oh sorry, it was sorta an inside joke to mean screech, cuz my brother Nemeisis crashed, low side outta 15, you should know him, but really, screets is just slang for streets..

sorry for the confoosion...

yeah, i tried to wide it alittle to get good drive, but could never follow a good line, cuz you look at nothingness when you come off 14, but yeah, my brother decided to square the turn cut too tight, and tried to hold the line, hit the little dip and the back juss kept on going, he pave surfed it off.. shame... we were having fun... is that 2nd gear turn for you??
