I had set this car up for the 9hour endurance race. The time i had was 0'54.905.
What i had learned about this car is it handling before the roll cage and after only counts if you were to tune out the weight. It had somewhat of a simularity to my 330i for the twin ring, it wants to grip when it accels or decels. But during the runs in this car, I found out that it can be completely opposite if the car is not handled with care. NOTE I HAD USED THE TRANS TRICK

Trial with racing slicks 0'51.017 trial with sport tires 0'54.905

TO CLEAR THINGS UP I DID BOTH A AND B-SPEC
EXCEPT 24 HOUR RACES WHERE I DO ONLY UP TO 3 HOURS AND LET THE SYSTEM RUN ON ITS OWN
NEW LAP TIME 0'50:000 FLAT.
NOTE: THIS IS NOT THE 320i RACE CAR NOR THE SETUP FOR NURBURING AKA THE GREEN HELL

The Following Line-up and some surprising results
Updated 12/21/2008 4:21 PM Post a reply Quote this post View DjWess's info
OK so far here are the BMW M3's stats:
Best lap: 0'54.999 Pits every 18-22 Laps for tires and every 54 Laps for gas with 6 litres left
But the time coming out for tires 1'15.838 and add 10 seconds to that time for gas. As with my last tune up aka 330i, this car is also so unforgiving to tire wear Crybaby .

Now for the Opposition Line-up:

2002 Mazda RX-7 Sprint R Type A (FD)
Best Lap 1'04.640 Pits in every 36 laps. OMG Eek Now my advice is to actually get a car that has 300bhp stock just to survive. This car will come in second over the.........

2000 Nissan SKYLINE GT-R V-spec ll
Best time 1'05.768 Pits in every 24 laps. Smokin Am I smokin weed or something, a SKYLINE that pits every 24 laps is weird A Little Slow . This car could possiblly become a challenge with the RX-7 since they both come equip with the manufactures turbine kit. Unlike some cars the....

2003 Mazda RX-8 Type-S (J)
Best time 1'05.506 and pits every 30-31 Laps. OK how is it that a Natually Aspired Rotary Engine car that pits every 30 laps not paass up the SKYLINE but it can keep up with it though. This car do so some characteristics of both understeer and oversteer on the Tsukuba but for being a FR layout car, it had overpowered the.....

2003 Subaru LEGACY B4 2.0 GT
Best time 1'05.813 and pits every 24 laps. For a 4WD car that suppose to show great character for traction, its not showing very much. 3 out of 5 times in the endurance race it would be overlapped by the RX-8. Now I don't know if it was equiped with a turbo kit from subaru, all I know is, this is not as bad as the next car. That car being the........

2005 BMW 330i
Best time 1'06.593 and pits every 26 laps. Now after I seen this, i was pissed. How is it that I make this car for The twin ring 8 hour race but it sucked in the 9 hour tsukuba race. But the i realized that what I can conclude form this.

OVERALL THOUGHS AND FEELINGS:
This race doesn't depend on speed. This endurance race looks for 3 things. Two being acceleration and grip. the last being the time and laps you enter the pits and the time you leave. These three things will be the determing factor on who shall win the race.
Have fun while you race others. If you don't why are you racing in the first place?
