M3 GT4 @ my ED

I took some pictures of the race prepped GT4 M3. Guess what, the car rocks AP Brakes with brake ducts and Akrapovic Exhaust from the factory. Some pics. Carbon fiber doors. I was lucky enough to grab a quick seat in the car (which was being held in the ED delivery level). We even fired it up and did a few parade laps.

Any videos of the sound or the laps?

Unfortunately, I didn't video the laps, but I did video around the car. I'll post when I have more bandwidth.

Not sure, come to think of it they may be 18s.

The dash trimming and the fitment of the roll cage is AMAZING!

For a heavy car racing against other heavy cars that's not a whole lot of side impact protection. FIA cage rules are weird.

Is it the full system EVO akrapovic or slip on race?
It is interesting for Motorsport to use Akrapovic system.

Ugh, I am already cringing as I know we will see these on a street car that rarely if ever see the track.
