    1st track day w/ cup cars as company - pics / vid

    Went to my first track day in the GT3 @ Steets of Willow. Car felt great much more stable than my previous car e92 m3. I went with a friend who races w/ Competition Motorsport. He has a gt3 cup car as seen below and races in the Peytron series. Was great getting to work with some pros...gave me lots of pointers and has him drive my car to see what it was really capable of. Took some getting use to, the different driving dynamics of the porsche, getting the front to turn in and having the car rotate. Hit a bump on the chicane pretty hard, next lap felt like i was going to understeer off, tried to get front to go, but i was a mess so i just drove straight off, hear its better to do this. Took a rest after came back and tire was flat so i had to flat bed it back. Day started at 8am this occured at 11am...but it was only 2 of us on the track so i got some decent time in.

    Also took off Europipe and put SW center delete back on. I got in my car and it sounded so quiet...I had a friend do a few drive bys before taking it off so I could hear it from the outside...and WOW, never heard anything sound so good...but felt bad for all the now deaf people in Beverly hills, was too paranoid, felt like cops were out for me w/ it. But no question, a best buy. The SW sounds amazing as well, but like stock you only really head it around 4k and on...but pretty sound to say the least. Both are great pieces.

    Competition Motorsports. 1st Giant Picture!!!!!!! lol

    im actually not a huge fan of streets but was great for practicing heel toeing, first time driving stick on a track...i actually loved it...was fun, more to do...shifts were pretty good, messed up a couple times but fun coming from the dct. I dont like that willow springs has the pretty big rocks when u go off...scratches car easily...want to go to buttonwillow asap...much prefer that track.

    ^ What about big willow? I haven't done the big track yet.

    Buttonwillow is usually regarded as a better track. Streets just does not seem too safe as you alluded to.
