Background & Plans
Got the car new in March 2014, GT Premium Track Pack w/ comfort package.
I was talked into trying an HPDE 2 months later and it was all downhill from there...
On a relatively low budget, so at this point I am focusing on consumables and seat time (with a few tweaks here and there).
I try to get to 3-5 track days a year, as much as budget allows.

This spring a Maximum Motorsport 4-point roll bar is going in, along with harnesses and a HANS.
I might also try to improve front end airflow with some Racelouvers vents and a gt500 fan assembly.
I should probably get around to adding tow hooks.
I've been toying with the idea of trying the 300lb H&R Race front springs instead of the 240lb BMR ones.
I will be installing a switch on pin 5 on the ABS module to keep AdvanceTrac off, as it has begun to turn itself back on. I now need it off on-track as it interferes even in mild spirited driving since installing the 305 square setup.
Finally, I want to try to improve the rear end instability on braking as it is killing my confidence and pushing my braking points way out.
