First track day this weekend (Eagles Canyon Raceway)... what to bring?
I have my first track day in my 240 this weekend at Eagles Canyon Raceway... first time to do a track day. Car seems to be in pretty good form, but honestly, since owning the car I've only driven it about an hour total, even after doing an SR swap. I feel pretty confident that the car will hold up fine, but I wanted some advice on what to bring?
Obviously basic hand tools

helper for when u need to flush brake fluid, asuming you have the el cheapo stuff in there.
most tracks have power, so bring a ext cord and a fan or radio.
If you have to go to the classes, plan on being in there the whole time you want to work on your car.

ECR is rough on brake pads, hope you have something decent with SR power. I'd also suggest turning the boost down as far as you can, and overfill the oil about half a quart.
Bring snacks and WATER, lots of WATER. You need to stay hydrated, and I'd say 95% of my students who start doing stupid stuff just get dehydrated and start having lots of brain farts and driving sloppy.
Enjoy it though, going to the track is a blast. You should sign up for the next The Driver's Edge event at MSR-Cresson. I'll probably be instructing at that one.
