Thumbs up From an Enthusiast to a Track Junkie...

If you looked at each component of the M3 on its own, the car is not that impressive – it does not have the most powerful engine, the most precise suspension, the largest brake discs, or the stickiest tires.

But if you looked at the M3 as a whole, it is probably the most balanced all-around sports car in the world because of the harmonious balance of all of its parts.

Based on these qualities, our client Daniel bought the M3 as a street car in 2009, and ever since he drove it on the race track for the first time, he’s been addicted.

M-World has had the pleasure of working with Daniel to develop his street-legal track car with the philosophy of enhancing M3’s original golden balance. Instead of trying to go to the extremes on power or tire sizes or suspension, we optimized and enhanced what the car had. AiM data coaching tools were also added to enhance the most important piece of all – the driver – so that Daniel can master every single pony and every single G-force the car has to offer.

Data: AiM Solo DL data logger and lap timer with M-World’s ECU harness; SmartyCam
Suspension: KW Clubsport with track alignment
Safety: OMP FIA 8858-2010 composite helmet; OMP ARS FIA 8855/1999 racing seats; OMP 804L FIA 8853/98 safety harness
Brakes: StopTech ST-60/40 with Pagid Yellow RS-29
Aero: Arkym front splitter; Vorsteiner rear trunk lid
Power: Akapovic Evolution; ESS tune
Traction: Apex 18x9.5/18.10.5 wheels; Yokohama ADVAN A048

Special thanks to MSR Houston and Driver Source for being part of the project.

Once I get my car back (OMP harness is being installed and ESS Supercharger has been removed), I'll write up a review of the ARKYM competition lip I bought from PYSpeed. The lip has held up extremely well (I'm onto my 3rd lip!), has suffered a lot of abuse, and has no shown no sign of coming off my car.

Another great example of the M-World commitment to excellence. I can truly say I've watched the transformation of this car and it was a slow meticulous process that has now come full circle. Way 2 go Daniel and Richard............Phil
