OK, know nothing about this. How do they change the tires so fast? How are they attached?

There is a center nut design, and interlocking pins on the hub to allow the wheel to mesh into to transfer driving force to the wheel. Allows for lightning fast tire changes.

What's the quickest car you ever drove? Mine was a '69 dodge charger with a Keith Black blue printed engine. It was like some from another world!!!!!

Quickest as in 0-60 time, cornering speed, or just general?

To me, the quickest car I've driven in general has to be a Scoobaru WRX hatchback thing.

Fastest 0-60 was a 2012 Mustang GT 5.0.

Thanks for the explanation. Pretty cool.

I drove my girlfriend's dad's M3. Not super impressive, but it was more than enough car for me. That and an old porsche. M3 was MUCH more fun. Fast, but crazy cornering.

I can honestly say I've never been in any car at what I consider really high speeds, like +120mph. I'm not a NASCAR fan, but I do like watching drag racing and Formula One races.

I feel I might have a disadvantage being a Lot Porter at a Toyota dealer, I've driven most commonly available cars

Not so much, perhaps, as the lot porter at the Yugo dealership!
