BTW...
Awesome post. Really shows whats needed and the side affects and most aspects of a higher hp build.
It's more of a generalization. Younger inexperienced drivers cause/have more accidents. You can't argue with statistics. There always were and always will be more responsible teens and the same can be said at every age group really. What's being pointed out is that as you get older you make different decisions, those decisions are being made based on past experiences. When it comes to cars I have much more control over my car today than I did 20 years ago, I won't keep my foot into as long as back then, I have a better understanding of the acceleration and velocity of my car today than back then, I'll get on the brakes sooner today, and so on. Experience cannot be taught. Cars are getting faster and faster but drivers don't become better drivers as technology advances. I've never met anyone that said 'I wish I was as naive and uneducated (not talking school) today as I was back then'. It's always 'I wish I knew then what I know now.'
