the car feels like a feather in the rear, and it is very tail happy, just the way i like it

The stickers on the back on the seats need to go... that's at least an extra 5 lbs.

The car looks good. Have you thought about building a parcel shelf for the back to seal it up? Seems like you could build something lite and easily removeable. Might add 10 lbs, but could make it look much more factory. Great job either way.

Wow that looks awesome for a track build car with some serious stripping. I am correct in assuming everything fits back nicely?
Have been corner weight balanced? guess thats obviously done right?

i got a question, will you be doing anything to cover all the metal in the rear or leave it bare? i think it could be pretty cool if maybe you put suede all over after you install the roll cage, although it might add like 10lb max i think lol. and what about racing harness? and are you planning to do any motor work other than software?

Dick,

I race for Ferrari by the way at an INTERNATIONAL level.
Anyways, STFU

OP,

Sweet set up, any other major plans? You just need to throw that big new DINAN engine when it comes out and you will slaughter!

tnx guys for all the nice compliments, its very good to see that people who own m3s are still in the track/racing scene, because bmw made a more subtle car and it is our job to make it raw and with alot of balllllz..

thanks and take care

Why the iDrive if the car was going to be stripped for weight savings/racing? Any particular reason or it was just the only car available?
