Ok Ok..... So some of you have guessed that the above title has been pinched from the movie Spiderman..
I am curious to know how many of you drivers out there, who have had either a big power jump from a small litre engined car like a 1.4 / 1.6 upto a 1.8 or 2.0, or those that are currently running powerful remaps, whether this extra power has gone to your HEAD and made you in some respects a bad driver.
Over the years I have always prided myself of being a courteous patient driver acknowledging the Drivers code like giving way, flashing to let people in at junctions during traffic etc. However, recently I have found that my patience with other road users has begun to dwindle (Not Good), especially when stuck behind drivers crawling at 25 / 30mph where the limit is considerably more. Or sometimes undertaking because the driver in the overtaking lane is crawling at 40mph on a 60mph stretch of road whilst cars in this lane disappear into the distance.
Whilst I don't drive around like a complete prat, I've got to be honest in saying I have started taking risks that perhaps I shouldn't, but know I can get away with due to the fact that my car is fairly powerful.
Has anyone else let power influence their better judgement?...
