Arrow E92 NASA GTS-4 Build {VS Motorsports}


Recently we started the build of our E92 M3 from a track day car to a full Race car. What is unusually about this build is we will be removing most of our modifications and only keeping the JRZ triple adjustable struts/shocks. Due to the SCCA T2 rules the E92 M3 is not allowed modifications yet, or even upgraded springs or brakes (we can upgrade to stainless lines and upgraded fluid and pads) . However we are allowed to upgrade the struts/shocks and so is any other car in class, as long as they keep the stock location/mounting points and stock springs. Some may have seen from our track day car thread a picture of the JRZ's we are running. Here is a link to the track car thread.

For our class some of the E92 M3 restrictions are we must weigh at least 3700lbs with driver after the race is over. 18x10 max wheel size for front and rear. Max tire size of 295/35/18

Where the car is at now, is stripped down to bare metal on the interior, to prepare the car for the full roll cage. The cage will be nascar style door bars on driver and passenger, with the x-style design in the rear. We will make sure to pictures of the cage progress to post up.

A few other things we will be adding are an Aim data acquisition, Recaro Pro Racer hans seat, Quick Disconnect steering wheel (not sure which wheel yet), center and driver safety net, and radio for pit communications.

What it used to look like as a track day car.

Interior completely stripped out
