Put on my track MEATs. Need to corner balance, once we figure out the ride height.

A few pro-pics from the 7.5 hour race last weekend. Didn't have my seat padding for the first stint and couldn't see much over the dash or side mirrors, which made it nerve racking -- racing with blinders. I hopped in, for my stint, and was like, "Oh fcuk, I can't see, where's my padding!" Oh well, run what you brung. You can really see how low I'm sitting in the first picture. All three drivers are the same height, but our torsos are all different. Had padding for testing day and day 2; with better visibility managed to drop 10 seconds off my times from day 1; better, but could use more padding even better visibility in traffic.

Trail braking into the apex:
943565


Finding grip in the fishbowl...good for about 90mph with the camber:
943568


Getting passed by the race leader. Hard to defend/pass, when you can't see over the dash:
943566


I <3 Fracking!

Getting chased by our sister car, which ended up in P2 on Day 2. Day 1, we were P2 and our sister car was P3 in class.

I dig those wheels! Nice
Thanks! They are OEM 2 piece BBS Style 42s. I have 9 of them, I think. Four for street and four for track and a spare somewhere. I have the two sets powder coated different colors, so i can quickly tell which is which.

Great idea for sorting the wheels! We'll be working on buddy's E60 project soon after we finished installing the suspension kit and dually wheels on the current F350 project and clear the garage. He's planning to track it as well.

I got the most out of these tires! I would have run them one more day but not on a wet track.

My son likes the M-pars from my 740, I'm thinking about putting slicks on them but up here that would only get me a day or two on the track.
