    I like it too, an M3 doesn't have to be supercharged. Certainly not if just track performance is what one has in mind.

    I wouldn't put a blower on it. Looks perfect to me. I would take the reliability factor of a NA motor for those long hot track sessions.

    The owner of this car is fairly active on the other M3 forums. He is a pretty avid track head. If I remember correctly he quickly upgraded from the KW V3s to Moton Clubsports.

    Thanks for sharing Sticky!

    A blower isn't needed as it would most likely hurt him on hot summer days. He has his modified GTR when he needs the extra power

    Ohh crap now I remember where I saw this car on the forums. It was here! lol. About a month or 2 ago, I saw him at willow springs. He was hitting 1:30-1.29. No blower nothing. This guy raped the track with him driving too! Not even the pro driver with Shokri's 600 +whp car could go lower than 1:35. That just shows that power really doesn't mean much if you have that kind of traction and driving experience. He was raping the GT3's and z06's like nothing, literally nothing.

    Wow that's awesome to hear. Ricky seems to be a very knowledgable individual regarding car setup. I'm not sure if it's been mentioned, but he started his own company R's Tuning. They seem to be getting fairly busy doing lots of alignments and corner balance, in addition to the typical installs.

    Awesome build. Blower would not be the way to go for a track car. Pulling weight is better than adding FI IMO. Seems this guy knows how to do it right and is addressing the proper things to upgrade for track use.

    VAC/VF seem to be doing pretty good with it. once car is tuned to max, and driver skill has plateued, S/C is whats needed to take it to the next level.
