    I get a little bit scared when entering a parking lot and see how narrow the entrance is. I never get scared on the road but some may get scared of me Sorry for posting in the 2nd generation discussion

    What Im gathering so far is you folks drive the R8 on the street like the track no big whoop. JK. Its too easy to get carried away IMHO... in fact restraint is the worst part about owning this car. I need to hit the track and squeeze it out of the system.

    If you don't feel a little "nervous" before going for a drive in your car, your car is boring so sell it and buy something that makes you "nervous".

    The R8 is not a hyper car so it will never scare me to drive it, what scares me is this.

    In all honesty I was only really scared of the minivan that was trying to keep up with me going 110 on the tollway this afternoon. I can deal with the tail breaking loose a bit here and there but there's no way your Honda minivan was built to maintain that speed......

    This will be my second high performance car. I have a 2016 Shelby GT350 that has definitely reminded me a couple of times that I need to respect it. I think with any car you have to remember to respect it, but you also just need to treat it like an extension of you.

    I've taken the Shelby to the track, and it's n absolute thrill to see how much the car is capable of. Realistically, though, I'm the limiting factor. I feel like we do this for the thrill, and on the roads we'll definitely open it up a bit, but I certainly come back down after a brief stint. I don't want to crash my baby! And you definitely can't tell what stupid thing others out there are going to do.

    Very well stated, sir. Modern cars limits are much higher than most drivers’

    Yes need to be careful about your surroundings but for some reasons almost all Mustang GT and shelby's I have encounter on the road are driven by these aggressive 20 year boys who want to race you and harass you.
