Swapped out the street pads, wheels, and tires for the track versions for a track day this Friday at Pocono. Bled brakes and also cut down the rear jounce bumpers by about 3/8". Checked suspension fasteners, bushings, etc.

Running North/South Option 3 which is similar to the usual SCCA Track Night (N/S Option 2) but with an extra "bulge" on the right.

Although overcast it was a great day for a track day. About 55-60°.

Had two 30 minute stints and called it a day due to a leaking axle seal. I'm pretty sure it was due to overpressurization because of a clogged axle housing vent tube. It didn't leak any further on the 2-hr drive home.

Adding "check vent tube" to my track day checklist.

I'm guessing that even if the seal only leaked because of overpressurization that it should now be replaced. Is that correct?

Ran autocross Saturday and Sunday, finished 4th and 2nd. More competition this year, 7 competitors over the season. Finished 3rd in CAM-C for the year. Will have to push a little harder next year. The winner this year drives a 2013 3.7L Mustang.
