    I actually got pulled over in my miata with a friend who was driving my car, thrown in the back of a cop car, and my car ripped apart on mulholland one time because when coming out of a corner, my exhaust sounded loud (supercharged, no cat, borla exhaust). After searching my entire car, finding nothing, he didn't even give me a ticket, just gave my friend a ticket for expired license.

    What a #$@%$@#%$#@!
    This is why we never drivve fast on that stretch.

    That was a great time guys. Except for that stupid red car.

    No incidents, No tickets.

    Also, turns out, the guy taking pictures halfway up wasn't a cop. One of the guys on bike's sent me to his flickr page. It's a guy who is up there almost every weekend just taking pictures:

    Today was pretty awesome. I was glad to meet you (John) and the other guys. You guys are pretty hardcore on the touge! Lol! I learned a lot and have much respect for all of you. Thanks for the invite and hopefully we can do it again sometime.

    I hope that guy took a pic of my DB8.

    That was fun! I had forgotten how enjoyable canyon driving can be.

    Good to see John, Matt, and everybody else. Matt, you did a pretty good job keeping up. You'll will do just fine on the track.

    John, here are a few I shot of those runs you did. Eh, we can do much better with some nicer light and more planning. And if you didn't have a damn black car.... It just sucks up the light!

    2 - Yes, I had to put up a photo of the 5mph red car. Gives us faster red cars a bad name.


    3 - All three of you guys

    ^ Thanks Aaron. That means a lot coming from one of you pros. I had a great experience today running with you guys. Hopefully I can run with you guys on the track someday.

    Awesome pics BTW!

    I normally don't do these run much anymore because of the safety of them. But that was so much fun, I think I am going to do it again with the motorcycle next weekend on the same roads.

    Great photos Aaron.

    Yeah, the runs were pretty intense. But fun. Hope you have a good run with the Ducati. And be careful. Let me know when we're gonna have another cruise.

    I guess by the looks of it, my suspension is stiffer than a stock evo suspension. We were both going close to the same speed through that section.

    Yeah, your 911 looks like it was on rails. The Evo was leaning a bit. It had stock suspension right?

    Yes, the evo is stock. My car only has the stock euro spings, bilstein HD shocks, and gt3 sways.

    Nice. I need to get bigger sway bars and upgrade to full coilovers. I have Ground-Control coilover sleeves and Tokico HP shocks.
