E92 M3 Race Build

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
So the part out it is complete and the racecar build is nearly finished. The car is almost completely prepped and ready for this years Race Season.

Missed the Road Atlanta race this weekend, but shooting for Mid-Ohio end of march and all the rest after that. There were a few requests to see the finished product so here is the cage build and some other pics.

manonfire E92 M3 build




Here is a little information on the build.

2008 BMW M3, purchased new.
Started using it for HPDEs / Autox right away.

Here is a test and tune day at Watkings Glen Int'l after a Engine tune and full exhaust update. (Notice the dash is stil in, all the flashy lights, and yes, the key fell out of the ignition!)




Here is a video from an event that I was instructing, last summer. Launch sound with new exhaust. Again, front remnants of interiror remain.


Some pics from this past Monday. The splitter is only test fitted at this point. Will be building something more permanent.

Very nice, and one of the first E9x non-motorsports chassis out there. Most people would not touch a street chassis because of the electronic complexity. I know an electrical engineer that had trouble with an E46, never mind an E9x.

Looks like you would be a G stock or prepared or a D-Mod in BMWCCA club racing and probably a GTS infinity in NASA! Who do you plan to run with? I would love to see it out on track. BMWCCA is at Road Atlanta next weekend....
