With that said...exit strategies...exit strategies...exit strategies! Just as a tire could fail...suspension stuff can break at any point. Coolant and other fluids on track, parts, parts failures, other cars, animals...need I go on?

That's why it's imperative to have exit strategies and a keen awareness of the car's condition. Honestly, exit strategies and car control aren't talked about and taught enough in most DE events. Drivers who master those are faster. If you can't understand why, you need to start in the beginner groups again. But it involves your eyes.
