I have a ritual where I grab a coffee on my way there. I immediately have to pee when I get there since the drive is so long. In the winter, I always have coffee on me so I can stay warm. Plus I have responsibilities and instruct and stuff. My own driving becomes an after thought.

I usually crank Nickleback and fist pump the entire drive to the tracks I run, then I pee every 10 min once I pass tech inspection.

At least you can hear music on your drive to track days. In video and stuff, my car sounds so mute. But driving it to and from the track? I get an earache. wtf?

Also, check it, got my data logger to spit out some actual data on screen!

Learning left foot braking. I didn't get much of a chance sadly. And I didn't zip tie the go pro well enough.

Getting more out of the logger and video software so that's nice. I got an axle clicking REAL good so I think it's about time to take care of those. With life changing, I've decided to sell the E46 wagon and use the fund for long term racing. IE consumables and investing in the longevity of the car. I got a handle on some lightly used drive shaft shop axles to fix that click and hopefully never snap axles.

Someday you try and actually go fast in that car, I bet it would rip.

0-60 in 6 seconds flat with 215s? I feel like it's fast.

Sideways, I was only 2 seconds off a 1 minute lap time in a combo drift/grip day. I feel like that's pretty quick considering I'm on an less than ideal tire width.

I feel like most drifters are secretive of their "Secret sauce" alignment specs but whatever. I don't have before specs in the form of pictures but I had -4.5 degrees of camber in the front and ~10.5 degrees of caster. that's with the GC camber plates flipped to extract more positive camber out of it. So the SLR kit did a good amount. This is after the SLR camber/caster plates slammed to the max. My chassis is a bit tweaked if you couldn't tell. I could probably get down to -2.2 camber and 7.3ish caster if my whole setup was straight. I think the plates did a damn good job. Don't pay attention to the rear. I accidentally set my toe "adjusters" to max toe out. I'll fix that soon. I didn't want to make the alignment guy do it).

How do you figure? I took the rear and made it toe in after this. Also the front toe reads oddly because I got out of the car to take the picture (0.08* of toe in both sides with me in the car).

so the toe is even L to R when you're in the car, but it's jumps to .2 when you get out?
