Post VAC Motorsports | E92 M3 6MT Track Day Car -Complete Build



No frills, all function here.

Disclaimer- this car was built to our client's spec. Seats, wheels, steering wheel/brakes and color scheme idea were provided by our client. Also, the rear brakes were on back order when these pics were taken, they will be on the car shortly ;-)

Our client brought us this 6MT E92 M3 fresh from the auction. It was in need of collision repair but the goal was simple: build a safe, well sorted and reasonably priced dedicated track day car. This is just the first phase of it's life - I suspect it will be a continual work in progress like many/most of the cars that our clients own.

As with every job, every aspect of this job was done in house.

Some highlights:
-E92 M3 6MT
-3230lbs ~400lb savings

Safety/Interior:
-Grand Am spec cage with L/R NASCAR door bars and dash bar. Done 100% in house.
-Lexan windows
-VAC race seat install kit
-TRS harnesses
-VAC steering wheel disconnect
-VAC diamond plate floor pans

Suspension/Braking:
-Brembo 365/345 kit
-Nitron NTR R3 3 way adjustable suspension
-Powergrid links
-VAC studs/spacers

Data:
-AiM Sports Pista
-AiM Sports Smarty Cam

Drivetrain:
-VAC remote oil sensor manifold
-Header back Fabspeed exhaust
-OS Giken Grand Am Spec clutch
-Active Autowerke tune
-Aerocatch latches

I had a set of these wheels on my last car. They are pretty bullet-proof, and flow formed.

Those are likely 18x10 square ET25, at 18.8lbs each. Very nice setup with the Hoho R6s.

Great build.

Definitely a cool build.

Has VAC built an NA S65 motor yet?

Can't wait to see what you guys could do with one of these motors, it would be the perfect next step on this build.
