Car: 2009 M3
Mods: On the youtube link
Notes: Very cool day around 50-60 degrees outside.

That's a long way to travel to drive the worst track in SOCAL.

It was fun for me... Big Willow is a pretty fast track and the Streets of Willow wasn't as fast but seemed more technical. The banked turns and elevation changes made things better..... The tracks in the Houston are mostly flat. with some turns being off camber to make things interesting. Why do you say its the worst track? Im guessing its the run offs aren't too low car friendly?

Nice gauges! Cough cough lol

You need to insert a couple black circles behind them but change the transparency so it'll still be a bit see through but will be black when it's turning full clear.

Great driving.

Yeah for sure!!!! I think I might fly there next time and I'll just pay for a car transport. The drive is brutal, took 14hrs getting out of Texas.

I'm not a fan of Big Willow either. Maybe if they ever repave it but that seems unlikely. My only goal for Big Willow is to go sub 1:30, which I convincingly did, so I have nothing left to prove there.

As for Streets, it's really better suited for smaller, lighter cars with great turn in and minimal understeer. The surface is crap and covered in crap and there are a few super dangerous areas where cars have a tendency to flip.
