VS Motorsports Track Day Car!

Recently we had some professional pictures taken of our E92 M3 track day car. Right now we have been using it to have fun at the local tracks in the area and doing some testing. Most of the time we spend at Autobahn Country Club in Joliet IL but we love making it Road America, Blackhawk ,Grattan , Gingerman, and some others.

Mod wise the E92 has Dinan Springs, Dinan 4.10, Dinan intake, Dinan exhaust, BMW motorsports front lip, VS Motorsports bolt in cage and BBS Gt4 wheels. We are still on stock brakes but upgraded pads/lines, and fluid. Reason is over the winter this car will be converted to a full track car and race in SCCA T2 class. The T2 class does not allow any mods (sadly), besides upgraded struts/shocks and exhaust. So we have a set of specially made JRZ triple adjustable, that are to use the stock springs and mounts. For the other mods we will be taking the rest of them off and putting the stock components back on. Going back to stock isn't fun but there is nothing like putting the E92 M3 through its test in wheel to wheel racing.

However we were able to get some times at certain tracks with the mods we have now for comparison when we test in T2 form later.

Autobahn South
-1:34.7
Road America
-2:29.3

Since we race in the SCCA we have picked up BFG as our tire sponsor and have been doing some testing with the BFG R1 compound with this car and our E46 (The times above are with the BFG R1 compound). However we recently got to try out the BFG R1(S) compound which would be comparable to the Hoosier A6. We tested these on the E46 and we ran faster times with BFG than the hoosiers! Thats huge as the Hoosier A6 has always been known as the fastest tire in our class. We can't wait to get a set on the E92 and test them out!

Below are some of the pictures we had taken!

I used a Nikon D200 with a Nikkor 17-55mm 2.8 lense. I also used one A800 triggered with a skyport.

Kris, thanks for the laps around Road America this weekend - I had a lot of fun chasing down all of the GT3 RS and Turbos!

You have skills, my friend

Awesome shots, car looks great. What do you guys think is a good time for full track in our E9x's at Autobahn, kinda hard to find any lap times for street cars there. Love to see you out there sometime.

Thanks. I would think if we did full track in this car it would be somewhere around 2:43. Not exactly sure as there are not many days for full track without signing up through a group. We will be out at the autobahn October 29th and we are going to do the race the 6 hour endurance in our E46. Hopefully next year we will be out there more, who do you usually run with?

We don't have any good videos just one where the go pro is mounted outside of the car and tons of wind noise. Next year we should have some awesome in car race video.

It's about time the world sees the awesome builds by VS Motorsports! With the success of your E46, I'm excited to see what you guys have in store for the E92!

Kris, your E92 looks awesome. When I was last at the shop, I was drooling all over your splitter before I took off....hehe

Matt, you seriously have the sickest street build E46 M3 in the world. All the right mods that are used on the track.

Great pics Johan!

The E46 is the best I've seen in some time. So well executed. The E92 is not too shabby, either. Keep it up, gentlemen.
