I like how this car looks so much that I changed my order to match.

I was going for a quarter mile run when I noticed the DA finally dropped negative this week. Some damp patches on the road meant that it was spinning up 3rd and TC kicked in (can't use LC with traction fully off like the M5). On the upside the first part of the road was dry and I got a 0-60 pb

Been logging the last few days and lower outside temps show that the car is happy with a bit more boost up top and maintains over 20 degrees of timing. popped a 10 second pass in the lower DA

I'm in the market for some light forged wheels I can run UUHP summer tyres on (non run flats). Really struggled to find anything in 9J and 10J widths with the right offsets under 8 grand! So after some research, I'm going to try having some custom rims made in China. Here is the CAD drawing in M5CS bronze

Maybe this color wouldnt look as good on a blue car but I drooled a bit over this color and design from the new 718 GT4 RS. Note the thumbnail seems to be some weirdly edited photo and isn't how the wheels appear in the video.



Edit: links here seem to not skip to the link timeframe. Skip to around 9:02 in the video for some action focusing on the wheels.
