    Hey guys, as some of you may have known, i went to a track event hosted by Speed Ventures this weekend at Buttonwillow Raceway Park. Super cool event and i recommend everyone to go out at least once to see what your car can do.

    This is the track lay out.

    Yesss I was hoping you'd post a video. It sounded like you were burying your foot a little around the apex to get it to 3rd so you could gain speed easier coming out of the turn. Or do you keep it in D3 the whole time?

    Looks like so much fun, would like to try this sometime. :bowdown:

    Did Johnson fab up that diffuser?

    I drove on D4 all the way. It is fun dude, you should try it out sometimes. As far as his diffuser goes, i think he did.

    Yea I need to take a look and see what's around me. Brought a smile to my face just watching you. Did you buy a helmet or do you just buy a headsock and they rent helmets out?

    We've got three race tracks around Toronto, looking forward to getting out once the swap is complete and the suspensions is upgraded. What kind of tires did you run for the event?

    BTW ... For the GTA crowd, OptionJDM had a track day at Shannonville this past October and will probably have another in 2014. $120 for a whole day of lapping is not a bad deal.
