Remember to leave everything you don't need at home!

1. Floor Mats
2. Anything in glove box
3. Anything in the center console
4. Anything in the trunk
5. Driver Stuff
- Water (stay away from caffine and sugar), snacks, water, sun screen, water, baseball hat or something to keep your head out of the sun, water, a fresh Tshirt to wear home, water.... did I say water?

Driver's suit not required for HPDE, but if you already own one then it's stupid not to wear it.

I'm allergic to fire.

That's what cool suits are for. Didn't we have this conversation already?

<br />On the road. When I installed my exhaust after the trans swap the downpipe rotated a bit so it touches the body. My foot was asleep in 10 minutes from the vibrations. #becauseracecar

I suspect your next ticket will involve phone usage

Watch your speed on 162 after you get off I-5 heading in to Thunderhill. They looooove giving people tickets on that stretch.
