RD Sport R35 biturbo vs M3



Hope its not a repost. The rear of the 335 looks quite nice!


Edit: more of that 335..

Haven't seen it before, nice video. I'm assuming the M3 would eventually pass the RDSport R35 though. I'd posted pictures of that car a while back and wasn't sure what it was.

Also sounds like the m3 is short shifting.

The m3 DOES have a 8,2xx redline.

Its just a few of their parts according to their video its' just their Bodykit , Wheels , ECU tune (piggyback) and cat back exhaust. I believe they're working on the RS35 biturbo with upgraded turbos and more mods like LSD yada yada.

I've actually seen that car in person when dropping off my M3 and performance wise it has an axle-back quad exhaust, piggyback tune, intercooler, and lightweight forged wheels. Doesn't have their full exhaust, LSD, BBK or upgraded turbos.

The cosmetic mods are quite extensive. Besides the aerokit, there is a replacement Racing Dynamics branded speedometer/tach, and tons of badging and unique features like an engine cover, logos embossed on the headrests, etc...making up the car conversion as opposed to 'just a few of their parts.'

Coincidentally, that's my M3 in the race. They asked if it could be used for a run and I agreed. Probably helped convince me to buy their engine rebuild; more on that in the engine tuning section.

I agree with the turning comment above. It is like the Dinan 335i vs. M3 shootout video on youtube. The M3 wins every performance measure because it has a better entire package. I couldn't imagine spending (and I'm guessing) $60K all said and done on a RD Sport 335 now that the M3 is on the market.
