here, I will save you the effort. buy this book now, it will be the best $20 mod you can possibly imagine.

the trail braking thing is not something you should think about much until you are a fast advanced track driver so when you get the book look over the chapters and read the parts that interest you, and then skim the other stuff. you'll come back to book later and always find little gems. some reviews mention it can get a little long winded at times, it is not, just very detailed, so when you find yourself loosing interest just skip to a different chapter and come back to it . as a track noob, you don't need all of the detail, and some of it will become common sense once you understand and can implement the fundamentals.

I wish I had ABS - I've flat spotted a few too many tires without it.

I hear that. no abs sounds like a great idea on a track car until you deal with the reality of flat spotted tries. at least the miata is light, If I locked up the brakes on my 944 it would burn to the cord in no time. totally sucks when you one set of Hoosers for the weekend.
