Yeah, and that’s the problem. The younger set doesn’t get that there are places not to hoon. My next door neighbor obviously went to a race at some point and heard how they drive in and out of the paddock, and wants to imitate them. So there’s a lot of throttle blipping in neutral on the driveway, followed by full throttle takeoffs where he’s often up to 60 before he gets to the end of the street.
I don’t have a problem with loud exhausts either as long as their owner knows where and when to enjoy them. But I find myself wishing this kid’s car would get totaled so I don’t have to hear him anymore, and that’s coming from a car guy who likes race cars. I imagine the other neighbors are probably having fantasies about brutal murder right about now.
The really disturbing bit about this kid, who is in tech school right now and is therefore at least 18, is that he gets even more loud and obnoxious when the 12 year old blond girl down the street is outside. I mean, showing off for little girls? Seriously?
