Thanks. I always enjoy free track time. However, as I said before, I won't instruct in a caged Miata again. Getting into and out of that damned NA was like trying to slide through a mail slot. Muscles are hurting ALL OVER.

This is what Road America means to me.
Now that is what I call, "active aero." Wow, I have been going to Road America to watch races and race for about the last 33+ years and I have never seen anything like that. It didn't even phase the car.

My rotors looked like yours for quite a while, but the last track day I was going ***** out for lap times and that was the result. 1st time I ever cooked Motul RB600 fluid. The only way to know the true limits of the car is to drive just beyond them.

For example in the video below, the lead (crank bearings) spiked after a track day and has slowly come down, but still isn't at the pre-trackday level:

That's my point. It would really only show wear from the last time the oil was changed, not necessarily overall wear of the engine. It would be good after a track day to see the wear levels though.

Just discovered Driven and Blessed Youtube video of my first event with them a year-and-a-half ago in the rain. You'll see Splitter's white coupe briefly while my sedan gets a bit more coverage though mostly by accident.

So for those of us who have "changed" the color of our brake calipers from track days, I think I may have found an easier solution to do a custom color on your calipers from the tire rack. I am not sure how well it will turn out as you apply it with a brush?? They claim it is "suitable for racecars" and good up to 950 degrees. I cannot remember how hot my calipers get at a track day. Has anyone tried this and had good results?
