I wanna go to the track

I've never raced before, but I want to take my car to the track. I think there's one in Baytown so I'll have to research that.

Advice? Tips? Anyone up for going out & watching me trash my new camaro.

M6 & I'm not very good with it yet so I'll probably get laughed at. I mostly miss the 2-3rd shift, but I'm working on it.

I just wanna go for fun. Most likely won't put down any amazing times, but I need the practice without the worry of a ticket. Even a deserted backroad might have a cop hiding out so I haven't played much.

Well crap. I'm out for the track time. I can't afford $500 for a tune right now & with my check engine light on, I have to park the car until I can afford the tune so I don't mess anything up.

Its probably just an O2 code, and its not detrimental to the car you can still run it.

The code reader when I went to autozone said MAF related. I wouldn't be too scared to drive it except it acts like it sputters or something when I drive a constant speed. Plus, no need to go test at the track unless I can take full advantage of my bolt on upgrades.

Why couldn't a tune only be $300. I probably could have made that happen.

Soon though. I really want to see what it'll do at the track.
