    How about just people in general. Seems to me once they go out in public, a switch goes off and turns them into instant a-holes.

    Our neighbor who's 27 brushed his windshield off and drove off. I'm 60 and went and cleaned both cars off. At least down to the ice. I left my truck alone though. I didn't want to pull a groin.
    Most people just listen to music and watch movies. I EXPERIENCE them.

    It's the "Gotta be first" syndrome. Happens here a lot too and I find it ilarious when someone in a subcompact car cuts me off in my half ton...seriously...you think I'm gonna stop a 20 year old 4,700Lb truck on a dime? HAH!

    That car would have all its valve cores removed. Takes about 45 seconds.

    I keep a valve stem tool -- handy.

    YEP. You take the guts out and then they go to fill it up and then they laugh. Easy fix so not too hurt $$ wise for a lesson learned.

    Happens all over. Lost count of the d bags that would speed up to get around you, cut you off, then brake hard...and your in a fully loaded 6 wheeler or semi dump. Sad part is, here in my state anyway , it's always the trucks fault.

    I know the IDIOT who cuts in front to save a few seconds scenario soooo well.

    I used to have 35,000 or 45,000 lbs. on my Boom truck all the time over 15 years. Fully loaded to the max and then some, a few times. It's a given somebody will do what you said. As soon as an idiot got into my percieved braking distance, I'd have to back off the gas to save THEIR LIVES. And they didn't even know it. Ungrateful idiots didn't even wave thank you.

    I old guy did a U-TURN in the highway off of a side street. The guys in my cab were freekin out and preparing for us in my boom truck to go right over him broad side. I was empty but he didn't stand a chance of living if I hit him . I quickly looked in my side mirror and saw a lot of space and I Immediately turned to the left to avoid him and I looked at the turning lane next. Nobody coming at us so to left more we went. We missed him by a few feet. I don't think he ever saw my Boom Truck. The three guys said that was the BEST DRIVIMG THEY HAD EVER SEEN. All thre..LOL. I even got the fist bumps!

    I know of a man who didn't make it when he pulled out in front of a guy I know trucking Co.. The driver had to take a month or two off to finally calm down from that scene.

    I have a buddy who had five older brothers. The oldest one made my buddy when he was a little kid sit at his feet and crack pistachios for him. The older brother would watch TV while my buddy would crack them open until the older brother had his fill. If he didn’t crack them fast enough the older brother’d smack him one. Even worse was if he’d give the older brother one of those putrid tasting rotten ones.

    People that do this to their cars. There's literally no benefit to this much negative camber. It both looks stupid and ruins performance in every imaginable category.

    I'm going to go out on a limb and suggest that the rear downforce provided by that spoiler on a front-wheel-drive car has a similar scarcity of benefit to be derived from it's application thusly.

    There has to be some benefit to lateral G's and braking distance from high speed. All of the FWD touring cars (BTCC, WTCC, etc.) all have rear spoilers. Also, I'm not too familiar with VW's, is that an R32? It might be AWD.

    On the car in your image, sure. On Alphonso McCheeseforbrains' car? Highly doubtful.
