2 C63's, M3, RS4, Moded 335

Wasn't sure where to post this, as it qualifies for the "M3 vs...", "M3 Videos" and "California" sections, but figured since it happened at the track I would throw it here...

We had a very fun track day on 11-11-11 with a lot of exotics and other fast cars showing up at Big Willow. Thanks to Shift Sector for organizing! It was half day road course, half day roll racing. We took vids of some of the runs that took place. Also I threw in my fastest lap of the day which is only 35 thousandths off the record for a stock M3 on this track . If I had a DCT instead of a Manual I would have beat it, but oh well...

2011 C63 vs. 2012 C63:


My M3 vs 2012 C63:


2012 C63 vs. 335 (highly modified):


My M3 vs B7 RS4 (the guy filming with my camera said he was a photographer and knows what to do, but I kinda doubt it after watching the way he recorded this video...):


And my fastest lap of the day:

Thanks for coming out man, awesome videos.

Just tonight we added a media forum to the shift-s3ctor website so everyone from the event can share each others vids.

It's at www.shift-s3ctor.com/forum when you get a chance to register and throw these up there

Thanks again for coming out!

PS: nice drift at 1:00 in the video! 1:36 is moving!

Haha, definitely man. I feel like Big Willow is more balls than power. I think my fastest of the day was a 1:38 because I was always too sketched out going into turn 8 deep into the triple digits.

With turn 8 you just brake less and less every lap until you are comfortable taking it without braking. When you are, just release the gas and use the turn in to slow you down. I don't know for sure, but you might have no choice but to slightly brake on 8 with such a powerful car as the Z06...
