Your call on track. Beretta is set-up for Auto-X/road courses, Camaro, obviously straight line. Drifting is easy too though, I just hate changing the damn tires out.

If you're part of the 8% that rock out everyday, put this in your signature

Owning a DSM is like having retarded kids. You get angered and frustrated by them yet you love them to death.

Ive run it on the old motor, I havent done any track racing on the new motor cause the rears gettin a little loud, so If someone wants to run its gonna be from a roll until I get the rear in.

Oh and Im not a big fan of VTEC and boost, sure a boosted VTEC car is fun to drive but it also makes tuning a pain in the ass.

its usually the agressive cams that make it a paint to tune. Staying with ITR or CTR cams is the smartest choice imo...
