There's usually one near a McDonalds near Six Flags, but I think that group is going on Saturday.

From my first track day, I learned to take it easy. Just get the lines down first then worry about speed later. HF!

Had a blast today! Tossing the car around made it extra fun.

Good putting face to the screen name, yyoo! And, nice meeting you FR01! Both of you guys made long drives from NorCal.

We missed you James!

SV should now be called Extreme SV, lulz (I think over 100 cars were there today).

A little video from today. Hope you had fun FR01.

It was nice meeting everyone today. What a fun day!!
I heard that James is practicing in Nurburgring at the moment that's why we haven't seen him in a month.

You guys took the M3 up? How was it out there? I remember you guys were having some trouble finding traction thanks to your supercharger at Autoclub.

Thanks for the ride, loved the setup you have. Great meeting you and Young. Hope to see you guys at another event soon (after I get tires and brakes).

It was great meeting OC3, FR01, Jameson, Dave (?), Div (?) for the first time and LateBraking and wwjd15 again.

Had a blast though I had handling issues all weekend. I couldn't seem to get the power down coming out of corners so I asked our resident hot shoe, wwjd15, to take it for a spin. He confirmed that that the car was too tail-happy. Too tail happy by Ricky standards...is that possible?!

He also diagnosed air in my brakes (my first time on Brembos so I assumed that that's how they normally felt) and a tendency for my car to pull to the left after the tires got good and hot. I'm very glad he caught these issues as I can now get them addressed before doing Laguna Seca next week.

In a day or two I'll post my impressions sitting shotgun as Ricky drove my car and also report on the first time I tried MDM at the track...and didn't like it.
