    Hey guys,

    I've been lurking for quite awhile and learned a lot from this forum. Things like Livernois tunes are great (have one) and that I can't install an oil cooler on my car as I have the traffic sensing cruise control.

    My question is I have a 2010 SHO non-PP car. It's loaded with luxury to the tune of 4400lbs. Can this boat handle sessions on a road course like VIR or Summit Point? I have a Livernoise tune (94 stage 4) and enjoy it. I just have my reservations about heat buildup in the ptu, brakes, etc. Since mine is a non-PP car it doesn't have the oil cooler, ptu cooler, etc that the PP cars would have. That concerns me from a long term reliability and session overheat stand point. I'd hate to spend cash on a track day at a road course and then have to pedal the car after 10 mins because it's over heated something.

    Any advice, experience, or other you can provide? Has anyone tried an HPDE with our family bruiser cruisers?

    As long as you don't go completely balls to the wall, you should have no problems. The only thing is to definitely get better front and possibly rear brake pads. The stock and PP pads on a 2010-2012 are not the best for doing an HPDE, especially if you are putting out more than stock HP. I would also consider changing your brake fluid to something more high performance, for safety sake. I've tracked my former 2010 and current 2013 (both non-PP) with no problems. Just be sure you drive around the paddock for 5-10 minutes after you get off the track to cool everything down.

    Any major lessons learned from your HPDE experiences with the SHO? I'm considering taking my 2011 SHO out for HPDE at Summit.
