    Not sure... you decide :)
    This woman is a menace to other road users.....stick me in the Pug any day (does that sound wrong? :snork: )
    Possible offensive language in the vid, again, not sure.
    There is a brilliant 'alternative' hand brake turn half way through :)

      Both equally as silly! At least Bullit seemed to be using the correct engine notes as a soundtrack though.

      The handbrake on a Peugeot 406 is NOT CAPABLE of that!

      The British do proper car chases................

        But in that Ronin clip you can see that the camera car kept getting in the way. That's why she was flashing her lights all the time. :lunapic 130165696578242 5:

          The whole thing was wrong - she was actually using her indicators and as we know women just don't do that:roflol:

            I liked the way that cars kept going up in flames immediately. That rarely happens (except in films) unless the fuel tank is virtually empty and the vapour receives a spark. In film car crashes the car hits something head on and goes up in flames before the fuel tank could have received any accelerant.

            Anyway, doesn't the camera that is filming the face of the driver become a hazard? That must cause a lot of accidents. :heehee:

              He upgraded to a 207 :) (he said it has an even better handbrake :heehee: )
              Those in-car cameras have to be mounted correctly. I have one, and it is up at the very top of the screen, behind the mirror. A good little item for £11 off Amazon :)
              Oh, and mine faces outwards :)

                Rally car handbrakes are hydraulic. Trust me, a new 406 would have struggled to pass the MOT test!

                The other thing about car chases that I hate is this;
                shot 1] our hero sawing away at the steering wheel with an earnest look of concentration on his face. He looks in the mirror..................
                shot 2] his foot suddenly pressing the accelerator down! on to...................
                shot 3] the speedo leaping upwards from 40mph!!! For christs sake - we were led to believe that he was running for his life but it turns out he was only doing 40mph!!!!
