Well I just got back from a day of driving school at Portland International Raceway... and it was badass. Too not much surprise I was the only svtf there, but thats cool. Other cars included, a built to the nuts viper, half a dozen porches, lots of subarus, a couple of corvettes(one of which slammed in the the wall, and was towed back to the pits), panoz, lotus, mazarati, and a few other random cars.
My car is stock, and hit a top speed of 110 in 4th, before I had to slow for the turn. It rained alot the second part of the day and was impressed with how it still gripped the road.
Here are a couple of pics.
and that honda crx in front of my car in the pic, yea he spun out and threw dirt all over the track, then later on I had to pass him on the straights at 90mph.

Those type of events are a blast. Pretty interesting in the rain. Get used to being alone with the svtf. Outside a svtoa event I've always been the only svtf. Like WD stated, it's addicting.

addicting is an understatement.
I might get to run a couple times this year. if i had a race tomorrow it still would not be soon enough to be out there.
You Oregon folks need to hook up with Jmustang68 (http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/member.php?u=14878).
He's at PIR a few times a year.
One of these days...I'd love to head over and join y'all for an open track day. [:D]
