VS Motorsports NASA GTS/ BMW CMOD Build

After the SCCA runoffs our E46 M3 started to make a big change as it will not be racing in T2 class anymore. The E92 M3 will be taking its place but the E46 will be built towards the NASA GTS class and enduro series. We started with making a big weight reduction and rebuilding the motor. The motor was a 100k street motor (That we used for one race) so it was in a need of a rebuild for racing. Nothing major is being done but just a rebuild to freshen up the motor.

Right now we are working on cutting out the unnecessary the wires and brackets. Originally we were going to grind away all the seam sealer but instead it will be getting a chemical bath to remove everything from undercoating, to seam sealer. There are a few other mods to the cage we will be doing to stiffen up the chassis, but this will be done after the bath.

We will be trying to keep this thread updated as the build goes on.
