don't know of many judges that will side with you here
Every Judge would say and agree with him, "luck of draw"
He has 0 liability! Period.

I have some young guys working for me 21-30 and there is one common denominator, EVERY-TIME they get a new car be it a used $5000 car or a new $53,000 car first thing they do is get out there and smoke them up, not once but I have seen 30 minutes worth, even with the expensive new one mentioned.
Of course they think I'm an idiot because, 3000 miles on a year old vette and I can't say if it will smoke the tires, guess I'm too cheap to buy new tires for it.

Yep, someone missed a gear, end of story!
