Excellent replies! These people deserve all they're getting and more ...

I can't wait to see what your brake kit looks like.

The Glen is a great track! Splinter and myself along with a couple other members ran in September and it was a ton of fun!
If you go, stay at Seneca Lodge. Great history with F1 from the '70s when they ran there.

Yep, great time. Going to try to make it up there 2-3 times this season.

Signed up for the March PCA event @ NJMP. 1st event of the year, featuring both tracks.

This is a very popular event & fills up fast, if you're planning to come register now!

^ I did that event last year, tons of fun. It was gorgeous weather too - ~60-65*F and full sun, light breeze. I'll unfortunately be traveling this year ...

Cool!

A crippled 335i it seems. I started putting it back to stock too early, the other one won't be ready by then. I'll put the FMIC back in, that's easy, but I'll be running stock suspension for this event.

Really nice! Lots of dates on there for Lime Rock. If you guys get a chance, hit Lime Rock. It's a short track, very historic, a lot of fun and a beautiful setting in the valley. Even if it's for one day, it's totally worth it. Track time can be expensive though and you have to watch the sound level of your car.

BTW: The race car is coming along. We bought a flood Z4 vert for a parts car. Most likely will be dropping the coupe off next week for the cage. April 6 is the competition license school at NJMP and the 12 hour Devil in the Dark at NJMP is April 27. 3 hour driving stints will be interesting!

Very nice, congrats! Post pics of your project when you can.

In addition to the 3/16-17 NJMP event, I signed up for 3/30 Limerock event with NASA too in case you guys want to join. Hoping to run different cars on each of these...

Is it crazy that I already have camber plates, wheels and brakes for a car that I don't have yet

+1 on LRP, it's the one track within a 300mi radius I haven't done so far. I told myself I'd 2 events there, most like with PCA in June and Oct. I would do NASA but they don't offer the early bird discount for their LRP event.

Working on few winter projects myself. Just finished the brake cooling and now going to install the 2nd matching Recaro. Lastly will slap on the track pads, do some fluids and take her out for her first day in Feb. I even got my bumper resprayed after it got destroyed this past season. This time around she's going to get a clearbra so I don't have to worry abut paint chips anymore.
