OOps I think that was my bad.... it was kind of sweet how the wheel was turned but she just plowed straight... but hey, I have new Super Sports on there now. Plus the lawn looks meticulous.

We'll go out again... I'll try to keep all four on.

When one wants a cabriolet, is there really any other choice than an M3? No. No, there's not.

Lol...just checking. It would be ironic how I complained, cried, and whined about going CCW and got my wish...then I missed the event.

Question...would the wheels on the car in front of me in this picture pass tech? They serve 2 purposes. First, I can punish anyone who attempts to pass me without scratching my paint. Second, they'll prevent my car from tipping over...in fact you should make all the vert drivers buy these rims.

No pokers or elbows on the track. How in the hell would you make it through turn 17 ........Phil

Those things would hit the concrete and prevent the actual car from hitting the wall. These could be like training wheels for track days!

Where does my engineering genius end?

I'm pretty sure that a few dozen of these cars drive around the streets in Houston at night, creating potholes. Thanks for clearing up one of the Great Mysteries of Modern Civilization!

OT...I finally got my twinscrew kit to idle nicely. It was the software. The new AA software engineer is pretty cool and much less difficult to deal with.

No, I don't fear anyone. I was just wondering so I know who it is that I'll be lapping 2 or 3 times a session.

Good news about the SC by the way. Hope it helps.

Don't give up. I'd talk to Zack at Mayco to see if he can talk to Zak at AA. I've found that AA is much more responsive, got my tune fixed within days.
