✪ Alekshop ⎢Street or Track - an M3's Identity Crisis

This car is one of our favorite cars that we have built for Mark (Radiantm3).

The car went through many changes in the past year. Mark likes to spend some time at the track and wanted his car to do better than a stock M3. Being a car that he drives every day, our goal wasn't to install bunch of expensive racing parts on his m3 and tell him here is your "track oriented M3" . The objective of this lengthy build was to find a perfect balance that will make his car shine at the track and still be civil on the street.

Just recently in the past few weeks we came to identity crisis ... Is it a track car or is it still a street M3 ? How can a car with a full interior, street tires, basic coilover suspension be passing fully built race cars, F430s with slicks, GT3RSs with cages and other fast cars ? The question is yet to be answered, the decisions are still to be made but for now enjoy the pictures we have collected while building this M3

They decided to stick cones on the apex of turn 1 at Laguna. So I decided to move them over a bit. (just tire compound transfer from a dirty cone)

It does look at the stock height when the car is parked. If you see how much the suspension compresses when you drive the car you would understand why we set it this way.

You want to use your suspension fully not just the bump stops if you know what I mean

Wow - that car is bad A$$!

It's an example of mods done to improve the car; not just done so the owner can say the car is "unique".
