VS Motorsports Track Day Car!

Recently we had some professional pictures taken of our E92 M3 track day car. Right now we have been using it to have fun at the local tracks in the area and doing some testing. Most of the time we spend at Autobahn Country Club in Joliet IL but we love making it Road America, Blackhawk ,Grattan , Gingerman, and some others.

Mod wise the E92 has Dinan Springs, Dinan 4.10, Dinan intake, Dinan exhaust, BMW motorsports front lip, VS Motorsports bolt in cage and BBS Gt4 wheels. We are still on stock brakes but upgraded pads/lines, and fluid. Reason is over the winter this car will be converted to a full track car and race in SCCA T2 class. The T2 class does not allow any mods (sadly), besides upgraded struts/shocks and exhaust. So we have a set of specially made JRZ triple adjustable, that are to use the stock springs and mounts. For the other mods we will be taking the rest of them off and putting the stock components back on. Going back to stock isn't fun but there is nothing like putting the E92 M3 through its test in wheel to wheel racing.

However we were able to get some times at certain tracks with the mods we have now for comparison when we test in T2 form later.

Autobahn South
-1:34.7
Road America
-2:29.3

Since we race in the SCCA we have picked up BFG as our tire sponsor and have been doing some testing with the BFG R1 compound with this car and our E46 (The times above are with the BFG R1 compound). However we recently got to try out the BFG R1(S) compound which would be comparable to the Hoosier A6. We tested these on the E46 and we ran faster times with BFG than the hoosiers! Thats huge as the Hoosier A6 has always been known as the fastest tire in our class. We can't wait to get a set on the E92 and test them out!

Below are some of the pictures we had taken!
