Just like the title says who is tracking their car? What are you using for brakes, brake fluid Etc. What are you doing to prep your car? Here is my Road America track day in July 2015....
Did you noticed any difference in handling when you lowered your car? Was it worth it? How did you do it? Where have you tracked the car?Motul brake fluid, XP12s in front (will try 10s in rear next), lowered on OEM bolts, custom alignment & RE-71R Bridgestones on base wheels. Great track car & inspires confidence!
Always a good idea to follow the Owners manuelAre you guys swapping out to 15w50 as recommended or staying with 5w30? We just bought our car used last week and the dealer literally out fresh oil in it the day we picked it up. Have my first HPDE on Sunday and not sure what to do, thinking I'm just going to swap out to 15w50.
Sorry left for Vegas 12 hours after the HPDE. Somewhat recovered nowVery Cool. What track? Any video?

It was Pittsburgh International Race Complex (PittRace) on their new South Track. I wish it was the full layout (North and South combined) but Exotic rentals had the North Track.
Here is some video that I uploaded before we left, some traffic in the beginning but it opens up towards the end. My biggest issue was trusting that the brakes would be there as I was approaching the braking markers off the straights, I kept "triple braking" and coasting my first 2 sessions. Started trusting them and braking later and harder in this session. Had an absolute blast and will be back next year to continue my on track education.
My instructor was a local guy that I know through Cars n Coffee who happens to own a McLaren P1 & 650S, he took me for a few laps in the 650S during the instructor session... wow what a car.
That is a very cool video. How fast did you get going on the straights? it looked like a good track.
