    Anyone here track their RS yet?

    I've been trying with hitting the track for a number of years with various other cars I've owned, but 2017 may be the year I finally take the plunge.

    I would most likely be staying semi local and hitting thunderbolt in NJ.

    Drag strip or autocross? Drag strip I plan on doing it after the car gets a chance to break in.

    I meant road tracks. But any track I am wondering about as well.
    I'm hoping to hit an event in August... the car should have plenty of time to be broken in for me at that point.

    No... 2017 is pretty much filled. No mention of 2018 classes yet. Not sure if I am going to do it.

    They had a pretty good road course out here in TX until a few years ago but unfortunately had to shut it down due to cost. That Thunderbolt track looks really badass.

    It's supposed to be pretty good, and it's not far from me... maybe 1.5 hours?

    1.5 hours isnt bad at all. Just make sure you don't overly abuse your brakes. I've known people that had to tow their cars home because they burnt their brakes out on the road course.
