    man, seriously who cares.

    just go out there, have FUN- thats all that matters.
    and be safe of course.

    no one is out to judge you if you're not keeping up with 300hp+ cars...It's about having a good time man.

    Andy if you wanna take the 740 out, it's yours...just don't f'k around with my boost settings.

    Oh, and Andy FWIW you, myself and probably half this board cannot come close to driving a car 8/10's of its ability. At the BMW schiool there were guys in stock 318's taking Corvette and M3 doors... It's all about the driver, best mod is to teach your brain and leave your car alone. slow car fast > fast car slow

    @ the BMW school I got passed by a Mini Clubman and a Genesis. I easily outpower both of those cars but I apparently couldn't outdrive them...

    Quit thinking about it, just get in and drive.

    You've been afraid and asking question in every lapping thread! Either get out there or stop spamming the threads dude. Seriously!

    Stop comparing to others, mod or don't mod as you please. But you won't know what's worth it unless you drive it! Just my opinion.

    I was just as apprehensive. Took me years to just do it. I always had an excuse, wrong car, car not working, no time...I regret never taking my Neon out to Auto-X and that's at least 5 years ago.

    Not sure the 5 will make it either but lapping days are good enough. I just need the wife to buy in to my hobby...

    You're way overthinking it. I used to lap with a Legacy wagon, 250km on the clock with marshmellow suspension. I was by no means the fastest car out there but also wasn't the slowest. My reason for going was to have fun regardless of my or my car's ability.

    The car had 0 mods, I used to run worn out R comps just to save my street tires from wear but that's it.

    ditto.

    i'll be lapping a 24 year old Volvo with 307K on the clock.

    People will fly by me, but fuckit, I'm there for my own good times.

Watch a few YouTube vids to get a feel for the track, study the layout, talk to a few of the experienced CMP guys here (ie. not me) and go out and have fun. There's always someone slower than you.
    Where do you sign up for this?

    I signed up for June 16 and 17, didn't see any options for 18th.

    Three days in a row might be too much lol

    I might just go there to watch, take some pictures and maybe get some rides if the people are friendly enough.
