I got some awesome fun in with Nasa this weekend at Road Atlanta in the DE4 run group - and got to test out the 11.75 BBK from Trackspeed!
Well, 1st off - running open passing rules is about as close to competitive racing as you get! And it was some freakin insane fun! Couple that with a car that stops on a dime - holy ****! There was a couple hickups, but nothing to cut the weekend short...
1st off the BBK is awesome! Learned I need more rear bias now as my prop valve is maxed out to the rear - I think more aggresive rear pads will do the trick. I gotta guess I'm braking about 50ft deeper into 10a than what I was accustomed too, but could probably do even better once I get the rear balanced. The kit is insanely better that the 1.8 stock rotors, calipers, and XP12s.
2nd - managed to spit the welds clean on my intake pipe! Nothing a 2.5" couple couldn't fix - and MANY props to the M3 guys who happened to have one with T clamps!
3rd - gotta order another Taco taco manifold - mine finally is puking around the #4 runner - still, got a year of beating the hell outta it!
Found this - never try to hang with a miata in the esses! Yeah, that's me in front and 50 min session for him? Naw, was 20min at max - and I was on year old NT01s. I had some fun with him for 2-3 laps...
For the full video from my perspective... fun with him starts at 9:00

It was a blast! I can't tell if he was listening to it or added it for effect? Music would distract me... he came up to me after saying he had it sideways, and I was like - when? I was looking for him in the wink, was wondering where'd he go? Not until watching the vid did I see him tearing it through 5. He did and awesome job keeping it clean, esp since he probably had his right rear on the rumple strip!
