it is a weakness in that it does not really have the low end gain that a positive displacement blower has.

just depends what you like.

whether an SC is too much power for the m3 on a certain track depends on the track and the driver.
That's what they sell you but it's not really true. Sounds like you never had a supercharged e92 m3 and haven't taken one to the track.
