Going to ORP (O’Reilly Raceway Park) this coming Tuesday, October 14th, for Street Legal Race Night. Anybody who wants to join me is welcome. This past Tuesday was cancelled due to weather. There are only three more weeks to 'Race' your car on Tuesday night. Always wanted to do this:thumbup:

OK, there's another guy with the Dinan stage 2 flash in Indy! :biggrin:

Picked the car up this afternoon......and promptly went back to work, so I haven't had much time at all in the car. All I know is that traction is a major issue when the roads are damp. I can't wait until we get a couple nice days here.

First, CONGRATS on your Dinan Stage 2 Performance Upgrade You will love it!!! Wet/damp roads are quite a problem with that much torque...However, when the payment is dry your car will fly. I swear at times it feels like it's coming off the ground

Enjoy and be safe.

Thanks, I hope to get some more time in the car when we get a nice day or two!

Wet pavement definitely requires a disciplined right foot :biggrin:

I remember breakin, it sucked. Once things started started to get good, the party was over. Get some more miles on that beast, and congrats!

Congrats on your new 1er! Yeah, it's tough not pushing the car like it "wants to be driven." I have around 6,000 miles on mine, and it is by far the most fun and quickest car that I have ever driven Be safe and enjoy your new ride:thumbup:

Hell, I've only seen one other 1er in person up here on the North side, so 10-15 sounds about right. Hopefully more owners will post in the regional forum!

You and me both, bud.

I guess it gives me something to look forward to in the spring. By that time I plan on redoing my suspension. I think I've only driven my car twice since the reflash!

Enjoying it very much. I especially like that fact that I'm willing to drive it in virtually any weather. I owned corvettes for the last 7 years and never wanted to get them out even if there was the possibility of rain. So I spent most of my time driving an old '90 Toyota 4x4 with 2 corvettes sitting in the garage staying clean.

I promised myself I wouldn't fall into that same trap with the 1. I've made it out a couple times in the rain, and a couple snow showers, and don't feel like I have to go to therapy! Although I've already washed it twice!
