AusTouge Continued...

Ok ok, I should really get this posted. So the story goes, A bunch of ae86 guys decided to go for a drive. The turnout wasn't great compared to the usual standards, either was the driving pace, but hey, it was still some fast ae86's driving through the hills.

Not the car you want to be driving on the mountain, especially when you scrap on cats eyes.

We took off again from this point, There was a Red ae86 leading the way, followed by a Yellow ae86, followed by my car, the rest didn't last very long before falling behind again.

There was a section of road that had two lanes going up the hill and another lane for on coming traffic, I don't have a speedo, but i spent most of it in the top of 3rd and 4th.
