Congrats guys, beautiful build

The car sounds absolutely FANTASTIC!!!!!

If I may make a small suggestion that applies to all the race cars you might build (including this one), paint the interior floor white or a very light gray. It doesn't matter what color the client chooses for the outside. Not only it makes the interior look cleaner, but it makes it easier to spot things that are out place or shouldn't be there; for example a tool that will bounce around like an infuriated pinball once you're out on the track.

Keep up the good work!

fuck this is a hot pic:



I'm quite surprised the car still weight 32XX pounds. I would have thought a stripped out M3 could get down to the 2900 lb range? I suppose, the safety features of the E90 chassis, the engine, and transmission are where the extra weight is versus the old E46. But then again the S65 weighs less than the S54.

Darn...the X5M towing a race m3. What a pimping set up.

I dont like the paint scheme either, but I'm sure it will work with lots of stickers.

but if its me, i'd have the whole car painted in Atacama yellow.
