How does tht work for those who want to drive? I can map out a route that hits most of the good roads in one fell swoop. Of course, we can hit others if we so choose. Combination of tight twisties and more open roads to stretch our legs. All with beautiful scenery and cool air.
Sounds good to me. Let me know if you if choose smooth or bumpy roads

Probably best. Some of the roads are high camber with random dips. Not bumpy, but would rip that thing right off.

I haven't. Would you mind linking a map of the area? Need to venture further out, one of these days.

Red Bluff is nice, the trip will consume your whole day though. Been out there a few times on my bike and the trip to and from can be boring as hell but the actual road is fun!

To make the whole trip fun you have to take backroads all the way up (and back preferably) but that will eat a whole day to do.

It can lap Nola MS Park 2.75 mile track in less than two minutes with 230rwhp. It does the short track in the 1:24 range on street tires

To put it in perspective a 458 Italia on Pilot Super Sports is a mid/high 1:50's car on the 2.75 mile track

Grant is still a beginner intermediate but he will get it there soon. he has a steep learning curve

I'm a big dig/ highway racer, partially because I just like big hp and fast races, I never keep close minded when it comes to other types of races, auto crossing seems to be fun as shit, maybe down the line if I ever decide on another sports car it'll prolly be a GTR an set that up for auto crossing that's in my perfect world, to have an m6 twin charged, a cl65 for crusing, my 300zx that I'm currently building that I haven't told any of you about, and a gtr for auto crossing but again that's in my perfect world, ill End up just having a cl65 an m6 and my 300zx. I can't wait till its done, who's going to tx2k13? That's highway racing dreams there

You'd probably want something a bit smaller for competitive autocrossing than a GTR. Personally if I got a GTR it would be for HDPEs (and if I won the lotto I'd fully deck one out for amateur racing!). If you can't stretch its legs and take full advantage of the electronics package then to me it's kinda a waste.

I'm a pretty big fan of the 1/2 mile and mile stuff. I am for all types of racing that's mostly safe.
A blown M6 would be amazing. Check out Beemer Boooooost.com (I spelled it wrong intentionally because it'll ***** out but it's Bimmer.....boost...com). They just released the Gintani Supercharger for the M5 and M6, the first 5 cars get a special price and free install. 600rwhp for $13,500.

The only problem with autocrossing a GTR is it might not fit on the course and all the Miata's, E30's, Sentra SER's and hatch back Honda's are going to smoke you silly with 140hp. Ask me how I know, I use to run one competitively with a friend!!
