Nice that you put that up as I am going to thunder next week ( only been there once so I don't remember it very well). Didn't run the chicane then, but it looks interesting.
Glad you got loose of the slower cars after the first couple of laps ( I hate trains).

First time at this track...could of went faster but started to rain.

Hey Joe,

Jan here. That was a fun day. Can I get a little credit JK.

I see at least 2 seconds if you don't have your wife in the car and there is a lot of speed wasted on track out in a some corners: 2, 5, 6, 8, 10.

We should go again and I bet you do a 1:53 and I wouldn't be surprised with a 1:52.

I will have my new suspension in so we could do an M3 battle: E36 vs. E92. I'll have to do something special to go as fast as you. I could only do a 1:57 and I don't see new suspension getting me 4 seconds.

Jbass, we've got to do an ast vs jrz comparison! We'll start with e90 vs e36, and the outcome will help me decide which to go with on my e36.
And yes, the right suspension will net you 4 seconds.

So I have to run a 1:53 at Sears next time or I'm doing something wrong .

You just need to drive my car and form your own opinion. Maybe you can take it out or a session at next NASA. You could also come and take it for a drive on public roads but that's not as fun.

Well, it was not my quickest of the day, which was 7:55.8, but unfortunate the SD card was full already
Had to back up a little since a Ferrari 458 was a total loss in "Kesselchen", so it was real slippery

nice man. How often do you go out there? Those are very good times!

I'm currently trying to get some track tires, but it seems more involved than I expected. Will probably need to get new wheels, then tires (I was told dunlop durreza), then store tires at the ring... whew, a lot of expenses.

Sup Jan! I give you A LOT of credit for lowering my times

If my wife wasn't in the car maybe like .5 second...LOL

Yea I looked at the video and I know I can go faster in a lot of the other corners...first time there.

I'll let you know when I go back to Infineon! I love that track...I just came back from Laguna Seca and did a 1:44 over there but I still likes Infineon way better

Schedule the next day in August with Trackmasters and I will too.

No problem with sounds at Laguna? I hear (get it? ) they lowered the limit to 90 db.

Hmmm! I may take you up on that.

I had MASSIVE amounts of sound trouble I had to cut my RPi x pipe and put glass packs in but STILL did a 94db (limit 92) so I had to short shift at 6k

2008 E92 M3 6MT
Track/Course: Laguna Seca
Best Lap Time: 1:45.2
Brakes: Stock w/ Stop Tech Street Pads and SRF Fluid
Tires (Size & Model): RS3 275/35/18 square
Suspension: JIC/Cross Coilovers
Other Mods: Euro MDM

Have bumper cam from fastest lap but need to find it and post. Attached is video from a 1:45.4. Lots of places to get faster -- probably should use 2nd gear through Turn 2, traffic stuffed entry onto straight (T11) at beginning and I blew it at the end of the lap, letting off too early going into T2 and T8, etc. Hopefully at least a 1:44 next time (if not faster!)

Oh and Harry's Lap Timer was so freaking buggy Nonstop problems, with and without external GPS (waste of $100 given the unreliability of Harry's.... PLUS the $20 app cost). Was very frustrating This was without external GPS (why speed is erratic) because I stopped getting ANY video or timing when using it. Luckily I paid $20 for timing for the weekend so I got my real times for each session...

^Very nice!

All I could manage when I was there was a 1:46.9 (well according to Harry's anyways). In my defense it was unusually hot for laguna

Still had fun though!

2011 E90 M3 DCT
Track/Course: Laguna Seca
Best Lap Time: 1:45.021
Brakes: Brembo BBK with Endless ME20 pads
Tires (Size & Model): NT01 275/35/18 and 275/40/18
Suspension: PSi Raceline kit (Ohlins)

Less than a second faster than my best effort on RS3s, stock suspension, and Stoptech pads a few months ago (1:45.86). Need to dial in my new suspension and dial in the driver for the suspension.

Will post a vid of a 1:45.3ish lap later. Didn't get my fast lap on video.

Great to meet you, Ryan! It's astonishing how close our lap times were in each and every session.

You too! Was disappointed we didn't get to grid up near each other any of the sessions; looked like you were reliably a few tenths faster each lap (those we didn't get caught in traffic at least ) and would have been awesome to see where I could pickup some more time. Next time! And glad the lug worked out.. I should have given you a few extras as spares... though I would seriously look into a stud conversion

BTW -- are you using an Emprum GPS with Harry's Lap Timer? (I thought I saw that setup in a vid of yours). I tried it for the first time at Laguna -- worked fine for like two sessions and then it just stopped picking up lap times (or would get a max of the first or second of a session...). Finally "solved" the issue by going back to the internal GPS... but the speed/G readings are abysmal and the laptimes are less accurate (Harry told me I got a 1:44.7 and I was STOKED... until I saw the actual time sheet )
