Default Limerock HPDE

Well I had my first HPDE yesterday and man was it fun. The car was great I had zero problems and it handled awesome. Those FCM coil overs are worth every penny that's for sure. The car seemed very neutral to me I had to do very little fighting if any to make the car drive the line. Well anyway here are the pictures my girlfriend took of me on the track.

Flat out after the braking point. I was doing 80+ coming on to the straight my top speed was 115 before needing to brake for big Ben.

Its funny you say that. I feel like keeping the power stock so I don't run into all the problems the turbo cars have on the track. I had zero issue during my track day and drove the car 2 hours plus to get to and from the track. Knowing me I will be turbo next year

I can't wait to drive on a real track. Something that would take me at least 10 minutes to run around on foot.

I wouldn't mind living in that house on the side of the tack either.

Don't **** it all up buy doubling the power of the car. I'm getting tired of putting my car on jackstands for a couple weeks after each day I hit the track.

+1. If you want a nice track day car, leave it alone. Header, intake, and ECU would be the most I would do. Focus on suspension, tire, and driving.

You weren't there?

A single blue car, and it was an Evo, so it doesn't count. The BMW was too dark and boring of a blue, so it might as well have been gray scale. I'm used to seeing reds, yellows, greens, bright blues, and those kinds of colors at any kind of car events. Maybe they were there and you just missed pictures of them.

They are there just not on the track with me at the time. I was HPDE 1 the nicer more colorful cars were in the higher groups.
