    first time attack

    i finally went to a track for the first time and wow do i have much to learn lol. i went to adams motorsports park in riverside, its a pretty short track and we ran on the drifting configuration. my first 2 runs were pretty sad at 1:00.5 and 0:57.5 but i got more comfortable as it went on and got 0:56.8 and 0:54.5 on the last two. i dont think i did too horrible for my first time. i was in the middle of the pack on my last run, but then a beastly evo came and got like 46 seconds on his first try lol. at least i didnt crash or spin out like a few people did haha

    but if you have never tracked your car it is insanely fun, and a tad scary too lol. im definately gonna do this more, and hopefully get better lol

    That is just cool that you are getting out there and doing it. It is a learning curve, and is much more about the marriage between the driver and the car than just a big and fast car. Keep on learning.

    yea you can say that again lol, i felt the same way i did when i drove a car for the first time. its such a different feeling than just driving on the road.

    i think part of my problem was fear of pushing to hard (probably more of a good thing than a bad thing tho). when i talked to the people watching they said i was the slowest going into the corners but one of the fastest coming out

    It's just practice my friend! I'm glad you tried it though.
