Awesome job!

He ran a 1:54 yesterday, just a regular big back wing and the gts replica front lip. Added a supercharged a couple days ago and ran a 1:54 yesterday. Only back seats and trunk liner pulled out. Nothing else.

Correct. The 55 was NA, 54 SC'd. His first day with it so more time on the table

I took it out for 2 laps and ran a 58 (first time driving it). Car is unreal. I fuckin hate my car now. ;(. The KW's are unreal. I think 4 way adjustable clubsports. The brembos are like running into a brick wall. Fuck my life

I met Cody and Riff at the Speed Ventures BW track day. Their cars were both NA when they ran those times. It was nice meeting them and checking out their cars

Cody's best that day was a 1:55.599. E92 M3 w/ rear wing and front splitter. Also had two Recaro SPG seats, exhaust, KW CS I believe, Brembo BBK, and Hankook Z214 C71 tires.

Riff did a 1:58.714. E92 w/ rear wing and front splitter. Full OEM interior, exhaust, JRZ RS Pro's, Brembo BBK, Hankook RS-3's.

Club sports are only double adjustable.

They do make a 3-way adjustable but I am not aware of 4-way.

Clubsports are 2-way adjustable. There are 2 and 3-way adjustable motorsports dampers. We run 3-ways on the FXMD NSX.

Nope- they make both a 2-way and a 3-way version of the clubsport. The standard version is 2-way. I have the 3-way version on my car so I can confirm it actually exists... The Clubsport 3-way version came out a few years ago and adds high speed compression adjustment and expansion reservoirs. See the links below

I stand corrected. Didn't know they made a 3way with the shift to the knobbed adjustable dampers.

Nice run Dogbone, some very consistent times. I'm looking forward to getting out to Buttonwillow this weekend as it'll be only be in the low/mid 60s. My goal is still a sub 2 lap but reasonable goal is sub 2:03 this weekend.

Thanks guys!

I agree, recording the M3's exhaust on a track is rewarding because it ends up sounding pretty cool. It's a pretty urgent and aggressive sound.

Yeah cool weather and low turnout is my ideal kind of day. Next weekend in the 60's should provide some more ideal conditions! I'll be at Auto Club. Have fun!

LOL - Time to get into a m3. There was 43 cars there for the day. We normally have 50-55. The max we ever had was 62. Not that big of a difference but normally do run really empty events.. My loss is your gain
