Not really. The car runs much better at the track without it. I go with what works best for me, not what impresses everyone on the forum.

Yea session 7 was the best because a lot of people left. See you around at the track.

In any case, beautiful set-up and exactly how I hope to have my car done some day. I think the wing makes sense in this car since it's really a track focused / used set-up and not for daily driving "show".
When the lower splitter is fully extended there's a lot of space in front of the duct opening. But the splitter is blocking all of the direct air that used to flow into them. I just left them on since they can only help even if just a little bit and they don't get in the way at all.

Can you elaborate about the supercharger and the track, and why you felt going back to NA was better? I believe you but just wondering your take on it as probably the only one I can think of that has not commented that stock was better than the supercharger

I linked to the thread which explains my reasons in the first paragraph of this thread. But the idea that superchargers are bad on the track isn't a proven fact or anything. It's just my experience based on the setup I had as well as what I've seen from other cars at the track. I need to do what works best for me.

Awesome video, and I love the real-time data that accompanies it. I was just driving Laguna Seca in GT5 last night too.

Oh sorry about that, I didn't see the link. I will go check it out. Thanks for the quick reply and I am with you, I will never supercharge this car and its my personal choice. I think the best qualities of this engine are in the fact its a high-revving NA screamer. Personally I feel if you want a FI engine than get a platform that was designed around it. Not that this platform does not do great with a supercharger, but rather just my own wierd thought process. That is why I will get the next m3 and play around with FI fun but keep this proper NA car for a proper NA track and street experience!
