I have killed many cars over the years with my other Pontiac, Firebird. At lot that were technically faster.
Sometimes it comes down to the nut that holds the steering wheel and the two resting on the drivers seat Sorry gals....no offense.

The twisty coastal roads around here are not forgiving of mistakes, as they are lined with monster fir trees that love to eat sheetmetal.

It was likely a 2nd gen non turbo model.

2-gen NA RX-7 or a 2-gen T2 -- should be no problem for a Bonne

Corning on the other hand -- the RX-7 will out perform a Bonnie anyday

You are correct -- most of the time it comes down to the skill of the driver and how well he\she knows their car!

Good run!

You are right about the cornering aspect. Damn Stabilitrak comes on and keeps putting on the binders. Sort of limits the four wheel drifting.

A good set of coil overs will help out but the only way I can figure to defeat the Stabilitrak is to pull the anti-lock fuse......and I don't want to do that. :(

Oh well, I have to find comfort in the fact that this is a full size family car, not a 2800 lb sports car and be happy with the extra straight line thrust it is capable of.

My other Pontiac will corner much better.
