Yes, track is recommended but I understand not everyone has access to. Nothing feels better than a quick, safe run at a near-by canyon roads with some nice music. Music for the video did suck though. By the way, don't ever turn or pull 360 at a canyon road when you have corner right next to you. That is so damn dangerous unless you can clearly see both sides of the road without the corner interfering you. Why did the cop pull you over anyway? Did you drive like an idiot that is excluded in the video?
I wasn't pulled over (that was a joke, to make the video more interesting to my facebook friends), we waited for the guy in the swift. He fell about 1.5 min behind the scion (and me behind it).

You drive like your 18...... crossed the yellow line way too many times and you need to work on your turn-in. But you are 18 so keep up the good work and be careful.

i only crossed the yellow line once when i under-steered near the bridge.
The camera is a wide angle, and was placed in the center of the car, so it looks like the car is wider than it was. The other guys did cross the yellow lines multiple times though, but nothing too dangerous imo

there should be a DIY for signing up for a track event. this canyon run is 15 min from my school, and costs me nothing but 4 gallons of gas and some brakes.
I imagine at a track event, i would be driving the car much harder, and i would by no means get an hour's worth of driving.

my friend asked me to go to a track once; it was a drag strip, and i didn't feel like driving an hour (and an hour back) out to a track, just to fork over $25, to drive my automatic car up to a hundred miles an hour, in 13-14 seconds.

i cant tell if you're being sarcastic. if you're serious, im not going to spend more than an hour editing a home video, its not worth the effort
