Track days are an awesome experience. Just keep your tires off of any painted surface.

I just got back, went out too yesterday and spent the night there, but anyway, I got 2 sessions at the track and it was bitching. Very windy but sunny and no rain had one bmw spin in front me and another one went off too. I'll put up some pics and vids soon

I was surprised with how the brakes held up, could push them quite far with little to no fade in the end, must've improved in braking technique, cause I'm still on stock brakes

I really want to get the brakes sorted tho, should net me a few extra seconds on track. need to look into suspension too and maybe a seat.
