    Really!!? Still is a good show as always and yes if you could mount it closer but I would double check the spot meter thing cause something is not working properly and I see what you mean by using other peoples draft, but silly me I would’ve consider that rude behaviour before knowing what you were doing Lol

    But there's a bigger point here. The 1-series is the last car that BMW engineered before the Germans, as a car-making culture, fell out of love with driving.

    Thanks Mario! I drive the white e36; I was pitted with Shawn and Chris. It should be about 200 rwhp, and 2700 lb or so. My top speed was a hair under 200 km/hr, but my speedometer reads faster than the car is moving so I figure about 185/190 km/hr top speed.

    That STI was much faster than me in the straights on other occasions; he was definitely on a cool down lap. I believe he actually passes me early in the video.

    T5 is fun, just launch the car up the ramp and hope you're pointed towards the concrete patches on the other side!

    thankfully for some classes that may come to an end next year. The rules are changing and looks like some classes will go to a HP:Weight rule. So we may be able to finally peel the tape off our on board dashboards from our data acquisition systems.
