I have lost to many of them that way.

That is why I drive a simpler car now :)

You might, but after the f350 meets that post, the front end will be all but indistinguishable from that of the Lambo.  It will be a bit less costly to get the F350 back into shape, however.


I had a friend with an "indestructible" 4wd vehicle (his terms).  Could take anything.
When I saw him commuting in on the train three days later, I asked why.  Seems his "indestructible" truck hit one of those parking lot "sleeper" parking curbs hidden under the snow and took out the front end rather comprehensively.

Did his foot slip off the clutch and land hard on the gas....  ::)

 ;D

P.S. It's a bad idea to wear flip-flops in the rain and drive a vehicle with a standard tranny... I've never had anything bad happen, but I came close once when my foot slipped off the clutch while I was backing out of a parking spot...

i was making a funny  ;D. however a few year ago a chevrolet malibu turned in front of me. i was going 45. minor damage to my f350. my truck hit the right front wheel and relocated the engine about 1 foot further to the left and pushed the mailbu across 2 lanes. i drove away and went to the store. a tow truck took the malibu away. if i still have the fotos i took i will post them.

Some of the F350 trucks around here could drive over the Lambo -- and not touch it   :o.  Jeeze, you could change the tranny and never need a jack (well, maybe some Jack after you're done).   8)

Strange.

Every vehicle I have ever driven that has a clutch (trucks and cars) has the brake pedal between the clutch and the gas.  I don't how how you could drive by using the same foot for both the clutch and gas.

But maybe the lambos are different???????????

My wife "ran over" a car with my cargo van and did not know it.  She did not have a car and was using my van to get to work. I noticed some extra color on my white van as I walked her out to it after lunch.  She got back to work to see a red sporty looking car with a messed up front fender, a woman crying, and a cop writing out a hit and run ticket.  She drove up in the van and explained she must have cut it to short and did not know she had hit the car.  The cop took a look at my van, stretch cargo 3/4 ton, and my wife, 4'11".  He closed his book and said exchange insurance, no hit and run ticket.  Turns out the woman had had her car less than 2 weeks!
