You can't talk shit like that until you provide a good source yourself....so far "I was there" sounds a lot more believable than "just trust me br0."

Care to share the details?

Believe what you want, bro. When it comes out (if the media releases it), then we will see whose source was correct.

When you're traveling in a car going X-km/hr and a car passes you within a certain time frame, it's not terribly difficult to guestimate it's speed.

"It was 200km/hr. Just trust me."

"I was there, it was 120-140"

"DO YOU HAVE PROOF???"

Good old classic rs incident thread escalation:
1. Rips start
2. One party is blamed
3. Insensitive comments about how you wish driver would die
4. Commenters get flak for their insensitive comments
5. Fight club
6. A bunch of 'trust me i know the aunt if the sister of the driver, i am a credible source' posts
7. Bullshitters get called out

That's where we are so far. Next stage is somehow blaming main landers for this. No matter the race of the driver, once we find out the race somehow that race will start getting shat on here

It depends. If you are going in the same direction as the car you are trying to measure, then you can use time as a possible indicator. But I doubt any joe blow will be doing that math in their head unless they are actually trying to get the speed of another vehicle ahead of time. Secondly, good luck doing that math with a car going in the opposite direction of you, unless you landmark a starting point and know how far that starting point is from you. So in conclusion, no it's not that easy, especially when drivers out there aren't randomly trying to estimate speeds with landmarks.

I never said I knew anyone in or related to someone in the collision. Like I said. just wait until the media reveals the results.

1 person in this thread actually has a legit sauce, so it's kinda lulzy watching him get attacked. The user probably won't reveal teir source because it will likely affect their job.

The rest of the people posting ITT are just speculating out their ass, such as myself hehehuehe

he's getting crap from others because he stated something with no source for confirmation. the only thing he's going to achieve by posting something with no source is that, if he's right, he gets to come back later and say "i was the first one to call it!". if he cant back up his claim, he might as well not have said anything to begin with. if his job is on the line, then he should also not be saying anything.

I never said you were lying. Whether you're right or not doesnt matter. The point is that, even if you're right, we STILL have to wait for confirmation of your statement from the media. if we have to wait anyway, since there's no source, your claim is entirely pointless.
