It was awesome, we took the backroads to Napa, HWY128/121. I accomplished my mission to kill the tread on my tires. I was frustrated by the few muscle cars I was following, once we hit the twisties they couldn't hang. Drove mostly with the traction control off so I could feel the rear swinging out in some instances with a satisfying tire squeal. Did you check out the link I posted? Great drive, can't wait till the next one.

I've read that on the V1's & ST's they ride pretty stock like. That is until you hit the corners. Body roll is greatly reduced supposedly, which is what I am looking for. Along with getting rid of the horribly bouncy stock setup.

I was actually planning on going to it as well. A few buddies of my friends are hoping to join me if they can get their cars at 100% by the 23'rd. $35 is a pretty good price, especially considering you don't need to buy the yearly licence fee that most other places want. (Atleast, thats how I read it on the fb event page).

Heres a FB link for those interested: https://www.facebook.com/events/463986350326745/

For auto crossing

Yes you can go there and watch. But it's pretty boring. Lol. It's pretty fun to run your car somewhere safe. It's not about how much power your car puts down to get a good time. It's about knowing and learning your car.

Just join the FB Page. All the info is there. I few of my friends are going for sure as am I.

James, the 335 is a handful. It's like the old saying "Power is nothing without control"... Miatas do very well out there and most of them there is very little engine work... I spun out on my 3rd run because I floored it too early.. LOL...
