    Prep Work

    I would like to start a thread about prepping for events, guys can start a post with the event prepping for and then follow with comments. This should be for tips and tricks about event attendance for individuals that haven't attended an event but want to. The thread should focus on non-horsepower tips that can assist others in getting there V into events. Basic example:

    Road Course HPDE:
    Bring a torque wrench for tires
    Bring trash bags for your seats if it rains

    Yup, at an HPDE you'll be running windows down regardless of weather. If it's raining you might want trash bags over your seats.

    Standing Mile:
    Ziptie reinforce all under engine plastic panels.
    Drain catch can between passes.
    Make sure there is an ice vendor for hx tank.
    Air compressor for tires, 40psi
    Gaffer tape for seams or road wrap.
    Cover and tape foglight bezels. (Can suck through over 170...)

    Be prepared for stuff to fly off car.

    Awesome! I've been really curious about prep for those events, I've heard of the brake ducts coming apart at sustained speeds over 140
