Yeahh heyy... so here are mine:




Here's the key:

* - It was on a beach, private property, cousin's 4WD Mitsubishi Pajero
*2 - Oil change light... not really a warning light, because I forgot to reset the sensor on the previous oil change.
*3 - No heated seats in my car
*4 - It was a van :lol:
*5 - Always prepare and rolled down the windows first
*6 - Don't smoke, and don't allow smoking in the car
*7 - I had the hunch, but proceeded, with caution, but still managed to get into a crash.
*8 - A little friendly nudge, because he was acting like a douche :p. No damage to either cars.
*9 - Do Rickshaws count?

Also, I've done the exact opposite of Balls of Steel as well, i.e. drive a car on winter tyres throughout the year.

I have:
  • Drive while drunk - sort of, I usually go by bike then and I'm not really drunk, but over the allowed amount for driving a car
  • Traffic Light Grand Prix
  • No problem - had a faulty ABS throughout one winter
  • Friction Burn
  • So Ronery
  • Broalition
  • The Suffering
  • Some Slip
  • Neeeeel!?
  • Initial D - I prefer doing that in non-motorized vehicles, though
  • Sign Of Weakness
  • No Guts, No Glory
  • Bronx Five-Oh
  • Harmless When Armless - doing that regularly while changing glasses from normal to sunglasses
  • Lead Foot - and I didn't even need the Autobahn for that
  • Killing My Darlings
  • Inevitable
  • Godlike
  • Gearhead - well, changing the tyres (winter/summer)
  • Final Destination
  • ?????? (car will not start) - yes that happened to me
  • Complete Control - not at the same time though ;)
  • Grindhouse - way more than ten and I was done in about 1 second
That makes 23.

I nearly achieved "Precision" once - drove around for half an hour in the night before finding a fuel station still open, and filled up my 70 litre tank with 73.5 litres then.

Well I can?t be bothered to start any picture editing program at the moment, and I?m also not very proud of some of the stuff I did in my early years (and therefore refuse to offer any kind of explanation), but there are only 6 things on that list that I haven?t done to some extent or in some similar form.

Who stops at every stop sign? To me it?s just an indicator that I need to be extra careful giving right of way at this particular intersection.

The 60mph over one was quite hard to achieve and happened on the Autobahn. Went flatout with the A6 on an unrestricted part of the Autobahn and saw the signs fly by: 120 100 80 60 (I was still doing ~175km/h at the last sign because it happened quite quickly :D)
Happens to me all the time. If I?m driving along at top speed and I see a limit sign I mostly just let go of the accelerator and let air resistance do the braking. If there is no additional warning sign it?s not even illegal as far as I know. But then again I also put my foot down as soon as I see the white circle with the black stripes at the horizon so maybe I?m just a bad person or something.

I also spent 3 weeks driving on summer tires in what was allegedly the spring of 2010. In Bavaria. But that was because one of my winter tires became the victim of some idiot?s exhaust lying around on the autobahn.

Haha this should be good ...

Friction Burn - Almost every time I drive. :D
So Ronery - No passenger seatbelt in my Fairmont.

Long Distance Carrier
Broalition - 7 people in a Pontiac Grand Am.
The Suffering
Some Slip
So Mashed - High school.
Sign of Weakness
12 Pack - Almost all my cars have had 6 or 8 cylinders.
Zyklon B - With the window locks on, no less!

That's 32, I think.

TLGP: Yep. It was against my friend. I beat a Daewoo Lanos. WOOO!! :lol:
FB: Loose gravel = once on purpose to see if I could (in my car), once by accident (almost crashed my dad's old SAAB).
Suffering, Slip & KMD : More than once when I was first learning stick... :-(
SofW: According to my mum, I do this far too often. If it's another 'P' plater I rarely catch them again, however. :lol:
HWA: Did this a few times driving auto trans cars.
Godlike: Yep, I passed both my automatic and manual driving tests on the first try. (I had a lot of lessons when I was learning stick, though and had problems I've already mentioned!).

Narrowly averted Inevitable while in my dad's car thanks to attempting Complete Control and generally driving like a douchebag on a road I didn't know well. Slid in loose gravel on the side of the road just missing a guardrail and a ditch. I was completely on the wrong side of the road on a blind corner for a few seconds - that could have all gone so badly. Stupidest thing I've ever done. :mad: @ self.

My best Grindhouse Score = four rabbits in one night (in mum's car).

I would like to point out the lack of any sexual activity beyond fapping on this list. There are probably another dozen achievements right there.

11. I'll take it.

Friction Burn - Most memerable time was in my RX8 going around a corner a bit too fast (I mashed the gas like a retard and damn near spun the thing. Was fun, but stupid to do... but I was trying to get out before traffic was coming).

The Suffering - First time driving a manual, obviously that is going to happen.

Some Slip - Oh hell yeah. :/

Sign of Weakness - All the time on the highway.

Retard - Yeah, I owned an RX8

Zyklon B - Everyone does it.

No Guts, No Glory - Parking lots count.

Bronx Five-Oh - Only twice. Sucked both times.

Killing My Darlings - First time driving a manual. I still do it on occasion when I'm not paying attention.

Godlike - :D

Endurance Run - Philadelphia, PA to Orlando, FL in one sitting.
