Good info. I was wondering how BMW was able to continue to race since the car was a one off.
Porche cried bit they did a similar stunt with their GT1, which also won a ton of races but was never really available for sale. Classic pot calling the kettle black.

Let me get this straight... You are swapping out parts designed by some of the top engineers in the world because some guys sponsored by a company told you it's "better??" But when you ask the same guy about tracking, "oh no, I have a kid now" or "I just detailed my car." or "i just got new tires."
