Track day.... lol

LOL so i got "pressured" to track the X5....all it took was one person saying "Hay Haithem i thin....." and me cutting him off saying "TRACK THE TOW VEHICLE" ...lol

If any of you know PIR in portland, or....I was hitting 134 on the back straight and 130/1 on the front. With better tires and more confidence in the brakes im sure i could be much faster.....but i got the beast to oversteer hahahahaha So i can officially say i've drifted the car!! But yep....very capable on the track!

OctoberFast is coming up at Road America the BMWCC in August. I have been thinking about taking the X5M up to it for giggles. I think it would be a ton of fun on the track. I am concerned about tires and brakes. Tires are $500 a piece for the 215 wheels. And while the brake rotors are over 15" in diameter, the calipers and pads are completely inadequate for the hard braking at RA.

I wasn't even going 7/10ths.....and i felt it needed more brakes!!! The tires are very inadequate...they got goopy around 4 laps....so yeah....unless you want to get Rcomps and do a brake flush and get some custom made SS brake lines.....i'd only do a few laps!

M

Running it in Conference in the Pac North west next year. Its a new class that has a 1 to 10 power to weight ratio as the biggest rule. Even then it is wheel horsepower and weight with driver in the car. So a lotus exige puts out 240 crank which is about 210-220 wheel....the car stock is 2077 pounds without driver....I vary anywhere between 180-200 depending on much working out i do and then added weight of cage, fire system, full aero, wider rims with R comps, and some other goodies.

I haven't run the car yet, itll be campaigned next season, but the car that was competitive this season was an E46 M3, and not a single lotus run in the class. So i think i should be good!
