Had a ride in Jay's car, I'm not a small dude, and the extinguisher wasn't in the way.

It's actually the smaller passengers that even notice it at all. The bigger you are the more knee clearance you have over the seat. People with short legs tend to rest on the extinguisher. I've had a few people get their clothes hung up on it, so I warn people of it now. Oh well. #racecar.

Anyone doing the Dub Deliverance event at Dominion Raceway with Trackdaze this year? At $89 for a full trackday, it's an amazing deal.

So I recently bought a new toy - an E36 M3 - to replace my GTI (aka Éowyn) as my weekend/show car and want to finish turning Éowyn into a street legal track car since I've already done a bunch of track-related mods to her. I already searched the forum, but I didn't find much on what racing seats folks use. Anyone in this group have recommendations? I'd prefer something that isn't too firm/stiff/rough since I'll still be driving to and from track events. Thanks!

When I get some eventually they will be Sparco's. I know lots of people that love theirs.

E36 M3 should be fun on track, it's too bad we didn't get the Euro-spec version here in the states though.

Curious to know how the GTI compares on track. My track day dream car is the Z3M Coupe. Got to drive one last year and fell in love.

Here's some video of the Dub Deliverance event at Dominion Raceway with Trackdaze this past weekend. Overall, it was a great turnout from the VW/Audi community!

Also, here's a clip of a mk7 R that went four off in turn one...fortunately he pulled it back in before the tire wall.
