Wow jabela, that is amazing! Great videos, after watching your line through a few of the corners I can see where I'm losing some time, but not near enough to get anywhere even close to you! Seriously impressive.

Thanks, I really felt on the ball that day. Amazing what a good night's sleep will do

You're line in the video looked pretty good.
Some things to think about are to straighten out the chicanes, widen the corners, and try to late apex corners before straights. Also try and get as close to the cones as you can. You should be hitting some occasionally if your getting close to them. Also you can play with your tire pressures to improve grip and balance. Good high performance summer tires help too. Were you on winter tires?

Thanks! I will try playing with tire pressures, but without really knowing what I'm doing it's tough. This is my daily driver (70 MPG) and so I just kept the tires at 40 like I always run. They are just cheap motomaster 175/70/13 all seasons. Do I basically want to widen most corners, or are there some where staying tight is better?

I run 40/32 psi front/rear on my 3300 lb car, so you could probably go quite a bit less on yours. Your tires are pretty tall though, so just reduce pressure until you start rolling onto the sidewalls. That should give you max grip from the tires.

Thanks t.dot. Where have you been? Haven't seen you in a while.
I just bought some coilovers so I'll be moving to STX class when I install them and I'll probably be slower while I figure them out.

I signed up for baseball this year, and it's taking up my Sundays. I'll try to make the Bimmercruise event.

What coils did you go with?

I went with the ISC N1 from bimmerworld. Hopefully they're decent.

I didn't class him so I'm not sure. What mods does he have?

Just an S52 swap as far as I know. I would think he'd be in SM.
