Just a FYI on your helmet. It must meet the Snell 2005 cert or newer. Or meet a Euro equivalent standard listed on SCCA.com website.
Yea, had to buy a new helmet when I did the track day last year.... chin requires sa2015 certification. Thanks for the heads up though! 8)

Welcome!

+1 on a square setup. I ran 275/35/18 with 18x10.5s squared on my STU 350Z and it was pretty well balanced. Didn't have proper on throttle rotation until I installed an OSG LSD. Occasional push on entry with hotchkiss front & rear bars set at full soft each. Granted, my car was under-sprung and not properly damped.

I think the 370z will be the car to have in STU now. More power than the 350, similar dimensions, and close in weight. If you ever want co-driver I'd definitely give the 370z a go :-D
