So I was with my two driving buddies, 240sx miata and my car. We went up our normal route to the lookout, and decided since it has been raining lately we would skope the run out first. So we went down, and came back up. On the way up we saw a sick m3 coming down. We stopped at the top to wait for a bike and car that we saw coming up. Well it was the m3 following a bike, lol. When he got to the top he got out and was like, damn you guys were hauling ass on the way up...YUP that's how we do it.

We talked to the guy for a while and he thought it was awesome that I was using the 2002 for what it does best. We made a few runs and he took off. He is going to meet us up there agian tomorrow.

So all in all I had a nice saturday drive through my home course which I have not been on in a few months since I have been away at school.

Possibly going up there tonight...should be good fun (if it doesn't rain)

M3 was bran spanking new, so it was stock. He still had the plastic seat covers and floor mat covers. But it was SMG with the 19's. It was pretty nice, but he wasn't pushing it and didn't keep up with us.

I went again last night even tho it had rained in the after noon. Damn was it fun. The roads were completely clean; however, they were wet at sliperry. So even though I was not able to go too fast, I had so much fun slidding around getting the back end out. At the top I met a few guys that had been driving. One had a 240sx and another had a turbo charged toyota corola (RWD model). So I asked them if they wanted to go down and up. They agreed and I showed them why german technology is not something to be messed with. I pushed the whole way down, late braking causing the back end to swing out in most of the turns. It was one of the most controlled drives I have ever had. And by the time I got to the bottom they were at least 20-30 seconds back. On the way up I had the same results even though I had the underpowered car of that group.
I have grown to love the rain. It really helps separate driver skill from a good car. Since I was able to control my car much better than they were, they stood no chance even though their cars had much higher power levels, and many more suspension mods.

I am back from spring break for a week, so I am going to have plenty more driving stories in the next few days....wOOt

BaLLZacK has a little shameless behaviour in the past
What canyons do usually goto? Malibu? Las flores to piuma or stunt road? I also sometimes goto the ones in rolling hills off of Narbone st. If those are the ones, Im up there sometimes, might run into you would be cool to meet fellow member.
