I missed out. I was on call for work and decided that I would not enjoy the 1 hour drive in to work from Brooksville if I were called. I wasn't. However, I made good use of my time and installed new injectors on the Mazdaspeed. My car runs sooooooo much better now.

First time out on the RA1s... they do slide a bit when they aren't hot -- at the track I never push them until I have a lap done on them when they are warm so I never knew what they were like cold.

Also running -5 camber front and -1.5 camber rear WILL give the E46 M3 an excessive amount of oversteer. Perhaps I just need to add even more rear camber

Wish I could have stayed for the afternoon runs. Confident I would have knocked my time down to the 52 range at the least with the hotter tires and reduced front camber. Ah well, next time

Nice job Vivek and man your tires decided to show that they gave thier best on the way home Time for new ones

My first time back with my completely new setup was a lot to learn. My car is almost flat now. Where it used to give it does not. Where I used to have to catch it I do not. My driving style will adjust and my times will improve.

Taking 6th out of 8th in D Class isn't bad at all. I had a raw time of 52.xxx but then I took out 2 cones but hey to go faster that is what one must do and when you improve the cones will stay standing or I wiggle them like Vivek.

I see people out there spending money on the car to improve it … If you spend half that effort just working on your driving skills, making you and the car work together as a team, then you’ll go faster – period. To make the car go a second faster on the track takes a lot more energy and money than making yourself drive it one second faster.

Wish I could have made it, but I had a last Minute mechanical problem on Friday night.
I hate missing these.

Muddy got Bigger injectors? Well, there's my excuse when he beats me.

I just noticed the time for Bryce Merideth.
Nice article on him in Grassroots Motorsports this month.
He gave me a ride along at my first ever event. Nice guy.

As soon as I swap in a LS6.

On a more realistic note, I also have an Xede that I need to hook up. That should give me another 15-20 rwhp. Brakes are first, though. I have some axxis ultimates on order.
