Has anyone run the stage 2 on stock 19's? Is it drivable or impossible to put the power down at all?

Under WOT 1st and 2nd can be a challenge and 3rd will break loose a bit but after that you are ok A good tire like a Yokohama AD08 will help out a lot with traction in low gears when pushing the car hard.

During normal day to day driving the car is very tame in all gears.

What wheel/tire setup would be recommended for the vt2 to maximize traction at a resonable price?

We ve tryed BBS CH black with 8.5x19 front and 10x19 rear and the tyres 245/35 front and 285/30 rear and traction is much better.VT2 can be dangerous without good tyres.

I've got 275/30 Yokohama AD08s on the rear and they work reasonably well. First gear will spin virtually anything, but these start to hook up in 2nd. The guys running the 600 or 625 kit will obviously have slightly more traction issues than I do.

I run 19X10.5 295 AD08's and they have been a noticeable improvement over the 285 PS2's I replaced. I am currently running a VT2-575.

Here is a manual M3 with our VT2-625 VS an auto Evotech 740 HP Audi RS6 at the M5board airfield event. The first run Gustav hit the rev limiter a couple times while shifting, second run was a little better. I believe this M3 was on OEM wheels during the event.

Now whats impressive is that the audi has 740 hp vs M3 625 hp , then you have manual vs auto Big difference ( nice shifting gustav ) , and the wheel and tires that make all the difference in the world when racing , considering these facts it was a good 2 runs , you can even hear the confidence out of the bmw driver saying you cant catch me which in return wasn't able to .....
DCT makes the biggest difference in the M3's period , nets you a 3 car length gain due to the Millisecond shifting , good stuff

I upgrading my tires to Michillen pilot sport cup tires from goodyear F1's

I did remove the midpipes to rebuild them , going to add 2 resonators and a xpipe.
I didnīt realise that I was going to lose so much power on top my guess app 40 hp.
+ a lot of throttle respons
Did gain some torque in low and mid rpms .

So if you want some more power on top and better throttle response, go catless
