I'll be there at TWS (Texas World Speedway) on the 6th as well but what does it matter as long as you get your tracktime in. I ride with both organizations and always get my tracktime. Guess you have to determine what group your in and to compare both is absurd. Really, like look at Longhorn school Mike Sanchez and Haner are teaching. Are you all really going to start comparing who better or what? What really matters is you gather as much education you can to benefit your ability to perform your skills on the track. Don't forget who's really in control you are not LSTD, Ridesmart, Longhorn. They just merely provide the base of what you must prove to yourself you got what it takes to get you to the next level. I jumped into Level 4 and the racer group my 3rd trackday. Not to say anyone can advance themselves that quick but gather what you can and acheive your own goal. What I mean is get your time in and educate yourselfs to an extint of being a better rider. Don't take sides and compare businesses. That's like saying HEB is better the Kroger. Total BS. Get my point or maybe not. It's always your decision where you spend your money.

Everyone knows Super Target is better than both...

Who cares if someone has loyalty to a certain group. I'm good friends with many LSTD guys and they've been grea to me, I support them first and foremost. I've only day LSTD events, but might actually try the dark side for this trackday... :icon_bigg

Nothing wrong with Ridesmart other than it can get a little crowded at times. Just have your gear on ahead of time and be first in line at pit out and should be fine, no problema.

Yeah, and that's about the absolute worst kind of problem... too many riders = too much congestion = too many people making stupid passes and lack of skill with close quarters causes bad reactions from most.

If I knew the track I'd do the level 4 but seeing as though this is the first time I"ll be here I'll do level 3...

wow tony... sorry if i hit a nerve man... :dontknow:

not trying to do a comparison... just my personal preference...

lstd is a top notch organization - IMO they offer the best of everything... great school... not soooo many riders on the track... tons of fast instructors with mad skillz... alan tan, ronnie hay just to mention a few... it's the complete package if you ask me...

anyway - see you on the 6th...

I think Whole Foods is better then HEB or Krogers. :dontknow:
