I didn't mean to come off overly harsh, and apologize if I did.

If you do get another FRS/BRZ, send me a PM and I'll personally cover your first track day. This way, you can push the limits safely, and get an idea of how spirited you can drive in canyons, without risking a spin/loss of control.

Glad your ok, no 3rd party was involved. Keep the reckless antics OFF the road and on the track.

Did you suffer any brain damage? Cheap lesson learnt anyway

Driving canyons at night allows you to see oncoming cars with headlights. yes its Cold and traction becomes an issue (keep traction control on) but with some sticky tires your less prone to losing traction. But if you don't know how to drive canyons I would stay off them as they can kill you! I don't condone anyone to drive canyons. I drive canyons yes but once winter hits I know to stay off even though I have the tires, suspension and other mods to help me keep it under control but it's better safe then sorry.

I don't see how this could possibly offset the reduction in depth perception and visibility.
