Okay.. You can hurt yourself and anyone else in any kind of car. From a Prius to a sports car. Just because it's not a sports car doesn't mean they won't drive fast and do stupid things. So it doesn't matter what kind of car someone has Or how much power it has when it comes to responsibility.

I want to go on the record as saying this: my naturally aspirated(not Turbo) 4cyl fox has had me in a couple of sketchy situations, both were a slight loss of control, no damage to anything. So saying a 4 cyl car is safer I don't necessarily agree with, unless it's some old lady car or something like that.

I was doing a little wet road drifting in both situations.

Just please be careful drivers guys!

I'm just saying, let me put this situation out there: imagine yourself 16 again driving around with a 400 hp mustang. Along comes an Evo that wants to race. He's saying all this bs about how much faster his car is, and starts speeding up and slowing down, speeding up, slowing down. As a 16 year old, you are far more tempted to say, hey I bet my car can beat it when you're in a 400 hp car rather than a 150 hp car. I'm just saying, at 16, teens are way more tempted to race. Even at say, 20-22 the temptations diminish. Yes, there are still times that the temptations there, but A. You'd be more experienced and B. you'll have a greater chance of saying its not worth it. If you have a brand new mustang and are 16, great, more power to you. I'm just saying if I were a parent, I would never let my kid near a car that made anything over 200 hp for at least the first 3-4 years of driving. I'm not trying to bash anyone or cause any hate, it's just I would hate to see someone so young let their hormones get the best of them when behind the wheel of a 400 hp mustang.

so your saying if the 16 year old kid had a 160 hp civic he wouldn't be tempted to race?? Don't kid yourself kids race trucks, ricers, SUVs everything. If I had a teenage kid I would get him whatever I could afford and liked for him but I would also probably take him to the drag strip and let him race there that way it's safer... I also would set boundaries just like my dad did... I was told that if I was in a wreck or got a ticket the car was gone...I didn't get my first ticket till I was 22. My first (and only) wreck was a minor fender bender that wasn't my fault... IMHO it comes down to the raising of the kids.

A kid with a 160hp civic wouldnt attempt to race a person in a 400hp mustang or EVO because they both would beat it and more and bout everyone knows that

Get the kid something that in an accident will protect him, a truck would be good. Slow, heavy, durable, hard to break tires loose. Learn to drive in that then go to a sports car

Suv is better. More weight over the rear tires. I know on easy acceleration my f150 would slide the rear occasionally. It also comes down to having good tires also. My mothers Lincoln navigator had bald tires and while I was driving it it hydroplaned a little but I got it corrected. So if you're impeding that a newer car is safer, you could buy an older car and make sure it has good brakes, tires, fluids, electronics, ect and it would provide that safety factor.

One that works and knows what he or she is doing to a vehicle to improve performance would be able to add power easily. Im 18, paid 10500 for my Cadillac cts, and after building it (ls2 swap) [I used to have a built gt] it will have around 500 horses and 485 tq for about 5500 (ive gotten hook ups ect to habe it so low [engine, trans, suspension, brakes, exhaust, minor exterior, full 700 hp clutch and light weight flywheel, and some engine detailing]). Saying a teen couldn't afford power is an invalid statement.

Godsdeciple you'll see it eventually if you still meet up at the Starbucks meets

Really on the truck? I guess my truck was super slow then because I could never get the tires to even chirp unless I was in the rain hitting it through a turn

I think it's just the sixxers that get a 120 limit. I know my GT has seen over that at least once before the tune.
