I will try to get away with as many random speed bursts as possible before my wife gets pissed...probably won't take long

I was REALLY thinking about Babying this car and just driving like a Normal, scary, everyday driver.
I want to be like that random fool that every one has seen before...... you know, that weird looking guy that drives the Powerful Sports car down the street, but has never taken past 65mph. I want to be THAT guy.......just for a year or so............. It must feel amazing or something???? who knows?
I once saw an old lady driving a brand new WRX STi ( i mean OLD ass lady....looked like she was in her 70's)
Either a salesman tricked her into buying this special Impreza.......or she knew what it was and wanted to do some burn outs before she hits the hay!!! lol

I guess for this poll, most people are going to be very careful while driving and only accelerate quickly from stop lights! lol

I have been really thinking about this drift button........like will i try it more than once??????? I know i like to play on wet streets and you don't need a button for that..... Although i like burning rubber, I DON'T like buying new tires, ESPECIALLY these expensive ass tires on this car!!!! I thought the ST tires were expensive and then Ford worked out a deal with Michelin to break the record for most expensive tires on a FocuS! lol
Every time i press that drift button, i'm gonna be thinking about these tires..... -_- You got to pay to play, though!

You are permitted to shop aftermarket tires and save your Michelin's, but I get ya, I may buy a different set for play and save the $$ tires for track.

In the S2000 I rarely drift in dry/hot weather. If the roads are wet it acts as a lubricant and saves my back tires! (I still average 2 sets of rear tires for every front set, though) I'll probably do the same in the Focus, especially at first to get a feel for how it slides at lower speeds.
