    1.) Top gear is NOT to be takes seriously, the hosts overexadurate, and will strait up lie for entertainment.
    2.)If the Corvette handles so bad, how is it possible that the C6 Z51 ran 7:56, and the Z06 7:42 at the n-ring? What about the hotlap wall? The C6 Z51 is right under the Exige, which has very similar power to weight, but more downforce and racing tires, the C6 is on runflats!
    According to your logic, we shouldn't take point 2 seriously.

    But just because it's at a proper track doesn't mean you can't crash. Maybe it will take someone you personally know being killed as a result of drag-strip racing for you to finally realise this....

    It's not likely he will crash on the street, but it is possible. Just as it is possible at the track. But crashing on the street could possibly be more dangerous.
    What? It's not "just as possible" when racing on the street there are many more factors you need to take into consideration such as road condition, other cars, even pedestrians. And since most street racing takes place after dark this ups the risk even more.

    Protection from death? So your saying injuring a bystander or having your vehicle impounded and your license revoked doesn't matter? Only death? You need to grow up and step into this little place called reality, and stop living in The Fast and the Furious. Tracks take proper safety precautions, they inspect the track, and as Taz stated they have paramedics ready. You cant find this on the street, unless you crash.

    Do I really need to physically name every reason why street racing is more dangerous/inappropriate than racing at a regulated drag strip so that you know that I know the danger/risk difference between the two. I FULLY, understand the differences...I HAVE STATED some, but not all. I WILL NOT state every possible advantage of racing at a track over racing on the street. WILL YOU PLEASE stop arguing against my PERSONAL OPINION.

    1 - The tyres on the Exige are not "racing" tyres - they are street legal and standard fit.

    2 - I don't see how it can be taken negatively that Lotus take a lightweight, track biased car and fit track biased tyres. To fit anything else would be as stupid as fitting solid lead wheels or dampers filled with jelly. If anything, any negative comment should be directed at GM for fitting the wrong tyres to their car.

    3 - Do you know if the car supplied to TG had runflats?

    Can we get some pics of the 'Stang and the Scoobie pleeeaaase?

    I reckon your Scoob'll own his Mustang..

    35bhp is a fair difference, plus, don't WRX's have AWD?
    Mustang's are Rear Drivers true? While you'll be zooming off he'll be smoking up his tyres!

    Just because it's rwd doesn't mean he'll be smoking his tires.

    chalk and cheese: its a difference in cultures, the mustang is a celebrationj of american muscle car heritage and style focusing on noise, drama and straight line power. The scooby rises from japanese high technology culture, Its size, efficiency and effectiveness reflect japanese expertise.

    Even the V6 Mustang? Isn't that a celebration of people who can't afford/don't want to pay for the fast model, does it represent the origional secretary's Mustang or perhaps its made for people who dream about being able to say they own a Mustang?

    Oh buts its ok that numerous members parade around saying "Americans are dumb and fat etc."?
    Take your own advise and get a sense of humor.

    The media is nothing but opinions, get used to it.

    1 - The tyres on the Exige are not "racing" tyres - they are street legal and standard fit.

    I agree that GM is pretty dumb putting runflats on their sports car, even the Z06. Gm provided the vette for top gear, no? Its a stock Z51, and like all vettes (aside from the C5 Z06) its only tire option in a runflat.
