No wheel hop (but I don't launch hard anyway). Traction is still great on fresh Trofeos. Have to be a little smoother when running older Trofeos and the Michelins. Rear can tend to walk out when...

I leave the Trofeos home if ambients won't get above 50 deg. That's usually not a problem here in Houston. On cold or wet track days, I run my Michelin PSS2's.

Trakktape on the front end and gills. Peels right off when done. Never had any issues with it. Takes about 45 mins to do a good job but a helper makes it go faster and look better.

It's been way too hot (for me anyway) and wet to do any track days down here in Houston. But we have Grand Sport rented for the day in late October. Probably another day or two at MSR.

If allowed, do some ride-alongs with an instructor and/or racer. That will help you see the line and also get you comfortable with speed and what your car is capable of.
