This is NOT the right way.

Your car will stop faster just before ABS kicks in. The trick is to learn where that threshold is.

The thread sticking out past the wheel looks good..... a good rule of thumb is to have the diameter of the lug in thread engagement. So in your case 12mm of thread sticking out past the wheel.

Re: RE11 - how low do you go?

Take the tires off the wheels and turn them around putting the wear toward the inside.

If they are directional, swap them to the other side as well.

Re: Why did you pick the e46 m3 as a track car?

I'm not saying you're wrong..... but I find it hard to believe the M3 would be quicker then the CS when the CS weighs less, has more horsepower and has a better chassis.
