Glad to have met Dbl_Trouble some of you in Group 1.
I need to bring a lighter car or more front tire pressure and more camber next time.
I was behind you on the track several times. I was really impressed with how well that huge car handled the track. Seeing it from behind was awesome, the body roll was hilarious. I almost didn't want to pass you so I could keep watching. Good work!

OMG you guy's are so killing me!!!!!! It was hard enough listening to your cars all day from the registration tent for the show, and now hearing how much fun you all had!!!!

I even missed the parade lap session for everyone in the show cause 10 cars showed up when that happened!!!

It was great to have you observe and point out how the car behaved and what to do to correct it for smoother runs. I found the length and weight of the car actually made the slalom and 180 a lot of fun. It was definitely a lot of fun to have be able to consistently have it slide, almost drift around the cones. After getting a hang of how the car reacts and slides, I really appreciate how well balanced and controllable these big BMWs are.

I had wanted ot push it to its limit (or my limit of being able to handle it) around turns with a lot of turn in and/or exit speed just to see how much trouble I can get into. I finally got into a rhythm and got to know the capabilities and handling of my daily driver.
What a blast.
Next time, I'll be there with an E34 to see what it can do.

Awesome pics. Now I have pics to remember the day.
I would love to see someone who drives better than I, drive it and push it to its limit. Perhaps fabricate a strut bar for the next time with lower springs and firmer shocks.
Thanks John and Jenn.

Richie, the instructors get to take their cars out, so perhaps next time, the club should let all the volunteers join the parade lap. It is the only fair thing to do
