Just roll it the way it is and get used to it..... Then change things you feel you don't like or think will make it better to suit your driving style! Any who.....Welcome to the asphalt Jungle!

Welcome to the machine. Mine is a DD, so no tracking. I only did HP/Trq mods. No suspension mods for a while. LSD will be the next big ticket item when my Military Reserve Retirement kicks in.

Welcome to the forum. I would strongly recommend that you have the windows down and the heater blowing hi and hot! I don't know what part of the country you are in when you are tracking it. But if it's a hot day, it will heat soak and go into limp mode after about three or four good laps. Also make sure that you have the stability control set to OFF. It will be a lot easier on the brakes. You should also have a look at the fuse box in the engine compartment and verify that the cooling fan relay is not melted at the base where the pins go into the fuse block. If that relay is fried you can easily overheat the car!
Otherwise, do a close visual inspection of each of the tires you intend to use for the track event. Any bulges, slices, cuts or sidewall damage should be reason to get a different tire! Beyond all that, clear your mind and have fun!
