Avoiding money shifts, avoiding red-line. Only testing and tuning at this point. I'm instructing at these events and these are instructor only runs, so I'm not max'ing out anything at this point. Not yet. Don't want to risk engine failure or major catastrophe before race season. It's like when qualifying. A few good laps to determine position and then back into the paddock to wait for the race.
