White E92 M3 at EC on Wednesday... you surprised a few people

Found on JDM Style Tuning...

Quote:
Hey lads,

Hit EC on Wednesday. First time ever on street tyres (AD08's). I wasnt expecting to go quick at all due to high powered rwd on street rubber but those AD08 are unreal. Anyways, had some really good footage of me battling a Matt bLack GT3 RS, but damn camera didnt record! Here is a couple of laps following a friends R34 GTR. We run similar power, but he is on A050's.....but we both cannot explain the pace of that M3 down the straight....apparntly its stock...it looked and sounded stock...
Both cars push over 300 atw kw and have $1000s spent on suspension/bracing.

Forum link: http://forum.jdmstyletuning.com/show...nd-a-Random-M3!

So, big question, was it somebody on here?

I don't really find the straight line speed that surprising...a stock e92 M3 would have (I guess) around 250rwkw? plus if it has DCT it would be cutting around 0.3 sec on each shift too...it all adds up.

btw, I really hate people that don't let you past them easily on track...like what that M3 driver is doing...It is so pointless trying to hold people up!!!

The park-bench on the back of that GTR must be good for family picnics at the beach

^LOL

So, it seems that this little M3 is supercharged.... no wonder he was able to hold them off down the straight. 400rwhp apparently. The owner told the Supra/GTR drivers it was stock haha

Come out, come out, wherever you are..

Highly unlikely it's SC then. No one would drop coin on a SC and not get the complementing mods.

I have the SBM Stage 1 kit. Flash is +15kw and exhaust adds further +15kw. There aren't really any other options after that except weight reduction. M3's are made for the track

The owner told the jdm guys at the track day that it was fully stock. Another member of the forum however saw the same car earlier in the week at a performance workshop with the hood up revealing a supercharger amongst a few other things.

If you cannot pass on a race track, you are not fast enough. End of story.

If you have the speed nobody can stop you from passing, no matter how hard they might try.

That M3 driver has nothing to apologise about.

I hate people who expect a written letter of invitation to pass because they think they have the right to be in-front on a track day.

i dont think that was the case, look at some of the lines he was taking, he was either trying to let them go, or he didn't know the corners. The skyline had heaps of opportunities to overtake him.

If the M3 was stock, then the other two weren't doing that great.

Who knows, at the end of the day, the ones who know the truth were the ones who where there.

That was painful to watch.

The M3 was nowhere near the racing line. Way far from the apex.

The Skyline looked like the driver was a bit hesitant.
You could see once the Supra took the Skyline how quickly he passed the M3.

Agree 100% the M3 was trying to give the racing line away, gos only knows why the skyline didn't take it

I agree that M3 was trying to let the other cars go by taking the outside line in the corners.

In these types of track days where people aren't familiar with you, it helps using the indicators!

Ehh It's not always that easy, back when I had my old S2000 I was doing a fair few track days at winton and I personally feel that there's not that many safe places to overtake besides the main straight. You're probably aware that car is quite underpowered and there isn't room to really pass people around the outside on corners. Also, it's better to avoid accidents in case the person in front actually has no idea you're behind them.

I've seen a lot of cases (particularly at winton) where high powered cars pull away from faster lapping low powered cars on the straights and then hold them up around the rest of the lap. At the end of the day I'm most concerned about having fun and avoiding any accidents, I also feel it's a sense of common courtesy if you're driving the high powered car in my scenario.

Check out this video:
http://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=506773995820

I was lapping a few seconds faster then that S15, but it had 200rwkw, compared to the s2000 which has about 130rwkw, mine was completely stock. I remember he had no idea I was right behind him for a few laps, but I didn't have the power to get past (yet I was faster), so I stupidly out-braked him and you can see he had no idea I was there. If you look closely you can see him try to turn-in and then turn away once he realises I'm right next to him.

Every well organised track-day I've ever been to will have organisers telling drivers to use the indicators when they want to let a car pass...

The M3 might have been trying to let him pass, but I think the guy in the skyline was being safe just in case the M3 driver wasn't aware of the cars behind him.

We've always been told to hand-signal on which side the car should pass, so the car behind should see the driver point outside the window (pass on the right) or point inside the car (pass on the left).

If the skyline really wanted him to move, he would have put his headlights on also.

Its all subjective, what one person says there will always be an opinion
