agreed.... m3 is way way easier to work on. cant even do a simple spark plug change on the 911 without an engine drop. the price you pay for having the engine at the wrong end of the car. oh wells.

Agreed. Seb did a great job seting up the green machine. Balanced setup. I havent had to rotate tires yet. Just saying. Nice even were front and back and side to side.

So I heard, through my machinist, that Mr Patrice Brisebois has sold his Ferrari(s) and is now racing a Porsche GT3 RSR...
Damn! these beasts need to be serviced after every 20 hours of racing.
20 hours : 30k$
40 hours : 60k$ full engine rebuild
60 hours : 30k$
80 hours : 60k$ full engine rebuild
and so on...

Redonkulous! Specially for anything but actual races. You can get a few full track prepped M3 for just the cost of those rebuilds.

Nope. Not me. Looks similar. I think it is FifthGear from Montreal Racing.

I've been busy working on my winter chump car, '98 Toyota Carolla 4 door. Needs lots of work ... I may just end up leaving it as is.

Ken, I completely forgot about your exhaust. Will it fit in a 6.5' pickup? I recall Seb telling me to bring my trailer to pick it up. How many pieces is it in?

mad...where the heck is he going to race this thing ? i guess he is going to buy himself into some sort of series and just take the car racing. for regular track days, a normal track prepped car or even a GT3 Cup car would suffice.

I think it might fit, if you let the front part of it hanging out in the rear. It's 1 piece. Would be great if you could, as I suspect I might go back to stock at one point. The car is not too street friendly ha ha! Stiff suspension with loud brakes and exhaust, ha ha!

Wait what's this about an exhaust? Did you change yours again?
