    I am going to track my hellcat with a couple of very good friends (challengerdad) and some other guys. I have absolutely no nerves or trepidation because of all the great posts you guys have posted. I am definitely more educated and confident as a result of all the times posted, tips on shifting, tips on getting tires to grip and even tips on watching the tree. I cant wait for mid week and the weather will cooperate for us to run some hot times with some smoking hot cars.

    I will post some slips and hopefully have my gopro4 ready to go.

    let me know if there are any tips or side notes you guys can share. M6 and 3 season tires.
    I am going to fire it up and hit the mark!!!!!

    your nerves and mind will be going crazy when you first go and get ready to make your first pass. just breath, relax, have fun. do not worry about your time or what anyone else is going to say. just have fun.

    I am going to add some different tires for tomrw nights fun. I am going to add a drag radial. I couldn't get nitto or MT before tomrw. I could wait for another day but because I won't track it again anytime soon I am going to add the f1 drag radial. I will use these in the back and beat them and simply return my pzero pirellis back in fall before I put my car away.

    Looking forward to posting some slips and video. I have a GoPro4 I need to clamp down even inside car or they won't let us run. I get the safety aspect of it so I will be prepared ahead of time, I bought some different mounts with the set up for this reason.
    My goals are simple

    Use some fun with my friends and see what I can run.
    My experience on track may be minimal but my confidence is sky high because I know what to expect from all of the great members who share with us

    Anyone ever try Hooked on Driving? I'm thinking of giving it a try as a beginner at NJ Motorsports Raceway and would appreciate any feedback.
