what were your times? Isn't a grand sport super fast?

Last time (my only time) at Laguna, an M4 GTS couldn't keep up with me.

Made me laugh at the thought of him maybe thinking: WTF

winning is winning
faster is faster
everyone said it wasn't cheating so I joined.

DSC Sport sells a controller that changes the MSRC programming. It's popular with the Camaro/Corvette/CTS-V guys.

Chevy updated the 2019s with a new calibration that it backwards compatible. I didn't see any substantial changes in my times when the dealer flashed it, but the ride quality and on-limit handling is much improved so I'd consider it a win for the $350.

I need to order new lug nuts for my Forgeline GS1Rs. McGard seems to be the popular choice but Gorilla has a slightly wider selection when it comes to finishes/styles. McGard actually makes the OEM lug nuts for my car.

What does everyone here run?
