Post VAC Motorsports | Fully Caged E92 M3 - Ready for the Nürburgring

We built a proper roll cage, added RaceTech 4009W seats, TRS Harnesses, VAC Race Seat Install Kit, Fire bottle, race floor pans and a few other bits.

"We had the VAC-built track car out on NJMP's Thunderbolt this week, and it performed flawlessly! Thanks to VAC for a great build!"

As with most real track day oriented builds, this is just the beginning

Hi res pics soon.

Looks sick!

OT, Mike i just saw a video of a sick stroked E46 M3 in Lebanon(?) doing some donuts on your Youtube channel and i got jealous lol. Don't you guys think that it's time to give S65 some love? Stroked S65 with some headwork would be killer.

Thanks man.

Yes, Lebanon. The S54 may be the best sounding engine to ever some out of a BMW factory. That stroked one is extra special

We have had a few S65s through here lately. The latest is a sleeved S65 stroker build for a hill climb car ;-) The port work is already done too.
