*If you can, play these in HD. They look much better*
Just thought I'd share these with the world. The first set is from almost two months ago. In those I was running Hankook Ventus V12 Evo's in the rear and Nexen 3000's in the front. (255 and 235). No ABS sucks btw.

This one is from this Saturday. I have been out of town for a month, so I let a friend take my car. This is the only video they got from the day. In this video I'm running Falken Azenis RT615's (255 and 225). My friend said it still had pretty bad understeer, but I'm making a few more improvements when I get back, so we'll see if it gets any better.

I'll have more video in a couple weeks as there is an event on the 29th. Hopefully I'll have time for a track day before I go back to California in September too.

Anyway, hope you enjoy. I got an in car mount so hopefully the coming video will be much better. Or at least as good as it can get with a flip camera. I want a gopro, but they're so expensive.... /blabbering

looks like it was a ton of fun...

I will be going to the streets of willow pretty soon, but these damn track days add up so much (tires, brakes, entry, etc) it could easily come to a $750 day cost.

That was classic!

Announcer chick: "It has a rather unique engine, so I hear..."

Other chick:" Yeah it does"

Its really nice to see some one doing this with our cars. Or maybe the elitists here scare away those that do this stuff.

This makes me really wanna beat on my car. Too bad she doesn't like the weak clutch I gave her. I'll have to go on a road trip this weekend after I put in the new clutch to break it in, and then straight to some beatery and let it rip.

The problem is that you have to be skilled. Thats why it sucks for me.

^^I'd gladly take your ABS off your hands haha. But 4 piston front with stock rear brakes doesn't help at all. I'm putting grippy pads and new rotors in the rear soon so we'll see if that makes the braking a bit more balanced.

I'm just saying that the front brakes lock up pretty easily now. The bias has changed noticably toward the front. I'm hoping better pads in the rear will help the bias shift rearward a little.
