Skip the inspection, no cop will give you a ticket for that with the paper plate on the car. I know because I have used the paper plate for the last 10 years on 3 different track/daily cars. Only issue is that the dmv will only give you 3 temp plates per car per year now. I would drop insurance when I wasnt going to drive it for a while, then add it back when I needed to drive it to tune or for pleasure.
this deserves more than two props. by far the best idea. Think of it this way, you will be saving money since you don't have to waste a track day on breaking it in.

This is very handy information. I did not know that. Thanks.

There are many reasons I have no business having a track car. Spending money being just one of them. Lack of driving skills being a much bigger one.

+1 I have done this myself three times (before I was able to get the track car inspected) and did not have any problems. All you need is proof of insurance and about $25 IIRC. I still had functioning lights and signals.
