The passing kind of sucked due to 2 370Z' got better. The other Z had some old dude in there that you'd follow through 2 passing zones, give a point by and then drag race you. I have to downshift to beat the guy to the next corner. I would almost coast from the Bus Stop to the Launch because he was sooooo slow. I even lapped him.

My last even at MSRC in Dec was a treacherous weekend in the rain. I really felt like that was a tremendous learning event although not the most fun. There were only 2 cars that consistently passed me...a GTR and a Lambo LP550-2. Otherwise, I was running people down into Diamond's Edge, through the sweeper into the Bus Stop and then from 15 to 16. You can say that a BBK doesn't shorten stopping distances...but I could consistently brake much later. Stoptech FTW!

The one thing I did work on was braking. I did a better job of developing a reference point on where to end my braking rather than start. It helped tremendously in smooting out my brake release. I'm sure the E9X M3 is similar...even when I came in a little too hot, I could get the car rotated since I didn't abruptly unload the front of the car.

Enough's a video of the last run...
