Installing the dead pedal today... and the paint chipped off pretty easy where I scratched it by accident with the edge of the pedal. So much for my thoughts in Armor Coat being a better brand... its no better than that garbage Tremclad IMO. Sigh*

Anyone care to throw in some suggestions? POR 15 sounds like the obvious answer, but I don't really feel like ripping the entire car down back to a shell just to paint it. Anything else out there that is even slightly more durable that this junk I'm buying?

Since this car is on the road to completion, it made sense that it would be time to look into licensing, so back in March, I decided to go ahead and look into racing schools so I'd be eligible to apply for a Regional license, and work up the ladder. At first I had applied with the CASC school, but literally a few days later, I learned that BMW Club's race school would now be a recognized school in the eyes of CASC, so I decided to jump ship and do that school instead. I think the in-class portion was a bit lacking in comparison to the CASC school... but then again, I knew all that stuff since I've been exposed to racing all my life, so it didn't bother me one bit. I was more concerned with seat time, and the actual experience of the on-track exercises since it was something I personally haven't had the chance to do yet. And the on-track exercises did not disappoint! I have to admit, dicing with one car that has similar speeds at a lapping day isn't the same experience as having a bunch of cars around you, some with insane speed differentials too!

So anyways, lately I haven't been spending enough time on the 2002 because I got a new car recently, and it was my noble steed for the weekend... and what better platform than one that I am very familiar with, so E30 it was! Over the past few weeks, with some basic mods and a bit of maintenance, it (to my surprise) somehow transformed into a pretty potent car. But I have to look at the real picture, and that means at my driving... and even I impressed myself with how well I adapted to driving in such close proximity to other cars. I think a few of the biggest points that became apparent/that I learned is how much trust is needed to go door handle to door handle with somebody... Another would be how much my concentration level mattered (being calm seemed to help me make split second decisions a lot easier instead of being jumpy and tense like at the starts), and also how much more vision is required when in an environment like this.

Anyways, enough rambling... enjoy the show!

Great stuff Rudy. You only seemed to ever get passed on the back straight, so that says something. Keep it up, I'm sure there's a couple of cars in your garage that would have lapped that field. Twice! How's Mosport looking withe new additions? Keep it up!

I see you love taking the outside line! Good for you for having the nachos for that!

That C63 sounded so badass.

Thanks! Only the E30 guys that get excited over those! It was one of the selling features of the car for me when I went to see it

Thanks buddy! Mosport is looking great, the removal of concrete patches and the new pavement make for some very interesting lines, especially in the wet. Very grippy. The track facilities are looking good too, although I fear it will drive the prices out of hand in the next few years. Get on the GP track and experience it while you still can!

Thanks Eddie! I was surprised how well it worked earlier in the day when we had the practice starts session... so I figured why not do it more often! It really takes some trust to know that the person beside you knows you are there!

Lol. I hate that backstraight... Everyone drives by like I'm stopped then I got all the work to do again!
