James Clay test driver = semi pro race driver. they may use a rolling start for 0-60 consistancy.

thanks, I think the E46's exterior styling should have gotten more points.

I'm surprised that only a few people here subscribe to grm. It's a great mag for those that use their car the way it was intended for.

x2 ^

I am suprised the e36 rated so poorly. maybe this one was not set up well - had an afetrmarket front sway?

and the e92 stock still beat the e46 with MOTON shocks?!?!

Thanks for posting! I went out and bought a copy as well. Also, looking at the specs of the e46's Moton suspension kit.... It's the Moton dampers, adjustable ride height, springs and camber plates. Good showing for the stock e92.

26 seconds is a VERY short track. imagine on a real track the e92 would have killed them all?

If you guys go to grm's website you can get one free trial issue and since this issue just came out, there's a good chance you could get this issue for free although you might have to wait a month or so to receive it.

GRM is a great mag and worth subscribing to. The only minus for me is that it comes out bimonthly.

this true- its a bit pricey for 6 issues per year.

I wonder if it (e36) was a poor example? set up wrong? has an aftermarket front sway bar? that would cause more understeer if its a bigger bar?
