You mean the wife's car that you keep putting mods on.


My '13 will eventually come out, but I still don't have a clear bra on it yet, and I need to make sure the maintenance I did on the E36 has resolved my high speed vibration issues.

Phil - Aren't the Houston E9x M3 track steps.
1. Get an M3
2. Track E9x M3 and get addicted
3. Get a supercharger for said M3
4. Realize the E9x is too expensive for a high use track car
5. Sell E9x M3
6. Buy E46/E36 M3 & make it a dedicated track car
7. Go to the track alot

I'm just skipping the expensive steps since I already have the E36

Save your money and get an 08 or 09 M3 instead of a 13. With the savings buy a supercharger and run the M3 at the power it should've come at. Oh, swap the E36 for an E46 so you have a real track car

I don't mind being a mouse, let's play..

Maybe when you see the finished project you'll understand why it is taking so long. You know that I wouldn't miss this much track time if there was an option!

Not sure really - I'd love to run TWS on the 19th, it just really depends on how the suspension setup and testing goes next week (assuming good weather). This car has been completely disassembled down to the bare body and then reassembled with mostly new aftermarket and a few new OEM components. So far all systems are go except for a couple of malfunctioning AN fittings that I'm replacing this weekend - but - the car hasn't moved more than 100' under it's own power since the project started so testing is required.

If everything checks out then I may attend this event on the 2nd and potentially the TWS event if they still have slots for SOLO as I don't currently have a passenger seat.

It really shouldn't weigh more than ~2800 empty. The cage is a bit overkill though so we'll see. I'll have the weight next weekend.

That's crazy! You're interior must be just sheet metal, a seat, a couple of wires, a steering wheel, and a shifter.
