Good seeing you too! I loved how you came out to the big track after Streets using the 245 rear spares with the 285 fronts! lol

We need to roll-on again with your good tires and without all the weight in your car....starting in 3rd for sure next time to remove the wheel-spin variable. I think it will be very close!

Was at the Star Car Sports Chuckwalla event this weekend. First time out there. Nice smooth track. And 40 feet wide!

E90 M3
Track/course: Chuckwalla CCW
Best Lap Time: 2:02.76 (Harry's Lap Timer with external GPS confirmed by GoPro)
Brakes: AP Racing - Mintex F3R front, Ferodo DS2500 rear
Tires: Hankook R-S3 - 18" - 265/285
Suspension: JRZ RS Pro in rear. Front JRZ is still off the car. This week Danny setup the front suspension with stock damper, H&R lowering springs and my old GC street plates. I was happy to have some camber again, and the H&R springs kept the front end low. Took a little while to get used to this new setup, but I got the hang of it after a couple sessions. I think I'll keep the car like this until the JRZ fronts return.
Other mods: VF620, MS Test Pipes

I was very happy as this is only my third time at a track and a first with my M3. Fastest time lap time was achieved was with an Instructor (Malek) on board. Fasted time with no passenger was 1:39.0. Shaved about 10 seconds off my initial lap Obviously a huge difference in knowing the lines and the entry/exit speeds!

Can't wait to go back when the conditions are better.
You were doing great out there Adam and seriously started picking up some speed!

I really look forward to the next time out there, hopefully in more favorable conditions this time.

ahah!

rear seats: I couldn't tell the difference to be honest. I really only pulled them off so that I could comfortably fit all my stuff without damaging them (couple of us did a little buttonwillow/laguna seca weekend and I like to bring spares, especially when going far!)

If anything right now I'm still getting used to running a square setup vs previous staggered setup. All things equal the rear is definitely more ready to step out and I have to use a little more care in high speed turns/sweepers. IDK if removing weight from the rear axle is helping at all ahah

Can't wait to see what you do with better tires. Nice work as always.

hahaha man, c'mon Ryan, where's the love?!! Wait a minute......is this really Ryan? Or did OC3 or minicorsa highjack your account??!!

You'll be proud of me Ryan. I ran some DSC off laps yesterday too, just to start getting a feel for it-----backed off of course. Felt good. No drama--2:09.

Have fun at Chuckwalla! Tell OC3 to put MDM back on so he can go faster!

I am proud! Now keep it off! Until then, we are assigning an 8 second handicap to all your posted times.

MDM on = cheating

Lol I kid I kid. But tracking with electronics correcting for you, applying brakes for you etc hinders your learning curve. You need to learn to do that yourself (Nissan GTR guys are you reading? )

With that said, Gabe, congratulations! I remember riding with you a little while back when you first started tracking. You have made TREMENDOUS progress! Hats of to you my friend!

Haha, just add a little bit to the GTR comment. Lots of people have misunderstanding about the GTR.
GTR is easy to drive fast, but hard to drive at the limit.
M3 is hard to drive fast at the beginning, but easy to drive at the limit once you manage it.
The best driver and a better than average driver in the GTR might have very less than 2 second in differences. However, it will have a huge gap in the M3.
Just my opinion though, adding some funs to the topic.

Thanks Kaiv!! Yeah, I think that was my second trip to Buttonwillow when you were instructing, and maybe only my 3rd track day ever. I learned quite a bit since then. As the year goes on, I'll be testing the waters more with DSC off. For now, I'm got some goals I want to reach with (Euro) MDM. Once I run the course of that, I'll back off and start working with DSC off more. Honestly, the laps I did with DSC-off last week went totally fine. (Euro MDM really is not much traction control to begin with.)

lulz, Gabriel, just bend over like an inmate and take it. I did. From April of '11 to April of '12, ran 30 track days in MDM mode. And, I heard it all. From all directions.

Then, in May of '12, went DSC off, and was frustrated for a while. Timing-wise, the coming summer heat only compounded things. If you decide to go DSC off, I'd suggest doing it when things are cooler and will remain cooler for a while. It'll be better for the ego, lulz. Anyhow, 8 months and 17 track days later, I know I'm happy.

With driver-mod, NT01 and the car setup pretty neutral, I'm having a blast besting my previous personal bests, but the track videos sure look boring now.

hahaha fair enough. I have a great time hangin' out with all you guys. I don't mind the ribbing at all.

47 track days? Awesome! I think Speed District's event this Saturday will be #24 for me.
