i'd risk it and just get a tow truck if something does happen. depending on what breaks you might not be able to get it back on a trailer anyway.

I still can't believe my friend drove his FC 5 hours from Iowa to a drift event by my house, then went back the same day. granted FC's have like 73 horsepower and can't really break anything.

its only ~50$ to rent one for the day so it would be really nice peace of mind

You’re taking the civic right? Nothing will break, even the corvette nothing will break people think a track day is hard but it’s not if your car isn’t a POS.

You better bed in those pads on a back back road I always laugh at the people who try to do it there and just glaze their pads.

edit: I see diff fluid bottle now, clearly not the civic

Yup. A real one too. 98, manual. Guy before me had left it outside and it got really wet, so he tossed 75% of the interior, so I have to find replacements, plus the body has dings and dents and needs paint. I'm going to rip it apart to the bones and address any rust at all, then re paint and reassemble with all new bushings and sandblasted/painted parts. Mechanically it's fine, but I'm going to replace the engine with a newer built, high compression motor, and run it on E85. Nothing crazy. Just a fun daily to keep for the long haul.

Thanks! I'm super excited. I'm going tomorrow to pick up a donor Forester for the motor/wiring/ecu, and a few other bits as well.
