So, it's better, and better, each time. Well almost. Once you nail a certain turn, you're screwed on the next one, because you're on a different line. All in all - one word = FANTASTIC outing! YOu have to come to the next one. That's why I want better suspension. I think I could have done better with it. Still the most important upgrade I'm concentrating on is the pilot - moi!
Hate Shannonville to rough of a track.
I always loved high speed tracks and heavy breaking, Mosport here I come.

Any cars are welcome the more prepped the better esp for my late night runs down some of Niag finest roads. I love to put my 4 Pot calipers to the test.

Should be around MID may that we start meeting up semi Reg.

I still have to buy a set of tires for my third set of rims. And install my mounts and lowering springs. Yummy H&R Race!

My speedo goes up to 260Kmh. But then I havent seen the car for over a week, and I had it only for one week. However I'm sure the spedo goes to 260Kmh

know your facts!

there is no way on gods green earth a srt4 will smoke a stock m3 it cant even take an evo or sti and those two dyno at about 260hp at the wheels and that would be a good race with an m3. I do it all the time at lebanon valley(albany,ny). I'll be there this sat and i'll let you know if anything changes.and it won't.

FYI m3 at the wheels 276hp.

The E36 M3 = SRT4 the deciding factor would be the driver
The E46 M3 > SRT4

no it wouldnt, SRT-4 should be able to kick a E36 m3 in the ass each and every time, launching them isnt hard they have diffs stock, they have more hp and are lighter. They frequently do 14 flats (people have recorded 13.8-9s stock) on the 1/4mile and have more torque at every RPM compared to the m3.

unless the neon driver is handicapped he should smoke it every time.

new m3s, well haha thats just funny it wont be even close but olders ones, sorry no chance. Not to mention what they can do with a simple boost controller for 25bucks made in home depot. Thats just funny.

i just wanna get my facts straight. what generation M3 are u talking about.

cause the only facts i know are these

US E36 M3 3.0L and 3.2L 240 hp
Euro E36 M3 3.0L 286 hp
Euro E36 M3 Evo 3.2L 321 hp
E46 M3 3.2L 333 hp

I think an SRT-4 could take the US spec E36 M3 but not the others.

just my $0.02
