I'm busy that weekend but BW has an open test day on the 20th they'll be running 1CW which is basically like 13CW but instead of the sweeper you go past it to the Star Mazda Turn.

I'm gonna try to make the September event that SV is having.

CW#1 ....is Buttonwillows best config.
Don't understand why all the HPDE organizations run CW#13

$190 is a great price for the Roval
I did it w NASA 2 weeks ago for $160

Have fun and be safe out there every1

Mike,

Come out on the 20th... 1/2 day is only $110, last time I went I got in five 20 minute sessions. (had to share the track with open wheel cars).


My friends have been there with no open wheel cars and all day you can go on/off the track any time for the whole day.

I would -- but Im bummed about my car rite now = she's heavy and theres no way round it.

4 sec slower then my e46m3 @ Laguna Seca
and
3 sec slower at the Roval

and @ BW!!! (where weight KILLS!!) ... I did a 2:11 with CW#1 = slow

and stripping her out would just get me back down to my old e46m3 lap times

she's a phenomenal street car
and very well balanced at the track (more neutral mid-corner handling then e46 = out of the box)
But she's just too heavy

Might be out @ the Roval next weekend testing a full race e36m3 with an s54 ... but not sure.

ahah I think I saw this pic before. Maybe when you were trying to sell the wheels? Anyways, so, Mike, what are your plans? It seems that you want to get rid of the E90 since Laguna Seca when you found it is slower
