You mean "this kid". You haven't met a ZR1 yet.

I get that and yes props for running it. But vids like this get all the haters stirred up and has kids in bolt on 10 speed GTs thinking they are running right there with 150k ZR1s (albeit in a straight line). I almost feel as if he gets more views with the car if it runs poor because negative press goes viral almost instantly.

Case in point- look at the title of his latest vid (now titled 'I can't get out of the 11s'). And I swear the other day when I looked it was titled with blown clutch insinuating he blew the new ZR1's clutch but it was the other car.....

That guy is all about getting people to watch his videos... nothing more.

Can't drive... and most the videos are 9 mins of complete irrelevancy... and 1 minute of what you actually were hoping to see.

Best Regards,
Dave

I really dislike his choppy editing. I get that the videos contain content that people want to see, but the presentation is on an amateur level.

Click bait at its finest. You pick a misleading title, wait for the dust to settle, change it up to attract more suckers! Lol

M7 to M7 not much to worry about. In fact I'm hoping patiently the chance meeting comes!
