I like THill except for that stupid Cylcone thing - totally ruins the flow of the track IMO. Best lap was a high 2:07 on my old F4i.

thanks guys.
im so hooked on this track riding its killing me, cuz i can't afford it...

well, its the hidden costs that screw you. i can afford registration for the track day. its the tires/gas (for the bike and the truck) and all the extra lil things.

i probably spent over 600-700 on this whole thing when said and done...wow..now that i think about that...fuck thats alot of money

well worth it i guess tho
