Compared to what it will have the PSW is crap. Thats a smaller diameter wheel and no airbag, I mean it has a full cage, no need. Most likely the car will run a race tach too

I want your cage so bad, I prefer the stripped out M3 racecars to the Rahal car

great pick, it already has the Akra system on that thing already.
Yep, was Safety Car for the CSL Cup. Race series has been widened to include E36 and E92 M3's as well as the E46 M3 to make a full M3 racing series (E30's can be in the invitation class). Akra system is a work of art I have to say.

BMW wheel is lovely, really sets off the road cars well but for us a bit pointless for a race car. Its heavy, too large and as we are using a Pectel ECU and dash we dont need any of the shiny lights the BWM wheel comes with.

Thank you to whomever put more pictures up, appreciated. I didn't want to swamp anyone with loads just in case it upset anyone.

We should get the bodywork back just after Christmas then it will start to look more like a race car.

Subscribed! The more pics the merrier, trust me!

I wonder what wheels you are going to use. Forged for sure, and CSL style? Morr VS8s? Neez QD7?

That is very impressive!! So do you sell off all the old parts? Just curious as pretty much everything is removed and/or modified to your specs...
