Hankook RS4s. Really, really happy with them for track day tires. They're essentially RS3s with more grip and just as good a wear life as the RS3s had. Takes a lap or so for them to come up to temp, but once they do they just hang in there. No fade at all through the full session.

That's pretty impressive for a stock Z4M! I wasn't sure what are considered good times on the chicane-thunderbolt, but 1:39.929 was my best with pretty much traffic on every lap. The field was so packed, I don't know how you were able to muster any decent times in the advanced group as well.

So this time we were at the SAME TRACK and we still didn't say hello. haha. One of us has to break the ice sooner or later you know

Track: NJMP Thunderbolt w/ Chicane
Car: Z4 - 2JZGTE
Tires: R888R brand new 295/255
Time: 1:39:929 (with some traffic)

No video but do have gps-guided telemetry.

Track: Pocono Double Infield with hairpin on south course, CW rotation
Car: Z4 - 2JZ
Conditions: Damp/drizzly overcast day but some drying of track, 60degF
Tires: R888R 295/255
Best I could muster: 1:54.930.

Had trouble getting it into gear on some bumpy sections of course and from highspeed braking (160mph down to 60!). I suspect transmission fluid may be getting hot. Was replaced last year with BMW OEM, had 5 sessions on it.

Getting excessive brake lockup, probably due to tires not getting hot enough, and damp sections of the track.

Anyone else have times on this layout? Most seem to be without the hairpin.

Anyone have z4m laptimes from carolina motorsports park, aka CMP?

I'm considering a switch from my r53 mini, curious what the z4's do there I run a 2:21 at VIR and a 1:53 at cmp

Mini is fun, but I'm thinking about going back to RWD, considering a z4m coupe for grin factor

Yes I was! You at Moes? Oliver was with me at PCA in his Z4M Coupe as well. I was planning to pass by Moes and double-dip but kept running into problems

I swung over to lightning for gas but should have looked harder for some Z's. MOE was good though, we got a good 6 sessions in and all with very quick points. also, a 1:19 is pretty strong considering you are running into mechanical issues. One thing to watch out for is coasting through the esses (T2 through T5). I always make a mental note here to always be on one or the other. haha

Here's a video of one of my best laps (1:15) a couple weeks ago, hope it helps!: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1lJ...YcQrN8uimca6Lu

Interesting - I ran both our videos side by side, seems that I'm slightly quicker on the second half of the track, but much slower than you starting at turn1. I carry more speed on the straight, but have to brake earlier, and I chicken out haha. You are about 10mph faster than me on every turn from turn 1 through turn 6 - it isn't so much the line, but just my hesitation to push harder, and the issues I stated above that are holding me back.

Good to see you making an excellent time at the track! Tx for the vid.
