21 is the magic number for insurance companies where turbo cars are concerned it seems. if there is anyone who is 20 which insurance company are you with? the cheapest i can find is 2500 annual.

Hang on... Been training advanced driving skills at Volkswagen and been test driver at Mercedes: 21 is far to young to drive a scooby ! :evil:

Apologies for expressing my opinion but I think kids don't understand you can indeed safely push these things very far, but when they bite... it's not a pepped up Beemer or Mondeo where you got time to read your newspaper before you perform a reaction according to the rulebook ! They should get people to pass a proper test to drive scoobs or Evo's. Will keep those nutcases from behind the wheel that can't handle them and give us a bad reputation.

Direct access course for a bike.... If you are under acertain age you cannot drive a bike over (i think) 600cc - bikers please correct me

Maybe this should be true for a car? but i guess this is opening a BIG debate... I for one (26 years old) have had some experience on full lock which almost took me into a truck.... thinking i was powering on to escape a problem it sort of took me the wrong way...... been driving since 17....

Tis a fair point, would like other to comment :shock:

I dont need to drive like a bat out of hell with the Scooby, I know its hugely fast but I dont race everyone that I see.

I like the car enough not to be driving it like a complete to$$er each time I get in it. Guys at work say, you've got a fast car, you should drive it like it.. I asked why.. They couldnt comment or I wasnt listening...

I'm coming up 25 this year (a little over a month and a few days) but I know when is best to use the power and when is not. I dont want to hurt anyone nor loose my licence just because someone calls me 'yellow' (Back To The Future?????) If I wanna go like a bat out of hell, I'll try a track day

My opinion, but people say I'm weird.. Maybe they are right!

Kinda agree, I've had a Citroen AX on full lock b4, but its nothing compared to losing the back end on a Scoob :P Only managed that once, thankfully!

Must say tho, if I'd have had this car when I passed my test, I'd have written it off no problems ops:

I'll drive mine, when I want to, but most of the time u only get corsa's n nova's that wanna have a go, thinkin they can beat ya, so I just let em now, aint worth it!

Saying that, was doing 110 up a B road at gone midnight last night chasing a motorbike :twisted:

I'll drive it when I WANNA :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

No point in showing off to/for other people, something might go wrong, cost so much to put right, its just never worth it!

I was out on my bike one night, heard a crash and someone had gone off the road and smashed right through a wooden fence and down into a bit of a ditch. Lucky for him and the passengers no one was hurt! I just couldnt believe it... Young bloke as well, trying to keep up with a small Fiat thingy... (begins with a C and I cant spell it! I think the guy had a Nova or something...) Unbelieveable...

I havent pushed it anywhere near as far as it can go.. Mind you, the gent that test drove mine made it do things I could only dream of!! It was amazing.. So fast but I was just so relaxed!! Awesome cars.. Wonder what its gonna be like with my new 6 speed box in it!! Hopefully, no knocking!!

I must admit to pushing mine a few times, nice gently slide round corners etc but I'd be mad to drive it like that 24/7 :P now if I tracked it..... :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

If anything I will only push her in a straight line as I still cant get over how fast that is!! wow... But I do know never to let off whilst going round a roundabout as that tends to make the car slide!! Never ideal! Especially when your not expecting it!! ops:

I like lifting off on roundabouts give it that bit of a twitch, specially when you've got a passenger
