Jonathan, I have a road bike race that morning in Crystal City. How long are you guys planning on being at MIR? I could probably head up there after my race.

It's just a MIR T&T - typically $35 in the gates.

$35!! Gosh, I thought it was $20. I have an appointment that morning, but I should be able to make it after noon if my car is fixed by then...

That is in my backyard! I wonder what the M6 weighs? Perhaps I can remove the spare tire and get it down to 7,000 lbs!

I was just kidding ldsbeaker. The M6 weighs only about 3,318 lbs. Still heavier than an E28, which is why an E28 M5 was faster in reality while an E24 M6 was faster on paper. BMW charged much more then for an M6 than for an M5 (and they still do).

Come on out! I'd be willing to stage against it :)
