Took my M5 to the track yesterday. The car is stock, aside from Pagid RS19 front and rear pads, and K-mac front camber plates, running at -1 degrees camber.

Enjoy :thumbsup:

I got -1 degree without camber plates, but my car was lowered by a little over and inch. I run -2.5 in front and -1.5 rear. I have found the stock pads to be plenty at the track. However in the group I run we only get 30 minute sessions so this may play a role.

The track is known as Mallala in South Australia. It's 2.6kms with 8 distinctive turns. It is also known to be the most taxing track for the brakes, hence why stock M5 brakes just wear out very quickly. Tempreture was around 20C.

Tires were around 44 hot. I dropped it to 38 later in the day which was better.
