Road Atlanta E36 M3 RE-71r

I think I set 1:51 last year. You're definitely carrying more speed through the corners than me. Before the car was re-tuned and I put larger wheels, I could barely hit 140 down the back straight. Even though that setup was much slower, I was surprised to see -10 MPH top speed with the new setup. I think it was adding more un-sprung weight to the wheels, but the engine changed too. Who knows.

RSX in the 1:52s is still a lot of fun. I'm thinking of running BMWCCA HPDE the 24th-25th in my NA Sonata. Goal time under 2:00. It's all about having fun!

[]Brandon Marquis

Good time, wish I was there. I liked your YouTube vid too. This is a hard track for a (relatively) front heavy FWD. Beats my RSX by at least 3 seconds.

That's a good lap time. I can't seem to put together a good complete lap, but the combination off all my best sections is around a 1:51. I can't get lower than than until I learn heel-toe.

[]Justin Hodges

Thanks Brandon. Putting together a complete lap is the fun of playing racecar. It gives you something to look forward to next track session. Heel-toe rev match downshifting is somewhat of skill that is difficult. I don't have it down pat. But heel toe blip the throttle sounds simpler and it is. The revs get better as you go. Just practice. (on the street too). One think I don't do is look at times on track. Looking slows me down.
