I tried new lines in some corners this week and I was able to improve my lap times by about half a second. From the couple of vids I took, I saw a few laps in the 1:55s with my fastest at 1:55.53 .

PS, love how M3s lift their front wheel coming out of turns , look at the E36 right at the beginning of the video .

I was there but not instructing. My friend was, he has the same color car and similar setup but has the Dinan Stroker motor in it, so his times are, (ahem), somewhat quicker than mine.
