Nice time!
You assumed well... Thank you for the compliment. I was running mostly in 1'20"s but had a number of 1'19 and 1'18s when I really pushed it.

I love the rhythm of this track.

In which group were you running? A-solo?

Track/Course: VIR, Full Course
Best Lap Time: 2:13.82
Brake Pads: StopTech BBK 380/355; Pagid RS29
Tires (Size & Model): Nitto NT-01, 275/35/18 square
Suspension: GC camber plates -2.6F; stock struts & springs

They say that the Nitto NT-01s are best right before they cord. Well, I can attest to that--I had my 3 fastest laps of the weekend in the last session on a shredded right front tire. Good to the last drop!

Probably will after I get through these AD08's. Am really tempted by the NT01's and just hope for dry weather

You think RS3's are better than AD08's?

I shaved almost 2 seconds at laguna going from AD08's to R888's. They don't last long, but I like them a lot for the price.

I KNOW R-S3's are better than AD08's. By at least 2 sec's, if not 3.

Go for NT01's. They're better than R-S3's.

Yeah, 10-4 on stock brakes. This is a little clip from back in Nov 2011 entitled "OC3 needs BBK." Couldn't quite make that turn 3... 2 weeks later, I put on Brembo's.

That was an awesome little detour though!

Best Lap Time: 1:25.2
Brakes: Stock, StopTech Street Performance Pads
Suspension: stock
Tires (Size & Model): stock PSS 245F 265R
Other Mods: Akra slip on


4th HPDE. Run groups were limited to 15 cars (it ended up being more like 10, even 5 towards the end of day 2) so there was plenty of open space. It did rain a bit in the last part of both days but it was fun weekend overall. Not sure what a good time at Roebling is for a stock M3, but the car still has plenty to give, just needs a driver mod

Very nice Bill!! I'm very jealous!!! Did you feel a difference with the BPM tune? Looks like there is an improvement on your top speed down the straights!

Yeah the tune feels good. I'm going faster thru the climbing esses and exiting Oak Tree. Still a couple more seconds left on the table to be plucked next time. When are you coming back to USA?

I experimented with an external mic on the license plate to get a little more aggressive audio. Still needs more cowbell though...
