We were prepared to swap to a metal hardtop before BMW Club Racing said we couldn't. Car is pretty stock except for: roll cage and safety equipment (seat, fire system, harnesses), KW Varient suspension, custom fixed camber plates, Dinan stage 2 software, Hawk HT-10 brake pads, BBS wheels and Nitto NT01 tires.stuartc said:The weight of that sunroof and the frame is in all the wrong places isn't it. Is it standard or what have done to the car apart from springs & dampers and brakes?
Much like an endurance race, all of the classes of BMW Club Racing are on the track at the same time. Since our car is a stock class car, we are among the slower classes. Here we are being chased by a J-Prepared car (modified 2.8L e36) that is a faster car.Alan_M said:From those pics, I guess your up against M3's more or less. How does the 135 hold up against them?
I may not have answered your question very well the first time. You are correct. When we are pursuing track records or going up against a car in class, it is usually against a 1995 M3 ltw (US version with 240 stock hp) or 1996-1999 M3s that have dropped weight and done the rear diff. ratio change.Alan_M said:From those pics, I guess your up against M3's more or less.

Hehe, that was actually us on the way to Vegas for SEMA week.m6569 said:I saw a VERY similar looking car on i15 (LA - Vegas) on 2nd Nov and thought it looked stunning - maybe you've got a copy-cat on the paint job!!
Yeah, that is Turn 1 at California Speedway, a NASCAR D-Oval track and the car really gets loaded in that corner, but Turn 2 is where it gets hard to keep it low on the track, as to the car, it continues to be a decreasing radius corner.[email protected] said:Looking low, must have been carrying some speed on that inclined corner
Thanks - it's been a pretty fun car to campaign. And they are going to make some rules changes for 2011 that will allow the car to be even faster.clarkden said:
