Thumbs up E91 335d being chased by Kumho cup E36 racecar at castle combe

Hi Guys, thought Id share a vid of my E91 335d being chased on track.
Had to back off towards the as coolant and oil temps got too high, need waterless coolant, alloy rad and large oil cooler next!
Mods on my car:
3"turbo back exhaust system
Wagner intercooler
Turbo dynamics 420 turbos
6 piston 360mm brakes
3 way adjustable coilovers
Dyno'd at 425bhp & 812nm.

Hope you enjoy the footage & the smoke!

The thick clouds of black diesel exhaust to blind everyone behind you is a good tactic. Lol, jk. Nice driving. That guy look like he was getting angry he couldnt catch you

You definitely had him on the straights but he had you on handling...but he can't drive his car back home...at least not comfortably.

Video reminds me why I hate the action days at Castle Combe, great day to go to, but I just would not bother going on track, driving standard is very low, not to mention how expensive it is!

Weird to think I've driven my E91 around there as a camera car, and yours is lapping it much faster than my actual track car!

Cheers guys, the smoke will eventually reduce once I am running water/meth and she's been mapped again. Handling wise, I just need to set the damping rates and change my anti roll bars which should make a mark able difference.

I switched out to m3 parts for suspension. Do you have those parts in addition to the coil overs? My suspension looks stiffer than what I'm seeing but you power is beyond what I have on my D

I have polybushed most parts and the front end components have pretty much all been replaced with high performance items except the anti roll bar. The softness and lack of body control in the vid are because I had not long fitted the suspension and the damping rates need setting up along with roll bar upgrade. Did you fit M3 anti roll bars or aftermarket ones?

I did the m3 roll bars front and rear the shock tower braces M3bits front and rear vorschlag camber plates, rogue rear arms ohlins r&t e90 non m front and e90 M3 rear. Mono all for front steering upper arms. Also I have -2.5 front and -1.5 rear. Handles really well now.

I just did M3 bushings and tower and roll bars. Daily drive and thought would be good enough. Haven't tried poly or aluminum.

Lastly I do have a quaiffe limited slip rear. I think that is key for turning in car.

I did all the work minus alignment and quaife limited myself slowly in my garage/shop. Was a prolonged learning hobby experience.

Like with your car, I think people are surprised at how fast a diesel can be at the track. Is entertaining😎

I still need upgraded brakes. I ran cl6 plus pads on stock calipers and rotors. No fade but brake dust is horrific with sintered metal grinding away the rotor and hardening he iron on the wheels

I find theres more feel with my new brakes and no matter how hard I have been on them they never fade, although brake dust is always an issue with track specific pads. Its the torque coming out of the bends where diesels have the advantage, I had a fair few people coming up to me asking what had been done to the car after that session. Its badged as a 320d

I have been toying with the idea of an LSD maybe a drexler, but I will do that once I find out how much a manual conversion will set me back. Id like to get the car handling on rails as have a few mates with tracked E46 M3's and I struggle to stick with them when the going gets twisty, on the straights though the advantage is mine.

Is the car more controllable with the LSD when the back end steps out? As at the moment when it does step out its always a tad unpredictable once it straightens up?
