Really happy with my pb in the E36 race car. I broke a pretty old pb that was on fresh R7's with a set of worn out Nittos this time


Side note: Thanks Brian (IIRC?) for keeping up with this board. I might suggest to us board members to make things easier for him to also put a line in your post with all your info such that he can simply copy and paste. Makes it a little easier than having to sift through our posts and extract the info manually. I only know this because I maintain the M4/3/2 track board and another site and it can get pretty tedious.
Good memory! And no problem. It's an awesome tool/reference and worth the time. BTW, the seat has been great, thanks again!

Car: 2003 E46 M3
Track: NOLA
Best Lap Time: 1:48.545 (NASA transponder) - TT3 Track Record
Brakes: Brembo Fronts / OEM Rears / Pagid RS-29
Suspension: MCS 2-way NR
Tire: Hoosier A7's 245/40/18 square - Stickers
Other Mods: 3012 lbs with driver / EPIC Alpha N Tune / Full Aero
Event: NASA TT3 12/03/17

I had an interesting weekend at NOLA with NASA (NOLA Region). In October, the Texas and NOLA region co-sponsored an event but I was unable to attend. Fortunately, the NOLA region had another event on the calendar that I could make. Weather was perfect - sunny but cool.

The old TT3 record was 1:50.535 set in 2014 by Terry Fair (under the old TT3 rules). We don't run at NOLA very often but this record has been very hard to beat. Last year, I was only able to run Saturday in May and managed a 1:51.xx on some scrub A7's. I figured that with stickers and cooler conditions that something in the 1:49's was possible.

I signed up for an OTD on Friday and ran on some "new" Z214's but the best I could do was a 1:55. I kept wondering where am I going to find 5+ seconds. I didn't have any of my old data but I did look at some video from PoBoyR6 and he was hitting 137 on front straight to my 126 mph even though my car is lighter.

On Friday, I switched to some scrub A7's and took out a bit of wing. Best I managed was a 1:53.xx, which was good enough for first of 5 but was still well off of what I was hoping for. I looked at my trap speeds and I was still only at 126 on front straight.

I tried unplugging coil packs to see if anything changed. Nothing obvious though I didn't get any CEL. I replaced the coil pack on 1. I cleaned out my air filter. Drained my catch can. I decided to install some new plugs from O'Reillys. Immediately the engine sounded smoother.

On Sunday, I was really on the fence whether to put stickers on in the first session or wait until second to see how the car ran. The track was real damp when I had first got there and there was a heavy fog but by 8:20 the fog had lifted and the paddock area seemed pretty dry. I decided to put stickers to give myself two chances ( I wanted to leave after second session since I had a 6+ hour drive home).

I was gridded second, but the P1 guy showed up late so I was effectively first out. Car and tires felt great and I went for it! I got a real good launch on to front straight and managed to hit 137 by end of straight (my target speed and 10 mph better than anything I had done the previous two days). The stickers were magical everywhere and when I came back across start/finish my solo flashed a 1:48.545!

I looked at my AIM data and I was definitely down on power on Fri and and Sat compared to Sunday. See attachment - blue is calculated power on Sunday; orange is calculated power on Saturday.

Video - hot lap starts at 2:30:
