    Sounds great! Really glad you enjoyed yourself! I want to go very badly, but none of the locations and times are going to work for Marty and I this year. Hopeful for next year, though!

    What were you driving? Neon? SRT4? That Jeep totally smoked you...but that's what these track experiences are for, to impart knowledge on those who haven't pushed the envelope before they take to the streets with a 707hp monster. I'm not dissin' you, if you haven't had this type of experience, hung it all out, across the envelope, then this is where you start...and I commend you for that. Get some seat time, get the "feel". Guess I take this stuff for granted...grew up in a small town, tiny, rural Oklahoma...learned to drift when I was 10...old farm truck, in a pasture...got my first motorcycle for my 6th birthday, an Indian... so I got the 'feel' early on. I thought this was the norm, but now I realize it's not...Maybe it's just my normal...

    Everyone needs track time if they haven't had it before...it takes time to get the 'feel'...where you and the car are one...where the tires reach their limit...and maybe yours.

    Congrats on your SRT Experience!! Keep it up!

    I'd rather see people being safe, rather than stupid on the street. Get your seat time in. Push it hard, mess up, learn, then become a better equipped individual!
    Good for you!

    I did the SRT track experience back in '08 when I got my Challenger First Edition SRT. I did it at Daytona Speedway and it was a blast. Part of it was on a portion of the Rolex 24 course. When I was in the 300 SRT the instructor in the car ahead of me couldn't lose me. They gave me two more laps and I stayed on the instructor's ass the whole way. When it was over, they gave me one of their instructor shirts. I'm really looking forward to it again when my Charger HC gets here.

    I don't think I could have passed the instructor in the 300 ahead of me but he couldn't get away. We were supposed to stay back 3 car lengths but I got much closer several times. So there I was in the hairpin, sitting in a big leather seat, right foot on the floor, 4-wheel slide in the turn, on the instructor's ass and the air conditioner blowing in my face. Life doesn't get better than that.
