I wholeheartedly enjoyed my decision. I finally broke the “faster with traction control off” threshold on the FiST. The pavement at tire rack was actually rather bumpy and undulating. Once I got dialed in, I had to disable the TC completely to keep bettering my times. This was a first as normally I am too ham fisted to beat the TC in sport mode.
Also there was a Ferrari 458, Porsche 911, lotus exige, multiple RS Audis and many M3s (it was a BMW club). Have some pics!!!
