The Corvette loosing control genre is one of my favorite Youtube genres. It's a bottomless sundae of schadenfreude.

"Giant giggling cleavage being pushed back by muscle car's accelerating G forces" sure is a popular genre.
That's what she said!!

You know what? Maybe this is his first day with the 'vette, but he spent a lifetime molding himself into the gormless douche-nozzle you see spinning in the trees. Show some respect.

Looks like this boy racer wanted to drive a corvette... but all he got was a corwrecked.

"And the eighth and final rule of owning a Corvette: if this is your first day of owning a Corvette, you have to crash into something."

Looks like he should have bought an automatic.
I've almost had this happen to me in fast cars until I learned how race car drivers use their clutches. A bad gear shift can be almost as destructive to your traction as locking the brakes.

Yeah, they can still do that. They're not made out of God.

5 stars for the related yt videos. Buxom lasses riding shotgun in fast cars.

"The car had been off the lot for about 24 hours. Itís a Z07 package with the manual 7. The cause of the accident was a misunderstanding about launch control: it was his [the driverís] first time using it, it controlled the torque completely through first gear at wide open throttle. After shifting to second (expecting the torque management to continue working) it was unrestricted power to the wheels and just came as a surprise, which is why there wasnít really a reaction to it. The car was in track suspension mode and sport 1 traction control, so active handling wouldíve been expected to handle slight yaw from wheel spin, but didnít. The driver was experienced with high power cars and owns a heads/cam/intake c6 z06 also."
I don't know what any of that means! It sounds made up.
Guy crashes his car because he was furiously fumbling his tiny dick while trying to drive it
Thanks, Oddeye. That really helps getting to the heart of the matter.
Launch control: computer does all the work to make the car accelerate from a stop to (in this case) the end of 1st gear without spinning the tires or making the car spin out. It is used with the hum0n holding the gas pedal all the way down.
The computer stops maximum babysitting after first gear for this car, and in this case the hum0n told the computer that he's an awesome race car driver on a racing track so he doesn't need computer help.
Then he buried his foot and the accelerator pedal into the floor after switching into second, the computer said "whatever" and he lost traction at the rear wheels.
Technology can be great, but a lot of the time it's more like outsourcing competence.
Like letting the little head think for the big one.
We're at a point in the horsepower wars where most high performance cars are undrivable without a bunch of computer assistance.
Most of them will kill you if you turn off all the computer aids and try to wave your dick around
Weird. I didn't know any of this stuff. I drive a Honda Fit.
So, you have a huge dick? Nice to know.
Honda fit has a lot of the same traction control aids as the corvette, minus the launch control.
ABS, Stability Control and Traction Control are required standard equipment on any new car sold in America, far as I remember.
Yeah I nearly speed into trees on a daily basis

This made me kinda sad, because damn that's a sexy automobile. I was one of those trapper keeper ferarri/corvette kids and it's been sad to see so many new models of formerly cool cars, like Dodge Charger and Ford Mustang, get some new look, and I sort of lost interest in sports/fast cars by the early 90s. Corvette's keeping it real.
5 stars for the inexplicable use of some pretty cool zoom program or something for your phone to make it all cinematic and forgetting to turn it horizontal. With or without the crash it would've been like "oops."
How is corvette keeping it real vs the other new look muscle cars?
Ooo! Ooo! Car nostalgia!
My brother bought an 84 Mustang around 89 or 90. He tore that thing apart and put it back together (literally. My mother got rather edgy after the first two weeks of engine parts taking up all the floor space in the garage.) I thought it was the coolest car ever, because it was my big brother's car. And it had T-tops.
To each their own, but I wasn't impressed by the new Charger or Dodge.. they didn't capture whatever it was that made the old ones so awesome to me, but this new Corvette still captures neon palmtrees and the themesong to Miami Vice to me.
It also doesn't help that the cops drive new Chargers now.. I did see one pull a pretty awesome move the other day across a roundabout going after someone, but it wasn't badass like Bullitt doing the same thing.. :/
But then again nothing's badass like Bullitt doing the same thing no matter what that thing is, except for Teenertot's brother's car.. it was weird how both me and my older brother were super into cars at one point, and between the two of us we've owned a Dodge Spirit and Volkswagen Jetta and that's about it.

lots of sad old tail pipe suckers here

Watching guys like this fuck up and destroy precious expensive cars while trying to look cool is one of my favorite things ever.

I think it's funny people still think there's some kind of real American muscle car tradition anymore when pretty much all of them are made from outsourced labor, parts, and designs and don't remotely resemble anything that made the original cars the classics they became.
A sucker born every minute, as they say.
yeah but they still look like uncut American cocks so it still counts.
