Just wondering. How do you think your time would be with DCG rather than 6sp? Faster?

Would definitely be faster, but I have no idea by how much. There are a few places where I wish I would be in a lower gear, but would risk upsetting the car if I did. With that said, I wouldn't trade for it because driving a manual at the track is just so much fun and rewarding.

Fantastic video and driving skills. Your car has excellent turn in. Mind sharing what suspension and alightment settings? What tires are you running on? Thanks in advance

You were really moving out there. It was fun to see an M3 keep up with all the McLarens.

Sure I've been to Infineon and Thunderhill a few times, but I'm pretty slow at those tracks. (see sig)

I'm an instructor at Skip Barber racing school up at Laguna, great job for the most part with your line (other than your turn 2 could use some work).

However you're lifting off the brakes too intensely, its causing the weight to transfer too quickly and you could get on the throttle a little smoother. Slow the weight transfer down, It'll help the E92 immensely. It'll allow you to carry more speed into corners without the loss of traction.

Hope that helps
