Thumbs up Sentra vs M3 *Mountain Road Video*

Here's a nighttime video taking a Sentra through some very twisty roads. Just thought some of you would like it.

Cool road, but I couldn't watch the whole thing... the sound of the auto tranny shifting up & down & up & down was too painful...

Um, that wasnt an auto...he left it in the same gear most of the time, a clutch coasted most of the way down. I know where that road is in SoCal (sorry, rule of touge, you dont tell where its at), and you coast down most of it, its alot steaper then it looks in that video. Automatic tranny..LOL!!! listen to him start off at the begining...thats not an auto, an auto would never rev that high.

OK, NM, i stand corrected...when it shifts with his hand on the wheel its an auto..ugh how did i miss that one?

Yeah, that driving was preaty hidous. Unfortunatly, the guys from SRO are more about straight line then the curvy stuff. There are a couple of Team Running Free members bassed in the US that come to touge. You want to see driving skill...damn. Oh well, i think the guy in that M was laughing most of the time as he putted along waiting for that sentra to keep up.

I don't know about you guys, but it's pretty clear to me that if you feel the need to put a helmet on for something you are doing on a public road that is just wrong.

Do the other people who might be on that road get helmets too, or does their risk not matter?

Alex (just being a pain)

Reminds me of some the rallies we used to do in high school. That was some really stupid ****. I know I'm gonna sound like an old man, but don't try this at home. Out of five nighttime rallies, we had one spun out honda with a smashed rear quarter panel, a toyota that almost went off a cliff, a celica that was making funny engine noises after a run, and a cabriolet that sustained $3000 in damage from sliding off the road into a ditch. Needless to say, I did have fun in my Scirocco on those runs, but we were extremely lucky that no one got hurt.
