Took my F80 out for first HPDE. Only 2k miles on the car.

Beat my best E90 lap time by 4 seconds. I think I warped a rotor though Sad

Wow great lap time, thanks for sharing. Looks like the car did great out there....it just keeps pulling and pulling Razz

Even though I know they likely lifted to let you pass, it was great getting to see you against both an e90 and e46.

Awesome!

Janis: did you actually warp the rotor or was it uneven pad deposition? Non-carbon ceramic brake package, right?

Not sure. I took it to Leith and told them that I tracked it @ VIR. According to the invoice and service notes, they took several width measurements on front rotors, and both front rotors were out of spec. They replaced them both and now it's fine again. To bad I could not keep the old rotors, would have been nice to see if they could be salvaged/honed/scrubbed/whatever.

Ran this weekend with Carbotech XP12/XP10s, and no deposit/warping issues!

Fun to watch. Lead/follow is such a good exercise. You picked up like 10mph in some corners while following Evan versus when you were on your own. Keep up the good work.
