Thanks man! I'm the new guy at VAC, but I trust we will be talking soon Our local styling guy covered them with the yellow film. I will confirm the material tomorrow when he comes in.

Thanks, I'm on the edge of buying one but don't know how it would look from the rear, I cant find any pics on the forum.

Had the car out at NJMP (Lightning) today for a DE. Our partner in the Middle East was visiting us for the week, so it made sense to stop by NJMP for some fun.

Garo is a rally/hill climb/drift badass, so this was a bit of a change. Can is running STRONG and cool - this VF Engineering kit continues to impress.

Here is a vid of Garo in his E90 M3.

Marc, a regional SCCA champ with a great EVO8 just sent us this vid. Gets interesting around 15:00. Day 2 was even better for us - our owner Tony drove the car and hammered it pretty hard. The VF kit performed flawlessly! We will need different brake pads and our new suspension will be here soon.

Love his comments
-"Final session of the day in the black run group. sun glare going into t1 was brutal. chasing VAC motorsports supercharged m3...listen to that thing howel on the straights!"

-"You really need headphones to do the sound of that SC beast any justice. I could actually FEEL the sound of your car in my chest as I was entering the straight... unreal"

Since our man Akash is making things happen on the drag strip, we had to give it a try. We are road racing guys through and through, but I convinced the team that it is OK to go in a straight line from time to time A supercharged E9x M is one of the best cars on the road...period. We had a respectable first day at the strip in addition to many all out sessions at NJMP. This car never ceases to amaze us!

This is the first time we had our E92 M3 on the strip - so there is room for improvement. We made 10? runs and this was our best pass. The car WILL run 10s once we figure the car out.

We had a hard time getting launch control to activate every time...honestly not sure why but we will get it sorted.

What's the exact model name for those wheels? (I searched BBS RE-1243 but nothing showed up).
If possible, where can i get those wheels and how much do they go for?

Thanks!

Mike, congrats on the time! Quick question, what did you guys do for the seatbelt/airbag errors after installing the race seats?

Added a Vorsteiner front lip, Nitron 3 way suspension, new R888s and a BMW Perf rear lip.

Went drag racing a few weeks ago, but the line lock failed. Next time.

The Standard, NYC style. 18" R888s, Nitron 3 way suspension, catless exhaust, 650hp VF supercharger - driven in the city every day. Philly, NYC, DC.

Yes, we sell them too - lol. BE warned, they are technically not 'street legal' and they do not accept TPMS sensors. Great track wheels that we happen to use on the street.
