^ You run strictly NASA and Chin right?

Have you ever run CMP in SC? its not a bad track at all. Let me know if and when you run either CMP or VIR, they are both fairly close to me.

Not strictly Chin and Nasa - I run what I can that's worth it... PBOC, PCA, ReZoom, BMWCCA (soon to make the X list - too slow and strict)

I haven't gotten that far north yet - but hopefully soon

edit to add: Chin is my favorite DE club; Nasa-se has free BBQ and Beer sat night!

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!

And for some awesome fun DE4 action!

Those brakes look even better when used.

What material is your splitter? Corrugated ABS (something?), or alumalite?

It's Alumalite - works pretty good!

Man - I put that in about this time last year. Works great, which is good since my carbon pass mirror got loose and flopped down...

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!
