The ZHP would garner a few extra points over a 330i sport package thanks to the 10 extra HP, stiffer suspension, and gearing change. I would guess that it would be in the low 80s.

Congratulations to everyone on their great times. You guys are getting very fast very quickly.

One more (lurking) 'fester here - car #5 in F class, the '98 M3.

BTW, that 325 is on Falken Azenis street tires IIRC. Practically a hard R compound tire, but it overheats quickly - national level drivers have been known to spray water on these tires to keep them cool between runs.

That would be one FAST 'fester! Snagged on the camera phone right before I left... I'll get you on the big zoom lens next time Dave.

Interesting, because any time I had a passenger I had horrible runs. I can't handle the pressure man!!

Moving him from the passenger seat to the driver seat would likely be more effective.

But he does hit cones frequently. Think of all the cone scuffs you'd need to clean off your car Al.

I hope it keeps you awake tonight thinking about it.

Would I still be in D Class with the DA Konis and larger front sway bar if I'm still on street tires? Would those mods plus my R comps bump me to the next class?

I'd love to come out there later this year and meet all you guys!! Sounds like you guys have a great time!!

I think the R-comps would bump you up, but I'm too lazy to go figure it out for sure.

Actually, I think that's me in the RF passenger seat. Definitely a heavier weight for counterbalancing...

That was a fun day. I love that picture.

Now do you guys understand why I want coilovers with 600lb. springs in the rear?

I like my teeth and kidneys too much to do it, though.
