3rd, That looks like a ton of fun and i wish my car was fast.

Also did you use Betalink or 3M to install your spoiler?
Hi thanks. I ordered it with the wing delete and the BMW performance spoiler was installed at the port. Not sure what they use but whatever it is, it works great and has stood up to many 150+ MPH runs.

Looks great, i would get a subtle front lip, not to outrageous looking, in cf to match the wheels. That would finish the look imo

None on the M3 given what I've done with it

Full warranty on the 911 up to October 2016 @ 100,000 miles. Even the tune (3 maps - stock, 91 oct, and 100 oct) that I'm getting from Champion/GIAC provides for a full warranty in case Porsche voids it.

So when are you running your two cars against each other?

Haha not really a fair race in any discipline! There are just sooooo different.

From a dead stop the Porsche is just crazy fast. Almost as quick to 60 as the Veyron. No way the M3 can compete. Same with a short/tight track. The level of grip is insane.

But on a roll-on race where HP reigns or a really high speed track where both HP/balance are the most important factors, the M3 shines.

Hey, in your initial post you talk about why your car doesn't spin from the get-go but I am still a little bit confused. Is it because of the camber plates (which you only have up front, correct?)? I am going to be going with a 625 kit or maybe 650 in spring and I am deciding between different rim setups right now and if I don't have to run a 305/30 and 275/30 combo, I would be insanely happy! That is way too much weight and the understeer would be crazy. Let me know what you mean, thank you.

Great cars by the way!

Great cars by the way!
Tires are the key! So I am running my track tires at the moment - 18" RS3s 285 35 18 in the rear and they are horrible at straight line traction unless they are heated up.

My street set up is MUCH better for straight line traction - 19" Michelin Pilot Super Sports 275 35 19. The grip is always there (except don't try them at the track on a hot day - they will melt).

And let me clarify a bit...traction is there when punching it in first gear up to 5K rpm (but not with launch control). 2nd gear I get full traction except above 7,500 RPM and third gear I start losing traction above 8K RPM. But this tire spin is much more controllable, particularly with Euro MDM. With DSC off, it can become downright dangerous as I've had the rear end come out completely at 70mph in 2nd gear and had to countersteer to avoid wrapping the car around a tree.

I hear RE11's and R888's are also great for straight line traction.

Both cars look great! Bring the Porsche to the December 1st speed district event

How do you like the Turbo S so far?

I know EXACTLY what you are saying (happened to me on my last track event)... I wish there was a better street/track alternative but I can't seem to find anything better for both.

Have you ever researched Dunlop?

Dunlops are one of the OE tire choices for the C63 AMG Black Series Coupe.
