Whoaaa! Is right love seeing the videos from other cars. The e36 definitely closed the gap in the breaking zones, and you got a bit squirrelly on exit at one point looks like a lot of fun. Man is your winter different than mine

Yeah, I was cutting it close there all weekend. Right on the edge of that extension of the track. I was putting half of the left tire right over the just crease. I gave it a little too much throttle about 2/3 through the turn and I understeered off the apex. That line was pretty fast...the bad part is it gives you zero room for error especially if you miss the apex.

I've been working on using more and more of the track, being more precise about getting right next to the curbs, and turning in earlier. I'm shocked at how being a half a tire width closer to the edge gives you so much more speed through the entire turn.

Unfortunately, this resulted in two of my tires getting a chunk taken out.
