take out your spare and run like 1/8th tank, give yourself the best chance. next time i go to the track (after some power mods) im gonna drop weight, should help ALOT.

side note....i wouldnt run your 08 too hard until its broken in! get some good mileage on it before you start runnin it hard ya know.
Hehe good tips

I'm sort of pushing the car already though, o well I have full-syn oil in, and it runs quiet and smooth, so no complaints so far.
