Cool! :thumbup:

I don't know if you were even trying, but that silver E46M3 was kinda' hard to catch, wasn't it? :D
That E46 was fast :yikes:

I am suprised at how quickly it ran away from the M coupe, but it was on race tires. I would expect the M3 to be a bit faster anyways, better suspension, longer legs, and less drag.

Nice vids, AC! Fast car! :thumbup:

edit: what kind of E36 was it that you passed? M3?

Actually what happened is that after the late pass I was in second gear instead of third and I lost momentum coming onto the straight, so it's not as bad as it seems but the shorter gearing of the 6 speed and larger rims helped as well. On a normal lap I would make up the top speed advantage with better braking, but not enough to pass him! The e46 M3 is very good car, it is very easy to drive close to the limit. The Coupe is a little less forgiving:thumbup:
I'll bet that long section on the speedway really helps cool the brakes down too :thumbup:
