I guess I'll share some of my 2019 PBs so far, which I think are quite decent for a street car and stock power. (no weight reduction)

Sonoma Raceway 1:51.59
Start at 1:51
Stock power, stock full fat weight, 275 square NT01, JRZ RS One 550/800 suspension, Rotora BBK w/PMU 999 pads, Dinan FCAB monoballs + front sway bar


Thunderhill East (bypass) 2:00.066
Start @ 15:18
Stock power, stock full fat weight, 275 square NT01, JRZ RS One 550/800 suspension, Rotora BBK w/PMU 999 pads, Dinan FCAB monoballs + front sway bar


Laguna Seca 1:42.39
Stock power, stock full fat weight, 275 square NT01, JRZ RS One 550/800 suspension, Rotora BBK w/PMU 999 pads, Dinan FCAB monoballs + front sway bar, replica GTS front lip + rear wing
Was less than a tenth of a second faster than prior PB that was without the GTS bits.

Went out to Summit Point on Saturday. First time solo in my car. I still need to clean up my lines and get more consistent. I ran on my normal street tires instead of my track tires to force my self to slow things down and try to drive smoother.

Sorry bad video and sound quality and the OBD gadget didn't work. The removed mirrors made terrible air waves in the cockpit.

You got mad driving skills!

Set a new personal best at Summit Point on Saturday. Starting to get a lot more comfortable in the M3 with the new suspension/brakes/etc that I upgraded over the winter.

I was in yellow group as well. I was in the white e92 on Apex SM10s. I found my NT01s to be happy around 36-37 psi hot off the track.
It was extremely hot, in the second session I had to come into the pits after 15-20 minutes to let the car cool down some then go back out. Not sure if I can make the one in VIR but should be back in October at Main again.

Our group was huge so not surprised we didn't end up on the same section of track. I also plan to come back for the October event so hope to see you then.

Good video. Thanks for sharing. I have not run w Track Dayz yet and would appreciate feedback on the group. I mostly run with PCA and BMW CCA, but BMW only has one weekend at a Summit Main. Also tried SCCA for the first time this past weekend (Shenny), and had a good run. Good group of guys and slow holiday weekend helped. Here is a video from Saturday:

I really enjoyed running with track daze and will be running with them again for sure.

I normally run with BMW at Shenny and Main each year. I did Chapterfest earlier this season with BMW and did Shenny with MBCA. We are right around the same pace on that track, I too ran a 1:45

Thanks for sharing the video. Good lines very similar to mine. I hope to get into the 24s at Main this weekend. It is a bit aggressive and requires me to shave 1ish second off my time there for March, but if the weather and traffic cooperate, I should be able to do it. I am also going to test out my PSS tires vs the PS4s to see how much of a difference they make. They (PSS) had considerably less grip at Shenny, but I think that's because of the track more so than the tires. Stand by for that video!

Giving me something to work towards in a few weeks when I am back at main. I have the same suspension and about equivalent tires but weigh a bit more. My best is a 1.28, its cool to see your lines. Thanks for sharing.

My goal this year was getting sub 1:28 at Portland international raceway. My best time before today was a 1:28.5. I was chasing a friend in his Lotus Elise, with slicks on, while I'm in a stock power E46 M3 with street tires.

Action picks up at about the 6 minute mark, I smashed my goal of a 27.999 with a 27.779. And that's with a mistake or two. 26's are now in sight and Eddie Nakato @ AR says it'll do a 25.9 in perfect conditions.

My latest creation...MSR Houston. Car still needs a lot of detail work but she's coming along albeit very slowly lately.
