COTA Track prep

I am headed to Circuit of the Americas with MVPTrackTime Feb 1-3. 3 days on the sweet new track should put the ol 335XI to the test. I have almost 60k miles so I am a bit nervous. Here is what I have done and am planning to do to prep the car.

Car already has-
AST 4100's
Vorshlag plates
Cobb AP
M3 Strut brace

Here are new mods in prep of this event and going forward-
1- Brand new Apex ARC-8 17x9 square setup
2- Brand new Nitto NT-01 255/40/17 square
3- StopTech Power slot rotors x 4
4- PFC 08 pads x 4 (should hold up well even agter 3 days)

Prep work-
Oil change- Motul
Brake Flush - Motul 600
Alignment (pending)
Tech Inspect (pending)

I probably should change the diff oil, but I don't think I have time/money to get it done.

Due to the high speeds on the track, I am concerned about braking the most. I wish I had SS lines, but again running short of time/money.
