Got my "trackday, bro!" wheels/tires mounted.

Here's hoping I can cut loose for the CAM invitational at Mineral Wells towards the end of June.

Got some more stuff done on the car, alignment is finished and ran it with the track day wheel set to make sure nothing interfered.






New helmet, just a budget setup, we also have some open cockpit cars come into the shop so this might come in handy.



SKF hub adapters so I can upgrade the front hubs to something safer with sticky tires. There are quite few documented failures of stock hubs and replacements are dodgy as is.



Replaced the stock rack with an FE4 rebuilt setup. I didn't feel like trying to do the EPAS setup because a manual rack alone for the fbody is stupid expensive.

Finally got to run the car, I've still got a lot more learning to do with it and felt I left with a few seconds to gain. Fastest of the day for me was a 60.3, FTD on course was a Z06 w/ 56.1. It tracks through the corners better and it feels great to have 80 more whp and tq available, even if this was a tight miata-ish course in some of it so the whole run was in 1st gear.

I feel the 275s are a good start for me this season as it will help me at least learn more about the car and get some seat time. The BFG Rivals were very predictable but I'm not sure I even found their limits. The icy stuff was from all the gravel kicked up as the event wore on.

I need a harness, I found myself fighting to stay in position a lot.
Proper coilovers will have to be something to look into once I move up to a wider tire.
I need more seat time.
