Default Logs/Forms.. what do you record in them?

Title says it all

Im used to aircraft forms, so you can take a look at an f-16, a-10, or whatever and tell exactly whats wrong with it, how may lbs of fuel it has, hours run on airframe, engine, ect.

I know hours on track is probobly something recorded, what else?

just other notes? psi in tires, track temp, ect?

Crew Chief? Pilot?

Could be amusing to have 781's for my car, there's a lot of stuff that would be "shouldn't that be a red x... **** it, it'll still work"

Sorry I don't have any actual log book help, just wanted to throw some AF love out there.

Mostly just a log of any/all work and maintenance performed and what mileage it is done at. When I was competing for points in autocross I also used as a diary of sorts to jot down what I learned each race and what to work on.

Nothing, zilch, nada, zero. Nothing works the same from race to race. If it breaks, I fix it. If I ever have a reliable enough car to give a flying **** about tire pressure differences between sessions hell will have frozen over.
