Just for closure, the 5k limiter issue was just the RPM translator mis set.

Track progress:
First track day I got a broken trailer, and it was raining so I just gave up and stayed home. Ate the track fee. O well.

Signed up and went to Buttonwillow CW13 on Saturday. Towed the car there, pouring rain.
Cleared up but got some fun wet laps in the morning.

The car did great, basically no major issues.
New o ring on the stock PS reservoir leaked again, so going to just get a fancy reservoir.
Trans still dumping fluid from the breather tube, even after putting a vac cap with a tiny hole on it. Gotta find a solution for this.
Brakes worked excellent with SRF and DTCs, second half of the day got wheel vibe under heavy braking after a couple laps. Maybe pad deposits? Need to resurface the rotors and try again. Nothing obvious wrong.

And thats about it! LSD worked good, temps stayed perfect all the time. Need more tire but 225 RS-RR are good enough for now.
Actually got some video this time, albeit at a bad angle.

Next up is saving for a cage and then coilovers, and then I guess more tracking either in the summer (hot) or next winter.

Bought a new daily that sufficiently distracted me from this project
