    Last year, if I recall, Shady couldnt compete, so there might be a chance. Rookie, you have to park in the regular lot on this one :LOL:

    Some things to consider. I hsve no helmet, tires are at their end. Not certain if that's a good or bad thing. Also, this is my daily driver. Ya think I'm gonna spend the brakes? Would this be a good time to use up my goodyear stocker slicks? What if there's rain. Seems like it might get costly just to run around a bit. Sorry I sound like such a wimp. Give me some encouragement. Never had any formal training, but I have to say, I am a pretty good driver.

    Goto Berts Megamall and get yourself a cheapy motorcycle helmet for $40 (it is DOT approved). Your gonna need to replace you tires anyways - theres a great price on rotorpro rotors and brake pads.....so theres no reason you shouldnt!

    I don't think a little track time is gonna kill the FX. Wireboltman takes is FX autocrossing every year. But its up to you Dave. I'm not 100% on this yet, but considering it heavily.

    Have you guys ever autocrossed the FX? Thinking it's not such a bad idea to burn the last of the rubber on the goodyears. There's still some tread left.
    And seriously, I know it's not gonna kill the FX. I drive the canyons pretty hard, & this might be a way to really go deep into my turns. Always a bit cautious with the hills. Havnt you guys ever seen my doughnuts :LOL:
    I think I'd like to do this. Maybe Rookie can set me up wiith some slicks from Falken? :wub:

    Have driven the Little Tujunga Canyon Rd. before. I just did it this past Sunday cause of the FWY jam on the 5 and 14 due to that big accident. But i did it with the Lexus and boy I had a headache afterwards lol. Even on the sport mode the lexus was sloshing all over the road. And dam that rod is small. gonna try it one of these days with the FX and see how it handles those twits and turns.

    If you want to really do this Dave then I will be with you. I have never been on a track before so this will be my first road course. There does seem to be a little stipulation that driver's must get a education course prior to going on the road and this is on Sat. but it also said that for those that cannot make it to Sat for this little education course to call in. Register on the speedventures site i already did. I saw the list of cars and driver's that will me there on Sunday and there alot of very HIGH performance vehicles registered already.
