One small issue, when changing the tires from front to rear the other day, I noted some excessive camber wear on the fronts. Last Monday at the track, I used an infrared thermometer to measure inside-middle-outside temperatures on the tires and could see that they were getting much hotter on the inside sections. I have an appointment at the alignment shop later today and hope to reduce the static camber from 3 degrees to about 2 degrees. Even if that if there is an improvement on track later tonight, I doubt that my lap time will improve, as it is over 30 degrees and cars don't usually do their best in such hot conditions.
I briefly drove a student's car, a supercharged second-generation Miata. I could barely fit in the race seat as the steering wheel so rubbing against my thighs. The car felt quite a bit less powerful than my Civic, but the steering was spot on, better than any front-wheel-drive car can likely manage.
Here are some of JAG's excellent photos of the evening:
Here is a video of my best lap.
