PROcede at the track

So I need some suggestions or see if there is anything I should do for taking my car to the track with my newly installed PROcede. I just put it last week, so I'm still learning with it. Should I have the laptop hooked up while I'm on the track? Any suggestions or tips would be appreciated. BTW, it's an oval track...not a drag strip.

I dont think laptop in the car on the track would be good idea. Better get everything ready and test before track. So you could concentrate on driving.

Just lower your turbo pressure to something like 12-13psi. When possible run eXX fuel. consider improved breakpads. That should give you a stable setup for racing.
Altough i''m more from a "normal"" track, which forces a lot of breaking and a hit on the cooling part. I can imaginen that this is slightly better on an oval.

i don't think they would let you have laptop in the car. i know my coordinator won't.
my car usually start hiccuping after 3-5 long straights, need to dial boost down and overfuel a tad.
