Thunderhill Videos

Here are a couple of Videos from Thunderhill.

Weather was about 85F, which for Thunderhill was quite good. Turns out the M3 will overheat though in traffic. First few laps are of the race chasing the Caymans, but I started overheating and had to back off and drop back. The bouncing under braking is from what I can only describe as the worst "warped" rotors / bad bad transfer I have ever had. It was violent. New rotors on the way.

Thats a lot of traffic, is that with nasa? I miss thunderhill, it has a good flow. Whats preventing me are the stock brakes too until i get a set of bbk. Once i get a good rythem then i wouldnt want to stop just to cool off the brakes.

Checkered Flag Racing Association. They do anything from HPDE all the way up to wheel to wheel. This was from their race group.

Overheat? DCT? I've done 105+ weather days at T hill with and without a non-intercooled S/C and never had overheating problems (6MT).

Nice driving. Were you just running in the race group or were you participating?

Most of the vid you're in the 4-6000 rpm range. The last few gear changes you're barely getting to 7k rpm. At least in the first video, that's what I noticed.
