My first track day won't be for a few months yet, so I'm thinking I'll do some suspension pods before tackling an oil cooler issue that hasn't proven to be an issue, yet.
No reports I know of. I had my N55 at the track last fall and just this past weekend, no issues at all. My oil temps were street and my coolant temperature was actually about 30-40*F less than street. I am not chipped; stock intercooler too.
Brakes will be a bigger issue, get good fluid, SS lines, and possibly some pads.
