Taming the beast

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
I did a driver training last week and put together a short film for fun.

Turn up the volume and enjoy the sound of HMS exhaust

Thanks everyone. It sure was fun and I learnt a lot about how my 1M reacted to throttle and steering inputs.

I honestly think if every 1M owner has the opportunity to have driver training like this in a controlled and safe environment (skid pan), there may be a lot less 1Ms out there getting out of shape and into an accident. This beast of ours is so unforgiving with the rear end snapping out when there is less traction, without knowing what to do and with a bit of egotism, nasty surprises are inevitable.

Safe & fun driving.

Ripper production Q.

And good to see she's starting to obey you and your manhandling hahaha...

I'd decided not to mod the 1M at all, but that Damn HMS sounds the muts.. love it. You're not helping.

Nice one mate.

Corey, PM Quang or myself. Awesome 4 hours of fun. Would be great to have a 3rd 1M there. Quang has mastered it. 29th May is the next one

A strange thing on the skid pan was that both 1M's gave low coolant warnings. Must be a bug with excessive G's ??
