While that car is insanely fast, the run itself was pretty sloppy.

I know its easy to judge from the safety of my computer desk, but I cant help but feel like I could do better with a few months experience in the car.

I think if you are driving a car of that caliber at 100% it is going to be a little sloppy, plus it looks like the road surface is a little rough.

I think the video is sped up maybe just +1. I've seen video of VERY fast cars, and they don't seem as fast on video as they truly are. I think he took some liberty with this video.

I could be wrong.
