Im assuming you guys are going with the 2nd full motorsport option?

Any idea when the R&T kit might be released for the E9X M3?

I believe we'll be going with the TTX full motorsport option. The car will be used on and off the track so we'll see how that pans out. I'll try and find more info on an R&T kit for the E9X M3 application.

We are swapping the rear with PSS 295/30/19 instead of the 305/30/19. We found out that the new Michelin PSS is a bit wider than the previous PS2 by approximately 10mm. In the mean time we are burning some rubber off the used Toyo R888 we had from our now gone GT3RS...,

Why aren't you guys using 18s? 19s may be too heavy for a track car. No square set up either?

That's some very serious gear.
That would be great if you could get some info on the R&T kit, if they are even going to produce one for the E9X M3.

Any thoughts on converting the rear to a coil-over set-up?

I believe the Ohlins units are a threaded shock body, and the substantially lower springrate would be a lot nicer to the rear subframe, without any penalty in handling.

We have an extra bumper that we're going to fill in the reflectors, and paint it so it looks like its OEM Euro Spec bumper.
