Good to hear! Did you end putting 0w-30/5w-40 or sticking to default 5w-30?

Gingerman is a nice little track. Corners 8 and 9 are perfect for high speed, sustained high g forces. If you don't have oil pressure issues there, you likely won't in most places. Have you checked out Grattan raceway? It's about 1h south by South Haven, MI.

Not yet, It's north of Grand Rapids. Just a newbie so I am trying to get a few track days under my belt before heading off to other tracks. Pretty intense though, just cleaned all the rubber and brake dust off the rim and changed the pads back over.
