E90 vs C5 Z06 @ Oregon Raceway

I'm constantly impressed by the M3, especially in nearly stock form:

Thanks for sharing. I too am impressed with your line and smoothness of your inputs.

Great line and great track! The nice thing is once you get it right going clockwise you can turn around and go counter clockwise. It is very challenging going both directions: many blind corners, blind crests, off camber.
Oh, nice job taking down the Z06..........in your stock (but camber plates) E90 M3!

Thanks for posting. Great elevation changes--looks like a fun track.

It was interesting to see your throttle position readout. At what was clearly 100% throttle, flat to the floor, the system was reading 75%. I have the exact same issue with my RaceKeeper system. I assume your system pulls the throttle data from the OBD port like mine does. I had my dealer service dept check the car, and my car runs at 100% throttle, so it has something to do with the way the throttle data is interpreted coming through the OBD port. A more direct CAN connection might end up being more accurate.

Yeah, obd reports 15% for zero throttle and 75% for WOT on every car I've tried.

ORP is probably the most fun and challenging track that I've driven!
