Their conclusion: If the 335I had come with a limited slip diff, instead of an open diff, the times would have been equal. So as long as you are keeping both cars stock, all you would need in the 335I is an LSD.
Magazine racing at its best. I've driven VIR a few times and have ran against just about every car imaginable on it. A 335i would need a lot more than a LSD to hang with a M3. The Bimmer that came close to running as fast as me was not a 335 but a 135 on R compound but he was still 2 seconds slower. A 335i modded or not is no match for the balance of the M3. The S65 is a work of art at the track, the sound track alone is worth the price of admission.
