I'm going to be braking HARD on the track. I don't want to sound full of myself or anything but... I think I am going to do pretty well as a driver.

It's got pretty shitty management, but I'm going to get the window fixed for free at least, the bastards wanted me to pay for a new window and the cops were on my side and convinced them they need to
Fix it for free, that's how much it sucks here. I'm moving back to my moms next month, I don't need this bullshit anymore

I'm sure Eugene agrees.
Because they have lots and lots of money.

So andy u got that shark but ur rev limiter didn't increase?

Oh and brad, which would u think is more beneficial to the car with headers: a shark injector or AA TUNE? both are around $400...
AA by far. It will be a bit more customized to what mods you have.

Both. Street pads for the street and track pads for the track. One is not meant for the other. Street pads can not handle the heat that they will see on the track so they will a. fade faster and b. it will kill their life. Track pads aren't meant for the street because a. the harder compound will fry the rotors and b. if they are not up to temp they have very little initial bite.

Its so easy to change pads. I did it that way for two years. You have to spend more money in the beginning because you have to buy two sets of pads but it will get more life out of both.

I personally think you are gonna be in trouble. I think you will be ok in the first run group and maybe even in the second but when you start driving with people that have had proper instruction you will start to notice where someone may be better. I've been tracking for a few years now, have had numerous instructors, and for the most part a purpose built track car and I still don't have the confidence that you seem to have.

This.

Ryan, your car, completely stock, is far out of your range of driving abilities, no matter how good you are on the street, the track is a whole other world. I've had this **** beaten into my head for the past few months on Bimmerfest, and I now realize what all these track guru's have been saying.

Don't get me wrong, I want all of us to do well and have a great time. Just worried that with the mods and your cavalier attitude you're going to find yourself underwater, quickly.

I'm in a 335i loaner today. :/

It's nice but I miss my exhaust (or lack thereof), rattles, lack of back seat, and my surround sound.

Most of all I miss my N/A pull. I'm decidely against turbos...

My 330i feels more like a BMW than the 335i ever could... and i'm not sure why.

You can't think about it like that. I know i'm not going to be setting records, or even pushing my car.

It's all about the driver. Come with the attitude of "I have a ton to learn" and listen to the damn instructor and we will all do fine, and most importantly, have fun.
