On the long drive home from a recent DE where over the course of 3 days, I did some 15 25+ minute track sessions, I pondered the cause of my mental fatigue, and wondered whether there might be any benefit to this hobby.

Well, it's been about 8 months since I installed my Fabspeed Catback exhaust - and I guess I've finally had enough of the drone.
I really like how it sounds under full throttle, and on the track, and have appreciated whatever HP increase it provided; but, as a daily driver, with a Tiptronic that frequently holds the RPMs right in the drone zone when driving around town, I decided to switch back to my stock exhaust.
I did decide to add the DREAM-1 exhaust collector.

Robert, who I made carsick a few months ago when I gave him a ride-along in my car, paid me back by outrunning me in his new, tricked-out JCW Mini Cooper S. I could still beat him down the straights, but with his Hoosiers, and me on NT05s, I couldn't hang with him through the turns.
Well, at 32K miles, including some 2 dozen track days, I finally decided to change my rotors. I have had a replacement set sitting in my garage for several months, but I kept feeling I could squeeze one more month out of them.
After my track day last week-end, I finally decided it was time - the fronts were showing a lot of cracks in the vent holes, and while none were "connecting the dots", or extending to the edges, the rotor thickness was also down to the minimum.
No, I didn't get pulled over for driving too slow at Hallett this month . . . but I did have an interesting vehicle to share my raceport with.
I thought it was a real police car when I first saw it (the Oklahoma H.P. do drive some mean-looking Dodge Chargers), however on closer inspection there were a few discrepancies, like the lack of radios and other usual law enforcement paraphenalia
