    Racing a few M3's tomorow.. read!Guys from www.m3forum.com

    Hey guys.. so my buddy is a member in M3forum.com... anyways few weeks ago I posted our race and I had him by 2-3 cars ..however he has the M3 smg convertible.. much heavier and thinks that a 6 spd is faster. So he was trying to arange for me to run a few of his buddies from the forum.. So there is a Post of mine there..check it out..LOL. The topic is Anyone want to hook up with a STI in the GTA (my area Toronto) the poeple there are really cool ..I wansn't like "hey you losers My sti will smoke u all lets meet!!" like some trolls do in forums by calling people out.I just said that I had alot of respect for the M3's and if I can afford one I would have one but I have a few mods and was curiosue how I would do VS a coupe.. which is true. They responded pretty well I got a few emails , Pm's and phone numbers.. I will hook up with these guys tomorow. They will prob tape it I will try . Now I wanted to see what you guys think of the outcome..
    I have a STI with 19 psi of boost downpipe . exhaust and ECUTEK... dynod my car bone stock 233 whp after my mods dynod just over 270 whp. That is roughly 345-355 hp at the crank. I have 315 lbs of tourqe now at the wheels too. I know from a dig I will own it ( even if I were stock) but how do u think I will do from a roll? I took the m3 convetible by 2-3 cars from a roll but these will be coups and maybe be abit modded.. anyways ..

    looks like you got your work cut out for you. i wouldnt doubt that one of em' will be modded. and hes the guy that will walk you. but otherwise i would guess the e46 is going to perform basically the same no matter the trim level. obviously the convertible is heavier. also i always was told that the SMG's were better than the 6-speeds. we will see i guess. and dont bother racing those porkers from a dig unless one of em beats you.

    I say you will barely win against one. Stock E46 M3's drop around 260whp, and less torque to the wheels stock. It will be very close, thats for sure..

    Yes, but that wing can't be helping your aerodynamics at speed...

    I still don't get why do M3 folks like to "prove" their car is faster and better than the others. you would rarely see AMG ppl do the same thing.

    with that said, go kick their ass.

    the wing probably only starts to work at speed above 70-80mph which it starts creating heck of a lot more downforce and slow the car down.

    so yeah, you're right, but only if he couldn't finish the M3 off by then.

    But the M3 isn't really that efficient to reduce drag too.

    might be because most recent AMG cars will decimate most stock (or close to stock) cars on the road...

    Also, i believe that the AMG target audience for the most part might be a little older/mature than those the M-brand is after.
