    About the same thing one could say about Corvette drivers ...

    Seems being an unskilled dick is brand agnostic o_O

    One video shows a ton of people being dicks on the road. Most in the wet.

    The other is a random video where you are assuming because the guy has a corvette that he's in the wrong with no info on the accident itself. From where I'm from 4wd owners cause most angst on the road. Most are used to pick up the kids from school with their size used as ignorance.

    The driving excellence in most of these videos is primarily caused by people learning to drive in vehicles that have all of the new driver safety aids. Switch them off, and they don’t know how to drive!

    ^ Yep. And some of them will no doubt be getting a Darwin Award posted to their last place of abode.

    In the first event filmed, it looks like the left rear wheel just came off. Obviously not the driver's fault at all.

    Mustang prangs explained.....
    a. The steering wheel is on the wrong side.
    b. Too much power, outdated suspension, crap tyres = too little grip.
    c. Look at me ………. I have a 'Stang …..… oops, I don't have any talent.

    Yes the left rear wheel comes off and the fact it occurred on what seems to be a race track didn’t escape me either. Was it the drivers fault, almost certainly not, his mechanic, maybe.

    But the second event did show poor driver capabilities as the driver lost control on a simple right hand turn. And the main event is obviously speculative as to what actually happened. However, being the first corvette c8 crash was interesting enough to post. And in another video of this C8 crash, which I couldn’t locate on youtube, the pics looked like he clipped a SUV.

    In any case, the point of my post was to highlight that poor driving skill are likely equally distributed across all manufacturers, or brand agnostic as I said.

    Possibly true but the previous generation of Mustang has a really poor rear suspension design that tends to make the car swap ends far to easily.

    Come on guys... in the good ol' USA we have no corners. Our cars are designed to take off fast on a straight line. Brakes, what is that for? That is some crap to slow you down :D

    Have you ever watched the old model Mustang go down a drag strip? Axle tramp in the burnout box is attrocious, I'm surprised the axles stay attached to the chassis....

    Plenty of under skilled drivers are taking control of powerful cars , the ability of the driver is paramount

    I liked your post, it was very accurate. It would have been even more appropriate if either of your currently nominated drives had been in the "powerful" category (LOL).

    Guys, was a sarcasm on the general notion that US cars cannot handle worth a damn.

    Now come on, don't sell yourself short like that. From what I hear, that ol' Chevy SS that recently went out of production went around corners just fine ;)
