When was the last time you drove sandia let alone drifted it?

Making retarded statements like "every corner is the same" means you were going too slow to notice.

Seco is flatter, and really more of a kart track with a drag strip grafted on it. Pueblo is far superior.

I rode. Yes, the driver was a raging *****.

The lack of decent tracks out there was a major factor in not taking a job in Santa fe. The lack of elevation change made it kinda boring, but it seemed like you could get really fast out there, really quick, and competition would be steep.

If you want or expect Laguna Seca, move to NorCal. You have to expect to pay for it, and to be limited in the amount of time you actually get to use it.

You can get hours of track time at sandia between $40-$120

The mix of corners and configurations on it allow you to practice and test almost every section on the FD circuit aside from Infinion.

We have two pretty absurdly technical tracks in Dallas, Hallett is awesome, and a new track coming up in Austin.

I would ******* love to more to the bay area. I'd kill actually...but how would I get the miata inspected???

I've driven the ranch, it's a great track, but if you're not a member it's not exactly easy or cheap to get time on it. Hallett is good, but then you're towing. If I'm towing I'd rather go play at Pueblo. Or tow to Laguna. But for drifting sandia is way better than most of the tracks in the surrounding states.
