But oh what an engine - running slicks, coming out of corners at about 60, when you floor it the back tires immediately light up and the rear end starts hopping around. And that glorious monster engine sound It was great, if you're looking for a change of pace I thoroughly recommend it!

To bad you couldn't drive a car setup for one of the road courses like Watkins Glen or Sears Point (or whatever they call it now) completely different feel.

I bet you had a blast...
