The last run was crazy. Half the track was dry and half was wet.

But...for the first time in 5 months and 1 day...my car got me to the track, completed 2 days and got me home. Quite happy!

And TWS PDS was like M Club part deux...me, Thundermoose, Pizzapie, and the doc were there. Some carnage from today...I stayed in the car

Did you drop a right side wheel or just lose the back end. MSR followed by TWS, sounds like a good weekend.

Dropped the right side. I went in full throttle. It was going good until track out. I didn't give it enough throttle to rotate the car with slip angle after the apex. Should have just pinned the throttle to the floor...I would have made it.

Then I was indecisive...try and save it? Or go off straight? I tried to save it...wrong answer.

Here is some more relevant footage...

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

THanks guys for a great time. THis was my first time out there - and even though I didn't get to drive I rode along with a couple people and had a freaking blast. Definitely going to get my car ready for the track for any future events.

I trust everyone struggled to be a good citizen on the way to work this morning?

As soon as Mommy's Time Out gets on its feet, I'm there!

You coulda used another '46 to class up the place. Maybe a red one. Hey did JJ bring out his new monster?

In for the vids (and the bragging).

Really likes the instructors, Richard was a great reference to start learning the track. Also, a very nice group of people to share the track with. Thanks.

Ha!

She did have fun. (especially that fishtailing in the water entering the front straight/grandstand!)

I did request of her to NOT ask about anyone's horsepower-to-weight ratio.

Seriously, I'm grateful that we found two nice people to let her experience on-track fun. Thank you!

ROFL. Riiiight. She can utilize that B.B.A. in International Business, after May 2013, to accomplish that particular purchase.

Here are some pics if the current state of my tires which would explain why I was sliding everywhere. It always rains when my tires get bald.

James,

Looking at the second picture it appears that the inside of your tire is worn. How much camber are you running?
