Here in the States our roads are all messed up with rocks, debris and ledges without rails.
Just throwin in this:
Now I have never been to japan, but I would think that california alone has more roads than japan. Due to their lack of, makes it much easier for road maintenance. I could be completely wrong though.

Looks like it was a blast though!!!

i see it more as government priorities are in different places. more people use the freeways than the touge... which explains why part of *** has been closed off for a lOOOOOOOONG time.

of course... our freeways are crap too, just ask anyone who rides in my car :p

Man, you guys have to go pick up this DVD! It's awesome. Ray and Rudy came by with my copies last night and we watched it over some beer. When Spike comes on, they show a close-up of the sticker right above the hood scoop, then they pull back, revealing the car (and motoring|underground URL) to the sound of some classic BMI funk. The narrator says something like, "Hey, now this is a car you don't see many of in Hot Version!"

I won't spoil the rest of it, but my guess is I'm going to see people peeking through my windows every now and again, looking for Keiichi's signature to verify that its the motoring|underground MINI featured in American Touge 2. Spike looked great lapping that track, so much that they used footage of him in the scene selection screen for the FF chapter.

I've gotta toot my own horn by saying he was one of the hottest sounding cars on the video, too.

BUY IT NOW!

Spike does have a great segment! Go watch it!

Japan puts a lot of priority on road maintenance...every night they have construction crews out repairing the roads. Must be nice!
