Mikealicious' Thunderhill Experience!

well, can't say enough how sick Thunderhill was today. Thanks to my srt-4 buddy's for continuously pushing me to get my ass out there. I'm glad I did. I thought I knew my car pretty well, but 5 mins into the first run told me otherwise. My instructor was awesome and helped me out tremendously. Helped me be smoother around the track, not use my brakes so much (which saved em), and carry more speed through the corners. For all of you that are thinking about doing it, do it. By far the best money I've spent on my car. No better mod than driver mod people! Here are some pics and vids of todays adventure. vids are long, so if you got time, watch em all. If not, watch the first and last to see how I progressed. It was awesome. But I think in the second run is where I overtook a vette, m3, and a couple other cars. Hard to remember, I was too busy cheesin. Wanted to flash the vette the hazards soooo bad.

I had four 20min sessions on the track. I had to break each run group up into 2 parts for youtube
