So this is the time where I start my new track thread.

Every year I question myself why do I put this thread in e90post/Regional/Canada?

It has worked fine since the beginning, but not many of us still have our e90. Not all of us are in Canada, and we like to broaden our horizons and track South of the border from time to time (some of us do).

So my question is : Where do I post this new thread where I can get the most traffic, and please most people who track in the NorthEast?

Why isn't it in the Tracking, Autocrossing, Dragstrip, Driving Techniques sub group of e90? why not m3post, or some other track forums in the interweebs...

What do you guys think?

You are our fearless leader Tony, whatever you decide we'll follow.

I think e90post is slowly dying, I don't come here as often I used to. The trackers we know have different cars (VW, Porsche, BMW, Hyundai etc.), and as you say are from Montreal, Toronto etc.

Email or FB is not the best either.....

Decisions decisions!

I do not come to E90Post anymore UNLESS someone posts in this thread or in the Montreal thread. But when someone does, I always do!

Not the simplest of descisions. We're kind of used to it here, but I think it makes better sense to place it like you were thinking ... in Tracking, Autocrossing, Dragstrip, Driving Techniques sub group of e90.

It may even make sense to place or cross post it on Montreal racing in the Lapping / Circuit sub forum.

I was just going to say that the one thing that unifies us all on E90Post is that none of us drive an E90 anymore Except ken.

Technically you are right since you mention E90, but that is if you don't you count E92s? Antony, Jerry, George, Moe, Fahad, Chris Kokinos, Joe (Vert) the list goes on.... Some are Ms I admit, but a few are 335s....

The Lapping / Circuit forum is well managed. Cant say so for the rest of the forums there, so I agree with you there.

Hi folks,

I posted the video here if you want to have a look:

http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthr...0#post15069180

I hope everyone is doing well.

We are now in for the long "off" season . I blew the dust off my PS3 and I am anticipating the arrival of GT6 to keep the reflexes going, or so I like to beleive . At least I'll get to test drive the new M4; virtually at least .

See ya all at the track next year or at an upcoming meet .

Apologies! As mentioned in the other thread, week end days are booked for me till the end of the year. Perhaps a week night like Wednesday or Thursday might work. But you folks should go ahead and organize one!

Camaro Z28
BMW 235M, M2?
CLA 45 AMG
Golf VII R
RX 9?
Next Genesis
