What an interesting day today was. My other son calls and tell me he bought another car. Not a big deal, he does that. So he shows up with it so I can see it.
This is not just a car! It's a 1995 BMW M3 with 67K miles. The previous owner had it set up for track days somewhere on the west coast. Josh had it shipped in and already had his first track day with an instructor at Lyme Rock CT. This thing is awesome.
I can barely fit into those seats.
He says he ran it between 6k and 8k RPM's. "Uh, yeah Josh but the red line is 6K RPM's." That's where the previous owner told him it performs best. It has cams and headers, a full roll cage, differential cooler, an X brace on the bottom, sticky tires, and all. This thing is very much a race car.
After (4) 30 minute track sessions he says his concept of driving is completely changed. But that he has allot to work on. And of course he took me for a ride, around a local hair pin turn, followed by a panic stop to show me how good those huge brakes work. All I can say is WOW.
Here are some of the rubber marks from hot rubber that flew off of the other cars on the track. It had quite a few of them.
Mom is not the happiest with the new hobby. I think it's great.
