Andy-UK said:You've got it all wrong. The fact is he wins because the car doesn't go that fast and looks pretty ordinary. Think about it:
Lonman et al are doing 180mph in outrageous sports cars the cops jump all over the first 10 cars and pull them over for a few hours. This means that Kimble can cruise past and just keep going.
If your a police officer a Mercedes CL doing 150mph on the road is nothing compared to a gang of Ferraris and Porsche's doing 190mph.
It's a classic example of the hare and the turtle. Doing the rally in something half fast and relatively "plain looking" works out faster in the long run. Look at the diesel 3 Series. Not nearly as fast as some of the cars on the rally but it's able to do a decent speed constantly for a longer time and go unnoticed.
Kimb;e makes it first because.Slope said:Very true, I did the Cannonball in a standard Saab Turbo last year and we were arriving at the checkpoints in the top 15 -20, beating cars that were a lot faster than ours,
1. We didn't get lost!
2. We didn't get stopped as many times as everyone else.
3. We didn't have to fill up as many times as the more powerful cars.
It's amazing how far you can travel in the time it takes to fill a tank!
1. I am the greatest driver out there.n-n-n-n said:I've seen his car - isn't the fastest and I am guessing he isn't the greatest driver out of everyone there. What gives him the edge?
Hmmm...Kimble said:1. I am the greatest driver out there.
2. I dont like to lose and I am a natural born winner.
3. All the greatest drivers on this planet are related to my genpool.
4. When I was 5 years old I was hit by thunder and since then my selfconfidence is 5875% above average.
5. When I was 12 old I joined the childrens army of disney and in my search for bambi I had sex with the wizard of OZ who gave me "brain V3.0" which makes me superior over all of you, you little scumbags.
6. When I was 16 years old I was obducted by aliens and geneticly modified so my body would have the perfect shape to fill that Benz seat.
7. I am the King of the Kimpire. I own you all.
8. I am the greatest driver out there.
9. I watched colt sievers, captain future and mac guyver. They teached me how to solve any problem.
10. I am the greatest driver out there.
10 - 100. I am the greatest driver out there.
May the flamewar begin
Unlucky for you that was a long time ago, when you were 16 years old. :hihi:Kimble said:6. When I was 16 years old I was obducted by aliens and geneticly modified so my body would have the perfect shape to fill that Benz seat.
