OMG,.... Best "Bimmer" so far.

Tuned for Drivng Force Pro at Laguna Seca on R3 tires.

Includes; a "racing exhaust & intake", "sport chip", "oil change" to get the Hp to 421.
Note: no LSD,... and no Wing.

Box Stock suspension got me a 1' 24.737 at Laguna Seca.
I tuned it a bit, spring rates and stabilizers are stock still.
My best lap: 1' 23.933, 10/17/06

This car sticks well and slides very balanced when it lets go.

Fun, Fun, Fun. Can't wait to use this car against much more powerful cars.

Laguna Seca 200mi Endurance Race.............
Updated 12/20/2006 2:28 PM Post a reply Quote this post View BTWhite37's info
I use this car for the Laguna Seca 200mi Endurance Race quite often to make a few eatra $$$$. I use the above setup in B-Spec. It is a quick way to make near a million credits, (dollars) and gain B-Spec points to make "Bob" a better driver. I began B-Specing this race with 421 hp,... have won with 401 Hp and even as low as 389 Hp to make it more sporty.

Key here is to pass when needed, acknowledge pit plans as you enter the pits, (dont let them time out), and use the pit/tire strategy below. I've won by as much as half a lap, or even by seconds. And have lost by the same. This is good close strategy driven racing!!!

Pit at Lap ...................... Tires Ft/Rr

0 .... Start use ........................ R3/R3
14 ............................. go to... R2/R2
33 ....................................... R2/R2
52 ....................................... R2/R2
71 ....................................... R2/R2
90 ... Finish!!!

So pitting is essentially every 19 laps except for the start which is 14 laps on the softer tires. B-Spec Bob runs on level 4 , (out of 5) most of the time, is prompted to pass when needed. Don't spend too much time caught up behind slower cars. Good Luck and have fun with this race. I do!!

Would you recommend using a wing at all?

This Bimmer is way to sharp a car to clutter up with a wing ...... and the racing is more fun without it.
Try it with and without.... and you'll see what I mean. Might even affect rear tire wear too ?

So I tried the setup out with the wing and I found that in A-spec, I gotta pit after about 9-10 laps on Laguna. Any tips? I'm not sure as to whether it's because of the wing or not, but I'm doubting that it is, a little. Could it be more my driving style? I kind of push the sh*t out of it. I mean, I had a lead of about 39 seconds before the tires started giving me trouble. Averaging about 1:28'8xx, with a DS2.
(Edit: You're a great tuner, by the way Smile I'm a big fan!)
