Question about the track cam, what was mpg like before and after? I will probably be tracking my car around 3-5 days a year going forward. The rest of the time she is a weekend warrior cruising the highways, maybe 3-4 medium length road trips a year to places like Napa, Yosemite, Tahoe, etc. so mpg is somewhat a factor.
I haven't checked the MPG yet. I run really short 315/30-18s on my track trips, which are 2.3" smaller in diameter, so I'm sure that hits the fuel economy. It's a mild cam so I imagine it does ok but not as good as stock.

Hey I'm going to be tracking Dec 21 -22 at Buttonwillow. They get almost no rain, so its a good winter track. Treat yourself to an early Christmas present and join me.

Man, I wish I could! My lady and I will be at a holiday party. That'd be great if you can make it to Buttonwillow. I'd like to get your insights on brake upgrades at some point, all the info out there is dizzying and it's hard to choose a direction. I'll have to save that upgrade for after I replenish the piggy bank, stock rotors and HP+ pads are doing okay for me so far.
