I took my TT GTS to Spokane and the 14 hr tow drained some oil into the passenger side turbo.  Not a big deal, except that it needed to be cleaned out before running downt he track.  Up and down the street to restaurant, gas station and Hotel.  Exhaust was clean after about 5 miles.  Ran my lowest hp setting (10psi boost on pump gas).

I tried a drag race and with R888s left me wheel hopping more than halfway down a fully prepped strip.  11.4@144mph first run.  Hard on car, but that's probably what ruined 2 of my $300 CV joints  I made a couple runs from a 40mph rolling start down a 1500 or 1600' track.  I ran 10.002@163mph then 9.3@163mph which took first place until 5 minutes before the competition closed on sunday when a GTR ran 168mph his last pass.  3rd place was a modified, Nitrous'd ZR1 that managed a 9.4@162mph  Pnly first place paid the $500US and got the trophy.  David Lee said, "Second is same as last.  You lose that's all."
