I'll start with three . . .

I've got an embarrassing amount of photos from the track so I'll just do one each from Willow Springs, Laguna Seca and Fontana.

Those are 3 beautiful tracks to live close to! I'm very jealous.

I'll have pics next month after the first NASA event with the 1.

I don't think anyone has ever referred to Fontana is beautiful, but it is a fun track to have less than an hour away.

You'd be surprised its not as much as it looks in the pictures. If you look up through the thread, you can see a similar angle of roll on many of the other cars, this perspective just really shows it being its low and straight on. Also the car is almost stock body height, so the space under the car looks shocking but is somewhat normal. The car does body roll stock and with BMW PS (in this pictures) so don't get me wrong, but its slightly exaggerated by that picture I believe.

Yeah...it is more of a "squat" than a "roll".

Good thread. Here are a few pix of my fiancee at her 1st autox in S. FL. She is still relatively new to the car (1k miles hwy commute) and 1st driving event, but did very well overall. She enjoyed the AutoX and we'll probably do it again. Even more, she got pointers from an instructor, learnt about vehicle dynamics and the handling of the 135.

I'm considering those wheels also for track days. Can you post the specs of the wheels and tires?
