Forum Wars Follow-Up: Episode One is Live

Friend of Hooniverse Rob Krider, in a Shelby Mustang GT, goes up against a typical forum douche some dude in a 350Z. The video is available at The Forum Wars. The clip is long enough to be entertaining but short enough where you can watch it at your desk at work without attracting attention from The Bobs.
Quick synopsis for those who are impatient: Rob has a Mustang and Other Guy has a 350Z. They talk a little smack and then head to the drag strip. After the strip, some excuses and more trash talking before heading to a road course. Each driver has just these two events to prove their car is better and they are more skilled be hind the wheel.
I didn’t tell you who wins so you can go see for yourself…but here is a hint, it’s Rob.

    (Uh, it's Al Navarro here, I decided to do that wordpress log-in thing): Totally watchable. And from where I sit (inside an advertising agency), a genius move for sponsor Royal Purple. I propose LSiS vs. Atom for a future episode. Those Atom bastards are always trash talking Se7ens…saying they're fine "for the money" and all.

    I wonder when the Morris Marina club are going to appear? I look forward to seeing Carla Bruni.

    Can we get Eyesore Racing to start smack talking the Metrognomes for an inner-forum war?

      Oh GOD that is an awesome idea!

      This is the best idea I've heard all day.

    I think an episode on the Mercedes W123 forums would be interesting. There are plenty of fun rivalries within that car's owner base, gassers versus diesels, diesels versus veggie-oil…

    Who wants to run their 4 banger automatic Ranger against me and my TrailBlazer? That's about the only thing I've got a chance at.

      I if I still had my Ranger I would do so in a heart beat…

      How about a 97 F-150? Roughly the same size as a current Ranger. However, its a 5-speed, so it would be no contest.

        No way! I know my truck's limits! 4 cylinders and a slushbox is about all I can beat. Sent from my Verizon Wireless BlackBerry

      How about my '66 F100 with three on the tree? I'll put up a USB cable and wall charger from my Blackberry that I rarely use. Plus the CD. Maybe you could use them, having a Verizon Blackberry.

      I already said, I don't know where Silver 1995 Ford Ranger is. And it was a manual.

    Hrmmm. That was definitely fun, but I sensed a certain amount of playing to type that distracted me.
    Also. If the term "grip driving" makes it into the general lexicon, I'm going to go postal.

    They actually showed two whole laps of a road course with no cuts and no obnoxious music! I love it!
    @Smells_Homeless: I'm right there with you on "grip driving." Ugh.

    The BMW vs. Porsche race can't be too far off. It'll be a study in douchebaggery and popped collars, for sure, but could be entertaining.

    Spoiler Alert! I'm no Nissan fanboy, but that seemed more like a victory of the driver, not necessarily the car. I would like to see the time a 370Z would turn without all the smoke and noise.

      Also, with Hoosier stickies like Rob's 'Stang had. On a course of that length those tires alone could be worth a couple of seconds.

    Please, I don't pop my collar.

    Well, I'm biased in that I always like to see a Mustang perform, but I have to call level 1 shenanigans.
    If it's a Forum War race, you should have to drive your own car. Krider is an experienced racer driving someone else's fully prepped SCCA Mustang. If that's the game, I'm sure 350Z guy could've found a more experienced driver than himself to use his car and had a much better showing.

      I know what you are saying, but it is so satisfying to see that Z driver get slapped down. The disparity in ability is obvious in watching the videos, but the times were closer than they should have been, meaning that must be a pretty tight Z. But to lose and then the first thing out of the Z drivers mouth…'my clutch pedal stuck to the floor, don't know what that was…' Lame, just lame. Man up, say you got beat by a better driver, go pay the money for some driver 'edjukashun', and come back for another go. Only a poor workman blames his tools.
