I dunno man, I went up to the mountains and drove 350 miles of beating the car and Saturday afternoon, woke up Sunday morning and went to an AutoX and took first in SSM and all I did was change my wheels. Don't think I was just doing a little boosting here and there in the mtns. either, I was chasing a turbo NC and a R32 GT-R (Sixshooter can vouch..he was in the Skyline lol)..we were driving hard...a lot.

It's strange to see a nearly identical car to mine on a track...looks great!

Did you drive for 2-hours between 4k-7k rpm with x# of brake applications and x-time of g-loading? No, you didn't.

Just to re-iterate hustla's point, I'm sure you drove hard in the mountains but I can guarantee you it was easier on the car than driving on the track.

The track is just a whole other level of abuse (and awesomess).

I am sure the turbo is worth it and I do have plans to go turbo after I have a good amount of seat time on the track, BUT there is a lot of post about turbo cars having problems at the track but the more I read the more I learn on how to prepare the car for a turbo. Such as extra cooling and V-bands

Bitch..you live in the land of flatness...you don't know **** about roads with grades and curves. The only curve you know is the boomerang you call your boyfriends ****. For the record, I have taken my *ish to the track as well, many times. As a matter of fact, I drove that bitch acorss the country, did a God damn ******* track day in Colofuckingrado (set 2nd FTD behind Mr Bundy) and drove it all the way back to Georgia. Yeah, I knew a few things about having a reliable car and not being afriad to break ****..which doesn't happen all that often. I'm guessing you don't think that doing hill climb events are hard on cars either? Eh? Yeah, maybe not the best thing to admit, but when the roads are empty, it's pretty easy to run an hour or two up and down a particular road at a hell of a pace (and not cutting lanes..because that's dumb....99% of the time). Did I ******* say that hard street driving is a direct replacement for track time? **** no. But from someone who does both, I don't mind making statements about reliability and hard street driving. My God if I had the spare cash and time, I'd love to come out there and school your ***.

Look here, fagette, a hill climb is nothing like 2-hours of **** glowing red. I don't really give a **** if you had the 2nd fastest time of the in gay-aids colorado, I'll **** all over your lap-time in a diesel Expedition. Finally, you're a closet homosexual and you need to watch the way you type to me on this forum or I'll drive to Florida in my Bugatti and beat your *** like a bitch.

First the **** off, who in the God dam world holds track days with 2 hour sessions?? ****, SCCA Pro IT racing barely does 2-hour RACES. Yeah, I can see 2-3 hours overall in a DAY of sessions at a track...but not solid 2 HOUR sessions. FFS, the fuel tank in a Miata wouldn't hold enough fuel for 2 solid hours of running with a turbo.

Secondly, you don't give a **** because you've never placed that high at a timed event...stop your whining. Besides, only the Excursion came in diesel..the Expedition never did.

And lastly. Don't tell my gf, let me drive the Veyron and there isn't a muscle on your body big enough to bother me
