SCCA PDX 05112019

Only way to top the first track day of the year is for it to be completely wet and cold. This was my first wet track event, and AWD really saved the day here. The instructor likened wet track days to having an additional 300hp – and it was totally true. Most of the RWDs…

BSCC 2019-2 04282019

Made a number of tweaks to the car based on how it felt at the first event. To induce a little more neutral handling, I flipped the RSB from the soft setting, which matched the stiffest setting on the 2018 bar, to the middle setting. I also switched to the track pads (ST43s) to get…

BSCC 2019-1 03312019

Finally got the car ready to run for the first event of 2019. Aside from the rear diff, the car’s had some minor tweaks to its setup that overall should not really impact the handling. Overall though, I was underwhelmed by the OS Giken 1.5-way. The manufacturers make a lot of claims about what this…

GAX 2018-7&8 11112018

Final event of 2018 is in the books! The morning session was in the 30s and difficult to drive, before it warmed up for the afternoon. Just need to keep getting seat time in the car to get used to being smooth with the throttle, yet aggressive with driving the car, carrying more speed, etc.…

Stl Solo 2018-10 10282018

Last event of the year for stlsolo, the 9th event was canceled. Not a great event for me, I spent the first 3 runs on overinflated tires before realizing I usually run 33/31, instead of 35-36 square like I do on the Evo.  I also didn’t walk the course, as I didn’t come in in…

BSCC 2018-7 10212018

Had originally planned to put the Evo away for the season, as the last event had been the track day I did on 7/7 – however, the more I had thought about it, the push that the car was experiencing had been nagging me. The car physically will tend to push due to most of the…

Stl Solo 2018-8 09302018

As this was my 5th event in the M3, I wanted to get a codriver/instructor into the car with me, to see what areas I should continue targeting in my driving. I was feeling pretty good after the BSCC event last week, felt like I had built a lot of confidence in getting on the throttle,…
