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

For those that asked, I will set up one of these dropbox things for images. I am travelling 3 of the next 4 weeks, so it will be a month, but I will do it.

I can also bring a laptop to the next event and let folks copy to USB drives, etc.

Feening for track time!!!

Man I'm feening for some track time. I feel like a Track head! "Hey man you got some track on you?!" I've been signing up ayways I can, but everything is for the most part booked or the upcoming events posted haven't opened yet. Currently, I am on the stand by on some events, but I did managed to land TX2K track time ...

Oh I also managed to be confirmed for COTA in June!!!

I read today that tracking makes a heroin addiction seem like a vague yen for something salty

If you read it, then it must be true!

With the help of Todd Manus (M-Club videographer), I figured out how to use Dashware to overlay my Solo DL data with GoPro video. Here is my third attempt at doing that. I think I am getting the hang of this.

I had a blast at MSR and of course meeting good people and thanks for your help by the way. I got bit by the bug before I even tried it out, so now I'm feening for track time.

I will be attending a couple of events. On March 14th at the TX2k Texas World Speedway, April 27, 28 Lone Star BMWCCA at motorsport Ranch cresson and May 17-18 Driver's Edge @ Texas World Speedway again and COTA in June 7. So just a few events. I tried to get in others, but wasn't able to make the list. I made the list for some and forgot about them and James had to remind me about it!

Also I might be moving to South East Houston here soon, So I look forward to seeing some of you guys out there.

Nice lap! Damn you learn quick!

If you want fun take the inside line over the launch. If you've got the balls...it can be pretty fast too! Basically you go over the launch turning and as the car "lands" on the back side you plant the car on the left side tires for the grip. Make sure you're smooth on the control or you'll be doing pirouettes into green pastures. But its really cool because the car feels so light and really weird when it comes over the back side of the hill sideways. Haven't really experienced that on any other track I've been on.

NP! Anytime! Wow! That's quite a line up. I guess you really did get bit by the track bug!

Thanks Jae! I thought about that line, but did not have the balls, as you put it. Maybe next time.

Lol...try it at 7/10ths first and then work your way up. You won't need the large nut sack until you get to 10/10ths...hell, I'm not even there yet!

It is difficult to get it consistently as it requires some timing. There's more variables since the car is turning. I get different amounts of grip and varied car trajectory. But it's more fun.

OK, I'll have to try that next time. I increased my front camber to -2.7 and decreased rear camber to -1.8, so this will make it more tail happy. What camber are you running on your E90?

Lol...I was running -2.5 front and OEM rear specs. Probably could have used a llittle more rear camber.

Testing the dropbox thing.

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/lu79pfzz6tl7lm3/39Ob_NCayz

If this works, I will begin loading pics onto it. If you asked for me to do this, let me know if you can see the test pic. If so, I'll load a few high res, RAW images to make sure you can still get at them. You will need a viewer to open them.

Thanks

that's my other car.

seriously, that was the test pic. since that worked, I will start dumping full size RAW images there. I only ask one thing. nobody can use any to make any money. no selling them, etc. nobody uses any for profit. other than that, have fun in photoshop or lightroom.

I just started uploading 95 shots to drop box. That is about 2GB which is my limit. I will leave these for one week, remove them, and then put up another 2GB worth of pics. I think I have 8GB, so it will take 4 times at a week each for everyone to get what they want.
