That would be great here on the West Coast. Ive been to over 30 events at 10 different tracks over the years here with both NASA and BMWCCA and a weight scale for the podium finishers is the most anyone checks here. Meanwhile, there are guys running 370 rwhp e36 race cars in GTS3 and CMOD and IP??

So there was no lie there buddy
I was at 298 rwhp with bolt ons & software and 3200 lbs without driver and fuel on a street e46m3.
Now with NASA and BMWCCA most e46m3s are in GTS4 due to the 330+ rwhp and 2900 race weight.

As long as your sticker makes you feel good, but from what I see in that Video, (and by the way, your braking and turn in points and lines were much better then that nervous 993 in front of you = u r the better driver there... and I would have been very nervous passing him) looks more like your at approx 300+ rwhp and from your change of direction I would say that your weight is about what you say, maybe a bit less.
BTW, Randy tunes s54s with bolt ons for 320rwhp all day.
270-280 rwhp is what an OE e46m3 with OE headers/cats does out of the box.... and I assume you have some mods, no?
