Great thread.....Mike is 100% spot on in all his recommendations.....

Bottom line is get out there and have FUN.....get instruction and slowly modify your car as your ability needs it....starting out with a very fast, highly modified car just teaches bad driving habits!!!!

Quick question about spare tires. I'm currently running 225/45 on 17x8's. Would the OEM spare tire be good enough, or should I bring two of my OEM wheels/tires?

OEM spare is fine; if you lose a tire, make sure the spare is on the front.

In other words, if you lose a rear tire, put a front on the rear, and put the spare on the front. If you lose a front, just put on the spare in the front.

If you somehow magically lose two tires, I'm sure someone will give you a loan.

I drove this car with a spare on the rear. Holy CRAP it felt awful. I would BABY it onto the throttle and the car would walk sideways (easing onto it while cruising or after a shift). Definitely move it to the front.

Remember, you have a mechanical LSD. The spare ALWAYS goes in the front

Great thread! Going for my first HPDE event ever in June (/w instructor) and it was great to read all these seasoned opinions. Especially the part about driver aids on or off. Will probably keep them on to begin, LOL and then if the instructor feels comfortable with my driving level, see if s/he thinks that turning them off for a bit just to get a feel would be a good idea.
Thanks to all who have opined!

And yes, the owner's manual also says to ALWAYS put the spare on the front, they have the BIG warning signs too
