Back to iND for more Mods....

I track. I've been doing it for a few years and am addicted to it. Six friends and I go together and whatever you need, someone always has it. Planning 20 track days this year.

The M3 is a very capable track vehicle and mine is still dual purpose (street/track). I'm blessed that my M3 runs great, is reliable and is fast. However many have advised me to consider upgrading my safety equipment.

So, I visited with Steve from VAC Motorsports. He had several fixed back seats for me to try and get sized up. We discussed 6 pt harnesses and the new NecksGen product. They have a cool operation (I reminded myself to stop back later this summer to do a few Dyno pulls). With everything figured out I then asked him to ship it all to iND.

The Car Carrier is coming Wednesday to take my M3 to iND. There Ilia, Nate and all of their Magicians will:

1. Install a Custom Engineered Fall-line bolt-in Roll Bar (half cage).
2. Install Racetech 4009W seats.
3. Install 6 point harnesses.
4. Remove the rear seats and install a custom designed Alcantara closeout.
5. Install a Motorsport24 Oil Cooler.
6. Upgrade the software and pulley on my ESS VT-1 Supercharger.
7. Change my "Lifetime Fill" DCT transmission fluid.

My M3 is "wintering" in IL for the next 2 months.
I've asked iND to take pictures so I can post.

The wait begins....

Looks like another great set of mods!

The roll bar is a nice addition to your SC and MCS 2-ways

Excellent seat choice

Which brand of 6-pt harness did you select?

Nice list. Yeah tracking becomes a slippery slope. It looks like you are moving toward full race car with this list. Once you start installing roll bars and rear seat deletes you know its time for a dedicated track car.

Thanks Donnie, I blame You (teasing)! You got me started on this next round of mods by once again "coaching" me - Thank you! TRS Magnum Superlite 6pt with 3" harness that can be used with NecksGen. Thought I would stay 3" so Passenger's w/o Hans can still ride along. Also thought I would try out the NecksGen this season. Package Deal from VAC.

I'm afraid you may be right. I may be pushing the "dual purpose" a bit.

Great choice of seats BTW,!!

Haha...Chris, I have a feeling your wife blames me for this, and the last, round of mods

You're welcome but I'm not sure I did much "coaching"...

Chris, when we met it was VERY clear you were BMW crazy! Even with all the mods you had done to your car, you were so excited to see my then 100 percent stock ///M3. That was great!

Chris, nice list of mods. Will you get any more head room with those seats. I am thinking about doing something similar.

Did you make a suspension mod?

See ya at the track when you come to Summit.
