You need a mic sock or something so I can hear your engine!

The video on a GoPro is great, but the audio is terrible when you've got the camera in the wind stream. I've tried both the open and closed housing backs and the open back just increases the wind noise.
I'm going to do some more experimenting to see if there's a better location where I can get some good visual data plus some decent audio. On the rear quarter I can see some of my actions, the left side of the car, and the angle of the front wheels which has been pretty helpful. The first two times through the tight turn-around I was pushing really badly and I would have thought I'd be at much more steering angle than I was.

Signing up for HPDE 3 at New Jersey Motorsports Park later today! Has anyone driven the Thunderbolt course? I've watched some videos and it looks very fun, and pretty quick.

Also, I know nothing about the track facilities - is there fuel and food on-site?

Interesting layout! The detail map shows a fuel area but didn't see any info about operating hours. I bet they'll use the "tuck ins" in corners 2 and 3 for the HPDE to keep the speeds down a bit. If they use the outside path in those corners that should be a really fast layout!

S2000s had their revenge today. Fastest time for me was almost 2 seconds slower than the fastest S2000. Supposedly you learn more from your losses than your wins so today was definitely a learning day. Need to learn to maintain my rythm in a long slalom 'cause I lost most if not all my time there......
I also learned the GoPro wifi eats up the battery if your forget to turn it off for 3 hours. Didn't get any of the afternoon runs captured.

The time lapse was really neat! The older dodge fishtailing his way through the slalom was a hoot!

Came in fifth place in my class out of sixteen cars. All of the cars that were faster than me had at least a 100hp+ advantage and the winner was a highly prepped e9x m3 on r-comps. Videos will come later tonight.

Not bad, Karl.

I've got autocross tomorrow morning. Mounted some used 255/40 NT01s all around to hold down the 500whp... Still not enough unfortunately. Hopefully I'll be able to pull the fenders enough tonight so they don't rub. Surprisingly, I'm having more issue in the rear than the front.

Yeah, it's going to be tough to keep that much power under control no matter what tires you have. I'll be interested to hear how your day goes.

No surprise there's more issues in the rear, there's just more built in clearance in the front.

At a minimum you'll be entertaining!

That's really quite good considering the competition!

Here are final results (first place to last place)

2008 M3 (track prepped)
2005 M3
2008 M3
2007 335i
1998 328is (ME!)
2004 M3
2002 Honda S2000
2002 M3
2008 335i
1995 M3
2007 335i
2008 335i
2005 X3
2000 Z3 M Coupe
2002 M3
2013 335i

I just realized I had the least horsepower in the entire class... Although the X3 really shouldn't count. The unfortunate thing about the "BMW Time Only" class is that the cars are of all different levels of preparation. So you sometimes get full-on track monsters grouped with grocery getters.

And here's the video from today's autocross:

This video is pretty insane. This is what happens when a millionaire businessman decides he wants to go racing and buys himself a race car...

Amazing he didn't take out any other cars! Makes you wonder if they require a competition license and if so who he paid off to sign off for him.

We had similar at Sebring AutoX last year. Our instructors were doing the initial car control test (we get free use of the AutoX pad in exchange) and then turning drivers that passed over to an on track instructor. Had a guy with a Viper who just couldn't grasp the concept that you were supposed to miss the orange cones, not collect as many as possible under your car. LOL

Yikes. A Viper is the wrong kind of car for a novice, that's for sure.

Speaking of how not to drive, here's a textbook example. That, and I've been so preoccupied with trying to get my Starion roadworthy that I never got around to swapping out my snow tires. I still somehow managed to post some pretty decent times, though.

Post-Summit Point Update: 148,200 miles

I've had four solid weekends of "arrive, drive, and go home" with this M3. Naturally, that meant it was time for a frustrating day or two.

The car threw a CEL about three miles in to the drive to Summit Point after work on Friday. It was running fine so I pressed on and made it to the track with no issues.

We plugged a scanner in to the car on Saturday morning and I actually had thrown six codes... misfire on Cylinder 2, crank position sensor fault, and some fuel trim codes. Well, I had put some crap AutoZone plugs in the car and we figured they could be causing the misfire as it was stumbling a bit at idle. A quick change with some of a friend's spare plugs (always carry spares!) and the stumble went away. I cleared the codes and went out for the TT warmup session and later, my first timed session.

The brakes felt like **** during all of this. Pedal would sink to near-the-floor and ABS would immediately come on... you'd stop but it sure didn't feel confidence-inspiring from 125 mph. I looked at the pads and eep, they were thinner than I thought they were. I had been running $Free Hawk HPS up front and $Free Carbotech in the rear from my friend Jim, so I figured it was time to pay up and buy some pads. Naturally, I ignored it until Sunday morning because...

I came in from the first timed TT session and Jim's buddy Max walks by and goes "your tire looks a little flat, bud." So we checked pressure and it was down to 9 psi :shock: after starting the session at 32. You could hear the air coming out. OK, ****, what now? My parents had arrived and Dad was supposed to take the car out for a Hyperdrive in 30 minutes.

My friend DJ was kind enough to let me throw his set of TRM wheels with BFG R-compounds on my car. We rushed to swap wheels, got them torqued down, and Dad did a Hyperdrive on some very, very sticky tires. Lucky guy. I also did a TT session on them just for the sake of turning laps - my times there did not count as the tires would put me over my points for TTD.



So now I'm sitting there, faced with a dilemma - DJ needs his TRM wheels back, one of mine has a bum tire (diagnosed as a nail - or something similar in size - through the inside sidewall...) and I didn't bring a spare wheel because I'm a dumbdumb. Thankfully, another friend had brought two spare K1 wheels with two Star Specs on them. We put my fronts and his K1's on the car for the remainder of my Saturday, and I turned some times yet again.

Oh, somewhere in this mess, the CEL came back and the codes were yet again for fuel trim stuff. I ignored it until Sunday at 5 PM



Sunday morning, I took my wheel and one of the K1's to Phil's Tire (good people, they are) and they put his spare Star Spec on my wheel. A fellow BMW friend had an extra tire that we put on the K1, so he could at least have a roller. A quick front brake change over the lunch hour with my ballersauce PFC 06 pads (now I'm poor, oops) and I was back in business.

Mid-day Sunday saw me finally turning some laps in a car that felt good again. "Good" being relative, as my rear pads are still shot - I plan on replacing those at home with more spares. I got some GoPro video that shows me driving well enough but with less throttle than is ideal. I need more speed in a lot of places...



I'm going to leave the M3 at home for VIR this coming weekend, as I'm taking it to NJMP on the 17th of May and I want to have it in top shape for that event. So, I need to swap rear brakes, clean my ICV (it idles SO rough when it's cold) and do a quick nut-and-bolt before May 15 or so and call it good.

We cleared the CEL right before I left the track, and surprise surprise, it didn't come back in my hour-long drive home. Stupid old cars

You went on snow tires?! Also, that's one of the slowest autocross courses I think I've ever seen, but it's probably for the better, since that concrete wall does not look very friendly. Seems like a recipe for a lot of dinged up cars.

Still, looks like a fun weekend! What are your thoughts on the CEL?

I did some reading, and it could be related to a bad ground with an O2 sensor. Although, the car runs well and gets good MPG on the highway. The thing is, it's throwing the "fuel trim" code for all four sensors (Bank 1, Sensors 1 & 2; Bank 2, Sensors 1 & 2) so I kinda doubt all four O2's are bad.

Maybe it's vacuum related, that was a theory yesterday. And I really need to clean the ICV before I start diagnosing anything else. Poor girl won't idle at all when cold and that might affect things.

Given all the codes, etc. the engine sounded pretty steady in the video. Didn't hear any mis-fires during the accelerations......
Looks like a fun course!

Then I guess you've never seen Upstate NY autocross... I don't think I passed 45ish mph the whole time this weekend.

I wish I took some video of the autocross this weekend. Holding down the power wasn't too bad because there weren't really any straights.

Unfortunately, they found a TINY bit of cord showing on one of my slicks (poor alignment by the last guy). Wouldn't let me run the tire. So I had to run home to get a spare wheel/tire. So I ran three 100 treadwear 255 slicks... And one 235 tire that had 360 treadwear on the front...

Of course, it was super unpredictable. Rotated beautifully turning one direction, and it was ice in the other. It was really a shame as the tires got warm towards the end of the day. The slicks were grabbing great, but that one street tire forced me into understeer that I couldn't correct with more throttle (just kept plowing the tire).

I haven't seen the results yet, but I think I got 3rd or 4th out of 4 in the Prepared class(all of the oither guys were on HUGE hoosiers). I was definitely less than a second behind though. It would've been really close if I had that last slick on.
