Post up on the Tucson Camaros thread. Lots of locals there. I live 70+ miles away. Close enough to visit but I'm not the city/suburbia type.

Musselman's (sp?) is basically a go kart track. I put supermoto tires on my dirt bike and had a blast, but wouldn't think about taking my car there. Really narrow and small. Might be fun in a...

When I was stock, I never had any engine heat related issues. Was only running 20 minute sessions. Brake fade is a much bigger problem. Get some high temp DOT 4 brake fluid and change it often.
