    School Zone Street Racer 101. I thought the course was pretty good. Taught me the fundamentals of the "gangsta lean", the flat-brim, hellaflush, and the obnoxiously loud stereo rattling my car. Apparently, in SZSR102, they teach you how to drive into puddles and ghost ride. I'm signed up for next month's offering.

    Thanx - me too... But his response wasn't too bad until he edited it.

    I'm actually serious about the question, but I like sarcasm almost just as much. Just kinda hard for new readers to the thread to provide a serious answer when the first one is like that!

    That's exactly the one I was looking at... I'll be in Seattle some time in August; maybe the dates will line up and do the 3-hour or the 1/2 day.

    I don't know if there's a thread that's safe from this any more... Poor Drews.
