We will see if I can get a bunch of parts installed on a friends new car. ;-)

I just might take my junker out for some base line runs.

That friend will help out and bring the beer, but is it still considered new if the plates came in? haha

What else have you done? I'm going (all?) BMR rear suspension goodies to prevent wheel hop. In addition to tranny insert and Vogtland Sport springs and diff bushings. Only mod currently is x-pipe.

Still on those "super grippy" p zero's the factory gave me. 🤣

Should be a fun track day...

How are the springs treating you? Stock shocks I'm assuming.. I'm a coilover guy but the total of 1.3 drop doesn't sound like it would hurt the shocks to bad.

Definitely, I just don't want a skateboard just running on springs. Never have, thanks for the input.

Multiple spills, wrecks, wheels coming off. After a 4 hour hang out in the staging lanes I finally got a run in at 12:11

But by the time I got to the line, the track felt good.

Last time I was there several years ago, it was a major CF and the track was slick as snot. Just curious if any thing had changed.
