Default Prep Inspection/Checklist

I'm getting ready to take my car to my first out-of-town track weekend (have done a bunch within an hour of me). It's about a 3 hr. drive each way, so I'd like to do a little more thorough inspection than usual. I usually do the obvious stuff like fluid levels, inspect pads/rotors, etc.

So, since I know a bunch of you drive/tow a long way to most of your events, what do you do to inspect/prep your car before you leave?

For me, I'm comfortable enough knowing that since I do all the work and maintenance myself on the car, everything is up to par for a track day. But of things I still check/do it's basically check pads, bleed the fluids and off I go. But I bring enough tools with me, that if I did have a minor issue I could fix it pretty quick. If you're nervous about anything else, IE suspension, wheel bearings etc... you should go over it all.

Thanks. I found this pretty exhaustive checklist over on m.net: http://forum.miata.net/vb/showpost.p...56&postcount=2

It's a little more than I want/know how to do, but I'll probably try to work my way through and check as much as I can, since the car is still pretty new to me.
