The title of the thread needs to be tweaked...it reads as a M2 Comp at Watkins Glen.

How can anyone watch that and not think iD8 is badass?

Also, anyone else notice he never had the engine on sport plus?

He said sport+ was too sensitive for throttle control and was spiky.

Insane that he hit 153 at the end of the up-hill straight in less than ideal conditions.

Jackie you may need to think about removing the speed limiter for the rest of the season!

This came up in my you tube feed. That was very entertaining. The drive looked like wrestling with a pig on steroids. Major points for continuing in the rain.

Overall, I love this guyís enthusiasm.

Goddamn the first one is still fresh. Hopefully people will start holding their cash for the comp version so the OG becomes easier to find!

Now this is the type of car YT content I enjoy! Not someone with a camera in their face talking constantly for 10 mins with 90 seconds of real content.

Great driving and hilarious captions.

Would be interesting to hear about the different settings used on track in different conditions (MDM, traction control etc)

I was thinking "if he swipes the wall, at least there won't be any noticeable paint swap"

Awesome video. Really shows the benefits of adjustable MTC

How big is the difference in lap time between the M2 and a RWD M3/4?

Nice save.

I'm glad someone is out driving the M2 as it was intended to be driven - well, maybe a bit harder than intended.

For reference, my best time on my Camaro SS 1LE stock (same power 455HP, same weight, similar tires GYSC3) was 2.11.x. Also his top speed before the bus stop (uphill acceleration) was 5MPH faster even though I was slightly faster off the esses.

M2's 453 horses are clearly stronger horses than Chevy's 455. Looked more like 525HP.

I can't wait to get my M2 and hit the Glen. Pumped.

I couldn't believe it either that is an amazing speed and usually hit by cars with 500HP++.

A few of the ponies escaped BMW's count of 453.

Best comment. ZB should be called Watkins Glen Blue.
