Looking nice! I also wish I had that space in the garage. Sebring is going to work that suspension. Let us know how it goes.

Hey guys, car held up very well at Sebring last weekend. Took it at about 70% for the weekend. Getting to know the car and making sure the differential is broken in properly. Looking forward to getting the Spal fan in and getting back out on the track soon.

Cleaned up the car, ready for some more decals and fan install.

Hope to get out on the track in a few weeks.

Got back out on the track this weekend. This was my second time at Homestead Speedway, first time on this car. Car did great! After the last session I inspected the rotors and found a nice big crack, all the way to the lip. Had small stress cracks the earlier sessions. Kind of scary but thank God nothing happened. Have a brand new set waiting to go on this week.

Here is a short video and some pictures. Thanks to WTF Motorsports in Orlando for getting the car all done and reliable for the track day.

Cool to see Bryant's old M3 again but with a new owner! Car was very quick at Pocono and Lime Rock Park when it was up here in the Northeast. Miss seeing this car on the track. Subscribed to see your progress. Congrats on the purchase

Thanks! Bryant was a great seller, very helpful and still keep in touch with him regarding the car.

Finally back in the states and this week was a big one considering a had plenty that needed to get done on the car and only a week to do so.

Took the car over to Curtis at WTF Motorsports to get started.

Things that had to be done:

-New 2 Piece Rotors assembled and installed (1 Piece that I had before were discontinued)

-Bleed brakes

-Top off all fluids

-Install second seat and harness for track day

-Install new BFG R1s

Let me start off by saying that, wow fresh tires and brakes made the world of a difference in my confidence on the track. Car performed extremely well, still need to mess around with the tire pressures to reduce a bit of understeer. My timing app was not working but I did as my buddy to time me a few laps and was getting around 2:32-35s. I am sure I could shave a few more seconds if I didn’t have a passenger and did better on a few corners.

Anyways here are some pictures.
