I have spent time on the track but in much faster cars with some instruction. I decided I need to learn to drive a slow car fast, rather than a fast car slow. It was a humbling experience, to say the least.

But you could be right, and if that's the route to go, then I'm fine with that. After my first lap around the track, I was able to leave my ego in the pits. I just don't want to destroy a set of completely good all seasons after a day or two and my understanding was that track tires are better suited, and considering I am looking at a "new" set of rims and tires, I start there.
