all of people with track in mind pull the motor brand new, fix it...and back out on track!

Is the gray E92 shown in the shots taken outside of the car yours? If so, I like your track wheels. What are they?

The course reminds me of a slightly bigger version of the autocross/kart track in the infield at Lime Rock. What a blast! You would never think you could have that much fun only doing 60-70 mph!

18 x 10 25P TR Motorsport wheels from Tire rack.They are pretty cheap & Light and plenty of clearance for my 380mm Stoptechs.Here is a pic of them on my other car.


We see quite a bit faster than 70 mph as in my 6 speed car with good rubber I would hit the limiter in 3rd and in this car I am well into 4th but the DCT gearing is quite a bit shorter than the 6 speed cars in the intermediate gears which is great for the track.

NICE!!

Looks like a big Auto-X!! I'd definitley get sick trying to take a vid on that track.

Martin, what needs to be done to the GT3 cars to fix them?

basically the coolant pipes are coming apart.

This gives a good explanation of the fix:

Thanks Jaypod.
Hope that crap is covered by Porsche. What a crappy-ass design for a racing block.

Yep an SHO.One of our instructors who is building a Fox body Mustang for historic racing.He crewed for us when we were racing a 325is in Canadian Firehawk back in the early 90's.

And, was that a Ford Taurus on the track? Hope it was at least a SHO.

I thought that was a Taurus in front of the vette and was about to ask. I thought it couldn't be and I didn't want to look like an idiot.

Thank god the Ford Taurus didn't pass the OP. I think this demonstrates how well sorted the M3 really is...in the words of Clarkson, "Sublime".

I have never understood why the paddles move with the wheel When you drive an older Ferrari and the paddles stay stationary it just seems so much more logical I do use the paddles on the street though.
