They should have used the same wrenches and stuff they used in testing.

I think that would drive over a Miata so not worried about contact on track

Mike Halpin, who helps Leroy at Flatout Motorworx here on occasion in Phoenix used to race in the World Challenge series with the E46. He much prefers the non M E46 (or any E36) over the E46M3 chassis. Says the E46M3 pushes too much, won't rotate like the non M E46. Mike's old car is for sale, so is another World Challenge E46 car on eBay. $30K or so gets you a car with over $100K in parts alone.
Made it out to chuckwalla last weekend and what a blast. Fun track that flows and nothing in the runoff area except the front Straight pit wall.

See you posted times on this track and not many others have, were you running CCW?

I've run it both ways in the E36 race car. Best I could manage was 2:06-2:08's IIRC in that car. I might of been there once with the M4, really slow I'm sure as I was learning the track. The long flat 180 degree turns throw me off. I have a hard time finding my marks, and the bowl gives me a weird vertigo feeling too.

I run so many tight technical tracks around the Phoenix area, that is sort of what I've gotten used to and what my car is set up for. This is Wild Horse Pass West track (Bondurant West). It's only 1.1 miles long and has a tight carousel thats fun to drift the car around on.
