Thanks and agreed. James and Jason have kindly offered to re-check the M3 next spring before I attend Summit Point and start the 2013 Track Season. I plan on taking them up on that offer.

PSCs - keep hot pressure below 40 psi otherwise they'll get extremely greasy. With the SC you might need to keep the rear hot pressures a little lower.
Hey Donnie, yes, having fun! I have noticed PSC's are very sensitive to temperature and air pressure. This past weekend it was between 58 and 68 degrees (cool) and I achieved my best grip at 32 pounds. At 36 pounds on turn 5 and 7 I would end up drifting at the apex into track out.

How much lower are you than stock?

We need some pics of your E90 M3 with the suspension on!
Good point and when I stop traveling for work, I will post. I started with ZCP settings and the front is now a 1/4" lower (damn spoiler, rebuilt it 6 times already) and the rear is about 1/2" lower. Bimmrworld said they acheived their best corner balance and setting at thiis point.

Thanks again for clarifying! So it looks like these chassis perform best when not too low which is rather encouraging!

Looking forward to seeing more pics. Travel safely!
