If anything, I'd just pay attention to brake fade if you haven't upgraded your brakes/pads already as that's where you can run into trouble in the later sessions when you are feeling more confident. I still think you'll be fine, just don't be a stupidhead on the track.

Hustler ... ive been on this forum for nearly a year and a half and during that time i went from having no miata to now having a turbo miata nearly set up to handle track sessions, and have competed in probably 10 autocross events as well and it is a ******* blast.

I have a feeling that you are a very experienced driver on the track and have a pretty good understanding of how your car handles. Even with a 300hp turbo miata, you can make the choice to never use it fully until you are comfortable doing so. So hurry up and just install that kit you showed us 2 months ago and stop asking rediculous questions. You know very well that all you need to do after that is just take it easy at first, focusing on making smooth transitions and getting comfortable with the power delivery and extra speed.

Yeah, but you know how it is when you get out there. If I can eclipse the street car lap record...I want it. lol.

On a side note, the guy who was doing my machine work was fired today, and I can't seem to get him on the phone. Where is my '99 motor...nobody knows. :(

Guess that's why you've spent all your off time getting jacked. Go get your damn motor back.
