All of that just gives you a type of thrill that you just can't experience by driving fast alone, it's the concept of if you fuck up you probably won't survive.

That's where knowing you car's capabilities, strengths & weaknesses, the road's surface, and then putting It all Into practice accordingly makes all the difference. It's like jumping Into a friends car, having no clue how It handles and what It's capable of, and then driving It In the manner you've mentioned.

Judging by what you've said, It sounds like a lot of fun. Perhaps somewhat scary (In some parts), but overall a good way to spend a Friday night.

And $200 in leaded gasoline (that shit's like $13 a gallon now...)
I will keep that list up to date at all times. Check often for new materials!

Goodness, that's so expensive.

In my locality we go by liters. I've worked It out In gallons, and we pay (depending where we fill up) $4.95 a gallon.

I think most of the world has made it illegal to run leaded gasoline in street cars, so my guess is that what you're getting is either unleaded gasoline or E-10. E10 being more common in the US, about $2.50-2.75/gal, and regular unleaded being about $3.50
