Vox, did you get your car sorted? Any word on what the issue was that caused the stoppage?


Will.C, were you guy parked with the silver Z4M coupe?

I am not signed up for either of the upcoming Summit Point track days. Next up is May, but that might get pushed back depending on work. But man, Potomac has some great prices for there events.

yup all good! was all tps related, as we saw when pulling the codes. While it was in the shop I had them bulletproof the VANOS with all Beisan parts so looking forward to running problem free for the rest of the year :-)

^ yes sir. Were you there? If so what car were you in? There was a clone of my car (blue e36 M3) at the event. Went over a couple times to talk to the drive but he wasn't around.

I'll be at Summit Main with NASA at the end of April too.

Just did Summit Main for the first time last weekend. Ended up running a high 1:26 but after reviewing footage, I realize I need to stop being such a little girl into T1 braking zone and out of 10. Also, didn't even occur to me to try and take 3 in 3rd gear instead of leaving it in 4th

Thanks for the tips about my driving, though. Think they really helped!!

hey, 1:26 is a good time on that track, especially for your first ever time there.

In the interest of continued sharing (and quite honestly, my selfish desire to pawn free advice off of drivers much better than I ), here is one of my last sessions at Summit. Don't really have the chance to run a bunch of consecutive traffic free laps, but was still pretty awesome.

Funny enough I wasn't actually fond of the track after 3 sessions. But I quickly grew to like it. And now I can't wait to go back.

Fastest lap of the weekend (1:26.85) is actually the last lap of the session. Comments, critiquing and suggestions are always welcome!
