The class you run doesn't allow engine modifications right?

no you cant tune only by 5%

you can remap

exhaust can be changed race cats allowed not manifold

air filter also can be changed but has to use oem air box

so easy to get 5% and keeps cost down

I should add that I will not be racing this car until i have learnt the many corners and bumps of the ring but 2014 maybe

yes its a n45b20 173 bhp which is not alot but has a 4.1 final drive and a close ratio box as standard so faster than you would think, more like a 325i.

Oh I see. Sounds kind of similar to the GTS Class rules for NASA (racing series over in the US).

Very cool build. Subscribed for updates

Great job on the cage. Where did you attach the cage to the lower rear suspension? Subframe?
