now we get some 50-60 degree days and still no rain if im lucky. perfect for making more power and better lap times, although im on a new set of nt01s so usually not as good til they get worn to shit.

Looks like a great time and what a pristine track! 35 minutes is a long time. I've done unlimited before and had to pull off around the 45 minute mark, was starting to look at the scenery, and you know what they say about where the car goes

see i dont get that when people say it. maybe i drive to slow but if im driving well i dont feel tense or fight the car. it feels smooth and easy the faster im going. it does help me to have a faster car to try and track down but i would go and drive all day by myself also and not care.

It was smooth and easy...so much so that I found myself resting my arm on the door on straightaways and watching the scenery go by...didn't help that there were only 3 of us out there...need someone to chase

There's going to be a track event coming up on Nov. 1st at my home track (Buttonwillow) where you can get 3 hours of track time for the day (3 groups that go out every 20 minutes for 9 hours). That will test my stamina. I've heard that by the afternoon it's basically an open track session with more than half the people gone.

thats how every day that i go to is. 20 minutes splitting the hour in 3 then by mid day half the people have crapped out.

interesting i was just at PIR last weekend. Hard to not notice the traction control being on, at least in my car it is almost undrivable. my e90 was similar in full on, mdm was okay.
