However if the weight affects understeer, Im sure running a different suspension set up, tire size etc. will correct it.

So the Gintani kit held up really well at the track, it was 100 degrees out and after a 20 minute session this is how the gauges looked. It seemed to be staying cooler then some stock m3s out there. Some of the e60 M5s and M6s were overheating and throwing cooling failsafe lights. We ran at Horsetheif mile in WSIR.

Yeah they do, actually the e60 M5, e46 m3 and e63 M6 with smg that were at the track overheated. My car was running great, it was running at the same temps as the other n/a e90 m3s. In fact it seemed as if my car ran a bit cooler at times and would cool down faster.
