Change for Laguna Seca - Put the sock again but no spill. I'm guessing cooler temps (60F), high temp brake fluid and slightly less fluid in the reservoir to begin with helped.
PS fluid is supposed to be at bottom mark of dipstick when cold. Anything more is overfilled. So we should consider our PS reservoirs 'self adjusting' - anything over bottom mark and it spits it out during trackdays.

I do daily drive the car and it's currently aligned to oem spec. I'm not planning on upgrading to coilovers for a long time either.

I was thinking best bang for buck would be the Dinan Fixed Camber Plates but should I bite the bullet and go for the adjustable ones which can give you even more camber? Thoughts?

Assuming you don't live in west bumblefuck, get the adjustable kit. I see no reason to adjust alignment more than once or twice a year unless you have a penchant for slamming every curb on the track, but having the flexibility to test things is worth the slight upcharge.

+1 vote for Vorshlag's kit. Terry and Jason make great stuff and are serious track guys.

Like you, I'll only do a handful of track days this year.

My car has to remain comfortable on the street, because that's where 99% of my miles are accumulated, so I make compromises that hurt my lap times in the interest of retaining comfort.

But on track, I experienced severe front tire wear with the stock alignment specs, so I decided to install some adjustable camber plates.
The results were well worth the time and expense.
I can quickly change the front camber settings (from -2.0 to -3.0) at the track, then reverse it for the drive home.

The local alignment shop told me to bring my own specs if I wanted something different than OEM, so that's what I did.
They even let me help.

It's all detailed here:

What are everyone's thoughts on the Pinnacle Motorsports brake ducts? Got these photos from their Facebook and trying to figure out if anyone here has them and if they direct the air into the rotor hat.

One thing worth mentioning is 'does it direct the air into the rotor hat' will depend on which brake kit you're running. Hat size varies between different BBK's and stock brakes as well.

My mistake. I'm on stock brakes still.

By the looks of those pictures - no. And almost certainly not for stock brakes. The Hard Motorsport ones do work 'properly' for stock brakes though.

Appreciate it thanks. Wanted to verify before purchasing something that might or might not work.
