I'd say around a second per lap. The real impact is on durability. The PS2s got all mushy after about 10 minutes of hard driving.

Unfortunately, you are correct. It is not a forgiving track. That's why I won't turn DSC off when I don't have track insurance.

I'm pretty sure he was running 8x10 Forgeline wheels with 275/35-18 BF Goodrich R1s all around.

The wheels look nicer than I expected. The car also had Supersprint exhaust and H&R springs. He really smoked past me on the straight in the vid partially because I lifted to let my instructor go as well, who was behind him. I didn't get a chance to time him from the sidelines. That would have been informative as to what a tricked out M3 with a pro driver can do.
