Need for Speed

Absolutely nothing to do with Jeeps but got to drive a Ferrari F430 around Firebird this AM. I'm not really into exotic cars but this thing was pretty wicked. Unfortunately we were on the short track and only got 4 laps but was still a blast and a bit scary fast. And I'm not afraid of speed! Makes me wish my Jeep was set up to handle high speed stuff better though, I miss going fast. Hummm..









And this gives new meaning to "big brake kit"!


Some other nice hardware out there as well

Hey, I drive way better on road than off. Well, in my own mind I do anyway....

I had to get track insurance to drive it. The deductible was $5k(!) so I made damn sure I kept it on the pavement! One bent rim would have probably would have cost $5k and pretty sure they would not have let me beat it back into shape with a hammer like I do on the Jeep, LOL.

Re: Need for Speed

Matt I almost did that today with you!...could've been cheaper than my day too lol. But I didn't know about the 5k deductible until Tuesday. I can't afford that so I backed out.

Re: Need for Speed

Yeah, I guess insurance for these cars are at a different level just like everything else that goes with them. I just tried to not think about the dude that obliterated his Enzo a few years back!
