No but it is pretty miserable out.  It is a high of 34 and raining today which for us Floridians really sucks.  The thermometer in my car said 29 on the drive into work today.   You guys are getting worse then us up there.

In reply to Dusterbd13 :

Thanks.

1st session under my belt.  Car did great, no issues.  I am already ahead of the game relative to the corvette.  Track is wet but is drying with each run group.

So far I have done 3 20 minute sessions.  Car has been rock solid. 

It has been raining the entire time but should be dry the rest of the day.  I feel super slow but the last session I passed 5 cars in the instructor group and never got passed myself. So I am either not as cautious as the others or i am doing something right.

Representing!

Did you trailer to the track or straight drive it?

I was running a 1:37 in the rain.  First session after lunch I got a 1:30.  Adjusted tire pressure went out for 5th session and got a 1:27 on my 3rd lap.  After that car started a random intermittent miss and I brought it in.  I was on track according to my split timer for a 1:26 or high 1:25 when the miss developed.sad

On the way to advance for a new coil and some plugs...

Finished up the day after figuring out what was arcing. 

Car performed great, I am happy with it and am already plotting a harness bar and some tow hooks.

Don't get a harness bar if you want to continue to do track days.  Either stick with the stock seats as is with a CG lock, or go all the way with a proper rollbar, fixed back seats and 5-6 point harnesses/HANS.
