NASA Socal willow springs!

I ended up going solo so I apologize for the lack of pictures. I did my NASA track day today at willow springs, I spent a lot of time doing endurance races in an 03 mustang with a bunch of buddies; first time back on the track in almost 7 years!

The organization is great! I will definitely do another event with them; it’s just simple fun learning the car and really seeing what this car was built for!

it was a high 90’s day at Willow Springs! I changed the oil in the car after break in, but otherwise did nothing to prep.
Factory pads did great at high speed 100mph braking no fading to report but I plan on changing them.
car ran excellent in sport mode with all assists off in expert mode
Tires were very sticky and aside from rough patches were exceptional on the hot tarmac.
I did get the AWD diff overheat error on my second lap in the morning; but it stayed off the rest of the day.
Overall I can’t wait to get the car out there again!!! Lotta good people and fun cars to drive against; everything from supras to an x5 M competition.

Also was one of the three Corollas on Sunday. Had overheating diff issues in both afternoon sessions but it was hot out there and I was pushing hard.

How did I miss you guys!!!
You didn't get the Sunday memo? Unlucky, I definitely will be going again sometime though.
There were, I was just a little preoccupied as it was my first time on a track. I didn't really pay too much attention to any of the other cars, but I was out there with at least 2 GRCs.

Sorry I had to do you like this @viceless, but it was fun chasing you down!!
