lukester does the Nordschleife BTG 7:31 in E92 M3

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
we're getting there.
fastest time I had on tape was a 7:36min from last year.
here's a 7:31 Bridge to Gantry which could have been easily
a 7:2x min on a trackday where you pass the first bridge with 170mph.
At that point I just started accelerating - so a big loss.

my sector times compared to a M3 GTS are faster
but still - I'd love to have the 4.4 GTS engine
and yes - the 6speed manual is slower - but it's much more fun and
that's why I do it.

for a do it yourself garage build I'm pretty happy with my M3.

Current specs/mods:

KW 3way suspension
4:10 diff
some solid bushings at the rear subframe
GT4 front lip and rear spoiler
GFK hood and rear trunk lid
Full rollcage
2x Recaro seats
Schroth 6point harness
CAE shifter
Macht Schnell pulleys
Evolve software
Akrapovic exhaust
265/35 or 285/30-18 Michelin Cup tires all around
StopTech ST40 all around
a lot of stickers as every sticker gives you ~2sec per lap
removed some not needed crap out of the car
to try to compensate the rollcage which is 141lbs/64kg
big engine oil cooler,active differential cooling
and a upgraded power steering cooling



here's the HD link - enjoy - comment and subscribe



And some onboard "outtakes"

Lukester--congrats on the great time!

Also--random fact--I saw you at the Nurburgring about this time last year. I may even have some pictures of your car! I snapped a quick pic of you driving by because I KNEW I recognized your car from somewhere. It's taken me this long to realize I had seen your car before here on M3Post.

Keep up the great driving!

I love your videos as well as what you've done with the car. By chance would you be comfortable sharing more about your CAE shifter setup? I've been contemplating one but cannot find an examples of an E92 installation, other than the limited peeks I've gotten at your interior through the videos you post

Does anyone know if removing the top speed limiter shaves off some time on the N-ring due to car hitting higher speeds on the straights (assuming car is stock but speed limiter removed)?
