This is my last year tracking the 335. Most upgrades come off at the end of the season, that'll be my incentive to get a proper setup going over the winter.

E36 M3s rule at the turns, weight > power.
It'll be sad to see you go Peter, but I wish you happier times in whatever car you choose to make your track car. It sure was fun building up the Limp mode thread with you.

So far I've been to 2 track events this year, and haven't gotten a single Limp mode yet. Replace the vanos solenoids, and finally got my cooling figured out. The endless upgradeability of the 335I is what is making me keep it. I've now finally figured out how the car works. I'm adding a catless dp, and FMIC, and then it's on to a wavetrack LSD.
