When you get to that level, I guess the only other thing left to do is an $8000 wing.
Not really sure how much driver mod he had though...
This is key. Whenever I think about doing a performance mod to the car to improve track times, I remember the lead-follow exercise we did at a Lime Rock Skip Barber school four years ago. I was driving one of the school's E92 M3s, following an instructor driving a Mazdaspeed 3. I couldn't match his pace if my life depended on it. Show-off.
