People who sit on the rev limiter piss me off, it sounds like shit. Its not hard to modulate the throttle, even worse is people sitting on the rev limiter when doing a burnout.

ovals are kinda scary. the back end of the car travels towards the wall slowly, so you think you wanna lift, but if you do the car may snap back and throw you face first into the wall.

crap i cant find the picture of my car about 1 foot from the wall face first. luckily i didnt hit it. here are some crappy random ones back when i was m42 powered.

that is the absolute crappiest track we have. its called rockford speedway.

our baller tracks are road america, and USAIR both is WI. this season we are going to gateway international raceway in STL. there are more like Dells raceway and lacrosse fairgrounds speedway but there not as baller. The midwest gets the sickest tracks, no parking lot events anymore.

I am probably going to be going down to road america the weekend of the 18th to meet another guy for something. That's a great track. i am going to try and make it there this year too for the Brickyard Races. It would be super awesome if we could get a bunch of e30s together for that!
