I don't like your personal opinion and i'm going to personally attack you for it. ARRRRRRRR!!!!!

:hehe: :hehe:

I don't personally think that quarter mile is stupid, it still takes a lot of skill. But i will agree that road course is much better... i just wish i had a semi-capable car running so i could get into stuff like that.

Hater!

but anyways, I wish it was nice out here that we could run all year long... must be nice :(. Well just out of curiosity how much is it to run the course? DO you have to have an instructor with you in the passenger seat? And do you get actual times?

There are two sessions - 8am-noon or 1-5pm. Either way, to run one session is 30 dollars. OR.. if you want to go all day, you can get a package deal for 50 bucks. No instructor, but your car has to pass an inspection - basically enough brake pad, good unscored rotors, no fluids leaking and an under the hood inspection. Its basically just a visual inspection to make sure everything is good.. then your off, just don't hit anyone and don't wreck and your straight. OH ya, and you have to have a Snell certified helmet.

While we can go all year.. its 28 degree's outside right now.. tomorrow is suppose to be 45, makes for crazy boosted pulls though! Just makes traction crap, cold pavement and tires = no traction. Should be fun.

Pinks is not filmed in one location, it is filmed country wide. I should know, since I attended one in Washington :)

Have fun, this is my ultimate goal, to get a quick road car :)

Yes, but it was filmed at Gainesville once, I should have said that it wasn't its perminant location, but pinks had been there.
