wow! 1360kg is serious!
Last time I had my tank on the weight it showed 1518kg but with a full tank of gas, full carpet and the rear roll cage like the GTS has it.

Don't you worry about the battery?
The M3 has a intelligent battery management and the smallest value you can program is a 55Ah Battery (what I'm running)
Everybody I talked to adviced me not to go smaller as the system will go crazy and in the worst case your alternator will charge at 100% all the time which will cost additional HP.
If you know more - let us know!

Less than 3,000 lbs.! It's got to feel like a new car at that weight. Congratulations!

Dimitri,
if you're interested:
This approved cage here for the e92 has 56kg/ 123lbs.
It's a ST52 steel cage. If you get one made out of 25 CrMo 4 it will be roughly 25% lighter ( 42kg / 93lbs)

Your car with 1360kg + full gas tank + cage should be around 1450kg.
Compared to a 997 GT3 RS your e92 M3 would be just 70kg heavier.

I removed the cooling systeme radiators and made diet on the front face to increase the capacity to cool donw of the engine
I 'll realise a oil radiator more important to increase the temperature
I hope to make the double of the origine

looks like no AC anymore.
bigger oil cooler is a good plan.
you should remove the AC compressor, too


and when you're finished please put all AC parts including compressor, lines, radiator, ... on a scale.
I'm really interested how much that stuff weights.

QFT.

Power only helps with acceleration.
Losing 200 kgs helps with acceleration, cornering and braking.


Oh ya

For the spring position on the rear

There is a class reglement in the VLN series where the springs and shocks have to remain in OEM position and therefore we have lots of customers running a system like this.
