I'd rather go where the competition is to win some Toyo bucks.


Less cars = less toyo bucks

Plus have fun with Grace's motor. Palacio's new one too for that matter.

I think there will be a decent car count from the looks of it. I'm not running SE30 for some HPDE sessions.

Curious to hear your report on the weekend. I'll be there in March either way.

Well that was a fun experience. I think my roommate and I are going to join for a HPDE in the future.

That's it?? That's all you've got to say about it?????


I was expecting some more excitement.

SOT- should be fun driving home from VIR tomorrow afternoon- especially those guys who drove their car to the track on summer tires.......

I wrote that from my phone so I was too lazy. It was a blast though. I managed to up to around 140 on the back straight and it was a blast pushing the M3. Car held up well and there are define points I need to refine, particularly realising my speed after I've decided I'm good on braking and entering a corner. I love the double chicanes after the bridge.

Nice! I know you're hooked now.

You planning to track the M3 or the E30? I would recommend the E30, but either one would be fine- I think you'll learn alot more in the E30 than the M3, but I'm a bit biased.....

Mr. Green


I was leaning more toward the M3 since it is never pushed hard on the street and I have a lot of more track focused mods for it. E30 would definitely be more of a challenge to drive, but I lack complete confidence in all aspects of the car at the moment. I.e power steering slowly leaking, I think the guibo needs to be replaced, high idle now...maybe I'll do another Hyperdrive but do it with the e30. Then I can decide on which car is more fun. That M3 flat out though is intoxicating...if I finish the manual swap on it then I think I'm sold on the M3.
