[turb0mike] I smell track season brewing...

So woke up this morning in Santa Monica only to be greeted by some 71 degree weather with overcast!!! I can smell the track calling my name. I will hopefully get an event in this September before my first BMW CCA event on the 1st of October!!!

I am so excited I just decided to go out and get some new things for the car. As some of you know, I already installed my AST 4250s and they are a dramatic improvement over my V2s. I will say the V2s were great for a hybrid street/track, but now I have a relatively 75% track setup.

I also nabbed from Apex Arc8s from Harold at HPA. The setup is as follows

18x9.5 et25 265/35-18 RS3
18x10.5 et12 285/35-18 RS3
(my first attempt at tire paint... )

Hope you enjoy the photos and hope to see some of you guys out there!!!

P.S. Still have the Forgestars... Thinking about slicks for the track...
