lord I'm old....I had just bought a new car and the insurance for it each month was more than the car payment! Because, they said, I was a high risk!
So...the moral of this story is.... Only kids with insanely rich parents can afford to do 85 in a supra and crash it with no consequence!
I fell bad for the kid, but frankly... If he survives this, maybe...Just MAYBE...He will have learned his lesson!
Besides that. He just single handedly jacked up the insurance rates for all of the responsible young people in America! I'm sure my eldest will appreciate that!

|duner440||They were saying on the news this morning that he was racing a Dodge Viper and lost control at 85 mph. I have to say that in my day I did a lot of street racing in my Trans Am. I just got lucky not to crash. He can definitly drive, I have seen the videos. I agree with Chad P. He is a young kid who has access to fast cars outside of the track and just not mature enough to have one yet. Hopefully he will learn from this.|

|RIPBiker13||That's kinda what I'm afraid of. Until this point he has taken good care of it though. I did stuff like that with the car too, but I learned how to drive it, and I wasn't 17 at the time.|

|RIPBiker13||My brother-in-law is 17 and his dad bought my 97 Cobra from me so I could buy my Jeep. He showed me a video of a burnout today (nice one though) and I just PRAY he isn't gonna be stupid with that car. I built it up, and used to race it. The last dyno was 350hp/345fpt|

|Badge1236||Just goes to show you the results you think that you are indistructable and have access to a fast car.|

|hutchman||Hi speed is never the cause of an "accident," rather it is the inability of the driver to drive that is the cause.|

Damn, driving age should be raised to 25.

|penguin_in_a_cj||kid shouldn't be allowed in anything other than a 3 cylinder carbarated geo metro with an auto trans with his track record|

I'm surprised it didn't happen sooner. The kid has built that Supra since he was 15(now 17) and is racing in the Drifting circuit. He's wreaked 3, yes 3, Vipers while drifting.
I just hope to god his passenger is ok and doesn't get back in the car with him.
