Yeah I hear you. I do feel like I was entering some turns hotter and carrying more speed. But need to look over both vids side by side. Car feels great. It's also summer now and everyone is slower.

Substantial weight differential helps also. My e90 was stock suspension and brakes so not really apples to apples.

I just posted corner balance thread

Was 3714 vs 3558

Obviously you stripped your car. So the comparison for us seems quite different.

Yep my e46 is stripped interior, carbon blank. Need to still pull excess wiring and hvac but that's about it. That weight makes huge difference.

Buttonwillow 2:04:9
E46 M3 Manual
KW CS
NT01

Extremely hot today...a bit disappointed compared to my E92 times but I think once winter arrives I should get closer.


**my buddy's friend took his 100% STOCK F80 M3 and ran 2:03:4 (never even adjusted tire pressure, went up to 46-48psi)

E46 Vid




And a nice big spin over Phil Hill!

OEM tires on the F80? If so that's a great time.

No limp mode. He did say he felt like the car wasn't pulling as hard after some laps

Most likely from the turbo having heat soak.

I think I left at least a second on the table.
Never ran the old surface in this car. Previous Buttonwillow lap times w e46m3 and e90m3 on 1st page of this thread.
I've heard ppl say new repave is worth 1-2 seconds ....but not confirmed.

Maybe someone else can chime in to confirm or dispell.

From what I've seen, when they repaved Cotton Corners a couple years ago-----immediately following that sectional repave, Cotton Corners was slower. Everyone was sliding around in Cotton Corners right after the repave. But a couple months later, the pavement fully "dried out" and people had laid some rubber down, and then it was great to run through there after that.

From that experience, I'd say that the repave of the whole track is going to be generally the same. And from what we're hearing from the Speed Ventures event, it seems to be the case. It sounds like people were sliding around quite a bit out there at the SV event.

My guess is by October, the track will be getting in good shape---the track will have cured, some rubber will be down on it and the weather will be more friendly so the track surface temp will be cooler for better grip, and the friendlier weather will be kinder to our engines which will keep our power levels up. At that point, people should start to improve on their previous Buttonwillow times.
