Next track day is coming up. I've been going through the car to ensure she's ready. Brakes have been fixed up since the last track day, when we found some light leaking from the flexline connection to the caliper. It was the only thing found from the post mortem during the cars maiden track day, and mine. Log data has been sent to Delicious Tuning to check on the health of the motor, where we should hear back by next week on it's status. But other than this, the car is holding up incredibly. Temperatures are astounding on track, with a steady 230°-231°F oil temps, and 209°-210°F water temps. The @koyorad is doing it's job wonderfully, as well as the @greddyperformance track spec oil cooler.
Now, it's a matter of getting myself centered and ready. Every time I race, it reminds me of my jumps as a paratrooper in the Airborne Infantry. The suspense, the anticipation, and the fear that something might go wrong... every jump there was a risk my chute wouldn't open, or worse...
My service connected anxiety disorder and muscular disabilities do not make racing easy: I still get muscle spasms, and tremors, at every single track event. They're painful, and I have to walk with a cane after every event. But, I'm pushing through it to grow as much as I can, and as fast as I can, so I can bring these lap times down and begin growing. One day at a time... And practice, practice, practice. If you don't achieve something in life, you didn't want it badly enough.
