Got some more track time last week.

Started with some shenanigans...



Then some more shenanigans...



Then the car was packed up...



First day out (Sat) was at Thunderhill on their West track.



Weather wasn't great. But it was clear enough to keep the track open.



Second day out (Sun) was at Buttonwillow on their 13cw track.



The weather was much nicer.



Hit some traffic on the way home.



Over the weekend, I cleared 1,031.5 miles.



**** was cray.

Session 3:



Session 4:



Session 5:



Session 6:



Session 7:



Got down to a 2:17.2 which isn't too bad either. My lack of power was really killing me at this track.

Of course there are videos as well. Friend of mine let me borrow one of his cameras so I had 4 this time. Decided the pedals was a good spot. Although I should have put it facing backwards.

My best laps;

The post/media limits are kind of annoying...

Weekend started with new brakes.

New blank compared to the old *****.



New brakes are WRX size Centric premium rotors and Carbotech XP8 pads.

Also put in SS lines, Super Blue fluid, and a Grimmspeed MCB.



That stupid brace was such a pain to put in.

Also, now that the 10"s are gone, I finally removed the flares.



That stupid 3M tape was such a pain to remove.

Updated my decals...



And finally I had one last item to put on the car...



Packed up all the track crap and headed back out to Thunderhill!

Monday I was back at the track.

I somehow got my hands on 7 cameras...



That was a mistake I hope to never make again. Video from the day totaled over 140GB!

20 minutes into the very first session of the day, there was a red flag. A GTR went into a wall.



Not a good sign...

I made it through all 6 sessions.

Got some coolant spray/leak going on. Might be headgaskets.



Chewed through the tires a bit more. I have 2 more days this following weekend. I hope they will last 2 more days.



As I was leaving the track... Check Engine came back. P0420 as usual... Third time this month.



The photographer at the event was super cool. He put a picture of me on his main page!



Highlight of the weekend.



Here's the Imgur album with more pictures. Exclusive Track Days @ Thunderhill 5-mile - Album on Imgur

I have timing and videos coming. Still gotta process all of it.
