This is dope! A 240Z more or less tuned the way the Devil Z was in the Wangan Midnight manga.

Condemnation of the new record began flowing soon after it became public knowledge.

However, as former record-holder Bolian notes, there is a level of hypocrisy involved in criticism from fellow Cannonball Run competitors.

"Do I think this is the best use of time while the country is staying in during a pandemic?" he told R&T.

"Probably not, but for me to say it's awful is like a cocaine dealer saying a heroin dealer is awful."

^ sour grapes hehe

IMO it's safer now than ever to do the record because there are far fewer cars on the road and average speeds are higher (mean small speed difference when a car on a cannonball run passes them).

Of course it just looks bad and irresponsible because people are sheltering and then you have a bunch of doofuses setting speed records, but it was bad and irresponsible even when people weren't on lockdown anyway.

Question now is how many people are doing it? Somehow I feel like these guys aren't the only ones to have thought of cannonball run.

I'm putting my CTEK battery maintainer to good use these days. I still start the engine and roll the tires a bit at least once a week though.

Went out for a spirited drive on the Sorento and the Mazda2. Glad they didn't close the twisty backroads near pur place.

NEW YORK (Reuters) - U.S. crude oil futures collapsed below $0 on Monday for the first time in history, amid a coronavirus-induced supply glut, ending the day at a stunning minus $37.63 a barrel as desperate traders paid to get rid of oil.
