Saturday is starting to look soggy, too - bummer. I hope I get to use my new wheels and NT-01s. I installed my Pagid yellows and new felt under tray last night.

Bringing rotors for Bigjae - no reminder needed.

Ok, I'll be pretty busy fri and sat. Don't plan on driving much on Sun so I'll try and stop by then.

I will be there as well, although sadly for only Friday. Just enough time to get some pictures of my car at the track

I'll be there Sat and Sun. Anybody want to guide me through removing the front alignment pins and getting some extra camber while I'm there?

Doing my anti-rain dance.

I'm happy to muddle through this with you as I need to do it as well - just picked up ARC-8s with NT-01s! Instructions in the DIY section. Will this effect the toe-in and will we need an alignment?

I'm in a Sparkling Graphite e90 - no garage. What are you driving? I'll look for you tomorrow morning.

White E90, no garage, with the 18" grey wheels. Thanks, I think it should be super easy to do. I've done major suspension work before (I put M3 suspension including rear subframe bushings on my 335i when I had it), but it still makes me nervous working on my dream car :-).

More camber will increase toe out. You need to adjust toe to get it right.

Camber plates are the way to go. You're going to eat the outside of your tires with anything less than -2.5 degrees up front.

Awesome the weather held out.. wasn't perfect Sunday with the wind but definitely a great weekend. After chatting with instructors from several different groups .. I was surprised that we are the only outfit running an HPDE at COTA that actually has the "E"..... Instruction. Every one else is just running lapping days on what is one of the most technical courses in the country. Interesting!

We actually ended up getting in nearly every one that was wait-listed, and allowed some people that previously just had partial weekends to do additional days. I am not sure if RCKehrer got in or tried but I hope so.. . Gotta stay the course!

For those that did not make it this year, we definitely will work with COTA to do more events in the future, and have a tentative agreement in place for Trifecta III around then same time in March 2015.

Keep in mind that we give priority registration for those that have attended events in the prior year. For 2015, the first qualifying event is our Spring DE one month from now at MSR Cresson April 25-26.

I had a great time! All of my students did great! Perfect weather and meet quite a few forum folk.

But I do have one request for M3Adjuster...can you go over those passing zones again?

I am still digging through my old college math books to figure out how the four 25 minute sessions that were converted to three 30 minute sessions (to give us more track time) really turned into three 25 minute sessions. Interesting math.

Track time was cut short.
