I'm not expecting miracles, just something that will help me put the power down sooner in a corner.

Also ordered a Fall Line Motorsports tow strap with a tow-hook cover with a slot for the strap. Someone swiped (or it fell off somehow on the drive down to Chuckwalla) my tow hook cover so I have a gaping hole in my bumper I went to remove it on Saturday and it was already gone. Wtf!

Talked with my shop about getting an upgraded oil cooler + radiator, maybe with some custom ducting, to attack my cooling problem. Going to do that first before tackling the DCT cooler, maybe this will be enough. Shop talked about perhaps mounting better ducting or a fan on the DCT cooler, before upgrading.
we need more in B2.

I don't know how my car a family sedan with only coilovers and clubsports is in a class with the same car with up to TDs and BBK. Now I need those.

TD's will be my next set of tires.

Hardwired it into the CANBUS, player! I originally went OBDII (wife got me the OBDII kit originally), but that's kinda useless.

I dismounted a set like that when I mounted my "new to me" Maxxis RC1s, and my mechanic was like "dude are you going to toss that? Can I have it?" I exchanged them for free mounting/dismounting.
+1. Run them until they cord then a bit more.

LOL, I didn't mind. I spent a lot of time in limp mode on Saturday, so I didn't have any power - and I tried to let people by as much as I could. You pretty much beasted everyone in the class in that blue Z4M!

I figure I'll do the best I can on stock suspension and these new springs. It's very hard to put the power down any faster than I am without the car going into a slide.

Was going to do MCS 2-way suspension this year, but I figure I'll postpone my plans unless I'm absolutely not competitive in B3.

QFP was huge for setting consistent lap times and reducing fatigue. After two days of buttonwillow with stock 3-point OEM seat belt, my knees were in agony from hitting the side of the door arm rest.

I don't doubt good seat would be worth it!!

Should go to a BMW CCA club race or PCA club race, where the racers bring their girlfriends to the track.

Plenty of woodies at those track events. Not sported on cars, but there's plenty.

I was happy with the oem seats before I started tracking. It's getting to the point that bracing myself against the dead pedal is taking away from my focus a little bit.

Macguyver'd a solution to not being able to pass lap belt of QFP through hole in recaro.

My logic is that it's an oem piece so should be strong and it is the same thickness as the VAC adapter that goes under the floor mount so it should be fine.
