    Is anyone else doing the FCA event at the Daytona track after the Rolex? I just signed up. The 430 only lives 5 miles from the track so seemed like a no brainer.

    I thought about signing up and instructing but I’ve done Daytona so many times before and it’s brutal on the front paint or clear bra I’ve decided not to. If you haven’t done the track it’s a fun day, easy to drive, just a few critical points to be careful at. It’s a very very fast high speed track.

    Daytona is a great facility, extremely clean. The track is pretty easy to drive but very fast and demands great attention. You’ll have a ton of fun!

    Just buy Track Armor for $25 and cover the front…I do it all my track days and haven’t gotten a single chip.

    It is 2x thicker than any PPF and perfect for the track. Temporary and comes off easily.

    Just ordered it. I may try it when I go on longer rides as well. Do you just use on the very bottom nose areas?

    We registered as well. First road track event for me (I'm a drag racer in a past life). We are trailering the car down from Minnesota and will make it a 10 day vacation.
    I've got the front of the car PPF'd, but it sounds like I should be concerned about my ppf as well. If I use Track Armour, thoughts on areas beyond the obvious? I was planning on the the front, mirrors, side skirts, behind all wheels, headlights. How far up the hood should I go? Any other areas to be sure to hit on a 458?

    We are really looking forward to it, but don't want the car to be trashed when we are done.
