My car's not in battle condition. Still in crutches
Hopefully by next summer she'll be ready to shine again

Quite a few z4m's at the track this weekend with Track Masters at Sonoma raceway. Didn't get a chance to talk them, while dealing with my e30m3 clutch that grenaded.

I wish I could do Laguna, but they are now running 90dB days. I was getting black flagged once in a while during 92dB days running 95-96dB so they gave me some leeway here and there so I'd for sure get my ass kicked out of there during the 90dB's.

Count me in for Laguna during the next 92dB day, but til then I'll see you guys at Thunderhill and Sonoma.

By the way, just did Thunderhill this past weekend on the motorcycle...was a blast! So different than cars...

Stay with stock exhaust.

I run EU headers + x-pipe. Works well.

Yeah, I think it was that December NCRC date last year. Between me and the car, we haven't been in shape to be out on track much this year, though I have hit LS a couple times this fall, so things are working again.

What's worse, is not knowing how to ensure it doesn't happen again. We don't know if the clutch plate cracked or 3 bolts sheered off first to cause the damage. We are hoping it was a fluke and replacing with the same parts.

For what it's worth, we're planning March 26th, 2016 track day with SpeedSF @ Laguna Seca. Come one, come all!

Most clubs that allow convertibles with factory roll bars/hoops allow the e85 subject to driver passing the "broomstick test" with helmet on

I'm most likely going to lay low. Track is too expensive overall. Just ran Laguna with SpeedSF on March 26th, and although it was fun, and I'm antsy to get back in the game, it's just too expensive at the moment. Maybe in the future, if I get a better job
