    I've driven to Button Willow from Phoenix for track days but probably not this time. Its a good track (at least some of the configurations).

    Transponder fee? You mean you don't have your own transponder?

    Definitely add extra oil per the owner's manual. There are some long corners there and you don't want to have the pickup sucking air.

    You should come out when we participate in the Cadillac Challenge. There have been a few ATS vehicles participating in past events and they did pretty well. Nothing like being in a paddock surrounded by a bunch of Cadillac vehicles. www.cadillacrace.com

    that's just more fun time in the car, i'm thinking about this myself, need to buy a helmet though...no way they have one to fit my big head

    my only other concern is how rubber that will take off my precious summer tires

    And its a good idea to pull the wheel caps if they are plastic (most are). I run plastic caps in the HREs on my track car because at the time, the only metal ones were etched instead of brightly painted. They softened up from the heat and the fronts got thrown off the first time out even with massive brake ducting. Some tracks don't allow any caps on track anyway because they could cut a tire when run over.

    Re: SOCAL Track Day

    track day was awesome. the ATS with the eibachs did great and even in those extreme corners, nothing rubbed with the bigger tires/wheels i have.



    buuuuuuuut if ur not flying off the track, ur not having enough fun XD. lol had to go thru some trial and error to learn



    there were alot of D3 guys there really ripping the track. very friendly people, waved to me several times. great guys. one of the CTS-V's was loud enough to give you ear cancer and orgasm at the same time.
