TWS - broke 2 minutes!

I know, its non-E9X M3 material but I finally broke 2 minutes at Texas World Speedway in my 330! It all finally came together. As an added bonus, I got to drive MY car home! Between the alternator pulley, tensioner pulley, busted oil coolers, bad crank sensor, bad MAF, running hot, and software issues...I think we're good now. Quite the adventure from fireball to now! Thanks to Mayco Performance in Houston, TX. Despite numerous OEM parts issues they stuck by their work and warrantied everything without question. They drove an hour to pickup my car on July 4th when the alternator died. The owner let me drive his car on the track when my alternator pulley nut went missing. They busted their asses at the track to fix my car when there was an issue. Even this last episode with the alternator pulley nut coming off. That could be blamed on a spin at HMSR where I stalled the car...they replaced the alternator with no questions asked.

I will admit there have been times of serious doubt and frustration but I think (and hope) all is good.

A big thanks to Dan for letting me drive his car home when mine died twice!

So here's the video...
