Thanks. I had several 1:56 laps and I didn't feel like I was trying to push it either. Track conditions were really good. Temps were cool enough that you had power but not so cool that tires weren't sticky. I started on the NT01's but they seem to be harder to get heat into so I swapped after 2 laps.

TDs are much stickier than the Nittos and easier to get to temperature.

Denis, what size were you using with the TD's? Options look fairly limited, either a 265/35 or a 285/30.

Nice time too!

I used the 265s. I actually like the fitment better than the 275s. With 275s, I have almost no clearance in the rear.

Are you using 18x10 et25 wheels? I've noticed that some E46M3s will rub no matter how much you roll the fenders unless you pull them while others (like mine) clear with very little rolling.

Nice times! HMSR CCW is super fun! I love the T1-T2 transition and the sweeper.

Nice driving! I had a 1:50:01 driving with you Sunday. Those last two sessions were a hoot!

See you at TWS next month.
