3 degrees of camber + 255/275 = .4 seconds?

i think baker deserves a little credit....or andy deserves a little harassment

I dont actually have those 255's anymore. and I found My camber had moved(drivers side) by the end of the day. I need to torque that shit down a little better. I still deserve a little harrasment.

I had a 76.6 FT. I had my moments, but not enough of them. I was two+ seconds away from larry and I am generally about 1.5 to 2 seconds behind, and I think rachel drove really well as well.

Either way. All six cylinders had misfire codes. Plus some 3-4 extraneous fuel pump codes. I cleared everything then ran around the block and tested again and at 4604 RPM fuel pump failed again. going to take her to the dealer. I have a cracked rear center tail light as well and some creaks in the dash.

Definitely was not taking anything away from Baker.. She's a great driver.

Andy, hard to believe that didn't happen on the runways. It's almost as if beating the snot out of it keeps it primed.

I'm amazed that the three top nuts backed off enough to allow for camber change... That's just not supposed to happen.

Bad news.. Had to cancel plan to go up the le Circuit Mt Tremblant next weekend for the DE. REALLY wanted to be there.

You should always watch their hands when they tell you something like that and be aware of how many times their hands leave their wrists.... gotta be some sort of smoke and mirror trick.

Just pointing out the times of the two sparring with each other.

Welcome, Lana, if that's you! You did great too.. there's a huge learning curve compared to a prepared M3.

Nope, not Lana. She strongly believes online forums are a waste of time. But I'll let her know.
