Re: (baxteR)

its around 55 bucks, you need a snell 2005 helmet (most motorcycle helmets fit the requirement), and your battery needs to be strapped down (im pretty sure the r fits this requirement)... you can sign up at motorsportsreg.com. If you run with a club and have a membership its probably gonna be cheaper.

Re: (baxteR)

Nope I haven't taken the R, since I have a track car (exhibit a in post #1) Yet I have gone to about 6 last season... Im planning to do alot more this season.... its really a great experience and the are amazing.... its also quite addictive... I feel that the R should be represented in such motorsports activities and it would definitely shine. Regardless its good fun.

You think a stock R would do well?

Mine was not stock, but I ran on street tires. The biggest challenge was modulating the throttle to keep the power down. We have almost too much for the track.<p>I will tell you that hitting 110 on the front straight and then laying into the brakes turn after turn was awesome. And the brembos were amazing.<p>Just do it!
