Well my first full instructed day on track at Harris Hill Road was friggin awesome. Only thing that sucked is I couldn't have anything in the car that wasn't "bolted down" so I need to install this camera mount I bought. Maybe next time I can get away with my suction cup mounted iphone. The 720p video on the iphone is pretty good. Anyway, I have next to no pictures, but some guy was taking professional ones to sell. I'll buy those and upload.

Tires arrived Friday I decided to put them on before the track day. It made a huge difference over the Nexens I had on for Daily Driving.

Just changed the oil & brake fluid (getting ready for track day on Saturday) Running - amsoil 0w-30 and amsoil series 600 racing brake fluid.

So as you might be able to tell from the picture in the previous post, the exhaust didn't exactly line up. I had some major fitment problems as there is this tow loop in the way.
We tried to take it off and the dang thing wouldn't come off so Chris ended up grinding it off. Well, I still have a tow loop on the other side. And if I need to get pulled out of a ditch, I don't care much where they hook up.
Now the exhaust is the same level on both sides and I am a happy camper.
I just received my Cobb high flow cat. It was a great deal at $200 shipped, but the delivery was bad timing because I didn't get it until about 2 hours AFTER I had my car up off the lift at Chris's shop. So it looks like we're getting this installed in the driveway. When I get the downpipe I'm definitely going to be going to a place with a lift to get it installed. Screw driveway installation.
Which reminds me, I met some people on the Team High Rev forums and am thinking I'll join that group if I can. They seem like nice people, plus one of my old WoW buddies is in that group. Anyway, one of the guys there hooked me up with one of the guys from the Evo X forums who is selling an AMS downpipe for a great price. Which means before the HPDE I will have a full turboback exhaust and new tires! :D I need to buy brake fluid, get an oil change, tech inspection and possibly new brake pads though.
