This has been discussed time and time again here, but I'll go through it again.

It's very simple. The staff and owner of the forum simply do not condone the bypass of a safety feature that has been implemented by the manufacturer. Watching video will driving is an obvious safety risk to both the driver and everyone else on the road......and quite frankly, G35Driver wants no part of it. Simple as that. Any threads discussing this topic will be deleted.

Whether you agree with the decision or not is quite irrelevant, no further discussion here will change the staff's decision. So if you have any additional comments on this feel free to PM a me or one of the other moderators.
