Here's some footage of me going off track during one of my first sessions. Was pushing it a little too hard. Most definitely learned from it though and especially the 4 hour clean up that ensued afterwards. -__-

He sold me the stuff off of another web site, e46fantatics.com, and has been kicked off for ripping me off.

I would advise anyone to not buy stuff from this person, because he took me for alot of money.

Thanks and please send me a message with any and all information you can provide that I can give the police.
Why you posting here?

looks like you may have easily been able to ride that one out if you had kept the car moving forward instead of slamming on the brakes...thereby keeping ahead of that massive dirt cloud that entered your car

Those are great pics! I saw them when they came into the pits and they were covered in dirt from top to bottom.

No. I experienced lots of moment like that. I knew he was going to spin out, so I put my helmet down and put my back to the window side. LOL

Long time ago, a passenger lifted my e-brake in GTR while I was doing 120 mph+ LOL.

^^ Yeah! The first I do after that was put a proper roll bar in my car. LOL!
Whoever has been in my GTR, they knew that the first thing I would say is: don't lift the e-brake, it's not handle. The second thing I would say is: if you don't feel comfortable, just hit my arm.

^ Yes. I'm pretty much max out the chassis potential on the M3. There's only 1 second left on the M3 with my driving skill. Corner balance, alignment, wing angel, and chassis tune up will give me the last second which put the car in 1:55. If I ever wanna go below that, I need more power, less weight, or stickier tires.

For GTR though, I can run 1:55 all day with just oem shocks on NT05's.
