Thanks for the smooth comments!

Here is what "not smooth", "suddenly mashing the throttle", and "massive over correction" looks like...

you weren't the only one... the yellow S2000 went off in turn 7 on the out lap... which is viewed about the same. Major Faux Pas. Of course his was on a check ride as well.. doh!

I had a student that put two wheels off in 7 also on the out lap... tires weren't warm....

Dang...this is like peer pressure. I might bring out the M in Dec. Looks like the green group is filling up while the blue group is empty. I think I can get bumped up on the first day provided I don't royally screw up.

I hate having a long layoff between track events. It takes a whole day to shake the rust off. Like this past weekend. I didn't really start getting into a grove until the 3rd run on the 2nd day. This would be great...back to the track 3 weeks later.

But...this is getting expensive and then I'm not sure how much more patience my wife has. I'm scared to ask.

At least you weren't right behind him getting dirt and rocks flung at your car...which I've had happen in the past. I really needed a FusionM3 tape job at that point.

The painter's tape came in really handy a few times from a lap where disapr or m3roar was tracking out from turn 2.

I signed up for Dec. Hope to see you all again.

I want to but the M3 is still in garage queen mode for a couple more months. Then I would have to swap the pads, bleed the brakes, and get the alignment checked. My 330 is prepped and ready for the track already.
