Summit Point
1:25.22 Sirenty E46 M3 (sick engine), 288/280 cams, SSV1, NT01, 3.91 diff, PFC z45, PFC08, Ohlins R&T

Money shifted my car at WG the first day (spun to 9300) but still finished the weekend because we thought itd be fine due to how the engine was built. Did SP the next weekend, where I recorded this time and was on pace for a 24.x when I ultimately pitted in halfway through the third session and left due to the car consuming a quart of oil per session and some worry it was going to blow again.

After tear down, found half the valves bent, rods stretched, and messed up harmonic balancer. Rebuilt the engine (again) and looking forward to what it can do this year.

I spun to 10,200 at WGI in 2016. Made it two years before I ended up spinning two bearings - not sure if related.

I did the exact same misshift (tracking out in right hander, try to shift from 3rd to 4th, 4th blocked, try to force it instead of calming down, touch 2nd) in the first session at VIR earlier in the year and finished the weekend. It was with Chin so a ton of track time.

Couple weeks later, first session at SP, braking for turn 1, piston disintegrated and blew a hole in the block...

I always thought these were instant engine failure types of events but apparently they can keep ticking for quite a while.

All these lists seemed to underpopulated by 30 year old E30M3s LOL.
I dont visit this site too often, but I have enjoyed paging through the past thread and this one looking at the lap times (at least Northeast ones I can relate to).
Some really fast cars / drivers on here. Not to single anyone out, but Thundermoose you have put down some stinking fast times.

I dont know if these are my best times ever, but they are from most recent seasons race laps that I could find on the SCCA NEDiv results page (they dont post qualifying results and I dont remember all of them LOL) They are pretty good indicators.
Hopefully I have configured these correct for this thread.

Summit Point Main
(1:23.035) (jimmypet) (E30M3) (SCCA Production SPU - 2.3, 11:1, AlphaN, T5 trans, Grp N suspension, Wilwood brakes, 245/580-15 Hoosier Radials Gutted, full cage)


Watkins Glen (SHORT / NASCAR)
(1:23.917) (Jimmypet) (E30M3) (SCCA Production SPU - 2.3, 11:1, AlphaN, T5 trans, Grp N suspension, Wilwood brakes, 245/580-15 Hoosier Radials Gutted, full cage)


Watkins Glen (Long / Boot)
(2:08.543 ) (Jimmypet) (E30M3) (SCCA Production SPU - 2.3, 11:1, AlphaN, T5 trans, Grp N suspension, Wilwood brakes, 245/580-15 Hoosier Radials Gutted, full cage)


Pittsburgh International

few new PB's

Arizona Motorsports Park

Arizona Motorsports Park CCW

Wild Horse Pass East
1:03.203 MaynardZed E36M3 (GC, PFC, C51, 2814lbs w/driver)


Thank you KwakJoe for taking over the board. I know first hand how much of a pain in the rear it can be because I do the track records board for the newer M3/4's. Even have M2 and a few others trying to sneak their times in on my board. I don't even have the M4 anymore, traded it in for a Porsche and I still maintain the board, lol!

It is SOOO much easier to maintain a board like this if everyone puts their entry on one line like I did in this post so all that KwakJoe needs to do is copy and paste the line onto the main post. When people put a post up that has the times, track, etc. all random it needs to be done manually and can be really tedious. Plus the line doesn't need to be a long dissertation of mods.

Nice! Never seen the window and door switches on dash like that. 4.10 seems to really suit Ridge? Always like seeing the scenic tracks in PNW..
