I'm not sure about your times due to the different configurations, but try going onto track HQ and see what people are posting up there

all I know is with the heat from recently, times are definitely slower than times posted in the fall/spring

**were you at the speed district event at buttonwillow on the 9th? if so it was CW#13, not #1
Yes, thanks my mistake, I was there.

2:12 on a stock GT3 sounds pretty good, I think.

James, how much did the front aero help you when we went out last weekend? Just curious how much of a significant difference you felt.

Best Lap Time: 2:16.200
Brakes: Brembo BBK 365F 345R
Tires (Size & Model): OE Pirelli, 245F 265R
Suspension: JRZ shocks/Swift springs/Ground Control Camber Plates
Other Mods: intake, exhaust, tune.
I wish I still had my GT3 but I ran the 2:12 in my C63 p31 stock

At Buttonwillow, e92 M3's should be in low 2:00. Modded suspension + good street tires should get under 2 minutes.
100F + is only worth 2-3 second max

None so far. I'm sure I can do 2:01-2:02 in my car. Charles Ng should be able to get into 1:57-58 range for the least. I'll let him try next time.

if a Z06 and a GT3 are running 2:01's and a cayman s pdk is running 2:05 I would only expect a stock M3 to run around 2:05 ...It is a pretty technical course

i.e. at hockenheim the z06 and gt3 ran 2+ seconds fast than the M3, but the cayman s ran pretty much the same as the M3....and thats a 1:10-1:15 second lap

Charles Ng ran 1:56 in an 06 Z06 with brake pads and street tire. So Z06's and 997 GT3's are definitely capable of Hohn 1:50's

Here is a what a sub 1:56 looks like. The Lotus 211's are extremely quick around Button and the driver Andy has been leading the Lotus Challenge series.

He has really great lines around the course.

Its going to be for next year but the idea is still in our head to do it sooner. With that time we just did it is 1.5 seconds faster than our E46 M3 that is maxed out on T2 rules with Moton triples. If we had a fresh set of the Hoosier A6 instead of the BFG, and good set of shocks it would be even quicker withe the E92. The E92 M3 is going to kill us at runoffs.
