Results at Buttonwillow

Hot day (102F) at Buttonwillow with Speed District.

Mods are:
Brakes: EBC yellow
Suspension: M4 LCAs
Power: I/C, Jb+, sportcat
Tires: brand new Falken Azenis RT615k+ 235/40, 265/35

Time was 2:06.107. What times would be good for the 2 series???

I know in the current trim the car can get into the 2:05.xx range. With RE-71 - 100% in the 2:05.8xx range.

Corvette Z06 -2:00.xxx
Mercedes AMG GTS - 2:03.4xx
Mercedes GLA45 AMG - 2:06.0xx
There were a number of cars without transponders like the M2.

Also - video clearly shows why Audis are difficult cars to turn into track cars.
I thought I suffered with understeer - watch this Audi S5.
Other cars in the video are Porsche 964 911, BMW M2 LCI, Audi S5, S2000, Porsche cayman S, and the Nissan 350Z.

I'd be curious to know as well. Low 2:06 already sounds pretty good to me. I've only done high 2:09 on 13CW in similar conditions with a M240i (RE-71r 235F 265R, KW V3, Pagid RS29, stock power). Even that 2:09 felt near the limits of that setup -- car felt pretty floaty and hard to control all the way between Cotton corners and Riverside. Actually, this happened just one lap later:

with cooler temps and cleaning up buttonhook and the entry into the esses will get 2:05s. but that seems far off the f80s/f82s. I think the top guys are getting around 2:00. Is there supposed to be that much of a gap between our cars?

did you track the car before the V3s? I wonder how much time that reduce..

I'm not too surprised tbh. The S55 stock makes almost 100hp more than our cars. Sure, the f80/82s are about 100lbs heavier, but that's like 3% more weight for 30+% more power.

I did a few times, but the V3s + camber plates was the first thing I changed. So, can't really separate the two, plus I was still learning as a driver. That said, I think the difference was 3-4 sec on Laguna and 3 sec on Thunderhill 3mi on street tires. I wouldn't read too much into it though -- most of that was just getting any camber to fix the stock understeer and improving the driver.

PM me next time you make it out on track -- I don't see too many of our cars out there. I'll be on Thunderhill 3mi this Sun/Mon and 2mi next Sun.

Although I have a 135i, at Buttonwillow I got a 2:04.5 with KW V3s, m3 front lower control arms and re71r 255 square. For power I had a Cobb stage 1 and dps. For brakes I had SS lines, endless rf650 fluid, hawk hp+ pads with stoptech slotted rotors.

That's a pretty good time. I think a good M2 driver will get around 2:03 -2:00 min time mark. So you are right there. thanks for posting up your time
