I'm sure the videos of him smoldering the tires before the 500 mile break-in will help immensely with the sale

Personally, if I were to list for sale a used performance car I'd disclose any "abuse" or hard driving that the car has experienced. Because I think being honest and truthful is good in all things you do.

Ah interesting.

That is very good to hear that GM actually is standing behind proper use of track driving.

The only reason I of all people would call it abuse and out of warranty is he raced and tracked without breaking in the axles. Rule book says no track or hard use until 1500 miles. It would be hard to throw down 140k on a car that was already used outside of GM’s warranty threshold. Personally I think he car is fine and engineered very well. But GM might not honor the warranty and that’s hard to swallow for 6 figures.

nothing like getting a car that got publicly raped on video.. imagine "googling" your new ZR1 only to find out it went 6 rounds with Mike Tyson.

I do agree that the dealer needs to come clean and explain that it was lent out to someone and not driven by one of their own employees, even if he is put on as an employee just to get around the demo thing. It is a little shady in the way they are presenting it but it doesn't surprise me a car dealer would do this. Also would't surprise me if the people bidding didn't even pay attention to the mileage after see it listed as new. But for all we know the dealer may have even contacted GM before the car even arrived and explained what they planned on doing and received GM's blessing.

So now its officially a dealer car because a few people on a forum say so?

You really need to stop spreading information that you can not verify.

First you spoke on his revenue from youtube now this. Neither of which you can validate.

I agree his Clickbait titles are annoying as hell however it is cool that I've been following him since he had only 20,000 subscribers and now he is almost at 750,000. It's funny how YouTube fame works. Sometimes all the stars align and you just get lucky. I think that's what happened with him. When he sold his C7 Stingray and got the white Hellcat is when his channel really started growing. I believe that was back in 2016 when Hellcats were still a "new thing" and he seemed to be one of the only owners on YouTube making videos with it. Every other channel was like a professional channel just doing reviews. He took off after that and never looked back.
