Hellz yeah. Driving on & off the track in the comfortable Novillo leather seat, A/C, Bluetooth, come on!

My current tow vehicle is a 2007 Ram 1500 hemi and she sits in my driveway all month long until i need it to tow the track car which is basically money sitting in my driveway plus im paying insurance for something i dont drive. My fr-s is not streetable its loud, caged, stiff, and brakes squeal because race car. Since im selling that car and the m3 is street/track i really dont need a trailer so shes up for sale. This is why i need to find a simpler solution to get to and back from the track.

If anybody is interested in my trailer its up for sale:

I can relate.
There's also something nice about passing dedicated track cars in your street car.

For sure. I like passing cars I shouldn't be faster than. R8s, 458s, gt3, gtr, ususally is the case of slightly lesser driver though that is making the difference. I will have to add some more power before I get a trailer so I don't feel like an asshat getting passed.

lol!

Why stop at only tools and tires? Why not bring the family and the kitchen sink?!

I'll just leave this here to spur further discussion:
