.:Trinity Autosport:. E92 M3 Race Build

In October of 2015 we acquired GSR Autosport and gained an essential partnership with Josh Henley. Since then, we've been considering the idea to build a company race car. We initially wanted to build an E46 M3, but realized that we already had 2 clients with fully race built E46 M3's. So we started considering the F13 M6, but the desired parts were not available to build a proper race car. Therefore, decided to build an E92 M3 and purchased one in the beginning of December.

In the first few hours of purchasing the car, we weighed it in stock form and the car weighed in at 3575 with 1/2 a tank of gas. After weighing it we took out most of the interior, minus the dash. The car weighed 3249 with a little under 1/2 a tank of gas.

We will continue to update the thread with more pictures

Specs:

2008 E92 M3 with Sunroof
- OEM CF Roof
- JRZ Motorsport 1133 Double Adjustable w/ SWIFT
- Stoptech Trophy ST60/ST40

- Macht Schnell Intake
- Macht Schnell Solid Subframe/Diff Bushings
- Macht Schnell Test Pipes
- AKG Engine/Trans Solid Mounts
- CAE Shifter

- AJ Hartmann Canards
- RDSport Front/Rear Sway Bars
- Aero Performance Front Lip
- Aero Performance Rear Diffuser
- Custom 2 into 1 Exhaust with Rear Muffler
- Custom Splitter
- Bimmerworld Carbon Fiber Headlight Delete
- CoolShirt System
- Lifeline Fire Suppression

Brett Smrz posted a few laps at Buttonwillow with the car. Sounds great! Brett is a hell of a driver.

Interior is still loud with ear plugs. We didn't have time to add a muffler. Hopefully we have time to do it this week before another event with Speed Ventures at Buttonwillow.

After the last post we made some changes

We installed solid Macht Schnell Diff/Subframe Bushings, Fall Line Carbon Drive Shaft, RDSport F/R Sway bars, added a muffler and changed the tip of the exhaust, and AJ Hartman canards.
