Re: Attending a trackday

Awesome vids! Love the "quiet hands" in the first one.

And I agree w/Randy Probst about the intimidation factor in the uphill S's. I scared my self so bad there in my Evo several years that I ...

Re: 2008 E92 M3 Brake Rotors Warping

No problems in 36K miles including 4-5 track days. Still on original pads. Any chance the techs are over-torquing the lug nuts? When my car came back from the dealer after a brake fluid flush, I...

Re: Interesting little issue at Barber

Nelson's Ledges hairpin: engine just stopped and I nearly got rear-ended by a 'Vette that had been dogging me. I was down to 3 gallons and now try to stay at least 1/2 full.

Re: Has anyone experimented with 265/30s instead of 265/35s?

All fascinating.

Why not turn off the DSC , esp in an auto-x???

What happens if you go to a longer sidewall e.g.: 265/50?

Re: Paint quality and rock chips??? Is BMW better????

My Evo had hundreds, if not thousands of chips in the front, when I sold it after 26K miles. My M3 has just a few, after 36K miles, driven identically (including track days).

Brake question

Re: New clutch/transmission DCT

Both were '08's. So I bought the '08 M3. The 335 was no slouch-it felt like the Evo VIII I owned for a while. But the M3 was a huge step up.

Re: New clutch/transmission DCT

40K miles on my DCT-no probs. This includes 3-4 trackdays. I drove an 335i first and left disappointed. On the way out I saw a M3. Took a drive. Wow, where do I sign!

Re: Is a new M3 good first track car to learn on?

Great topic!

I nominate the other M car: the Miata. Excellent handling, harder to get in (way) over your head, easier on consumables (tires/brakes, etc), less expensive to put into a tire wall.

Over 9 mpg at T-Hill? I got 6.5 mpg at my last track day at Mid-O. Apparently accelerating to 90-135 mph then braking to 55 mph and then repeating is bad for mileage:).
