A few pictures of me on Tail Of The Dragon today
 
I was driving my dad's car. E60 528xi. Can't wait to come back in May to drive it in my Jetta. I wanna see how much today was me and how much was the car.

lol, then go to a track or find a local auto-x. A road won't tell you jack sh!t about your abilities, and I've been on the dragon before.

:rolleyes: it's the truth. You can't know your limits until you surpass them, and you just can't do that safely on a public road

+1. A public road is a horrible place to test your skills.

It's a fun road to drive. I Simile every time I'm on it. I just wanna return as often as possible

lcoleman 03-20-2013 08:23 AM

Cool. I've been to the Dragon more times than I can count.

Vin Vega 03-20-2013 07:01 PM

I'm putting in a sport suspension in my 70' vette build for the purpose of driving it on the tail.

Disagree. The dragon will test not only your knowledge of your vehicle, but it will also test your limit, and your balls/limit ratio, something a track can't teach you. I am FAR more exuberant on an auto-x than I am on the dragon. There is one guy in our group that no one, regardless of car can touch. Sure, there are faster cars than an s2000 on the dragon, but no one has the balls like him to drive at 11/10ths on the road. This guy talked A LOT of sh!t, and even after he crashed he was talking smack...almost like "dude I almost had you" when he claimed he can keep up with Bill (the guy Im referring to in my post.)

Here is a video of him running the dragon. Dragon starts at 13:40

The exhaust sounds like sh!t because one of the muffler's internals blew out.
