MitchZ06 has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
My god I hope they take it to Le Mans to be rid of the DeltaWang...

I believe it's just in for Le Mans. There is no place in the WEC for non championshipscoring prototypes.

Each ACO series will accept entries they deam of interest, if a car has gained a Le Mans entry, it's a fair bet they can probably run in any ACO race.

Teams can still enter individual races.

I don't think there are plans on running the Schwing in the WEC aside from Le Mans even if it is allowed as an entry of interest (ha) or whatever. Unfortunately, it may only be ALMS fans who see the thing outside of Le Mans. Well, maybe it will be at Sebring. I don't know. Maybe Don will send it on a tour of the WEC as a way of showing the ACO his prick. Then again, I don't know if the Schwing would pass Middle Eastern obscenity laws.

The only place I see this happening is at PLM... where they certainly are likely to be desperate for entries and press.

That would be my guess too if it happens. Atlanta is Porsche NA's home. I don't know if that helps any, but it can't hurt. I'm quite sure the ALMS will allow it to run UNC without too much of a rules fuss.

True. That said, the combination of the DeltaWing and camel toe might be too much for the desert folk to handle!

Well, maybe this video offers some relevance to Porsche and the Schwing. Then again, maybe not. Frankly, I think Jaguar is of greater relevance. Again, maybe not.

*Needless to say, you probably should not watch any DeltaWing related videos at your office if they are sensitive about such material!

From RacingPal.com
BMW M Coupe, 2002
Bmw M Coupe

've owned this coupe for the past 5 years, and as much as it hurts to say, it is now time for me to part ways with it. I am the 3rd owner. The previous owner is an enthusiast and has quite a few BMWs, and before that, the car was a corporate lease.

This car has a clean title with 87,440 miles on it. I have records up to 2012 which was really the last time I drove the car aside from a couple of track days. I have receipts for most of the aftermarket parts on the car. The car has always been garaged when it wasn't being driven. It had a small fender bender under previous ownership on the rear right fender, but the repair on it was excellent. The paint matches perfectly and there are no waves or orange peel in the finish.

This car is in excellent condition both mechanically and cosmetically. There is a ding on the driver door and rear right fender from parking incidents caused by other drivers. There are a few drilled holes in the bumper from mounting splitters and canards, and the hatch has been drilled for the rear wing. The paint could use some detailing, and the front end has some small chips from track use, but otherwise it is in good shape. Because it was a track car, I have taken meticulous care of the mechanical aspects of the car.

Most of the interior has been removed, but I have most of the original interior parts except the seats, head unit, subwoofer plastic trim cover, and leather hockey sticks (the ones that are on the side of the console). I can put everything back in before selling if you would like. I have not put the car on a scale, but the car should be about 250lbs lighter than stock. It is a blast to drive!

All of the original parts that I still have (which is most of them) will be included with the sale. This includes headers, catbacks, interior parts, cooling parts, and quite a few miscellaneous parts. You could restore this car back to factory spec with less than $1500. You will also need to install a passenger seat if that's something you want.

As it sits, the car does not pass CA smog due to deleted cats. You will need to figure out how to get it smogged, though I could point you in the right direction. The sale includes the stock headers/O2 sensor, so you could reinstall those to pass smog.

This sale is intended for track day enthusiasts or somebody who wants a fun weekend car. It is driveable on the street with a just a few mods (namely: quieter exhaust and seats without side head protection). I posted a 1:58.2 in this car at Buttonwillow 13CW with a passenger in its current trim. With a better driver and no passenger, there is no doubt in my mind that this car can do a 1:56 or better. I have always erred on the side of safety and reliability on this car (and it shows in my lap times compared to the fast guys). It has been as non-abused as you can get with a dedicated track car.

The engine is bone stock aside from a Shark software flash. I bought this mainly to improve the throttle response as it had quite a bad input delay from the factory on the stock throttle map. It revs to 8100, but I have always short shifted at 7600-7800RPM on track to keep oil temps down. I changed the oil every 5000 miles when it was street driven and every 3 events (about 1200 miles) after it became a dedicated track car. It has always been filled with Castrol TWS 10W-60. The only other engine mods would be the headers and exhaust. I added an aftermarket oil cooler and repositioned it behind the kidney grill for better airflow. The oil temp has never exceeded 260šF which is the normal oil temp you would see on an S54 motor on track. The car has never been overheated or overrevved, and I have been careful to do cooldown laps in between hot laps during sessions on hot days. I left the motor as stock as possible to avoid any engine reliability issues, and there has not been any.

The coilovers have about 20k miles on them with about 18 track days. They are still in good working condition (as evidenced by the most recent lap times). All the bushings have been replaced and have less than 20k miles on them. All the adjustments work perfectly, so you can tune the suspension to your liking.


Here are some things I replaced/refreshed recently:
- Guibo (10k miles)
- CV Joints (5k miles)
- Studs (2k miles)
- New radiator (5k miles, filled with water / water wetter)
- Tranny & diff oil (1.5k miles, 3 track days)
- Engine oil (800 miles, 1 track day)
- Rebuilt & upgraded steering rack (8k miles)
- Ventus TD tires have 1 track day on them (~100 miles, 5 heat cycles)
- Battery is about 2 years old and kept on a battery tender when not driven
- New alternator (10k miles)


Here is the list of mods. I know I'll never recover the full value of what I've put into this car, so it is priced accordingly.
