Sorry for the misspelling of your name.. Yes I did go off course again on Sunday. Second set of runs, on the warm up lap- full speed on a dry course, but cold tires in turn three....The first high speed sweeper. I let it drift, not fighting it, then the rear came around, but couldn't correct, so around it came at 90 some odd mph by that time, and into the grass backwards. Grass everywhere again. But no blemishes, just dirt. I will be spending all this afternoon cleaning every nook and cranny, including under the seats. That is what I like about this course, lots of run off areas if you screw up, with no fixed objects in your way. I would look into the x-pel, or ultra shield for the front if you are concerned about the chips and dings. The 3M material is fairly durable, and is hard to notice. I showed you the headlights, and they are ding free after this weekend. I can't say the same about my lower bumper either. I will know more after cleaning today. I will most certainly finish putting the x-pel protective sheets on before next month. That and an oil cooler, 270 degrees is too hot. I'll let you know how it looks on the car,(the x-pel). I am debating if I want to do any suspension mods, and I think I will wait for now. If I can run that fast with a stock setup, I want to max that out first.
I hope you have good luck finding a "beater" for the track or a way to keep bringing your Coupe. The M3 that was there did incredible considering the rain. Quite a car. Hopefully we can get a larger contingent of BMW's out there to race. There were several M3's and a few Z3's out there spectating on Sunday. I look forward to seeing you again!
