Well as title says today was my first debut im autox and running my "stock" 335i because i didnt flash it yet with mhd tune and my throttle response S U C K E D cause we never got out of second gear got a 6 runs in and all my friends and my friends friends that have been doing this were surprised at me hitting no cones doing perfect lines. GTR were trapping 59-61seconds myself 62-66sec.

Side note the PSS were amazing on my staggered set up on 19 with -1 camber front and -2 camber rear and the tire psi 31 all around stock sport suspension. Also my friends Mustang GT couldnt run after the first run because they have N E V E R heard a mustang that loud its FBO BBK or whatever they call them pretty quick its the black one in the pic.


Now ill be in the market for some 18s Square Set Apex ARC-8 or any Apex or the 219M

Couple things, guarantee you weren't doing perfect lines. I don't know what the statement indicated but keep that in mind.

You'll never get out of 2nd gear. It's rare that you'll get into 3rd...although it does happen on the national scene. I typically get to 67 for a quick second at some courses as that's the top of my 2nd gear. Cars that are geared lower (ie NC Miata) will jump into 3rd.


Comparing yourself against a car isn't always the best idea. What were your results on PAX?

PS - Your friends Mustang is classed completely wrong. STF is Street Touring FWD. Currently there is no classing for a 5.0 in ST trim so it'd be in ESP most likely depending on mods

Yes they did class his mustang wrong

I had great lines according to a professional

I also stayed in second gear as well

I was comparing myself because he had more experience and i was keeping up

Sounded like fun. But if you get a chance, take the car to a real track as well, you learn faster and get way more seat time in a day.
