Background & Plans
Excited to be on here! I bought this car new in 2008 and have always kept it pretty tame...only 60k miles.

After a recent session at Limerock park...I am completely hooked on continuing to track it. The car has plenty of power for my skill level and I already cooked my rear brake during the last session at Limerock (can explain in more detail). That said, I really want to focus on improving the brakes and cooling. I will keep the car as a weekend driver, so will probably only get 5 of so (if i am lucky) track days a year.
