i think i may heard of Julian Highway, if u love speeding so much i highly recommend taking your mini to the track, streets of willow.... your car will perform really well out of the box .. the only canyon i tend to go to out in that area is palomar canyon with my bike and that place is awsomeee .. theres alot of canyons out here as well but im sure there are more up there.. well if ur ever in the anacrime / OC or LA county area feel free to hit me up... i definitely gotta take u up to the local favorites nearby here

sounds great ill definitely keep that in mind, i cant remember if ive ever been to palomar, i think a friend may have taken me up there when i had my ZX10R a month before i crashed it, lol...im not much with the speeding in the mini, but i do like to push him through the corners. tracking is something i have wanted to look into but i have have a blown strut(older KWs) and have a set of HotBits on order from a guy in Ontario, CA

lol i ran streets of willow with just lowering springs and with my runflats and i did just perfectly fine even though i had a blow out with my stock runflats there, that place is only corners so u would love it alott ! lol i crashed a couple of bikes up there including my duc 1198 but out of all the canyons for bikes its probably the cleanest ones out here now i just gotta take out my s1000rr out there now =P im ordering the kw v3's soon but for now still looking for wheels, thinking of just going on volk te37's for street and for track stockies... i can guarantee you that once u go track u gonna wanna go back again and again =)
