Yeah, they're so dumb that they can't even mount 'em facing the right way!

Driving the monoleafs does feel very different. I always wanted to swap in coilovers and get rid of mine but it isn't bad, just different.

Anyway hardon, you're right about the classic mustangs vs. classic ferraris thing, I guess I was thinking in my head of the more mordern cars. I'd say probably since the 355 (and that's going on what, 20 years old now?), ferrari's cars and exotics in general have been getting quicker exponentially. even the "base model" (lol) ferrari's have been very powerful and fast in a straight. everything else had just been left in the dust until very recently.

anyway, who cares that much about that anyway, the really interesting thing to me as that as a driver's car the boss ranked in about the middle of the pack of some of the world's best cars. that's saying something.

what it doesn't say though is just how fucking hideous the two tone red paintjobs on the laguna seca bosses are.

True, bummer that the McLaren ended up crushed and half melted though.

IIRC they used his McLaren in the F1 vs. Veyron race (I believe Jeremy mentions that fact during his SIARPC segment), he crashed it for the second time a short while ago and there were reports that there was fire damage in addition to the impact damage.
