Torque will work in a straight line at brand new. Skill is what is required to move an M3 around a track at speed. And Mods!
Having said this I have no mods nor seem to need them. Tires are all I have done recently, I dont drag race or have any care to. I love hustling my car around. It is great to actually drive an M3. Daily for work. It is hilarious. I work with a cool guy older dude who loves his Dodge Ram Diesel with 500 ft/lbs torque. Put him in a rental and he becomes a death trap and I strap on the belt and hang on. He has no ability to drive a regular car, and the bottom line is, we drive a "close to" perfect car. I guess my suggestion for a new thread would be "how skilled of a driver are you?" Be honest with yourself and answer.
