That's like saying guns are unsafe. The person holding the gun makes it safe or not. Having driven my car on the dragon I can say it's totally unsafe in the hands of someone who can't handle it. (doesn't know what they are doing) other than that, it was awesome. The car wasn't even set up for that. Suspension and tires. Etc. I can only imagine what that woulda been like. Shiiiiiit.

The owner /builder / designer of this car has several decades of experience with all manner of high performance cars including several group B rally machines. He took this one from stock and modified it over several years so its not like he jumped into it all at once . We both moved to CA in the late 70s which adds up to over 30 years on these same roads so local knowledge is very high. Watch the video , he follows our golden rule of no crossing the double yellow as well as knowing where and when to run and never at 10 /10ths .
