I have my car all ready for Gingerman in July, but I'll axe my friends if they want to go and I'll ride along with them.

i need to run my sx2 tires for gridlife (30th) and they are already on the car. i haven't broken 3 min yet with them on full. if i switch to the rs4s i've been down to 2:54 so at least i'll get run over a bit less. maybe better for me to practice on the sx2 since that's what i'll be timed on though.

in any case, i'm signed up

I've seen track guys post pics of their tires and wheels marked with chalk and the tire chalk line 180 degrees away from the wheel mark after a track session. Something about the corvette wheels not having any knurling on the inside.

was going pretty well - also viper day today, i think there were 18? quite a few!

i left early as my coilpack started kicking out codes - which based on past experience makes me think continued tracking will result in unspent fuel getting to my second/now only cat, and fucking it up too, so i left about halwfway through. which kinda sucks given how nice a day it is!
