I'll have to pick up some track pads since the ceramics are not for track use. Maybe cool carbon.

Edit: will also have to get the diff installed early to get through the break-in.
Beta,

Why not go with PTech later this month to get some seat time? It's a private track day so you go at your own pace. I'm sure Matt with help.

There were no E85, an E89, and about 10-15 M3s yesterday.

Great sunny weather in mid 60s. Loving my PSS + KW V3 so I think I'll be back in Feb.

Crap...looks like I might have to cancel the February 18th day. Work is likely sending me over to Houston for the NBA All Star Weekend (tough life I know, but it really does involve work) so at least my excuse is a legit one.

I'll find out for sure this week, but just to gauge interest, is anyone interested in my spot? I have a spot in the solo (newbs) group and an instructor reserved as well.

I will be interested in taking your spot but won't be needing the instructor.
Let me know if you can't make it. If I don't take it, I might be able to find someone in my group that will.

Edit: I can take over your spot at the NBA All Star as well.

Hahah...well good news and bad news (for me). Good news is that I'll be able to make the track day on the 18th. Bad news for me is that I will be going to Houston for setup and some press events, but I leave on Friday (basically when all the real good stuff starts happening). I'll be able to go behind the scenes on some stuff and probably meet some cool people, but I'm going to be completely missing our gifting suite on the weekend where all the stars and celebs come through to get cool Skullcandy stuff.

Oh well, I'd much rather hang out with you guys on a race track anyways...

Hahah...yeah get in line. I swear I always miss the good stuff. Like earlier this month I missed the video shoot we did with Kate Upton for the products that I created! (For those of you that missed the first video we did with her and James and Kevin:
)

We're doing some cool stuff though, attendees get to enter a contest to play against James Harden and Kevin Durant on NBA 2K13 for a quick 10 minute game or so...all of course using the Skullcandy Gaming headsets!

Mike...can't wait for the gift that we can all share!

Just registered as well!

For those of you that have headers + aftermarket mufflers, will just lifting at T5 allow me to pass sound check?

Lift + Upshift would be safer depending on how loud your setup is.

I do Lift + Upshift + bear left. Just in case...

Yeah I need to lift cause I got black flagged on my last session while Lon was with me. But, I'm probably going to have another (quieter) custom exhaust system by the time this track day comes up, so hopefully I won't have to do that.

Looks like I won't be able to make it out to Laguna again this coming Feb.
Had a "little" accident and "curbed" my wheel

It'll take Volk 90 days to make me a new wheel as it's custom offset. Not sure if it's repairable.
Anyone has any shop to recommend?
