Nope, it's a very tight course, so the speeds don't really get up there.

Last year the norm was 5-80km/h, and that high end is only during the slalom portion. Very tight.

In the slalom you might get up to 70-75?

No higher then mid 2nd gear, and most is in first. That said it's harder then I'm making it seem.

Here is a quick video:

Also, the course does change from month to month.

I love the ending to that video. Next time when I hook my camcorder up to your car, make your verbal comments more dramatic

This isn't looking good for me, the modded 3 / M class is going to be a toughie.

Soup anyone?!

I'm going to ginx myself... but the Coupť has had some Campbell's poured into'er!!!

Koni's with H&R's, Conti Sport Contact 2's (not as bad as I thought they would be!!!), and B&B exhaust.... oh... and 315bhp!! (for now... as I have Jim C.'s chip on order... will be pushing 329ish bhp with re-mapped throttle soon enough.)

The biggest problem, where I felt like I had an okay grip my old 328is for the most part... this new car is a BEAST.. I'm still trying to tame it!! Practice Practice Practice.

Sunday couldn't come any sooner...

Cheers,
MJL.

nope, I'm thinking of just staying in 2nd...

9000 RPM limit and there's a LOT of torque with that diff.

Ah, but remember, it sounds like this class system is a thing of the past. With the new system, we actually stand a chance.

Oh yeah. That's not any better, you stand a chance. My car is modded to hell, I'm going to have a nice handicap.
